I took some heat last week when my wife and I finished tied in our weekly competition picking NFL games (9-5, .643). This week, it's time for me to put on one of those white tank-top-style undershirts, if you know what I mean. That would be me with the 11-3 record (.786) in Week 4, and that would be
the ol' lady my better half straggling along checking in at a laughable still-respectable 7-7.
We were 7-2 in games we agreed upon, but I had a 4-1 edge in games where we picked different winners (to her credit, she shrewdly foresaw the Patriots' upset at Cincinnati,
while completely whiffing on the Raiders, Chargers, Vikings and, get this, the freaking Titans!).
In any event, I know better than to gloat. She'll probably
get discouraged and quit pick every game right this week. We'll have those picks a bit later. The picks as they ran last week are below.
