Week four is about to begin. It's hard to believe we are approaching the quarter mark of the 2013 season but here we are. Before we get to this week's picks, let's see where we stand.
After holding the top spot the first two weeks, SOB jumped past me into the overall lead with an impressive 11-5 mark last week. What made it so impressive was the week as a whole was the toughest week to predict with just one other of the staff coming out with a winning record - Marcus Allen Krause with a 10-6 mark.
Marcus did this by being the only person to correctly predict Cleveland would beat Minnesota. Even though he made the pick before he realized the Browns were starting Brian Hoyer and promptly regretted his pick, the pick remained and he was glad it did.
I just kept my head above water with an 8-8 record to remain in second place on the season thanks to 12-4 records in the first two weeks. Jeff Spiegel and RDreamer couldn't hit .500 last week as both came in at 7-9. The most dreadful week went to Asher Mathews who turned in a 5-11 record and it dropped him squarely in last place.
This week the consensus picks are the Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, and New Orleans. Going out on a limb as sole predictors are SOB with Tampa Bay over Arizona, Jeff picking Buffalo over Baltimore, and RDreamer picking San Diego over Dallas.
