    This is a fun game that I have played for several seasons now.
    Rules:

    There are 16 games for you to select the winner.
    Choose who you think will win and then place them in order according to your confidence of that team winning. In other words, #16 would the game where there was a perceived mismatch, if you are right you would score 16 points for that game. For those bubble games that could go either way, you would select #1, and score 1 point.

    The highest point total wins.

    Here are this week's games.

    Houston at Kansas City
    Pittsburgh at Miami
    Jacksonville at Tennessee
    Cleveland at NY Giants
    Baltimore at Cincinnati
    New Orleans at St. Louis
    Chicago at Minnesota
    Philadelphia at Detroit
    Arizona at Atlanta
    San Diego at Denver
    Green Bay at Indianapolis
    San Francisco at Seattle
    Tampa Bay at Oakland
    Dallas at Washington
    Rice at Texas
    North Texas at Baylor

    I almost forgot to mention, in the case of a tie, there will be two tie-breakers.

    The over-under and the total offensive yardage gained by both teams.

    For this week,the tie-breaker game will be Houston at Kansas City

    I'm in on a game like this in VA Beach. Being done by a radio station. If you have the most point each wekk you "WIN FABULOUS PRIZES!!!". Whoever has the most points at the end of the season gets a 55" HiDef TV.

    HOORAY! I finally win something instead of going one and done as I did in Survivor and Survivor Loser's Game. Hopefully this means my curse of the jinx has ended....but probably not.

    127 is a great score.

    They used to have this contest in my local paper and I won the $100 weekly prize once with a score of 120.
