Looking at next week, we have a Bay-Area rivalry with the 49ers and Raiders, a Steelers Ravens Rivalry game and a SUPER BOWL REMATCH between the Packers and the Patriots
Some of the games this past week were east, next week, not so much with some evenly matched teams

11-2 with the Pats to go! Stupidly picked the Jags and Lions, but I'll take it considering the pathetic picking performance I've had this season. Maybe we're figuring out these teams or maybe it was just an easy week. Congrats to those who are undefeated this week.

My current understanding, Mr Manic Guy, is that each week is unique... based on each team's basic strengths and weaknesses, and that is based on injuries, illnesses, desires and basic skills per position. Then that team goes up against the other team's injuries, illnesses, desires and basic skills which could be totally different - if not closely similar?!

It's difficult knowing what the absolutes will be each week when they go mano a mano on the field. That's why these pickems are more of a crapshoot than actual science - or even research!

Lately what most of us may be doing is picking teams by their histories (who they've been) and what did they do last week (who they may currently be)! That's about it sometimes!

Phew!!!! Bills had me a little worried at halftime! The inevitable pick six occurred to seal it late.

There was one other player in my money pool who had a perfect week (110 players total) and I ousted him on the tie breaker. He picked total combined score of 48 and I had 42 (closest to actual takes the tie breaker). I'll enjoy this win for a few days and we'll do it all over again next week.

Season: 82-37

This week, 10-3! Could have been 11-2, if I had not changed my NO pick at the last minute! Haha!
