This turned out to be quite a wild week for this contest. Not many upsets among the games, and hence those of us who picked upsets ended up on the losing end this week. Alan in particular had a rough week, scoring the worst mark of us all at 8-7. Although, Jay, Cody, and Satish also had a tough time with their picks, going 9-6. Usually, 9-6 would be a good record, but not this week, when 8 of us had eleven or more wins. Most amazingly among them is Ray's almost perfect 14-1 record. He would have had the first 100% record that I've ever seen, had the Raiders not lost the game (and the pick for all of us -- except for Beth -- good job!) So Ray's impressive mark brings him above 500 (yet he still remains in last place -- that lost week of picks still hurts). On the opposite end of the rankings, Kerry kicked Alan out of first down to third place with a fantastic 13-2 record, and now leads second place Phil by 4 games. That lead would only be 2 games if Tennessee could have avoided another 1-yard-line nightmare on Monday night. But Baltimore pulled off the amazing victory, handing only Phil and Brad an extra loss. Kerry now has been in first place for three straight weeks, but we know now that it doesn't take much for things to change quickly...

Email quotes from the week:

Alan: "Kerry is a 'girly-man' and I felt sorry for him!!! I'll be back in the lead soon!!!!"

Kerry: "Hey Alan, Seattle beat Oakland. Are you going to get on their bandwagon too?"

Alan: "No. I'm riding too many band wagons right now. Can't afford to buy all the clothing associated with supporting another team. Maybe next week, I'm waiting to see if they can win two in a row. Then I may climb aboard!"

Kerry: "While there are many toss-ups this week, the biggest one is Minnesota at Philadelphia because I hate both teams, and rooting for either one makes me want to toss-up."
