same rules as before -- pick all 13 games (no Thurs night this week), and include the tiebreaker, which is the total points scored between the Patriots n Jets next Monday night

$25 to the smartest guy in the room, courtesy of mrs. dueces' wallet through JRR300, so guys, get out those handicapping forms and get cracking. Steve K, we will be looking for some new odds after last week results.

good luck all!!!!

    Ok, two are officially in, and I have Perk's picks but no point total. Keep studying those sheets guys and watch out for the paper cuts.
    Steve K, where are the odds?

  • JRR300JRR300 Posts: 1,097 ✭✭✭✭

    4 entries thus far. remember tonight's game doesn't count so you still have plenty of time to ponder those handicapping forms and get your entries in.

  • MCMLVToppsMCMLVTopps Posts: 3,594 ✭✭✭✭

    Sent my picks in.

  • JRR300JRR300 Posts: 1,097 ✭✭✭✭

    Topps has checked in with his selections, so that makes 5. Let's get those picks in.

    Where is Steve K???

    yes I did. I thought I PM's you, as you were one of the first two I received. Went out on a limb with your Bills pick this week. Good Luck.

    I need to know if Sam Darnold is starting before making picks, if so then time to go for Jets first win.

    Always the optimist! Funny thing this football thing. You would think Seattle is balling out and Buffalo is struggling on offense. Buffalo is 10th in passing yards. Seattle defense is dead last in total and passing. John Brown, Bills deep threat is finally off the injured list. 60 degrees and sunny. One of these games Wilson isn’t going to able to will Seattle to a win. Welcome the 7-2 Buffalo Bills. 🙏

    Three more in, bringing our total to 8. I'll make my picks later tonight for entry #9. Two regulars still missing, Steve K and ZipCity. Still time so get those picks in. Dueces, I'm hoping that Mrs. Dueces hasn't moved her purse to a more secure location.

    Well I couldn't bring myself to pick the Jets, even if Darnold plays his shoulder isn't 100%.

    We have no brave souls who have taken the Jets!!!! Where is Steve K when you need him.

    OK, we have two more. Zippcity is in and a new comer Brick is in(although I need his point total).

    Looks like Steve is still MIA. There is still time for any others. Cutoff is noon EDT.

    oK guys, picks are posted, but I still need a total from Brick. Sorry bout the format; I can't manage to keep the columns spaced out.
    Good luck all. Will see if I can get back with an update after the 1:00 games are finished.

    Buffalo hounded Wilson all day. 18 hits, 5 sacks, 2 fumbles and 2 interceptions. I said one of these games Wilson wouldn’t be able to bail out the 32nd ranked defense. Josh Allen? Only 31-38 415 yards, 3 TD’s and a rushing TD AND No turnovers. Say hello to the 7-2 Buffalo Bills!

    Big win by the Bills! Every except Dueces takes it on the chin that game.

    After the 1PM games, TheShow has only 1 loss, while there are 5 entries with just two (Dragon, Dueces, Darrin, Dennis and JRR). Looks like the Raiders=Chargers game at 4 will ween out a few.
    Good luck for those that still have a chance.

    Looks like a couple picked Miami. I didn't watch that game but the highlights looked good.

  • 2dueces2dueces Posts: 2,844 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The talking heads crowned the NFC West as the toughest division in the NFL. I’m not so sure after today. The only teams all 4 have beat are each other and teams with 1 or 2 wins.
    Seattle wins
    Falcons
    Patriots
    Vikings
    Cowboys

    Arizona wins
    Washington
    Jets
    Cowboys

    Rams wins
    Cowboys
    Eagles
    Giants
    Washington

    49ers wins
    Jets
    Giants
    Patriots

    OK, the 4 pm games are completed with a surprise. The Dolphins outscore the Cards in the desert; only 2 people had the Dolphins. The Raiders-Chargers toss up game goes to the Raiders as the Chargers keep losing games late.

    Right now, Dragon and Theshow each have 2 losses with Mr. Brady in tonight's game, while Dennis has 3 losses and the Saints. For the rest of us, it's back to the drawing board.

    Good luck tonight.

  • BLUEJAYWAYBLUEJAYWAY Posts: 5,164 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm glad I did not put my real $ bets on my picks. I primarily bet over score parlays. Then I don't care who wins.

    Saints 28-0 at half??? Who would'a thunk it!!!!!

  • JRR300JRR300 Posts: 1,097 ✭✭✭✭

    It looks like we have a three way tie. Dragon, Dennis and TheShow all have 3 losses; very well done. Since all three of these have the Patriots tonight, it will all come down to the points tiebreaker. Both Dennis and TheShow have 33 points, so if they are the winners, they will split the prize. Dragon has 37 points, so anything 36 and over will give him the win. At 35 points, there will be a 3 way split.
    Good luck tonight. Dueces, is there any change in that envelope?????

    There is a reason I chose 33.

  • JRR300JRR300 Posts: 1,097 ✭✭✭✭

    Good reason, but it looks like it's not going to help you here. Best you can get is a split.....almost like kissing your sister!

    Yeah. almost

  • 2dueces2dueces Posts: 2,844 ✭✭✭✭✭

    33 is a pretty low total for a modern NFL game. 8 teams put that up by themselves yesterday. But we are talking about the worst offense in NFL history and the 29th ranked offense this year.

    Thanks everybody, I really can't believe I won. I am in shock, I just won by pure dumb luck. A lot of the games are a flip of the coin, so it's really tough to pick them. I just appreciate this community we have here, and you guys have become like a family. Thanks everyone.

    @doubledragon has graciously declined this weeks prize pool and has decided to let it ride again for next weeks winner. This place is amazing. That’s 3 or 4 weeks in a row the winner has allowed the contest to continue. This place is truly a great community. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
