Note to self: Never make fun of one of Mike D's picks... I just had to make fun of Mike D picking the Indianapolis Colts to win... and I was within a few percentage points of catching him too. Last week, everyone had a bad day when we made our picks. Team TST is still solidly in second place, with Mike D in first for what seems like the jillionth week straight. Ryan has a firm hold on third place, and the rest of the TST author ramble are in a close battle for fourth place. It looks like the Top 4 winners that move onto the play off round will be Mike D, Ryan "the most evil" Van Bibber, Team TST and a team to be named after Sunday's games. The playoff round will consist of even greater challenges, and since I'm setting the rules... Bwah-Ha-Ha!

The next round will involve not only the point spread, but a fantasy football team as well. Each of the finalists will get to pick a fantasy football team out of all the players in the playoffs, from any team. Each contestant will get 3 QBs, 5 RBs, 7 WRs, 3 TEs, 3 Kickers and 3 defenses. As a team is eliminated from the playoffs, players are lost and are not replaced. The draft order will be determined by the highest win percentage in the regular season Weekly NFL picks... We'll hold a LIVE draft in an upcoming post. Fun, eh?

So on with the final regular season segment of the NFL Weekly picks against the point spread...

***A simple cover by the winning team is a win, no ties here based on spread***
