Currently, home teams are 8.5 games under .500. ...makes me wonder if a higher than average number of better than average teams have played on the road so far this season. Maybe I can get my intern to look into it.

Congratulations to Funemployed for winning the Week 7 award, Choose Your Own Adventure Award -- You get to choose one award from a selection of two non-negative awards and a higher-variance, possibly-negative award:
  • Jables' Home Field Advantage
  • Random Poster's Lucky 7
  • The Arbitrary Award: If you use this award you may flip your pick for all non-Divisional games for one team for the rest of the season.

The default option will be JHFA applied to Funemployed's week 13 picks. He may reject this choice and make his own before TNF's kickoff.

Additionally, he, along with Carrie’s Carebears & Jahiegel have won the "Change One Future Pick" award. The use of this award may be declared at anytime before the kickoff of the game it affects. It expires at kickoff of the final game of the season.

Finally, an additional award or two:

Pat on the Back™ award:
Way to go, Kid Rock, KS6392, Patience, & The Arbitrary. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Redskins pick to the 49ers. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, glassjaws. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Bears pick to the Saints. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go again, The Arbitrary. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Broncos pick to the Chiefs. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, MayanActuary. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Dolphins pick to the Bills. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, ldancer911. You wisely chose to use the Jables' Home Field Advantage award to add three points to all of your away team picks this week. Away teams you picked included the Vikings, Rams, Texans, 49ers, Cardinals, & Patriots who all won anyway. You also picked the Dolphins (-10) & Texans (-7) who lost by too much in order for this award to make a difference. But, you also picked the Chargers, who lost by only 3, adding three points to their score makes it a tie for you. When all is said & done, you picked up a tie instead of a loss! Nice job!

Here are the week 7 standings:
Code:
