Apparently, we don't have a whole lot of faith in Scott Tolzien. Well, it's either that or the Packers' defense...yeah, against the Giants, it's probably the latter right now. Five of the six APC writers submitting our selections for this week's winners have picked the Giants to win on Sunday afternoon, and it's my hunch that most of us who picked in that direction did so with the defense squarely in mind as the problematic part on the team.
There are a rather shocking number of unanimous selections this week, which of course means that many of us will be sinking and swimming together. Check out the picks below, and remember to submit yours over in the FanPost section for the community Pick'Em contest.

If you're counting, that makes 11 of the 15 games this week that are unanimous selections, and another two of them have only a single dissenter. Josh was the optimist this week, and was the only person to pick the Packers, while Tony went out on a limb predicting the 49ers to upset the Saints on the road. This week will be won and lost with the Jets-Bills and the Patriots-Panthers games, as those are the only two that see any significant disagreements.
As for the overall standings, Eric maintains his overall lead, but by only a single game over Jason and Vermont Cubs Fan. Meanwhile, Josh and Tony had weeks that they'll probably want to forget, and dropped down towards the bottom, while the Buccaneers' victory on Monday Night earned Tex a way out of the bottom spot.
