One week after stunning the pick’em pool with a perfect week, we sunk back to reality with a 9-5 week.
Although we ran our correct picks streak to 18 straight games, it really didn’t matter in the end.
Once Upon a Time in NE Picks
Thursday Night Football: San Francisco @ Arizona (+1)
The 49ers will lose someday. Just wasn’t going to be Thursday Night.
Houston @ Jacksonville (+1)
It seems when a Houston sports team leaves town, they win.
Washington @ Buffalo (+1)
Buffalo needed to rebound at home. Mission accomplished.
Minnesota @ Kansas City (-1)
Who else thought that the Chiefs were going to be done? So much for that.
New York Jets @ Miami (+1)
Someone had to win this game…granted a tie would have been impressive.
Chicago @ Philadelphia (+1)
The Eagles players on my fantasy team went off. Thankfully we picked them to win.
Indianapolis @ Pittsburgh (-1)
I wonder what would have happened if quarterback Jacoby Brissett didn’t get injured.
Tennessee @ Carolina (-1)
So much for waiting for that other shoe to drop in Carolina…
Detroit @ Oakland (+1)
I can’t recall why I picked Oakland… must have been a statistic that stood out to me.
Tampa Bay @ Seattle (+1)
The difference may have been six points when, in reality, it was Russell Wilson.
Cleveland @ Denver (+1)
Great memes came from this game, nothing else.
Green Bay @ Los Angeles Chargers (-1)
If Aaron Rodgers were so good…he wouldn’t lose to the Chargers…Tom Brady doesn’t.
Sunday Night Football: New England @ Baltimore (-1)
I don’t know what’s worse, that my mind wanted to pick Baltimore or the fact I couldn’t comprehend how bad the Patriots looked.
Monday Night Football: Dallas @ New York Giants (+1)
The Giants had no chance…after halftime.
Standings & Group Picks
There are only a handful of weeks left in the NFL season and our Pick’em pool. It is safe to say that we will not do a massive climb out of the hole we find ourselves in.
Stay tuned for next week’s picks!
