The games aren't set yet, so the tipping threads won't be accurate until late Sunday night at the earliest.

Welcome wwe84, chogobad, szabs and Plugger, who is making a tipping competition debut, to the competition.

The number of the week was 24, as 3 of the winning teams tallied that number for their victories, only Houston, who held off Cincinnati by a score of 19-13, won with a differnt number. Without Ponder at quarterback the Vikings became more one dimensional and the Packers smothered them 24-10. Ray Lewis enjoyed every minute of his last game at Ravens stadium as his team stimied rookie sensation Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts 24-9, and the Seahawks showed their grit and Beast Mode once again as they beat a hobbled RGIII and the Redskins in a chippy game that was much closer than the final of 24-14 would suggest.

16 of us tipped at least 3 of the 4 games this weekend, but the kudos go to gtho, Howie, paper_aero and srini who tipped all 4 games and start the compeition off tied for the lead.

I knew there was something I forgot to do.

You had been accidentaly deleted during the reordering of people following the last game and I forgot to change the advance picks on your line.

Thanks

It was all about home cooking once again. Some like myself find this home dominance a little boring, but in the end what matters is the best team wins. The mythology of Ray Lewis grows as the mythology of Peyton Manning takes a hit with the shocking upset of the #1 seeded Denver Broncos by the tenacious Baltimore Ravens. The San Francisco quarterback controversy was quelled as their new shining star led the team, mostly with his legs, to a victory over the always respected Green Bay Packers. The freezing of the kicker with a last second time out was a poorly chosen tactic by Seattle head coach Pete Carroll as the Falcons kicker at first missed a late field goal, but was able to rekick it due to a time out just before the ball was snapped, and he made the second kick turning a loss into a win for Atlanta. The Texans put up a better fight then in the regular season in their second trip to Foxboro, but the Patriots played a better game, even after Houston scored 10 late first half points.

Dg_dave, Plugger & Sypher are the only tippers with both Conference Champions remaining. Plugger was also the only one to pick all 4 games and the only one to pick the Baltimore upset of Denver. Bx, Howie and ozzz were the only ones disappointed by the New England victory over the Texans.

Paper_aero pulls into the lead by himself with 27 points, just ahead of srini. The big movers were the perfect Plugger, moving from 20th to 5th, regular season champion dg_dave going from 15th to 5th and defending champion Sypher moving from 7th to 4th.
