Week 4 NFL Pick ‘Em

Week 3 ended up fairly even across the board, in spite of some large variation in our picks.  Everyone ended up either 5-2 or 4-3, continuing the very tight race.  This week, the picks seem to be more similar amongst our contestants with four of the seven contests garnering unanimous votes.  .

Week 4 NFL Pick ‘Em

This is quickly becoming “not fun” for me.  After yet another dismal week of picking, I find myself dead last in our Pick ‘Em contest. Making matters worse, I’m not just in last place, but I’m SIX games behind our leader, Trevor.  It’s time to change my strategy here…

#1 – Use the power of the Top 12 and stick with it.  That makes things easy this week for me with HOU over PIT, BAL over NYJ, DET over DAL, and BUF over CIN.  No more picking the Bears over the Packers and other stupidity in an attempt to pick up cheap points by going against the grain.

#2 – It’s a sprint, not a marathon.  Looking at Trevor’s picks compared to mine, I only have one chance to make up a game – DET @ DAL.  Our other four picks are idential.  Normally, I might be tempted to see if I could squeeze one out with the Jets, or buck the trend and go against the Bills, who I feel are ripe for a letdown after last week.  But we’ve got 14 weeks of football to go, and so I just have to turn off the panic switch, reel in my gut instinct, and play the odds for now. 

And without further ado…  The picks.
