Holy cats, APC! After the lowest scoring game ever in Week 6, you guys came back with a vengeance in Week 7, dropping a ridiculous 6.7 point average. That's almost a point better per submission than the previous high, in the Week 3 game against the Bears. Maybe the divisional games just bring out the best in your prediction abilities.
In any case, we have a two-way tie for the Week 7 lead this week, as Paterack7 and Shoes31 topped everyone with 14 points. Lonebadger was alone in third with 13. All in all, an astounding 22 players (almost 1 in 5!) scored in double digits, and only three people were completely shut out. Each of the top 5 overall players scored either 10 or 11 points this week, so the overall leaderboard remains largely intact, with miguelito1734 still holding a slim lead.
Here's your week 7 results. The overall leaderboard and some very important news about the contest as a whole can be found after the jump.

In general contest news, it's been decided that we'll be splitting up the Cheesestradamus contest into two halves. Each half will have 8 Packers games and one bonus prediction set, so the split will happen after Week 9. We'll do a bonus set this week for the Packers' bye week, and in the second half we'll have a bonus set in Week 17 in addition to the normal Week 17 predictions. Finally, do you remember when I said that the winner will earn a fictional wheel of cheese? Thanks to Brandon, there will be a REAL prize awarded to the winner of each half, and I'll do a Q&A post with the winner (tiebreakers and details will be explained soon). This means that if you're out of the running in the overall standings right now, you'll have a chance to redeem yourself over the final 8 weeks in the second half of the contest. Good luck!
