    Pick the Winners!

    Each week, 6 NFL games will be up for speculation. The games will be picked at random. I will pick the first 6 games for Week 1. Whoever gets the most correct picks will choose the games for the following week. In the event of a tie, I will punt.

    Due to delays beyond my control, I am late in starting this up so this week these are the games to pick:
    Baltimore @ Denver
    Cincinnati @ Chicago
    Miami @ Cleveland
    Kansas City @ Jacksonville
    Green Bay @ San Francisco
    Houston @ San Diego

    You will pick the winners. No accounting for point spread, just the straight up winner. If the team you picked to win does so, you get a “win” as well. Your record for each week be 6-0, 5-1, etc. If a game ends in a tie, everyone gets a tie as well.

    Depending on the amount of participation, we can have this continue through the playoffs as well. Those with the best records during the regular season can continue on picking winners for the playoff games. It would be difficult to project how this would work until we know how many participants we have.

    Weeks 1-15 all feature a Thursday game. Picks for the week would need to be entered prior to any game being played, so let's say that as long as the pick was posted in this thread prior to the Thursday Night kickoff, it is valid. The timestamp of the post will be the standard.

    In the interest of fairness, any post that is edited would be subject to “scrutiny”. Just post your picks again if you made a mistake.

    This is just for fun, no money involved. Just trash-talking and bragging rights.

    Had a tough time picking the Cincinnati/Chicago game. Cinci is supposed to be a tough team this year, but first game of the year is hard to call.

    I had a tough time with that one too. Both teams are pretty solid on defense, but I gave the nod to the Bears since they are at home.
