NFL Picks 12/15 & 12/16
« on: December 10, 2013, 12:01:33 PM »
Round two:

Quote
Just winners. No spreads or anything.

The tie breaker is the score for each team playing Monday night.

Don't worry, this has nothing to do with gambling. It is a legal event and I have no clue about the NFL.

If I help the cause I am choosing for, I'll make a modest donation to oc.net in your name if you were the one with the closet picks.

Thanks a lot!

Again, just the winners except for Monday Night. Then your best guess for the score of each team
.

If you missed it last week's thread is here:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,55274.0.html

See ZealousZeal's post here for what became the standard method present your picks:

Colts v. Bengals: Colts- 2
Browns v. Patriots: Patriots- 5
Raiders v. Jets: Raiders- 3
Chiefs v. Redskins: Chiefs- 5
Vikings v. Ravens: Ravens- 4
Falcons v. Packers: Packers- 4
Bills v. Buccaneers: Bills-2
Dolphins v. Steelers: Steelers- 3
Lions v. Eagles: Lions- 1
Titans v. Broncos: Broncos- 5
Rams v. Cardinals: Cardinals- 3
Seahawks v. 49ers: Seahawks- 3
Giants v. Chargers: Giants- 3
Panthers v. Saints: Saints- 4

Cowboys v. Bears: Bears (Score: 17-10) -3

You want the score for Monday night only, right?

Okay, so on a scale of 1-5 where 1 is very uncertain and 5 is very certain, that's how I'd weight them. "Any given week in the NFL..."

Thanks to everyone again. I look forward to your deliberations this week!

Last week I went to ESPN, checked out the exact records and all that...  and it didn't really turn out as I would have hoped. I'm gonna try to go more with my gut this time. I follow closely enough that I should have a good enough feeling anyway. We'll see.

Redskins @ Falcons: Falcons - 2
49ers @ Buccaneers: 49ers - 5
Seahawks @ Giants: Seahawks - 4
Eagles @ Vikings: Eagles - 1
Patriots @ Dolphins: Patriots - 3
Bills @ Jaguars: Bills - 1
Texans @ Colts: Colts - 2
Bears @ Browns: Bears - 1
Chiefs @ Raiders: Chiefs - 5
Jets @ Panthers: Jets - 1
Packers @ Cowboys: Cowboys - 1
Cardinals @ Titans: Cardinals - 1
Saints @ Rams: Saints - 5
Bengals @ Steelers: Bengals - 2

Ravens @ Lions: Lions - 2 (17-12)

Incidentally, this is a week rife for upsets, with nearly all the superior teams playing on the road.

I tried to account for that. But the results are probably going to look worse than they really are this time.

Huh, so San Diego beat Denver. Glad that wasn't one of the games we were picking.
