    All right, got some work to do here, but bound to get a score prediction right sooner or later

    And here we go, the Leaderboard ...

    Mondio - 254
    Poppa San - 70
    El Guapo - 52
    GbGary - 52
    Me - 51
    Pkrjones - 44
    AmishMafia - 34
    Do7 - 14
    Shoop - 10
    C-LEE - 10


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And rules for the newcomers to see

    1 point for 1 game picked correctly

    2 for at least 2 right

    3 for at least 3 right

    4 for at least 4

    Get at least half the week's picks right 10 points

    Get 75℅ or more right 20 points

    Miss only one pick 40 points

    Get them all right and it's 50 points

    And then guessing the correct score of games WITH THE CORRECT WINNERS


    Get the final score right on one or more of your predictions and that's 100 points for each one you get right.

    If you get very very lucky to get all the scores right, that's a 3000 point jackpot.

    And you can make your pick for any game at any time up until Kickoff. Once it's kicked off and you haven't picked though, you lose your prediction on that game.

    Ok, I thought about trying the new make the Thursday pick now, but wait until Sunday to make the rest. I can't do that. Too much excitement feeling I'm going to get a 50 or 100 this week. Here they come

    Thursday

    Vikings 30 Redskins 17 - holding my nose, but I just can't pick the Deadskins

    Sunday Early

    Bears 24 Chargers 17 - I'd take Rivers over Trubisky if his OL wasn't a raddy mess

    Seahawks 27 Falcons 24 - Only a matter of time before Arthur Blanc pulls the trigger on Quinn, and ATL has screwed me over one time too many now

    Bills 20 Eagles 10 - Wentz was bad in D-Town, and I feel he's going to be bad here against that defense

    Lions 31 Giants 17 - Neither team been great but Giants don't have Minny's weapons

    Titans 23 Bucs 20 - Jameis will have a ton of pressure in his face

    Saints 45 Cardinals 21 - Saints offense about to rip them a new one

    Jaguars 21 Jets 7 - Minshew working quietly but thus far he's proven to be a better commodity than Darnold

    Colts 27 Broncos 7 - I owe an apology to John Harbaugh for criticizing moving on from Flacco

    Rams 34 Bengals 31 (London) - I would want to give the Bungles a shot here in a change of scenery, but nope can't do it

    Sunday Late

    Panthers 20 49ers 17 - I believe the 49ers have the better team, but the better team can still lose sometimes, and I gotta call at least one upset here

    Patriots 34 Browns 21 - The cupcake schedule continues in New England

    Texans 26 Raiders 23 - A close but slightly more favorable matchup for Houston

    Sunday Night

    Us 38 Chiefs 24 - The Baaaaadddd Man is on Fire!!!!!!


    Monday Night

    Steelers 13 Dolphins 7 - Ratings set to tank for this toilet bowl

    It would be Keenums revenge too rubbing it into Vikes fans.

    Sigh ... That would be entertaining but the Redskins just never give us nice things

    Sometimes in pick'em leagues, you just have to pick the wins and losses that make you feel good. Having AP run all over the Vikings would be cathartic for me.

    I want to pick the Redskins, if it was there, I might. But I don't see them beating MN in MN so

    Vikings 31-23

    I'll be back Sunday morning for the rest of my wrong picks

    Maybe the Chargers prove me wrong today, but not banking on it. Rivers looks more washed up than Carson Palmer did in his last days.

    I think Arizona is in big trouble today. Drew Brees is back out there.

    Expected the Bears to not choke against a team that sucks east of the Rockies.
