Fat Jesus went 4-0 last weekend, while I took a risk on the Colts and got burned. However, this week we agree on all four games, so we’ll be going into the championship round with a tie as well. Brodrick Kincaid appears to have third place locked up, while Reyno Island and Flip Strickland are battling for fourth.

This week we have two unanimous picks, as we all like the Broncos over the Ravens and the Patriots over the Texans. We are split on the Packers-49ers game, while most of us are calling for a Seahawks win over the Falcons.
