Phil absolutely steamrolled over all of us this week, moving out in front of the pack with a 3-game lead. His upset picks of Seattle over Denver and Tennessee over Tampa Bay helped him to smash through the competition with an 11-3 record. Kerry put up a good fight though, going a very respectable 10-4 on the week, bolstered by keen picks of the Jets over the Dolphins and the Raiders over the Colts. His mark helped push him back up to second place. Otherwise, this was another brutal week for most of us. Only half had winning records. More tough luck: Ray didn't get his picks to me, so he goes down with a rough 0-14. That means Beth sneaks out of last place this week, but only by one game!

Email quotes from the week:

Brad: "Do I have to pick this game? Can't we just pretend it doesn't exist. Let's pray for a blackout in our area. Maybe I can catch a good game on ESPN Classic? How do I designate a tie game (i.e., 3-3 or 6-6)? Ok, give me Dallas in a stinker!"

Phil: "This is my upset pick of the week. The Seahawks actually can neutralize the Broncos' strengths."

Kerry: "Jake the Fake won't bail Arizona out again."

No picks received.

Ray: "I haven't been able to follow the NFL, and hence the picks contest as well as I'd like, so this week's contest completely slipped my mind. Anyway, to make things interesting, I'll take a string of goose eggs this week. If anyone manages to lose to me at the end, they'll never hear the end of it."

Alan: "This is one of your 2nd place leaders speaking: Please get your picks in. The sooner you get them in, the sooner you realize that you're not going to catch me!"

Kerry: "Alan, I predict that Susan will beat you by season's end. So do all the smack talk you want, Mr Sneary. It will do you no good. Shannon, now that the Rams have had a close game, which band wagon will Alan jump to now?"
