So, it's all come down to this! The final week of the NFL season is upon us! Time to see who will be the champion of the picks contest in the Regular Season!

This week, we will be doing a bit of an extra challenge, as a tiebreaker for the final week. When you pick the final game of the year (This year, Packers @ Lions), include the final score of the game, as well. Here's how that tiebreaker will work:

Quote:
In case of a tie: Tie breaker will be the prediction of the prime time game of the week, and the number of points by which a person misses each score will be counted.

For example if a person predicted
Packers 27, Bears 24 and the actual score was
Packers 17, Bears 27 - the person would be off by 10 with the Packers and off by 3 with the Bears for a total error of 13. Lowest error total wins the tie breaker.


Good luck in this final week, everyone!

Standings after Week 16

1. AdamJones113 155-83 (Wk. 16: 9-7)
2. BrewersFuzz 154-84 (Wk. 16: 10-6)

So, the Niners actually won a game. And the Browns won a game. Good Lord, man. Props to LGM for getting the Browns pick right, and to AgentP for getting BOTH the Eagles and Jaguars pick right to get Best Record of the Week status.

Also, our new record for unanimous games (not including games people didn't pick): 41-5.

Let's do this again next week, shall we?

I want to clarify this before I make my picks;

So if I predict the Packers win 24-23, and the Lions end up winning 24-23, I would have 2 error points there. Let's say Person B predicted that the Lions win 30-23. They have 6 error points. Does this mean that, even though I incorrectly picked the winner of the game, I would hold the tie breaker because my score was closer to the actual?

Off the top of my head, I'd say yes. I'm not 100% sure on that, but maybe about 85%.

Agent, I'm not sure how much you hang around Brushback Baseball these days, could you ask the person that runs the picks about that, if possible?

It's definitely based on the error-point system and not correctly picking the winner (also Brushback almost died, idk if you knew that @dish)
