    Again the weather was a big issue, but not as much as you'd think... most people would probably have been as close had they thought the day would be sunny and bright. Most changes cut Arizona's score but also the Patriots', so had relatively little effect.

    Only one player was within two 2TDs... and he won for the second time this year, having also been the best predictor for the second Miami game.

    Congratulations to this week's Predict the Score Winner, NJPatsfan26!

    Season standings

    A new leader this week... smg93 appears to be peaking in December just like the Pats. Last week's leader cstjohn17 and former leader Bostonian1962 are tied for third, only four points back.

    With the way scores have been, 2 TDs is still well within reach even if this is the final week, and that puts a dozen players in the red zone. But this may not be the final week... the game lives as long as the Patriots do!

    This week's average was our third-highest, 32 points.

    I have no clue how I got near the top of the leaderboard, other than "the game's still wide open" which I keep repeating. I was 22nd only three weeks ago. I don't know if anyone noticed, but my prediction is usually the sample score in the first post of the thread, "For example, if you predict..." I usually change the sample scores each week, though I have forgotten a couple of times, or added a changed prediction later. Like many have found, somehow changing your prediction close to gametime rarely does much good and often hurts. Strange how that works.

    Hats off to those (multitudes) who are ahead of me.

    Bigtime props to those in the Top Ten--you are either very good at this, very lucky or you've figured out how to fool the Board's time stamp (just kidding on the latter). May the best/luckiest of you win!!!

    Yeah, count me in as one of those who out-thought himself last week. I think I have too many people to pass at this point but the top ten is within reach. Hats off to NJPatsfan26, you were the only one remotely close to the final score last week.

    I'm only 2 TD, 1 PAT, a 2 point conversion, and a FG away from being tied for the lead.

    So this is what it feels like to be on top. I hear lots of footsteps though. It's close!

    I changed my score twice last year, and it hurt me both times. So this Sunday, I am watching pre-game stuff, and saw all the snow etc., and figured it'd be hard to kick the ball. I already had the Pats at 28, but I was going to change Zona from 24 to 21. I had it typed to change it........sat there.......and decided that it hurts me to change the score, stick with my original prediction. I closed the browser without sending. I'm now 4 points out of first instead of 1 point out. Now I know we all have stories like this, so my point is:

    Stick with your first prediction...........or don't stick with it. :) Happy Holidays to all!

    Let me be the first to congratulate Alamo for his winning this year's contest. Gutsy prediction on the Bills game! If Slater can fall on the stinkin' ball for a TD, and if the Ghosts' kick doesn't get pulled just right, I follow last years 2nd place finish with a win. But, if if and and buts were candy and nuts, what a wonderful world this would be. :)

    I can't even say I finished in 2nd two years in a row (maybe that is a good thing), because again if my math is right, I think jbb9s leaped one point in front of me, and thus I finished 3rd.

    Again, a big congrats to Alamo for winning bragging rights. Can't think of a better person to win this thing (O.K., maybe one) after all the hard work put in to let us all do this. Thank you.

    Disclaimer: If my math is wrong, and I slighted anybody, forgive me.
