Well, that escalated quickly... 9 weeks in, and the good guys are 6-3 heading into the bye. Meanwhile in our little contest, uofmike, aaronetc, and AdamA were en fuego with 13 out of 14 picks made correctly (that is a season-best percentage of 0.928, just besting gunslinger and Matt Keegan's previous high of 0.923)! There were plenty of other peeps in double digits (I forgot what that having that many picks correct feels like... ), so have a look at the standings and give it another crack this week:

If you would like to re-join the competition, you are welcome to.
1) Get those picks in by Thursday, November 8th at 8:20 PM ET / 7:20 PM Central.
2) Out with the old, in with the new; you guys know what to do by now.
3) We've had complaints of sticky substances being found under desks, and Super Soakers also being found in the vicinity. If the guilty party (or parties) could cease this behavior, it would be much appreciated. Thanks! - Management
mike's Week 10 picks, sponsored by osc's Sammich of the Month Club:
Indianapolis at Jacksonville: Indy is turning out to be a decent team. JAX? Not so much. COLTS.
San Diego at Tampa Bay: Taking the Bucs because they're at home. BUCCANEERS.
Tennessee at Miami: How does Tennessee have 3 wins? DOLPHINS.
Buffalo at New England: No explanation required here. PATRIOTS.
Oakland at Baltimore: Nice bounce-back win in CLE last week for Baltimore. RAVENS.
Denver at Carolina: Cam, you may want to take notes from that guy wearing #18... . BRONCOS.
N.Y. Giants at Cincinnati: Well, last year was nice... right, Bengal fans? GIANTS.
Detroit at Minnesota: For the Vikes' sake, they better not lose this one; they play 4 out of 5 games on the road following their bye next week. Too bad they'll still lose. LIONS.
Atlanta at New Orleans: I'm just going to roll with the Falcons until they lose. FALCONS.
N.Y. Jets at Seattle: The Jets suck. SEAHAWKS.
Dallas at Philadelphia: The 'Boys keep knocking on the door, and I say they break it down for a W this week. COWBOYS.
St. Louis at San Francisco: The Rams were looking decent before getting obliterated by GB and NE. With that said, I think they keep this one within 10 points. 49ERS.
Houston at Chicago: Oh, hey... Chicago is playing a team that actually owns a record over .500! Aaaaaand it'll be another loss to a team with a record over .500. TEXANS.
Kansas City at Pittsburgh: This isn't even fair. Seriously, who set this up? STEELERS.
