Consider this. 17 weeks x 3 plus 3 more games for thanksgiving. Total 54 games. Winner(s) got 32 right.

32/54x100= 59% takes it. Hail to the Vegas Oddsmakers. They can set a line.

Nice prayer. Unfortunately, you were drowned out by the following:

Dear G*d,

Since there's no way in h3ll that my team is going to win it all this year, please please pretty please make the game come down our last possession where we desperately need to score, like you do with me week after week, year after year, such that someone other than me, namely Kyle, throws a game-ending INT to break the hearts of every Cowboy fan, far and wide.

Tony R

RE:"The NFC East is a bit of a joke."

You are too kind. G

Philly is maybe a little above average. Their best shot? A snowstorm and a Seattle game plan.

I found myself pulling for Orton. He did as well as Romo though.

It looked similar to the throw Romo had intercepted by GB.

Even worse, factor in our entire group's record. For sure we were way under 50%. Next year we should have a new member called Flip Coin where our official scorer simply flips a coin for this "person" each week. I bet "he" beats most of us.

Miami didn't deserve the playoffs. They stunk the last 2 games.

San Diego got the gift. KC sat a bunch of pro bowlers including their starting QB and yet SD still had to get lucky in OT.
