Shoutout to Clark who’s pure hatred and distrust of the Jaguars paid off in a huge win for his pick’em team as he was the only one who called the Cowboys upsetting the Jags. Well done sir. Also props to Clark, Mark and Ghoji who posted the best records last week, going 12-3 on their picks. Mark and Clark also had the Dolphins beating the Bears. Man, Clark clearly knows his shit.

Lesser shoutouts to myself, Paddi, Matias and Heath who all went 8-7 this last week. Gotta get back on the grind!

Onto Week 7!

Unanimous picks: Chargers over Titans, Patriots over Bears, Rams over 49ers, Chiefs over Bengals, Falcons over Giants

Ledge picks: Bills over Colts (Mark), Jets over Vikings (Mark)

I find myself every week wanting to pick the Bills but not having the moxy to do it and this is such a week. That being said, Luck has looked good and T.Y. Hilton is back. Meanwhile, Derek Anderson is playing quarterback again. I would be preeeeetty upset if the Colts somehow found a way to lose this game. Also Jets over Vikings? Ballsy.

It’s interesting to see how much people believe in Tampa Bay this week. Only myself and Clark have the Browns winning. I understand the Bucs are at home and have a lot of offensive talent but that defense is the worst in the league by fifteen football fields and I don’t think the Browns’ defense is as bad as what we saw against the Chargers. I have a feeling Baker Mayfield is going to have a breakout game while Jameis Winston is primed for a big time turnover. We shall see.

Also, I’m sure Matt will add his picks in at some point. He can’t miss a week and surrender his number one ranking.
