This is the 12th week of the 2017-18 National Football League regular season. Courier Publications/VillageSoup's "Pigskin Pundits" will match wits with a guest each week to pick the winners of the games.

The weekly pundits who will participate in the 19th consecutive year of the pro football selections will be Courier Publications/VillageSoup owner Reade Brower, Sports Director Ken Waltz and Associate Sports Director Mark Haskell.

Games are picked for “winners,” not on a point spread, but simply the final score.

Those interested in being a weekly guest picker should email Haskell at mhaskell@courierpublicationsllc.com.

The Week 12 guest is Sandy Cameron on Belfast.

Thus far, the guests have been Kyle Durkee of Waldoboro in Week 1 (12-3), Laurie Cole of Rockland in Week 2 (11-5), Cameron Watson of Searsport in Week 3 (7-9), Ryan Snell of Waldoboro in Week 4 (10-6), Tom Peaco of Rockland in Week 5 (6-8), Collin Landry of Rockland in Week 6 (7-7), Anthony Raye of Rockland in Week 7 (10-5), Zack Miller of Rockland in Week 8 (13-0), Scott Case of Belfast in Week 9 (8-5), Rachel Coor of Union and New York, N.Y. in Week 10 (10-4) and Ryan Verrill of Warren in Week 11 (9-5).

Miller holds the distinction as the best weekly guest at 13-0 in Week 8, while Durkee is second at 12-3 in Week 1.

In Week 11, Brower finished 10-4, while Waltz and Haskell ended 9-5.

Thus, after 11 weeks, Brower has surged into the lead at 104-56 (.650 winning percentage), while the guests are 103-57 (.644), Haskell 91-69 (.569) and Waltz 89-71 (.556).

So, at this point, Brower holds a one-game lead over the guests, 13-game cushion over Haskell and whopping 15-game advantage over Waltz as the season heads down the home stretch.
