At least it's the final game of the year though . Weird how they all came in 1 month, aren't they usually spread out a little?? I think the first was week 4 (October 2), 2nd was last week (7, October 23) and now week 8 (October 30)

Last week: 6-8
Season: 61-45

Week 8:
Jaguars over Titans (picked earlier)
Bengals over Redskins
Lions over Texans
Cardinals over Panthers
Seahawks over Saints
Chiefs over Colts
Jets over Browns
Pats over Bills
Raiders over Bucs
Broncos over Chargers
Packers over Falcons
Cowboys over Eagles
Vikings over Bears

This was a tough week to pick, or maybe I’m getting gun shy due to my recent successes (or lack thereof). Even my wife beat me last week, and she makes her picks based on who has the prettiest helmets. Hmmmmmmmm….

I imagine the Colts rival that streak minus the year the one year between Peyton and Luck.

SCIENCE...

8 - 7 last week
61-46 season

could be a bloodbath for SCIENCE this week as we have 9 games that are within 2 points and 3 less than 1 point. Also came in with 6 upsets, that many I don't ever recall seeing before. I fear we may be bleeding Ls this week.

JAX @ TEN (picked earlier)

WSH @ CIN (upset)

NYJ @ CLV (upset)
SEA @ N.O.
ARZ @ CAR (upset)
N.E. @ BUF (upset)
OAK @ T.B. (upset)
K.C. @ IND (upset)
DET @ HOU

S.D. @ DNV

G.B. @ ATL

PHL @ DLS

MIN @ CHI

and these 6 games vs the spread...
(1-3 last week --- 7-6 for season)

Washington (+3) vs Cincinnati
Cleveland (+2 1/2) vs New York Jets
Arizona (+3) vs Carolina
Buffalo (+6 1/2) vs New England
Indianapolis (+3) vs Kansas City
Philadelphia (+5) vs Dallas

Undefeated is undefeated no matter whether you are playing Denver, the Kansas school for the deaf, or sisters of the poor. NOT losing more than once during the regular season to any team in your division over a 15 year period is damn near impossible no matter whether you play in the AFC East, NFC North, or AFC West. Everyone else in the league over that same time frame has gotten swept at least 4 times.

Another tied game between Washington and Bengals. NFL needs to change the rules. Games shouldn't be able to end in a tie.

ANOTHER TIE! Ugh. It's time for the league to take a look at OT because there should NEVER be a tie in an NFL game.

I agree but the refs definitely played a huge role in that tie

Ehh, it was on both ends though. Bengals had some dirty hits but Josh Norman was playing dirty with holds and pass interference all game.
