Our Week 13 “expert” NFL picks and predictions have been posted and are available for your viewing pleasure on our “Beat the House” contest page. Remember, there is a game on Thursday this week. Make sure you get your picks in prior to the kickoff of the Thursday game if you want credit for that game. Voting will stay open until Sunday, but you won’t get credit for the Thursday games if you enter after 1:00pm EST.
The House beat the collective membership in Thanksgiving week (week 12) by a whole two games. The House was able to pick 14 out of the 16 games correctly, while the members only notched 12. It did not look good for the House as it got the very first pick of the week wrong (Detroit over Green Bay), and then had an almost as Dallas had to throw everything they had at the Dolphins to beat them by one point in the second game. From there it was clear sailing, though.
We had a little numbers glitch so the TMR leaderboard is not correct, or available, at this time. It will be fixed within the next few days and all will be back on track with week 13. Vote away! We are still accepting week 13 picks while the leaderboard gets fixed. We do know that the House won so no prizes are awarded for week 12. The overall tally in 2011 now is Members 6, House 4, Madden NFL Sim 2.
Wow, it is getting close!
Votes are already pouring in for week 13 so make sure you enter yours before the final deadline… kickoff of the 1:00pm EST games on Sunday, but any entries received after the Thursday game starts will not get credit for that game.
Stay tuned for when we announce the results for NFL player of the week and find out of any member was able to correctly guess them and win the Jagermeister Cooler!
