This is it. For all the marbles. One more chance for someone on staff to have a perfect record and one more chance to take win it. It continues to be a dead heat for the top spot between Marcus and RDreamer, with the two once again swapping positions. It's gonna be like one of those games where the winner is the team with the ball last.

Last week, the best record was 11-5, shared by three of us. But the real winner was Jeff, because part of his record was correctly picking the Browns to get their first win of the season over the Chargers. Impressive. If he hadn't picked the Broncos to beat the Chiefs, he'd have had the best record for the week.

As for this week, it looks like the staff believes even with Matt McGloin at quarterback, the Raiders will take care of the Broncos in Denver. Considering it was the Raiders run game that beat the Broncos in their last meeting, that isn't so far fetched.

This week's unanimous picks are the Vikings, Colts, Texans, Ravens, Steelers, Falcons, Chiefs, Raiders*, and Seahawks.
