’21 NFL Pick’em Week 9

After a few weeks atop the NFL Pick’em standings, 7 Rings had a poor showing regarding picks in week nine that cost them their run at the top. Before people thought there was a massive shift at the top, there really wasn’t. Parlour Monkeys also have 88 points, the same as 7 Rings, but the computer placed them in first even though both teams are tied. 

The ninth week of the 2021 NFL season was a wild one. This past week offered a little bit of everything for the casual and hardcore fan, whether it was ongoing off-field drama or on-field upsets.
