• FootballPros.com 2015 Upset Special Week #16: Let's Get Next Year's Naughty Campaign Underway, Shall We?


    Seasons Greetings, you little savages.

    Rich took down his third win of the season by winging it with the Falcons. Matt, Ragar and I all cashed in as the Lions won their tilt against the Saints..

    This weekend is brimming with playoff implications, a couple interesting home 'dogs and a stupidly large spread or two.

    Roll it.

    STANDINGS


    Rules:
    • One pick per week
    • Your chosen team must be at least a (+3) underdog (Only games listed in this column are eligible)
    • Your chosen team must win the game outright (no 'pushes' or 'covers')
    • Season winner is the one with the most upsets correctly chosen between Week #1 through the Conference Championship Games (20 weeks all together)
    • There will be a points system to determine a winner in the event of a tie
    • Points will be accumulated by adding the game spreads for your correct picks (if you take Carolina (+4.5) and Carolina wins, you will be awarded a win and 4.5 points). Be careful making picks based on the number of points possible. Points only count if you are tied for the total wins lead when the whole contest is finished.
    • The No Upsets Option: Predict correctly that 'No Upsets' will occur in any given week and you will be awarded one win and a point total equal to the sum of all the spreads in that week's Upset Special. If you wish to exercise the 'No Upsets' Option, that prediction is due by 5 minutes prior to kickoff of the first game of the week in question. This includes Thursday Night Football or Saturday games. The 'No Upsets' option is confined to the Upset Possibilities listed in this article.
    • Picks are due no later than 5 minutes before the scheduled start of the broadcast time for your game. The FootballPros.com time stamp on your post is gospel.
    • Spread lines, once posted, will remain static throughout the week. This isn't The Sports Book at Caesar's Palace, after all.
    Let's. Get it. ON!!

      The Redskins look like the play, but they're 1-5 on the road. I can't pull the trigger.

      I do like the Jets, but isn't it time for Andy Reid and Alex Smith to lose a game they shouldn't?

      I'm going Browns

      I've said all season I think the Bengals are a good team. I've said all season I do not believe in this Denver team. So, I'm going with my convictions. Give me the Bengals

      I also want to say I love the picture this week, Biggie!

      I'm with Brian. I've had a weird feeling about this game for a couple weeks. Give me the Browns.

      hmm..

      >Official change<

      instead of a pick against ARI, w/recent loss of Mathieu
      how about a pick against DET, w/recent Quin out due to head inj?

      so *** SF *** it is....
