So I noticed there is no Monday night game this week ... is that because Monday is Christmas Eve?

I guess that would also explain why the Saturday night game is on ESPN rather than NFL Network. I hope (against hope) that the Lion can pull off the upset .... bring the Falcons down to earth for a week. In my dreams, right?

The NFL gave-up Monday games for the final 2 weeks of the season as part of their broadcast agreement with ESPN, and a handshake agreement with the NCAA to not compete with the bowl games outside the standard 1pm and 4pm Sunday schedule. Hence, the final week of the NFL's regular season sees no game on Thursday, Sunday prime time, or Monday.

Linda,

I note you scored 13 right in last week's picks. What an accomplishment. Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you.

During this season and to the best of my knowledge, I don't think anyone has gotten that many right on a weekend with 16 games. Gee, I think I hear Las Vegas calling. Will you be my bookie?

Linda, you and Nancy have been bright stars in this thread. I love that both of you love pro football.

I wish you well in this week's picks.


Christmas blessings to you also and to everyone who participates in this thread.

Leon, what a kind, sweet gentleman, you are. Thank you for acknowledging my success last week. The world could use more gentlemen like you. Not afraid to give an attagirl/attaboy to someone.

However, I don't think you'd be well served in using me for your bookie. I'll probably fall on face this week. Just got lucky last week.

Once again, thanks to a true gentleman.

Linda,

Congratulations on a spectacular week.I'm glad to see you do well.I totally agree with your assesments on the Chargers/Jets and Giants/Ravens.I'm picking the Chargers over the Jets,because they are slightly less pathetic.I'm also picking the Ravens over the Giants,because they are due for a win.

Have a wonderful Christmas!
