(if it is still tied, we'll move to a final tiebreaker TBD)

To review:
- Contestants send in your "BEST BET" of the week. If yours win and your opponent’s loses, you move on.

Thanks for the head's up EE. Glad I didn't jump the gun on this Thursday nighter. Caught the second quarter and Minny's offense just looked awful. I mean hey, good for Julius Peppers being able to run one back 50 yards at his age but Ponder's next throw? C'mon Man!

Good luck with your picks this week Otis.

Man, that was a close one for Seattle to cover but they pulled through for ya. Congrats Otis.

I was on Seattle's TT over 26 so I was actually cheering for you pretty hard in those final minutes. Perfect final drive for Seattle to get the cover. Good luck in the next round.
