Yes...it happened. Two ties in back-to-back weeks...more about it in tomorrow's recap.

The last time we had back-to-back weeks with a tie was a mere 19 years ago in Weeks 12/13 of the 1997 season. The Redskins were the tie game in the Week 13 game, against the New York Giants that time, and in a twist of fate, these two games have been the only tie games for the Redskins since 1974! In both of these instances (1997 and 2016), the Redskins had a tie in the second week of a back-to-back week with a tie. This was the first tie at a stadium outside the USA in the regular season. It is also the first season with two ties within the season since 1997...so the last two times there were two regular season ties were in back-to-back weeks! Could we set a new standard with another tie next week? Only time will tell...75 minutes of football and no one emerges victorious.

Ozzz2002 keeps his lead and increases it to two with his bonus point for picking "Da Bears" at (then) 1-6 to win over the (then) 5-1 Vikings, which was also jagged by another Aussie in ozfei, as well as yoyoandcigs. The three mustered the only bonus points of the week, but it also gave ozzz2002 his 10th of the season.

Only one favorite won on the road...and that game almost came to a tie as well...Oakland got a 41yd TD pass with 1:45 left in OT from Derek Carr, who is only the third player to throw for 500 or more yards with 4 touchdown passes and zero interceptions...and nope, Tom Brady is NOT on that list! The other two: Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh at home in 2014, and Y.A. Tittle in New York for the Giants in 1962. Carr's performance was away from Oakland.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 4-3 picking them this year, as they escaped from the Eagles in OT after trailing by 10 on two separate occasions. It will sure make for an interesting decision once Romo is healthy! He's 4-4 picking his new "home" team, as they wanted the win...then didn't, then did again, but Hopkins, who had gone 22/22 insude of 35 yards, missed a 34yd FG wide left with about two minutes to go...on 3rd down! LeoDaVinci is 3-3 picking with his team, as they did not play this week...they are almost the worst in the league...could the Browns at 0-8 beat them? With Chip Kelly at the helm, I think it is a good possibility.

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper)

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

An interesting week in football...but no ties this week. Most of the favorites won, but there were a few that didn't come to play...Minnesota, Green Bay, and Denver, this is aimed at you. Aaron Rodgers blasted his team for not "staying focused", and it showed as the Colts beat them at Lambeau this week...which no one picked...not even our red herring king, ozzz2002.

Some surprises in the NFL: who would have put the Raiders at 7-2 after nine games, and the Cowboys at 7-1 without Tony Romo? Who'd have imagined that Carolina would be in the cellar of their division after their 15-1 record last year? Minnesota started 5-0, then have fallen flat, however, this week took a little longer, as they lost it in OT to the Lions (the only game to see OT this week).

Carson Wentz started out color-blind, as he threw two INTs in the first 5:17 of game clock, giving the Giants a 14-0 lead, but after he probably got called out by his coach, he started finding green jerseys and made it a game, but still lost 28-23.

Themonarch only tipped the Thursday game, and as it wasn't even correct, he was given default. Gillyharold was late with his pick, but it, again, was incorrect, so it was moot.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 5-3 picking them this year, as they demolished the only winless team. The Browns have been 0-9 before, but will they ever win...or will they be the same as the 2008 Lions? He's 4-4 picking his new "home" team, as they did not play LeoDaVinci is 3-4 picking with his team, as they got beat at home by the Saints...even behind Kaepernick's 398 passing yards.

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper)

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

Overall, a bad week, as we fail to hit 50% as a group, but when you have four players score four or less...that doesn't help matters, especially in Sypher's case, who took a horrible two this week. PaulE and Dizart fared better and picked up a weekly win for their efforts.

This was another week of the upset, as eight favorites were defeated, with seven of those eight on the road, one of which was the 8-1 Cowboys, who have the best record through Week 10 for the first time since the 1977 season (the Patriots are 7-2). Did anyone see the Cowboys going 8-1 after nine games with Romo sidelined? All previous years, they'd be with the lowly Browns at 0-9.

Yoyoandcigs posted the Thursday game at 5:10pm FT, so his pick of Baltimore did not count. A couple of tippers had that happen last week, and a friendly reminder: all three of Thanksgiving Day's games must be in by 9am FT (7am PT, 9am CT, 10am ET, 3pm GMT, 8:30am IST, 2am Fri Sydney, 4am Friday NZ) (if I have left off any time zones of our players, my apologies).

