It was a six-way tie for first place, with each of the people above nabbing seven correct answers. Surprisingly only one took the Broncos to cover, which they did and then some in the fourth quarter. Everyone picked the Patriots to beat the Jets, while only Zach was able to pick the Cardinals over the Falcons. This is the closest it’s been all season, with three people also getting six correct.
Ryan broke through for 12 out of 14 correct, good enough for 1st place for the second week in a row. His best pick was taking the Colts to cover, which they did and then some. Matt was the only one to pick the Jets, while all six correctly took the Packers to cover 10 points over the Browns. Lots of tough games to pick in Week 8, including the Broncos at +14 over the Redskins.
It was a tough week for our staff of pickers, as 7 was good enough for a three-way tie between Ryan, Rick and Randy. The Lions and Eagles got every vote from our top 6, while only Randy got the Chargers right and Rick was the only one to predict the Rams to cover… and oh, did they cover. We’ll be back next week to see if anyone can crack 10 correct picks in Week 7.
Hunter and Lou have Georgia upsetting Alabama and sneaking its way into the national championship game, while there are still three here that believe Texas will end KSU’s dreams of making it to a BCS bowl game. Last week before we get into bowl season!
Hunter still has a sizeable lead as we come down the stretch. This week I have Stanford beating Oregon while Rafael is the only person to pick Dartmouth to beat Princeton.
