Week 12 is now over! Not a bad week for all of us this week:

Standings After Week 12

T-1. dishnet34 120-55 (Wk. 12: 12-2)
T-1. Rakumen 120-55 (Wk. 12: 11-3)
3. Zumikaku 112-63 (Wk. 12: 9-5)
4. philliesfan134 109-66 (Wk. 12: 9-5)
5. PP27 107-68 (Wk. 12: 8-6)
6. GoTwins24 105-70 (Wk. 12: 9-5)
7. detroittigers15 104-71 (Wk. 12: 9-5)
8. LetsGoMets77 102-73 (Wk. 12: 9-5)

10. AgentP 93-82 (Wk. 12: 7-7)
11. Kungfupandacam 60-115 (Wk. 12: 4-10)


Two contestants, myself and Rakumen, were the only ones to have a double-digit win week, with five others having nine-win weeks. Also, proving that a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while, KFPC was the only one to pick the Jets' upset win over the Raiders.

Fraud of the Week

The Raiders. We thought you were good, but then you go and lose to the Jets. The *(censored)*, guys?

Dishonorable mentions: Falcons, Packers

Good luck next week! My picks will be coming super-soon, and don't forget to PM or DM your picks!

Congrats to Rakumen, phillies, and myself for their 10-win weeks, the only three on the week! Rakumen and myself are starting to pull away from the pack, as Zumi and phillies are technically still in it, at nine and 11 games back respectively.

Fraud of the Week

The Panthers. Y'all are such frauds, you lost to Washington, and because of that, you fired your coach. Way to *(censored)* go. The NFC South is such a stupid division, but not as much as the NFC East.

Dishonorable mentions: Eagles, Colts

Fraud of the Week

Hello, Texans. Welcome to the club of losing to the Denver Broncos of all teams. Sure, Drew Lock might be the Broncos' savior at QB, but you're supposed to be better! Be better! It doesn't matter that you're in the AFC South!!

Dishonorable mention: Colts

Fraud of the Week

Ah, the 49ers. Nothing like a nice, terrible loss to the Falcons to snap y'all back to reality. The NFC South was trash outside of New Orleans, and you lost to the worst one! Frauds!

Dishonorable mentions: Rams, Raiders

Good luck in Week 16! A reminder: THREE Saturday games!

We are now down to the final week of the season. Let's see what scenarios we have for who can win the title!

Standings After Week 16

T-1. dishnet34 162-77 (Wk. 16: 11-5)
T-1. Rakumen 162-77 (Wk. 16: 10-6)
3. Zumikaku 151-88 (Wk. 16: 9-7)
4. philliesfan134 148-91 (Wk. 16: 10-6)
5. PP27 145-94 (Wk. 16: 9-7)
6. GoTwins24 144-95 (Wk. 16: 9-7)
7. detroittigers15 138-101 (Wk. 16: 9-7)
8. LetsGoMets77 129-110 (Wk. 16: 1-15)*
9. AgentP 126-113 (Wk. 16: 6-10)
10. Kungfupandacam 85-154 (Wk. 16: 6-10)


LGM has requested to be pulled out of the contest, and his request will be accepted. He will not be on the standings list for the remainder of the season.

I had the best week record-wise at 11-5, but phillies and Rakumen also had 10-win weeks.

SPECIAL NOTE

For the last week of the season, as our yearly tiebreaker, we ask that you pick the score of the Sunday Night game, this year between the 49ers and Seahawks. Here's how this will work:

Quote:
Tie breaker will be the prediction of the prime time game of the week, and the number of points by which a person misses each score will be counted.

For example if a person predicted
Packers 27, Bears 24 and the actual score was
Packers 17, Bears 27 - the person would be off by 10 with the Packers and off by 3 with the Bears for a total error of 13. Lowest error total wins the tie breaker.


So, when you're making picks this week, put the final score of the 49ers-Seahawks game in your selections.

Scenarios

It's looking to be a two-horse race at the moment between myself and Rakumen for the title. Zumi could make a heluva run, but he'd have to get a lot of things right that either me or Rakumen get wrong (AKA the KFPC strategy). Phillies is the only other user with a chance, but it's a VERY slim chance.

Fraud of the Week

The Seahawks. Had a chance to make it tougher for the 49ers in the NFC West, but then you go out and lose to the Cardinals! YOU FRAUDS!

Dishonorable mentions: Cowboys, Steelers, Chargers

Good luck in Week 17! Let's finish the season strong!

I edited in the score for my 49ers-Seahawks pick, since I forgot to do so on my initial post.

This year's title came down to the final game, and the almighty tiebreaker. Who pulled out the victory? Here's the final standings!

Final Standings

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
DNF. LetsGoMets77 129-110
DNF. ZeroGibson13 110-113


For the first time, I win the NFL Picks contest by just two points in point differential between me and Rakumen! GGs to Rakumen, he put up a hell of a fight all year.

phillies managed to sneak into third place to take the bronze just in front of Zumi with a big 12-4 week. PP27 also went 12-4 for the last week of the season.

The Bills. You lost. To the Jets. Sure, you really had nothing to play for, but it's the JETS. COME ON.

Dishonorable mentions: Patriots, Browns, Colts

Thank you all for participating in this year's contest! Let me know what you thought of the way we picked games this year; I'm always looking for feedback on how to improve this contest. Let's do it again next year!

GG to philliesfan for coming up big this week and swiping my spot on the podium. One of these years I will get lucky enough to win. And then you’ll all have to pretend that I know anything about football!
