I'm not sure if the questions were tough, if this week was just wacky, or what other combination of circumstances caused it, but Week 8's bye week Cheesestradamus contest was a debacle. The top scorer on the week had only 8 points, and the average score was less than 1.25 points. Let's just say that very little changed on the overall leaderboard, and with one week to play in the first half, the pressure's on.
With one week to go, Miguelito1734 has a 4-point lead on pacsun and a 5-point lead on the 3rd place tie between bigpoppaloaf, Bush League All Star, and mgulrud. This Sunday's game against the Chargers will determine whether one of these players will claim the top spot--or will someone farther back go Beast Mode on the rest of the field and sneak in for the win?
Here are the bye week results, and the overall standings are after the jump.
