NFL Week 16 Expert Picks and Predictions (Christmas Eve Games) and Week 15 Recap

Our Week 16 “expert” NFL picks and predictions have been posted and are available for your viewing pleasure on our “Beat the House” contest page. Remember, there are games on Thursday and Saturday this week. Make sure you get your picks in prior to the kickoff of the Thursday game if you want credit for all 16 picks this week. Voting will stay open until Saturday, Christmas Eve, until the first kickoff, but you won’t get credit for the Thursday game if you enter after that kickoff.

After starting the season with a commanding 4-0 lead, the members have fallen into a 6.5 to 6.5 win tie with The House. The Madden NFL 12 simulation was responsible for the other 2 wins this year. The House now only trails the collective membership by 7.5 wins on the season… a lead that was approaching 20 at one point during the season. Cletus has been on fire in the second half of this 2011 season!

Since the House was not beaten, and since that is the name of the game, no prizes are awarded for week 15. That’s right, no more chances to get your prize before the holidays so you can regift it. Sorry. The prize pack for week 16, a bunch of movies and AXE Hair products, is up for grabs though.

The final tallies for week 15 and the updated season stats are:

* The House Madden Sim Members
Week 15: 9-7 7-9 7-9
2011 Overall: 137-87 129-95 142.5-79.5

The overall tally in 2011 now is Members 6.5, House 6.5, Madden NFL Sim 2.

Time is running out on the 2011 season! The House may be the hot hand lately, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get lucky and snag one of the last remaining prize packs. Votes are already pouring in for week 16 so make sure you enter yours before the final deadline… kickoff of the 1:00pm EST games on Saturday, but any entries received after the Thursday and game starts will not get credit for that game.

Good Luck! Only two more chances to win in the 2011 regular season!
