I guess I'll change for the very off-chance that everyone else explodes in the last 3 games

Unless racefan and snakes get two weeks of wrong answers in succession, I can't mount a comeback. Their streaks beat everyone else already. D3f3nder went 15 in a row in 2016. Can one or both of racefan and snakes tie the record?

Micc can also tie it with three consecutive correct picks!

Snakes has tied D3f3nd3r's all time best 15 game streak record. If Snakes wins next week, he will get the all time record all to himself and the win for this year's competition. Yes, Racefan could tie him in that scenario in overall picks assuming Snakes gets 16 right and 17 wrong while racefan goes perfect week 16 and 17. BUT then Snakes will win via the Streak tie breaker so if Snakes wins next week, the game is effectively over. Snakes wins next week, the only thing he has left to play for is the shot at the full season perfect.

Racefan can only win if he goes perfect rest of the way and snakes strikes rest of the way

I kinda have to hope I go perfect rest of the way and racefan and snakes get at least 2 strikes a piece

Micc has to hope he goes perfect rest of the way and I get at least 1 more strike. And racefan and snakes get at least 2 strikes total. Doing this will also only result in Micc getting a tie with Snakes. Micc can't win it all by himself at this point.

Gamma's hail mary doesn't pay off, and the Jets win gives Racefan his first strike (and takes me out of the game). Four remain - Snakes on no strikes, Racefan and Poker on one, and Micc on two. Given that Micc's two strikes were weeks one and two, he's on a 13-game streak and can still force a tie!

In post 295, D3f3nd3r wrote:Four years ago, I attended my first and only football game - a mid-season matchup between the post-Fitzpatrick Jets (in Bryce Petty's first start), and the pre-McVay Rams (in Case Keenum's last). In an absolute barnburner of a game, the Rams pulled off a 9-6 victory in a game in which one total touchdown was scored (by the Jets, amazingly!), and the Jets blew it with an interception at three minutes left in the fourth quarter that caused me to get up and leave MetLife.

The first matchup since then between these teams...will not be nearly as close or as interesting as that one. Rams

Natural conclusions:
Adam Gase > Todd Bowles
Jeff Fischer > Sean McVay
Case Keenum > Jared Goff

Those conclusions feel so wrong. How about we just be happy the game was more interesting this time

Also Gregg Williams is supposedly better than Brandon Staley (Rams defensive coordinators) this one is a bit of a trip given Williams’s recent employment history

The nerve to pick the birds! I am rooting so hard for the giants now. Browns need to clinch and I don't want to lose here either.

The browns put 4 wrs on the covid list today including landry. And Jacksonville will be without James Robinson and in full tank for trevor mode.

I switch to DA BEARS!

Racefan bets against the Jets again and it doesn't pay off again; Micc's streak of correct picks ends at 13 with the Bengals' win. PokerFace clinches survival of the season, and Snakes clinches the win in this year's competition!

Glad I saved Tennessee. They will want playoffs badly and Houston just lost to the Bengals. Go Titans. Give me a 1 strike season!

Oh wow, I didn't realize you still had them available as a choice to you. Colts need to win and should, BUT unlike the Chicago game Jags don't have as much motivation to lose since Jags have lock on first draft pick regardless of win or lose. And there is a chance Jets beat the patriots this weekend with how bad patriots be looking right now and Jets trending upward. I think Belichick could absolutely phone it in as the patriots to get a better draft pick for his eventual QB of the future

Good luck on your perfect, snakes

Uh I was going to pick New England here, but since that didn't work out for me the last two weeks, my second choice is...

Thanks! Even if the Jaguars are trying, the Colts will be trying harder and they're the much better team, so I feel pretty good about my pick. But the Jaguars did get their only win against the Colts so it's definitely possible they beat them again.

I also think your pick will pan out for you. The lack of preseason and new QB in new system is why I think colts lost the first week. It being an away game and a divisional game against a team that was keeping its qb and system, also helps why jags won then. The same luck isn't going to factor into this game. Indy is playing with a purpose and Jags aren't. Jags could win, but they lack the right team and situation/motivation that Indy has now
