A Note of Thanks.
Thanks to you all for making this another incredible year on DBB and I look forward to all of you following us as we head rogue (again) in 2012. We're working daily to build something you will all love.
I am only including those who currently have a winning record. Anyone with a losing or .500 record needs a miracle to win the contest. If you have a losing record, keep making picks and I'll continue tracking them.
I Bleed Navy + Orange 9-2
MikeV in Or 6-1
ben in norcal 7-3
Note: As always just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if there's an error in your current status. I'll correct it in short order if you're right.
The Thanksgiving Bonus
This will be your best opportunity all season to get some bonuses and erase some negative weeks. The task is simple. Pick all three games against the spread. If you get two out of three correct, you'll be awarded one bonus week. If you get all three correct you'll be awarded two bonus weeks. You can go from having 2 losses to undefeated in one day.
The lines. Home team in CAPS.
Houston -3 DETROIT
My pick: I watched every snap of Detroit versus the Packers and Matt Stafford is playing football at a terrible level right now. Does Houston suffer the sniffles on the short week? Nope. Texans.
DALLAS -3 Washington
My pick: I don't trust Dallas to beat anyone at any time anymore. I'll take the Redskins.
New England -7 NEW YORK JETS
My pick: Everyone in the Jets organization has been ripped publicly for the last two weeks and rightly so. They are a dysfunctional, unlikable lot who've turned on each other in an almost glorious fashion. But one thing Rex Ryan has done well in New York is play Tom Brady and the Patriots. I think that continues. I'm taking Jets and the points.
If you're going to pick all three games, those picks must be in by kickoff of the opener. You may pick the latter games only. Those picks must be in by kickoff of the second game.
