NFL Week 8 Results: Are Things Starting To Look Up?

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

Compared to my last few weeks of predictions, this week is MUCH better. It’s not that impressive and I am likely still several games behind Andrew, but is this the beginning of a comeback? Or is it just me treading water to stay semi-relevant with his picks? Let’s TAKE A GANDER!

So, Dez Bryant, who's the better wide receiver? (Source: Wikipedia)

Another Take On Predicting The Entire 2013 NFL Season

Here is a different take on the entire 2013 NFL season, done by my friend Andrew. To give his perspective he is a Colts fan, so I hope that eases your understanding of his choices, and to understand some choices he made that were probably agonizing (picking the Patriots to win a single game I’d say is one of those choices).  Unlike the previous prediction post, Andrews is easier to see which team wins each game (it’s the team in bold incase you couldn’t tell). His provides more balance in win total than mine does as well.  It’s always good to see a comparison between predictions, not only because making predictions are awesome, but because it’s interesting to see if two minds come to the same conclusion without consulting one another – or if neither set of predictions is close to being correct.  Enjoy the predictions and comment below for any agreements, disagreements, or book signings.
