2013 NFL Picks, Week 4: APC Tries to Bounce Back After Crazy Week 3

Mike Zarrilli

Picking NFL games doesn't get any easier as bye weeks kick in, but the APC staff is up for the challenge in week four.

Week three in the NFL was easily the worst week we have had in picking games in recent memory. Here at APC, only three of the seven authors picked better than .500, and one (me) was so bad that he finished with a losing record. This seems as good a time as any to remind everyone that our picks are for recreational purposes only, and should not be used as guidance for any gambling purposes, legal or illegal.

Now, after that debacle, let's get on to week 4, where we all hope to bounce back in a big way. Make sure you do the same by getting at mike_o and company in the community Pick'em challenge.

Dolphins @ Saints NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

This week's unanimous picks are the 49ers on the road tonight, the Ravens, Bengals, Colts, Chiefs, Titans, and Broncos, as well as the Saints on Monday night against a 3-0 Dolphins team. I'm glad that everyone picked Indy this week - if anybody had actually picked the Jaguars I might have had to fire them. The only game with a single dissenter is Tex picking the Cardinals to win at Tampa Bay.

As for overall records, Eric took a one-game overall lead and did so as the only person with double-digit correct picks last week.

Author Overall Record Week 3
Eric 34-14 10-6
Jason 33-15 8-8
VCF 31-17 9-7
Josh 29-19 9-7
Tony 28-20 8-8
Dan 28-20 8-8
Tex 26-22 7-9

Good god, I'm bad at this.
