A lot of predictions were finalized this week, but first we'll start with Professional Pick'em first.
I was able to get 14 of 16 to pass Geiss and finish in 1st in the pro pick'em.
What's even more surprising was Gary jumped up into a tie for 2nd with Geiss. That means I won the 60 point bonus, and Gary and Geiss are splitting the 2nd and 3rd place points, which equal out to 30 points a piece for them. Good season guys.
Also, Gary and I each earned one more 5 point bonus for the last weekly pick'em bonus of the year.
Bowl Pick'em is looking like Shawn's to lose. He has a 3 bowl lead with only 5 bowls left to play. Eplin and Munez are in 2nd and 3rd, while Hale and Jim are in 4th.
The 6 NYE bowls are worth 5 points per prediction. So, let's see what our totals are.
So, lots of predictions to go over, but let's start with college first.
Alabama beat Washington and Clemson beat Ohio State to give us a rematch of last year's CFP final.
Joe and Rob are the only two who had both of these teams in the finals. Both with Alabama winning it.
Colin and Folden and Gary had Clemson winning it. Me, Shawn, Munez, and Geiss also had Alabama winning it all.
Jim is out of it with Ohio State winning it, but does still have Alabama losing the National Championship.
Onto the NFL, let's start first with the finalized predictions we made of the stats leaders.
Receiving Yardage TY Hilton
Rushing Yards Zeke Elliott
Sacks Vic Beasley
Interceptions Casey Hayward
Folden was the only person to get any of these, when he picked Elliott.
Last night, KC won their game, while Oakland lost theirs. This led to KC being the AFC West Champion, and scoring 15 points for everyone but Geiss, Hale, Eplin, and Shawn.
Colin, Eplin, and Gary all received 15 points for choosing Oakland in the AFC wildcard. Surprisingly, those were the only Wildcard points that anyone got this year. Noone had Detroit, the Giants, or Miami.
Mike McCoy was fired by San Diego last night, this gave 15 points to everyone but Munez and Voyten. The cut off for fired coaches is tonight at midnight, so there's still time for someone's sadness to make you happy.
Green Bay won last night, which gives everyone the NFC North Champion.
Finally, the bears locked up the #3 pick in the draft. This gave 15 points to Geiss and Eplin.

Big Change since last week. My lead has jumped to nearly 100 points over Shawn at 2nd. Shawn has the lead in the Bowl Pick'em though, and can make a dent in the lead by next week.
Honestly, you guys all know what remaining predictions you have and can figure out what you need to happen to finish in the top 3. It's probably between Shawn and I now for the championship, but Joe and Colin still probably have an outside chance.
Happy New Year. We'll talk later bitches.
