Every week I put these predictions together, it strikes me "How can we already be in week __?" The season is flying by. After this week we will be halfway through the season. That's crazy to me.
That tie last week was, um, interesting. What we do in situations like that is basically the equivalent of a batter in baseball getting a walk. You don't get credit for the game one way or the other. It's as if the game didn't happen. But if the Cardinals had won it like they were supposed to, Marcus wouldn't have tied for the best record this week. Even though he was the only one to correctly pick the Eagles would beat the Vikings. I'm just sayin'.
Then there's Jeff, who apparently loves him some Jaguars cuz he was the only one to pick them to beat the Raiders last week and is again the only one to pick them this week to beat the Titans. He's also the only one picking Washington to take down the Bengals in Cincy and the Packers in Atlanta. As a great man once said "Sometimes you just gotta hang your balls out there."

The community killed us. I'm not sure how they score ties, but if everyone gets credit for them, that would explain how so many people bested our staff's best. Nubbin is once again atop the leaderboard with an impressive performance. 73.27 was tied at 12 correct picks this week. To see the entire board click here.
