    Sorry Skippy and Gretchen...I'm doing my best to recover to make this a 3-person race after weeks of 60 and 80 points. I had what I thought was a fantastic chance last week, but the Chargers coach overdosed on analytics and the Browns stopped tackling on the final drive...so I lost 2 and you won 2. A 14-2 week would have made things manageable for me. Not ready to panic yet! Good luck to everyone in the last 3 weeks!

    Yeah. I understand the "killer instinct" but that was ridiculous. Just like the Ravens going for the kill the second time this season.

    Overall, so far, its been a "unique" kind of year in the NFL. You gotta roll the dice every week it seems!!! lol Unfortunately, my rolls have come up "snake eyes" more often than not. My hats off to the league leaders this year!!!

    We've got a healthy contest in the 3rd place area (not to say 1st and 2nd are out of reach for anyone). As a reminder - if there is a need to invoke a tiebreaker, the following rules apply:

    ● Tiebreaker #1 - Higher number of points scored for Week 18
    ● Tiebreaker #2 - Higher number of points scored for Week 17
    ● Tiebreaker #3 - Higher number of points scored for Week 16
    ● Tiebreaker #4 - Higher number of points scored for Week 15
    ● Tiebreaker #5 - Higher number of points scored for Week 14

    The same rules - starting with Lowest number of points - apply for the "most coveted" Last Place trophy.

    P.S. For the winners - I will solicit mailing addresses, but will wait until we get the trophies ordered. I tend to procrastinate and people move six times.

    Thanks, Bill, for running this entertaining contest year after year!

    Congratulations to SkippyD023 for his year-long consistency resulting in 1st place. Also, kudos to gsvec and Spencer for their top-3 finishes! And east-tennessee, somebody's got to be last. You are worthy!

    Lastly, I see that Black Monday caught up with TheDarkTower.org. So sad. Perhaps Merlin1958 will put his NY hat in the ring for this prestigious vacancy.

    Thanks to all for another fun year!

    Always a pleasure. Regardless of whether we win a trophy (which is RARE), or not that process is always the icing on the cake. We can't thank you all enough for your years (15 or more?) of support!
