After a tough week in which the Raiders were road favorites for the first time in three years and the staff unanimously picked them to win, the whole staff was wrong. This week they face the Broncos with most of the staff taking the Raiders to fall.

The big winner for the second week in a row was Nitesh, who now has a two-week record of 27-4 to land him in third in the rankings. Asher got lucky and correctly picked both of the crap-fest overtime prime time games to jump into the lead with an 11-4 mark last week.

This week there are five unanimous picks. Expected winners this week are the Packers, Falcons, Cardinals, Patriots, and Giants.

Two community prognosticators matched our staff's best this week. Tyrants Hubris did it despite picking the Raiders and TAW was one of the few who correctly picked the Bears to win last week. Here are the top picks from last week.
