Ladies and gentlemen, here is your predictions recap for the second-to-last week of the preseason. The Packers-Colts game on Friday yielded the highest-scoring Cheesestradamus week so far, and extend your congratulations to the foursome of Danwood, PackerLogician, Packers-Braves fan, and Wiedmann for sharing the lead in Week -2 with 12 points each. Cheddarhead, shakes_d33, and newcomer Stanley Berg tied for the 5th spot with 11 points.
Robert st was able to hold onto his lead with a 6-point week, but there are a few users charging up behind him, led by AdamA and HankO. Thursday's game against the Chiefs will determine who earns their bragging rights as the 2011 Preseason Cheesestradamus Champion!
More standings and analysis to come after the jump.
As I mentioned, scoring was up this week. This was aided by Aaron Rodgers leading all quarterbacks in completion percentage, and Jermichael Finley scoring the Packers' first touchdown - both of which were popular selections. We also had a few hit bonus predictions. AdamA correctly guessed that the Packers would score off each forced turnover, gavitron9 guessed that the Packers would have more field goals than touchdowns, and a new player, ilpackfan34, correctly guessed that Donald Driver would catch exactly three passes. We also had a few invalid entries - we're not the Bengals, so if your bonus prediction just says that the Packers will win, that won't cut it. Also, one player guessed that the Packers would have the first two scores of the game -- that wasn't quite good enough, as it has happened in about 40% of games over the last two years.
