Yeah. And the Bills didn't play well but I knew that game would be close despite what Vegas had the spread (15.5 a few hours before game time, I could have made some money had I bet on the Giants to beat it).

Hurts hasn't looked good at all this season and it's been the defense that's been the star of the team. That game-losing interception surpassed his total last year, his touchdown and yards per attempt percentages are way down, his quarterback rating so far is worse than his first full season, and his total rating is way down from last year. Yes, his completion percentage is near even but he's not the guy he was last year. This game might have proved it but Sirriani and company might have to see what's going on. One possibility is that Hurts is hurt again but is trying to tough it out like Aaron Rodgers last year. Another possibility is that he's turning into Carson Wentz 2.0 and going from an MVP-level season to mid-level and declining before our very eyes.

If I were Nick, I'm make sure to get Mariota ready if Hurts continues to hurt his team's chances of winning.

Went 11-4 and had another top ten finish but I'd have rather gone 4-11 and remained in Last Man Standing. I'm still kind of salty about that.

This week looks to be among the hardest, as many of the better teams are on the road this week. But, any given Sunday.

My picks:
Jacksonville
Detroit
Las Vegas
Indianapolis
Buffalo
Giants
Tampa Bay
Rams
Seattle
Green Bay
Kansas City
Miami
San Francisco (27-22 tiebreaker score)

That was some regular season. Didn't win any weekends but I had some good weeks. For the entire season, I got close to 60% of games right and had a better total result than both my sister and brother-in-law. Not bad for me.

My least favorite part was picking NFC South games. I don't think any of those teams wanted to win that division.

Meanwhile, my Super Wild Card Weekend picks.

Buffalo
Kansas City
Cleveland
Dallas
Los Angeles
Tampa Bay

The last two could go either way.

LaFleur did Jordan Love dirty at the end.

And I wonder if this is the end for Mike McCarthy in Dallas.
