We all seemed to fare pretty well overall this week, with 75% of us earning double-digit winning picks, and no one posting a losing record. Phil had commented to me that the games seemed too easy to pick this week, and he was right. There wasn't a lot of dissention amongst all of us, and that made the "swing" games like New England/NY Jets, Denver/Miami, Tennessee/Cleveland, and San Diego/Seattle extremely decisive. I have to toot my own horn this week since I picked most of those games correctly, and earned a week-leading record of 13-2, moving into third place. However, Phil, Jay, and Susan (again!) scored equally admirable records of 12-3. Beth and Ray are still trailing in the contest, and their picks are starting to reflect that with more and more upsets. Ray did well this week at 10-5, mostly by picking Dallas and Tennessee, but shot himself in the foot by picking Indianapolis and Minnesota. Beth also snagged good picks by going with Arizona and Tennessee, but too many other upset picks burned her (Kansas City, Carolina, Atlanta). Regardless, it looks like they both should still finish above 500, which this year looks to be a commendable accomplishment. Kerry fumbled the ball again this week and loses ground to second place by one more game. The contest is extremely tight, with only six games separating first from sixth place. There are still five weeks left, including playoffs, so anything could happen.

Email quotes from the week:

Cody: "I'm not much of a trash talker, but I just want to say: I know I had a LOSING record last week, but that was just the calm before the storm. I'm only 13 picks out of 1st place, which means at the end of this weekend, I'll be 2 picks ahead of everyone for 1st place - that is of course with an act of GOD on my side - everyone else loses with their picks, Indy can actually pull off a win against Baltimore in Baltimore, and if Washington can hold out and whip Dallas. I have a chance! We're not going to discuss what those chances actually are though. By the way, KERRY, you are going DOWN along with everyone else! I should say good luck, but what's the point, I'm going to win this week anyway."