Several blowouts happened this week...as Tennessee put on the after burners en route to a 21-0 first quarter lead, and coasted to a 47-25 win over the now 4-5 Green Bay Packers. Tampa Bay (also known as a laughingstock) torched the Bears by a score of 36-10. Baltimore kept Cleveland in it early, then took off in the second half and beat the 0-10 Browns 28-7. It is looking like the latter will be joining the 2008 Lions in an unelite club...known as the losers of the year (0-16).

This is also the week of the groups...four players are tied in ninth, with two a point back, and five more a further three back of that.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 6-3 picking them this year, as they went back and forth with the Steelers and came away with a hard fought win. He's 4-5 picking his new "home" team, as they came out strong, then let Minnesota back in it, but came away with a win of their own. LeoDaVinci is 4-4 picking with his team, as they got beat yet again...could the Browns even beat them?? His prediction was 6-10...don't think they will get to half that in the win column looking ahead at the rest of the season for them...

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper)

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

A far better week, and in fact, the best week of the year so far, surpassing 70% overall.

Sypher goes from worst to first with his stellar picks of 13/14...only missing the game at Arrowhead, which only toocool4u got...Tampa beating Kansas City in Kansas City. What did he know about that one that no one else did?

A massive SIX Spoons went out this week...and for all six, it was not their first of the season.

Both ElfTwinkle and ozzz2002 see the first 3's in the HoF/WS standings...and in both cases, it was the Spoon. No one has more than two weekly wins, and we have only six weeks to go.

Four games were picked by everyone...the Patriots beating San Francisco, the Steelers beating the Browns (no surprise in either of these...sorry Leo, but your Niners would lose to the Browns), the Jaguars losing to the Lions, and the G-Men beating the Bears.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 7-3 picking them this year, as they kept the train going yet again...on their ninth straight win, or something they had not done since 1977 or before. He's 5-5 picking his new "home" team, as they came out strong and did not let up on Aaron Rodgers and Co. LeoDaVinci is 5-4 picking with his team, as they only played the Patriots...no one can beat a cheater...not even Colin Kaepernick.

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

Mustang extends his lead by going 14/16 and earning two bonus points to the mix, one for the Green Bay pick (shared bonus with LeoDaVinci and N-Bomb), and the other for his picks (shared with Howie72 and illiniman14).

As to what happened on the gridiron, most games were predictable, but there were a couple of red herrings: Green Bay winning in Philadelphia, and Kansas City winning in Denver on a literal last second FG...as it went through with :00 in OT, so yes, we *almost* had a third tie on the season!

Also of note, themonarch posted the first three at 9:24am FT, therefore those did not count.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 7-4 picking them this year, as they kept the train going yet again...on their tenth straight win, and beating a QB that passed for 449 yards in Jerryville. He's 5-6 picking his new "home" team, as they came to play at Jerryville, but couldn't stop the train. LeoDaVinci is 6-4 picking with his team, as they got close to OT, but Suh decided he'd played enough football on the day.

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked...George95 picked only the Chargers, therefore lost his near-miss bonus.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

Who expected the Cowboys to win on a controversial call? Several of us, but Dizart sure wasn't going that way...and I wonder if he has egg on his face...

Both srini701 and illiniman14 had their thinking caps on, and pick up a weekly win in the process...and poor ozzz2002...his was broken this week.

Ozfei tipped the Thursday game, but failed to lodge the other 14, so she went default this week.

The Falcons lost on a rather new rule...an interception on a 2pt conversion, and took it all the way to the house to lose at home to the Chiefs. Why not go for one and send it to OT? We've already had two ties this year...why not try for three? LOL

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 8-4 picking them this year, as they escaped Minnesota with a win (see above) to extend their winning streak to 11, and can set a new franchise record next week. He's 6-6 picking his new "home" team, as they allowed an INT with under a minute to go in an eight point game. LeoDaVinci is 6-5 picking with his team, as they couldn't get a thing going, and Kaepernick decided he didn't want to throw the football hardly at all, and came away as the first ever NFL quarterback to have more sacks on him than yards thrown (five sacks for 25 yards, so overall, Kaepernick went for -21). Leo, what were you thinking with the snow in Chitown? Kaepernick got benched after a 1-5-4 line...yes, you are reading that correctly...he went one for five for a grand total of four yards in the air. It's no wonder they are 1-11, and they can't even keep up with a team that was 2-9 going in. Gabbert didn't fare much better, but he at least had positive yardage (27 overall, 35 passing and -8 on a single sack). I'm sure at this point the Browns could blow them out...and the Browns are 0-12!

