NFL CONFIDENCE PICKS WEEK 15 12/15-18-19/2022

 

CHIEFS: Clinch AFC West Title for 7th straight year.

VIKINGS: Complete biggest come back in NFL history.   Down to the Colts by 33 at halftime.   To win 39-36 in OT.    Congratulations to don’t say die Vikings of Minnesota.   Clinch NFC North.  (The previous comeback record was 32 pts.  Featured recently fired Colts HC  Frank  Reich as the HC for the Buffalo Bills over the Houston Oilers in a November 1992 WILD CARD GAME).  

NOTE:  If games are not in order it is because the NFL played with the schedule, a lot. 

  For those of you who are new here. This is  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.   You add up the TOTAL CORRECT PICKS.. That would be your score.  We use the Monday night (Last game played) as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) final score, without going over.

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 pts on the second game and lost you would still have  1 pt.

1.  HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a –14 score

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

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 MIS-COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.

  1. Hi there… thanks for the picks, I always look forward to reading them.
    One problem, Indy is playing Vikings, not Panthers…. thought I should pass this on.

    1. Thanks Nancy. Thanks for catching my mistake. I appreciate your reading my little post. I need input from all I can get.

      1. You are doing well with your picks, again thank you for sharing. I compare mine to yours. And I came back four times to make sure you really did take At so high over NO, and Indy over Vikes…. Gutsy

        1. Sometimes you just have to play a hunch for an upset. Sometimes you win. But there has been a lot of upsets this year. So why not a big one?
