Hard to believe another tie

I have three wins to my week so far........and my picking the Pats looks a bit lopsided although it is early

The Colt was lynched & strung up in the early games...

Still kicking... but currently at 3 Ws -- 6 Ls... and another stoopid TIE (since Thursday). 💀



On to our wonderful later games...

This week 2 feels like a Week 1, which is usually pretty hard to guess. I'm 4-5 throwing out the Packers tie! Yuck!

Jags have a 91.9% win percent chance against the Pats at halftime, per ESPN.

If I may, Iíd like to make a case for why ties should be scored as a loss for those picking (unless they pick a tie). We are picking outcomes of these games. An NFL has three possible outcomes for both teams involved: win, loss, or tie. We are all free to pick any of these outcomes for all the games we pick, though itís rare anyone would pick a tie. By picking a winner we are by default picking a loser. We score it a loss for ourselves if that outcome is wrong. But if the game ends in a tie we have still chosen the wrong outcome, hence we should score the game a loss for ourselves.

I went 9-7 in week 1 and will count this weekís tie as a loss again. I havenít tallied up my results yet.

This is why I believe the NFL needs to change its overtime from ten minutes back to fifteen

Only 7 teams are 2-0.

Bengals, Jags, Dolphins, Broncos, Chiefs, Bucs, & Rams.

The 4 teams left to play this week all lost last week.

Makes sense, however...

Calico is our Picks accountant, and she doesn't have a TIE column in her ledger.

And... I was told I am not allowed to have a TIE.
