There's a game tomorrow? I thought this football thing was done for the year. Hockey is getting interesting, basketball is getting into the meaningful part of the season, and pitchers and catchers report in just a couple of weeks. Who needs football? Well, ok, I'll play along for one more time in hope of collecting the lovely parting gifts.

Anecdotal prediction, since I inadvertently fell off the edge of the Pick 'Em table some weeks ago:

The game takes on a 1991 Bills-Giants vibe, with Foles playing the role of Hostetler and Blount as Anderson. The Eagles get great play from both of their lines and win the time of possession battle.

Gostkowski misses a PAT at some point in the game (which he has a habit of doing), and the Eagles end up winning by 1. The game marks a rare occasion when the Pats are done in by their special teams.

Brady gets dinged up in the 4th quarter and Hoyer has to be sent in to try to do the impossible. In the post-game analysis, the pundits pounce, claiming that the championship was traded away with Brissett and Garoppolo.

Dog gone rcade. If you had played only week 2, you would still be in second place, but by only a single point. I wonder if that's the best week ever for a pick 'em contest.

Because of that prop there's a chance the contest ends with multiple players having both won and not won. That would be a Schrodinger's tie in which the tiebreaker determines the winner but all tied players get pants.

Speaking of which, I forgot to include a tiebreaker.

The tiebreakers (in order): score this week, score this week without props, prop 9, prop 3, prop 4, prop 5, prop 1, prop 2, prop 6, prop 7, prop 8, random die roll on my Amazon Echo.
