same rules as before -- pick all 14 games (including the Thurs night hair-pulling contest between the Falcons n Panthers), and include the tiebreaker, which is the total points scored between the Bucs n Giants next Monday night

$25 to the smartest guy in the room, courtesy of mrs. dueces' wallet

good luck!

    I'm sorry it took so long for me to get my picks in, I was struggling with the Jets vs Chiefs game.

    I have definitely once or twice almost accidentally done that. I also have seen funny things on activity pages when people made that mistake. There are a lot of people here who have a message on that page and don't even know it.

    I just subscribed to a handicapping service called "2dueces Mortal Lock Winners" in hopes it can help improve my mediocre results from last week.

    I was in Walmart the other day and they actually had for sale a fine piece of furniture specially designed to assist sports handicappers in spreading out the paper on a flat surface to assist with pinpoint accuracy the task of trying to select NFL game winners.

  • stevekstevek Posts: 24,208 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I coinflipped the Jets, but then i changed that one to 2 out of 3 and it came out Chiefs. LOL

    thanks again, Galaxy! I still couldn't figure out how to align the columns when I moved it from my spreadsheet . I had it lined up and looking okay, but when I posted it, they wound up all over.

  • galaxy27galaxy27 Posts: 3,634 ✭✭✭✭✭

    no problemo fellas.........i enjoy it

    i will say i'm starting to feel a little bit like richard dawson running the family feud.............except i hate to disappoint you, but i'm not about to kiss every single one of you guys on the lips.

    (btw in the year 2020 it begs the question, how did he pull that off?)

    @JRR300 i just create a spreadsheet, take a screenshot, drag it into this here box, and voilà

    LOL. Nothing like being eliminated after the Thursday game. One of my competitors has the same picks as me except Carolina/Atlanta. Already looking forward to next week.

    @stevek I like that you picked the Pats. You are the only one , and I hope your faith pays off. 😂

  • JRR300JRR300 Posts: 1,097 ✭✭✭✭

    interesting that of the 14 games, there are 7 that all players picked the same, and two more where the split is 9-1. just seems a little high for a typical week.

    At first perusal, and correct me if I'm wrong, it looks like only @stevek took Miami over the Rams, and New England over Buffalo

    After going 0-1 already, i'm probably going to need to win both of those games to have any chance of enjoying a $25 shopping spree on Ebay.

    I believe that's correct. No one else had the intestinal fortitude to take Tua and the Dolphins over the Rams...that is except for Steve K.

    Might be the reason @stevek is 2500-1.
    Could’ve been higher. He missed the Jets upset.

    I didn't think any odds were posted; I didn't see any. Thought he may have been too busy to post the odds because he was treating all those paper cuts he got from spreading out the racing...er I mean betting forms! :)

    It could have been intestinal fortitude involved in making those picks, but it was more likely an intestinal virus. LOL

    One pick is for sure. The Eagles roll all over Dallas. The line has moved to 10.5 and still rising. I wouldn’t doubt it to go to 12 before Sunday night.

    Steve, just think of the bragging rights you'll have if Miami and New England win on Sunday!!!! It would certainly drop the odds on you, hell maybe even make you the favorite.

    The Cowboys offense will have more penalties than points.
