This contest was played under CBS Sports Football Pick'em under the pool called Rochester Challenge. Our contest winner this year was very good in the NFL picks and excellent in the college picks. Congratulations, Chris Sturgill. As is the case virtually every year, our NFL contest winner beat most experts who do this for a living. The CBS Sports experts seem to do better as a team than others I can find, so I included them. The USA Today experts used to be near the top of picking groups, but they gave it up last year and let different media folks who cover the different games for their teams make the picks. Maybe the USA Today folks heard that they were being destroyed by a group of guys mostly from South Carolina! Everyone can check out their NFL picks against the big boys’ experts below. The Bowl Game contest was won by Anthony Cancer. He got 24 correct out of 35 bowl games played. Most of the numbers just below involve NFL picks, but our contest winner is based on all picks in both NFL and college games. Those numbers, as usual, are at the very bottom. So, here are the numbers. Here are the final NFL standings for this year including playoffs. (Tie games count as incorrect picks.) Normally, you have to pick every regular season week except for one or two to be included. Not everyone picked all of the games. Unpicked games count as a loss. Michael O 187-98 65.6% Jacob J 181-104 63.5% Rick 180-105 63.2% Chris S 180-105 63.2% Billy 176-109 61.8% John 176-109 61.8% Derrick 175-110 61.4% Karl 168-117 58.9% Anthony 159-126 55.8% Greg 152-133 53.3% Here is the all-time NFL record for one season.
