If the Seahawks win, n = 13. If the Vikings win, n = 12.


Write up won't be until tomorrow.

Congratulations to silentassassin for winning the Week 13 award, Numbers' Nudge: This is an enhanced version of the RPL7 award. The winner of this award will have n points to distribute in the same way as the RPL7 award. n is determined by the number of wins correctly predicted in the week this award is won. The results of this award affect only the award winner.

The default option will be to add all 13 points to his Week 14 Buccaneers over Colts pick. He may reject this choice and make his own before TNF's kickoff.

Additionally, he, along with mjpetragnani, 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:

Salvage™ award: Whattayaknow, Funemployed. You bungled the COFP award by changing the Broncos to the Chargers, but then you wisely chose to use the Jables' Home Field Advantage award this week, turning that loss into a tie. Not too shabby.

Pat on the Back™ award:
Way to go, Patience. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Falcons pick to the Saints. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

pH7 award™: The pH7 award™ award goes to Ultimate Anyone?. He used his Numbers' Nudge award to apply 3 points to his Colts pick (who lost by 14), 3 to his Buccaneers pick (who lost by 17), 3 to his Steelers pick (who won anyway), and 2 to his Texans pick (who also won anyway). Just like a solution with a pH of 7, it's neutral.

Here are the week 13 standings:
Code:
Place No. Player
    1  7  Funemployed          131-59-2   68.75%
    2 26  Jahiegel             127-64-1   66.41%
