Our Week 11 “expert” NFL picks and predictions have been posted and are available for your viewing pleasure on our “Beat the House” contest page. The Week 10 “Beat the House” recap is below.
After a week of a full roster of 16 games, the schedule goes back to 14 games as the last four teams (Houston, Indy, New Orleans, Pittsburgh) finally get their bye week. Has that ever happened before? A gap in the bye weeks? In any case, week 11 will be the last time there is not a full 16 games being played.
As for week 10, the hot streak of the House ended as the members fared one game better, beating “the House” for the first time in four weeks. It was a bad week for picks overall, but we did have a few members make some decent pick sets with 10 and 11 out of 14 games guessed correctly. Only two members picked 11 right, but only one can win the prize pack of movies and AXE Hair products… that member is mcole, with a tie-breaking 96 wins for the season. That number places mcole in fourth overall place in the competition.
Right now, on the TMR Leaderboard, there is a three-way tie for first at 99 correct picks each. This should get interesting as the season progresses.
The final tallies for week 9 and the season as a whole are as follows:
The overall tally in 2011 now is Members 6, House 2, Madden NFL Sim 2.
Votes are already pouring in for week 11 so make sure you enter yours before the deadline… kickoff of the 1:00pm EST games on Sunday.
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!
