October 19 - 20
Clearly, this week was not as good to everyone as last week was. Half of the contestants
finished either at or under 500. In the race to avoid last place,
try to spare
each other to death as each underwhelms at 6-8. (Yes, you too can use the adjective "spare"
as a verb!) On the other end of the chart,

earns the most points this

Delhomme (who of course no one picked), and
his defense pick of Dallas was only 23 yards more than the week's lowest (NY Giants, who
picked). The shake-up moves
13 to 3, and
from 2 to 9. The top 3 now are:
Tony - 43.6; Ray - 40.8; Cody - 40.7.
