By any standard I believe I might have a perfect pick'em going. Perfectly mediocre, that is. It's neither a great success nor a great disaster. The ho-hum factor is high. On with the picks.

New England by 6 LOCK

Philadelphia by 7 LOCK

Passing: Brady, NEP

Rushing: Lewis, NEP

Receiving: Amendola, NEP

Sack: VanNoy, NEP

Scoring: Philadelphia

By the way, You have given me credit for picking Marquis Flowers for getting a sack. This is incorrect; I picked Trey Flowers. This makes absolutely no difference, since each got a sack. It's just that my conscience could not allow me to take anything unearned.

truthhurts, if you edit your post after you post it and then re-post (without changing anything), it will put the line breaks in like you entered it.
