This week's picks definitely had some traps to avoid. Some believed the Giants were completely dead, and picked Arizona (wrong). Others thought Indianapolis' slide would continue against Atlanta (wrong). A couple of us thought that Kansas City would take advantage of Denver's injury woes (right). Also, many knew that the Cowboys' win streak couldn't possibly continue outside the NFC East (right). Those were just a few of the highlights, but the biggest highlight is this week's winner. Satish's picks have been floundering in purgatory for most of the season, but this week they were golden, as he goes 13-2. If nothing else, those of us at the bottom of the rankings are playing for pride, and a 13-2 record goes a long way toward reaching that goal. Very little change otherwise in the rankings. The top 3 remain the same, and the only movement is Brad and Jay trading places, while Alan stays stuck in neutral between them. One other note: Beth's 9-6 tally moves her above 100 wins, so that now every player has crossed the century mark this season. Pretty good, especially since a lot of you claim to have little or no knowledge about the NFL this year!

Email quotes from the week:

Shannon: "It's amazing that even though the Packers beat the Bears twice, and now have the same record, all the Bears have to do to get into the playoffs is win this week. The Packers still need the earth to move in order to get a playoff spot."

Cody: "The Earth to move, eh? With FAVRE taking the snaps, that is verrrrryy likely!"

Kerry: "Shannon, change that Denver-KC game to Denver for me. I talked myself out of the upset."

Kerry: "I screwed up: 1. overestimating Dallas. 2. Not sticking with my KC pick over Denver. 3. Writing Indy and then changing it before sending my picks in. I guess the difference between Phil and me is that he bought his crystal ball at Neimens and I bought mine at Wal-mart."
