Going into the night game it's all over for this week*...


A695814 will win this week and twig93, Ezekial Cumberland, redearedslider, & A Student will win runner up awards.





*assuming no one uses a COFP or other award to alter the results.

Change the Raiders to the Seahawks and Cowboys to Jaguars
-9 point differential on that one...

Seems like every week there's 3 shitshow games, have to dodge them with my COFPs. I was going to do Oakland to Seattle but I was also looking at the Dolphins and Redskins games...

Looks like Patience is going to get the Even Steven Award for this week for changing to one winner and one loser.

Congratulations to A695814 for winning the week 6 award, Jables' Home Field Advantage, which must be declared before Thursday's kickoff.

Spoiler:
Jables' Home Field Advantage: Jables said that home field is worth roughly 3 points in determining the gambling lines. Winning this award allows you (and only you) to add 3 points to the scores of all the road teams (that you chose to win) for a given week for your picks only. As a result, it could change some of your losses to ties or even wins for you. For those players who went extra heavy on the home teams, I will allow this award to be used to add 1 point to the scores of all the home teams instead (possibly changing a tie to a win, or a loss to a tie).
All you need to do is declare which week you would like the advantage applied to.


I have been notified that he intends to use it for his Week 11 picks.


Additionally, he, along with twig93, Ezekial Cumberland, redearedslider, & A Student, have won the "Change One Future Pick" award. The use of this award may be declared at anytime before the kickoff of the game it affects. It expires at kickoff of the final game of the season.

Time for some awards...

Pat on the Back™ award:
Way to go, Kid Rock, Patience, & twig93. You wisely chose to use a COFP award to change the Raiders to the Seahawks. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, Oliver Klozov & statman4. You wisely chose to use a COFP award to change the Giants to the Eagles. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, Oliver Klozov & Ezekial Cumberland. You wisely chose to use a COFP award to change the Broncos to the Rams. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, Oliver Klozov . You wisely chose to use a COFP award to change the Titans to the Ravens. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Salt in Your Wounds™ award:
Way to go, Patience. You bungled by using a COFP to change the Cowboys to the Jaguars. You picked up an extra loss! Nice job!

Here are the overall standings after week 6:
Code:
