Post your predictions here for Week 9, New England Patriots vs Washington Commanders

This contest is open to everyone, it's both a weekly and a season-long contest. Stakes are bragging rights.

*********** PLEASE NOTE THE SLIGHT CHANGE FOR THIS SEASON *********

******** Above the reply box is now an area to make your score prediction: ************

Here's an example of what it looks like:

You just slide the red markers and select your score, and then post your reply with your prediction and any additional comments in this thread so we can keep it the same way it always has been, with the exception of having you pick your score. This allows either me or @alamo to update the results much faster, ie: I've been posting the results within a day or two after the game :)

You will also want to drop a comment with your prediction as well for the sake of keeping the spirit of this contest intact as that's how @alamo has always done it. The scrollbars are just to make it easier for it to be tallied.

Getting back to the rules, as a one-time allowance for computer problems, forgetfulness, or whatever, one week can be missed and will be assigned that week's average score.

SCORING:

Your score is the COMBINED deviation of your predicted score for the Pats and opponents REGARDLESS OF DIRECTION.
For example, if you predict Patriots 31 Commanders 23 your score is how many points off of 31 the Pats are (over or under does not matter) PLUS how many points off of 23 the Commanders are (over or under again does not matter). Game winner does not matter. Lowest score wins.

You may change your prediction at any time before kickoff, which the window will close at that time and your selection will stand. Please keep this thread to predictions only (after you make the pick), no back-and-forth discussion of the game. A short comment explaining your pick is OK and encouraged after you've made your selection.

Good Luck!

Washington: 16

I'm assuming they'll bounce back this week.

I'm a fan of Howell. He's good. After this game it's possible a lot of us will be scratching their heads why we picked Zappe instead of Howell in the 4th round last draft. Zappe is on his way out of the league and Howell would probably be pushing Jones for his job. The 2023 Pats defense is mortally wounded without Gonzalez and Judon. Brian Robinson might have himself a game I'm a fan of him too.

17-10, in a game that I expect the Commanders will be flat, as they traded away two guys, that sends a bad message to the locker room IMO.

Washington defense is putrid. If Mac Jones can't score against this team, he won't score against anyone.

I'll give the Pats the slight edge at home to pull it out.

Please don't embarrass us out there, Mac10!
