NFL Pick 'Em Week 15: I Miss the Big Sombrero Edition: Thursday night takes Tampa Bay to St. Louis in a rematch of the 1979 NFC Championship Game, which the Rams won 9-0 on the road in the Big Sombrero. On Saturday night, the N.Y. Jets visit Dallas. The Duke almost in his grasp, Tommytrump leads our contest by two points with just three weeks to go. Make your picks, lock your lock and remember the great John McKay.

I love that so late in the season, a couple of catastrophic weeks by the leaders combined with great weeks by me could see me win this thing. I highly doubt that this will occur, but I'm only 11 points behind the leaders. Man, I had some terrible weeks. Man.

Oops yes, please LOCK Seattle for me.
