If additional picks have come in (or changes have been made) after this post was written but before the deadline, they will be added to this post as soon as we can get to it later today.

Good luck, players. Enjoy the games and the rest of the day.

Win or lose, I've got good company with my Washington pick!

I'd have to give Coastal Storm the edge today.

Looks like the Panthers may have blown their chance. Bears 25 yd. INT return for a TD with 6:44 left in the game -- CAR 19, CHI 20 (xtra pt yet to come).

St. Louis Lambs get broiled in London. Oh well.

Whoa! Panthers get a FG, up 22-20 with just over 2 mins. left. Game for the Bears now riding on Cutler. Panthers defense need to hang on for Coach Ron Rivera, former '85 SB XX Champion LB.

Cleveland won an early game, Jack.

Well, there ya go. Apologies to Tinknocker.

Atlanta beat the Eagles as I predicted, and Miami beat the Jets, too, but no one was interested in just 1 pt., so no pick ups there. And Oakland is up 13-6 and near the KC goaline in the 3rd Q, with KC QB knocked from the game in the 1st half. Another good 1 pt. pickup opportunity passed on. There's half a season still left, don't forget -- plus the post-season. Tortise vs. Hare....

39 of 41 players separated by just 17.5 pts. going into this week.

As a season ticket holder with the Raiders, I have to say that today they looked like a team playing disciplined football. Only two penalties today for 20 yards - a low for a game this season; and only one interception. This coming week's game against Tampa Bay will be a good matchup.
