CBS Sports' Pick Six newsletter, a treasure trove of sports content, dropped its latest edition filled with updates on the NFL, promotional offers, and sports betting insights. The edition contained a notable Cyber Monday deal featuring a 25% discount on CBS Sports store merchandise using the promo code "CYBER."
Frank Reich's Abrupt Exit
The newsletter brought to light the abrupt dismissal of Carolina Panthers' coach Frank Reich following a dismal 1-10 season start. Reich's offense was marred by poor blocking, a non-existent run game, and a receiver crew that lacked playmakers. The Panthers have a bottom-four scoring (15.7; 29th) and total offense (265.9; 30th) in 2023. Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will assume the role of interim head coach. This marks the third time in NFL history a head coach has been fired in back-to-back seasons.
Panthers owner David Tepper hinted at the impending decision when he left the locker room muttering an expletive after a 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Reich's tenure ended less than 24 hours later with an NFL worst 1-10 record, including an 0-6 mark on the road. The move suggests that the Panthers' problems go beyond just the coaching staff.
Week 12 NFL Highlights
In addition to the coaching shake-up, the newsletter covers the highlights from Week 12 NFL games. The Bills and Eagles earned high praise for their exceptional performances. The winners and losers of the week were briefly discussed, with a full list available on their website. The upcoming Vikings vs. Bears game is also generating excitement, with predictions and betting props already being discussed.
The newsletter concluded with a recap of the weekend's NFL actions and a promotion for a full podcast episode providing more detailed takeaways from Week 12.
