The Colts look awesome. They will be a great bet against the spread against the Chiefs and their woeful defense.

The Bears were a legit pick. Not as sure about the Texans though I could have seen them in the AFC title game.

I think with the remaining picks & teams, everyone on the "Down One" list is eliminated. All 4 possible SB combinations (Saints/Chiefs, Saints/Pats, Rams/Chiefs, Rams/Pats) have been picked, and according to the tiebreaker rules I think we're using, picking both SB participants beats picking the SB winner and a no-show.

My final score seems a little high if the Chiefs are suddenly going to start playing defense.

Funny that none of the Rams picks still have surviving opponents.

That's the home boy in me - the belief that Mahomes will score enough points to win (or close). If the D actually shows up for two more weeks, then the offense may be less aggressive.

I'm confident that Andy Reid will find a way to screw up again somehow.

That's certainly the way to bet. But he actually schemed to keep the defense off the field (went for it on 4th and short at least twice), so maybe you can teach an old walrus new tricks.

Saints loss drops the number of contenders from 19 to 4.

And if the Pats win, it would reduce the field to one – ElvisL1ves could be the winner in just a couple hours.

If I'm not mistaken, ElvisL1ves now joins me as the only players to be the only one to correctly pick the two SB teams correctly.

Nicely done!

And ElvisL1ves picks the winner as well, though he was a bit off on the margin.

The fact that he picked a low overall score is pretty impressive though.

Thanks, but that was because I expected the Pats to use the same game plan as they did in KC, based on Michel up the middle and short passes to Edelman and White, using up the clock, while Goff got the big-game jitters. I did not expect the Rams to be able to fool Brady with anything.

Hard to say -- I don't spend nearly as much time here as I used to, so as in the past two seasons, I'd forgotten all about it until late.

I'd like to say it won't happen next year, but I really can't be sure. Realistically, if you want to make this your own, I'm happy to officially pass along the baton.
