UPDATE:  TONY ROMO MAY SEE SOME TURF TIME SUNDAY.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS’  PASS RUSHER ROBERT MATHIS ANNOUNCED RETIREMENT FOLLOWING SUNDAY’S GAME.

With Oakland Raider QB Derek Carr, out with a broken Fibula: We will get a real chance to see what BACKUP QB MATT McGLOIN has to serve up.  Can he step into the position, smoothly.  Or will he hit several road bumps.

RECAP: WEEK 16.  Let’s start with the biggest surprise.  Clevland Browns are no longer W-I-N-L-E-S-S!!!!  They took advantage of  the Raiders “safe mode”  to earn a 20-17 VICTORY.  Avoiding the shame of a winless season..  

Once more we were treated to an OT game.  Played by the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills, with the Dolphin on top 34-21

ONE game was a single point separation.  The San Francisco took advantage of a player conservative game by a team  already in the playoffs.  With a 22-21 Victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

ONE game by two points.  That being the Houston Texans win over the Bengals from Cincinnatti with a score 12-10.

The only  game won by 3 points was settled with a 34-31 OT WIN Miami Dolphins, topping the BILLS OF Buffalo.

FORthose of you who do not know how confidence ranking goes, let me explain.

If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT).  The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game.  EXAMPLE:  Say this week we have 16 games.  The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1.   We use the Monday night game as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broke by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating tams) final score, without going over.

If we were playing this is how my sheet would look;  My pick will be in bold Capital letters.  you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting.  I will show my correct points in Bold

YOU can adopt the scoring  described above.  Or, the optional method.  A  negative score for missed games.  We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions.  EXAMPLE:   if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pt on the second game and lost you would still have a Positive 1.  HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a -14 score.

I will fill in my picks Thursday.  Until then feel free to:

Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use.  Or to see if you can beat me.

IF YOU SEE I MADE A MISS COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.                                                                                                                                                   * Keep in mind; NFL  sometimes uses, “FLEXIBLE SCHEDULEING”, which means they        may change game times.  Unless I catch the last minute change you will see the original schedule.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
