Week 15 Results

1T. Wendell – 13-3

1T. English – 13-3

1T. Papson – 13-3

Overall Standings

1. Papson – 146-76-2

2. Wendell – 143-79-2

3. English – 139-83-2

Wendell and English were so close to closing the gap by two games each but the Panthers came through big for Papson on MNF, and the result was a three-way tie for the second straight week, this time at an impressive 13-3. Wendell remains three games back with two weeks to go and English sits seven back still. It should be noted though that Papson’s 146-76-2 record would have him in 1st place by three games against the ESPN Expert Pickers. There are some more great games this week, starting with the Eagles/Giants tonight where the Birds will have a chance to play spoiler and deliver the GMen a loss in Philly as they look to clinch a playoff spot. Most of the games are being played on Saturday this week with Christmas on Sunday, highlighted probably by the Raiders visiting Indy in hopes of clinching the division and a bye in the playoffs. Both games on Christmas and the game on Monday prove to be exciting and have huge playoff implications with Baltimore traveling to Pittsburgh for the early game on Sunday (a Pittsburgh win clinches the AFC North but a loss could mean no playoffs for the Steelers) and Denver traveling to Kansas City in what is a must win for Denver to keep their playoff hopes and championship defense alive. On Monday night, Detroit visits Dallas in a must win to avoid having to beat Green Bay in Week 17 to make the playoffs, while Dallas can clinch the #1 seed with a win at home in Jerry World. Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all of you! Here are our picks for the week (7 games different than Papson so there is a chance!!):
