Everyone picked correctly again this week.

Very Happy

Another one where I squeaked by. This is the toughest week by far to pick a game, considering that many of the teams I would pick to win this week are not eligible.

Week 9: Broncos over Bengals

I designed the rules so that it gets difficult after about Week 8 or so.

I also set it up so that there was an incentive to take a chance on some of the closer games early in the season. In the sudden-death survival games the only thing you worry about is getting through the current week, and I wanted to move beyond that.

Standings after Week 9 are up.

And then there were three...

Vikingsrule was eliminated and I took my 2nd strike.

Vike Daddy and disaacs both picked correctly.
