Editor Bump: With so many participants keeping their picks close to their chest, a little bump for the Pick'em finale so it's easy to find and monitor.
A bittersweet week of elimination as many participants missed the Friday Night kick-off (or just simply conceded defeat weeks ago) and as such, our Pick'em Standings have been stirred up a bit with CARDSxFAN32 securing a 1.4% lead over Bezekira while taking the Week Won Point for Week 16 with seven correct predictions. Miami earns the Golden Turd for the week as the majority of participants picked the Texans to lose while Tim V deserves a hat and a round of finger pointing and jeering for picking the Rams and declaring himself a Packers fan. Meanwhile, a big shout-out to JoeCB1991 for having the "balls" to pick the Bears over the Vikings...um, along with six other people.
Week 17 of the NFL schedule has become a Sunday orgy of football as the entire slate of 16 games plays on Sunday. In homage to the '08 Pick'em format, the final week of the '09 Pick'em League will require all sixteen games to be picked. Qualifying for the Pick'em Championship requires that this week's schedule is picked and the added eight games should give folks lots of opportunities to make up ground or lose ground. Omit a single game from your picks and you're eliminated so check your entries twice.
