Great weekend ahead with 4 excellent (well at least intriguing) matches being televised. In addition - Indy @ Cincy features two division leaders, plus 2 games which are (more or less) elimination games for both teams (Miami excepted, but loss is very damaging). Each of the seven matches are tricky.


So, following on from Db1974's Thanksgiving competition, where my good self and the mightymac took the honours - we'll give you also-ransCool a chance to redeem

Positions after the 2 early games - roller-coaster like the gamesShocked, finally settled with 8 of the 14 tied at the top on 5 points. 2 games at 9.30pm, the BIG one Seahawks at 49ers. Combined wisdom says Chargers but 3 of the top 8
looking for the Giants, big split on Seahawks/49ers.

So, obvious from early on that Chargers were an easy 3 points, and a lot hinged on Seahawks and 49ers - think Dirk and Wallflower would have led if Seahawks came through, but not to be. So TOP 4 can still win, also Clay can as well but needs a Panthers/Bears finish. Wallflower and sideshowbob can finish close but can't get top spot, i don't believe.

ive bet on the saints to win, but carolina +3. only way i can make a profit is if new orleans win by 1-3 points. not sure why i done that, cos i think the saints will win easily. but im gonna go with it now i done it.
