    Yes. 13 is hard to do but 14 is so elusive!

    The most elusive is the 16-0 record. Achieved only once in the dozen or more years of this contest. We have a special trophy should anyone dare do it again!

    With 32 teams in the NFL, and two with a week off each week only leaves 30 playing each week...thus only 15 games. This makes 16-0 pretty damn hard in the current era.

    ...or am I missing something?

    There are no byes the first few weeks, and probably the last few (too lazy to look it up), but certainly there are weeks where all teams play.

    Yes, the first few and last few weeks do not have byes. This year byes are week 4 through 12.

    It would not be fair for one team to get a bye right before their first-round playoff matchup if the other team did not. This is also why there is not a Thursday game the last week of the season.

    Thank you. I THOUGHT I had noticed that;
    for the first half of the season I am a bit distracted by the Nascar "playoffs."

    I just don't know what to do with the Seahawks and the Eagles. It's almost as if they send their practice squad out every other game!

    Week 8 saw a small handful of "lucky" 13 game winners. Congrats to Me, Lurker, BedofRoses, SkippyDO23, and RUBE!

    Quarter?

    I've been using a lucky schilling all season. Maybe that's what I have been doing wrong.

    Thanks! I still can't believe I'm in last place here. In another contest, with 15 players, I'm in first place. In fact, I'm so far ahead that if I completely skipped the next two weeks I'd STILL be in first place! I'm running away with the damn thing! The only difference is that contest you are picking using the spread, not straight up.

    I guess I'm glad this one is straight up - I have no clue what using the spread is. And shillings? Maybe for European games...they sure play in London a lot.
    But I have learned two things by doing this Pigskin: the negative number after a team's name is NOT how much they are expected to lose by and 19 weeks is a very looong time.

    Every week is brutal for me, lol. I've never considered using the spread - like some of you, it's just too confusing. I like the aspect of winning or losing!

    Good luck this weekend. We'll be cruising the Pacific so will be without internet for the next 10 days.

    Cheers!