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

Ha, but how many underdogs have won on the road this season? 51/76, or about 67%. And even though Fitzpatrick is benched indefinitely, his backup isn't that great, although all Kap is good for is running the ball...lol.

With only three weeks to go, Mustang is looking like the comp winner this year, but there are a few that could make it interesting...

Somehow, wwe84 didn't get some memos, and he was the only one to not score at least half, taking a Spoon with him. On the flipside, both PaulE and Mustang (as if he needed it) took the weekly wins.

What was going on with dg_dave and ozzz2002? They both had good luck picking against Luck, and earned the only bonus points of the week.

With Dallas's loss and New England's win, they are the only two-loss teams in football, although they have more losses alone than the Niners and Browns have wins (the latter two have one win between them, and both are riding long losing streaks (the Browns at 13 games and the Niners at 11)).

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 8-5 picking them this year, as they lost again to the only team that has beaten them. He's 7-6 picking his new "home" team, as they forced a fumble late to seal the deal...and beat the Eagles for the fifth straight time. LeoDaVinci is 6-6 picking with his team, as they let a 14 point lead slip away and couldn't get it done in OT. So the Jets weren't favored? Did that stop them?

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

A good week overall, save for a couple of games. We managed to hit almost 70% of our tips.

If you scored a single digit number, you got a Spoon...nine was the low score of the week.

Tom Brady and Co. got out of Denver with a win mad ...as is custom with either a Seattle win or New England win, the mad faces come out, although it wasn't as hard for them to come out for Seattle...they only played the Rams...or the only team to lose to San Francisco.

The Giants are keeping it real with the Cowboys...making sure they win out to ensure themselves of home field. Some people like to use the wrong gender for the former team, and this week, it bit them hard.

Illiniman14 was the only near miss bonus point winner, and in the process, took the weekly win.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 8-6 picking them this year, as they had to come from behind to pull out a win. He's 7-7 picking his new "home" team, as they couldn't get started well at home against Cam and Co. LeoDaVinci is 6-6 picking with his team, as he didn't tip them, but they got shellacked anyway. Even the worst team (Browns) didn't lose by 30! Will San Francisco go 1-15? Chip Kelly is making that more and more of a reality...

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

Paper_aero cuts Mustang's lead to one with his weekly win and Mustang's near Spoon score.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you...the Browns are bolded as they won for the first time in over a year! They will not join the 2008 Lions as the only 0-16 teams.

Dizart and gillyharold were hoping for an upset in Arlington, but gillyharold didn't misspell a team name. Yes, he fell one place, but the former fell three, and scored two more than gillyharold did.

One more week to go and favorites are posted. Illiniman, get ready for the playoffs...and Dizart, the road to the Super Bowl will go through Dallas, much to your chagrin, I am sure. The Redskins still have a chance for the playoffs as a 6 seed, but need a little help.

In other news, San Francisco can win football games...but only against the Rams. I still say the Browns would smoke them, since San Diego lost to a former 0-14 team...any takers that San Diego will have a new head coach next season?

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 9-6 picking them this year, as they demolished Detroit at home. He's 8-7 picking his new "home" team, as they came into Chicago angry about last week's loss. LeoDaVinci is 7-6 picking with his team, as they went gutsy at the end and didn't play for OT...the Niners CAN win! Oh wait...they've only beaten the Rams, which happened to be their only other win...in Week 1!

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

The NFL season has come to a close. Paper_aero takes the last two week's worth weekly wins and steals the gold from Mustang. Four points back, dg_dave takes the bronze by two over PaulE.

Ozzz2002 was our bonus point king, taking 12 throughout the season. His five Spoons were tied for the most, but unlike wwe84, he had more red herrings hit paydirt. Had there been no bonus points, Mustang would have won gold on a countback (four weekly wins to three).

Just like in the NFC North, I had to wait until the game ended to see who would take the weekly win (the winner of the game took their division).

Shadowmyst started out the season with us, but fell from the train somewhere along the way...hope he will return next year.

Six players garnered the near-miss bonus point this week, including Dizart, who can't seem to type the word "cowboy". Here's hoping he never has to write about the Old West...lol.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he is 10-6 picking them this year, as they let Philly win as they had nothing to play for. He's 8-8 picking his new "home" team, as they couldn't get anything going against the G-men. LeoDaVinci is 8-6 picking with his team, as they can only beat the Rams...and he knew it.

On the AFC side of the game, yes, unfortunately. Dallas has home field throughout the NFC playoffs.

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Now to pass the baton to illiniman14 to take us to Super Bowl LI! Take it away, illiniman14!

Until next season, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)
