Cheesestradamus Week 13: Packers @ Giants and Thanksgiving Recap

New, comments

It's Friday, which means that I'm slacking off on this weekend's Cheesestradamus contest. Never fear, though, the post is here!

In week 12, we got the best bonus prediction of the season: Tuna guessed that Ndamukong Suh would be ejected from the game. I don't know if that was a shot in the dark or some sort of psychic insight, but good work by you, Tuna! Several people also guessed that Aaron Rodgers would win the Galloping Gobbler award, a prediction which I seriously thought about not counting. However, since Rodgers was 0 for 1 in opportunities to win it (Driver won in 2009), I have to credit those people with the points according to the rules. Finally, NorthStarr won Week 12 with a 13 point day, and he now shares the lead with paterack7.
