Often, during my solid weeks picking games for our “Beat ‘The Putz’” contest, I would often boast – “Nobody Beats ‘The Putz’”. Well, in Week 3 of the NFL season, everybody beat yours truly.
My quick descent into parity has become parody for the masses as an 8-6 week allowed nearly 75 percent of our entries to climb above the new Mendoza line.
Two entrants managed to go 12-2 with Robert Piper emerging victorious after the tiebreaker.
Just a reminder – three entries were disqualified because they were not postmarked by our deadline of Friday 11:59 p.m., and another entrant forgot to enter a tiebreaker total (the total combined points of the Sunday night football game).
Good luck! – CP
Here are my Week 4 picks:
New York Giants
New England Patriots
