Last week's results omitted the N.Y. Giants win by 7 over Miami on Monday night. Thanks to Jagsnumberone for catching that. When it was corrected, Goyoucolts was in a tie with Tommytrump for first place.

This week brings the first new leader in 10 weeks, as Grum@work scores a week-best 27 and takes a three-point lead over Tommytrump and Ic23b. Three more are within seven points of first.

There were two nine-point plays this week: Yerfatma on Seattle by 17 and Tron7 on New England by 17.

Nobody broke a lock. More exact margins hit: Pittsburgh by 7 (Cixelsyd, Tommytrump, NoMich, Ufez Jones, Rumple), Green Bay by 10 (Yerfatma, Owlhouse, Bender), Seattle by 17 (Jagsnumberone, Bender), New York Jets by 3 (Grum@work, Billsaysthis), Cincinnati by 10 (Jagsnumberone), Kansas City by 20 (Goyoucolts), Carolina by 3 (Grum@work) and Houston by 6 (Ufez Jones)

My baking is mostly done, supper will be something simple, and I will be passing the Chalice at the late Eucharist tonight. The family goes to CT tomorrow for Christmas at my wife's stepmother's place, where we celebrate the annual setting off of the smoke alarm as the several sisters try once again to make Yorkshire pudding. Tradition is a wonderful thing. Getting all the football picks correct is also wonderful. How 'bout it, Santa?

Holden: you didn't list a number for San Diego. I'm guessing the pick still counts, but the most you can score is 1 point (for getting the winner correct).

posted by grum@work at 10:38 PM on December 24

Yep. That's how it works.

posted by rcade at 11:01 PM on December 24

I quit entering one because I realized the game had started, but didn't delete the beginning. Outcome makes this moot in any event.
