Picks due by 12:30 p.m. EST Sunday.
They counted on the Jets.
Think about that for a few seconds.
They relied on Gang Green to keep them alive for another week.
What does Gang Green sound like?
As it turns out, fatally so.
Survived by Moonchild, Jumping Jack Flash, Aquarius, Cosmic Traveler, and Captain Trips.
I waited an extra year for that line.
So we have two people in limbo. One gets to come back in semi-triumph, and one -- moves on. Sure, let's call it that. And how do we figure out which is which?
Here's how it works. I'm going to assign ARNutz and Starshine three games each. One will be an NFC game, one AFC, and the third will be between the conferences. There will be no duplicate assignments. They must pick the loser in all three games and predict the margin of defeat. Exact score predictions aren't necessary -- just say how many points you think each chosen one will fall by.
Whoever picks the most losing teams wins. If there's a tie in picks, we go to total margin of points predicted vs. the actual difference. And if that's a try, I scream collusion and try it again next week.
Arizona at Minnesota
NY Jets at Detroit
San Diego at Houston
Dallas at Green Bay
Indianapolis at Philadelphia
Miami at Baltimore
I'd wish them luck, but they technically already ran out of it.
Again: it is not kind.
