For a first-place tiebreaker, pick the total number of points scored in the Colts/Titans game on Sunday night. If two players pick the same total and end up in a tie, the one who picked it first wins.

Well, I figure if I'm gonna bring up the rear here, I may as well see it through to the embarrassing end.

Lock all of them, please, & obviously, I think by now. No clue what the Tiebreaker stuff is, but I've a strong sense it has absolutely nothing to do with me.

Giants at home by 3 just to kick the girl's in the ass.

Saints by 13...they seem to, literally, continually march home.

Pats by 11...Hope I'm off by 12 the other way.

Green Bay by 8...Don't think I've won a single game I've picked them in.

Not touching the Texans game. Not putting any juju on this one.

Bucs by 6

Fish by 5

KC by 12

Steelers by 4

Bears by 2

Broncos by 5

Hawks by 23

Tried to get my picks in last night, but something went wrong with my fat fingers, hit the wrong key, and lost everything. Had no chance to do them this morning since I had to start a beef stew in the slow cooker, get to church, and after the service help strip the Christmas greens. I now have a truckload to take to the landfill tomorrow. Since there's no chance of materially improving my position, I will take this as my bye week, rest up, let the nagging injuries heal, and get ready for the playoffs.
