You have the Texans playing two different teams on the selection page, which is arguably a little unfair to them to have a doubleheader.

Patriots becomes the latest team to become infected with the Wuhan Flu. It's only 3 cases, but one is the QB, and another is their top corner. (The 3rd is a practice squad player). Quality over quantity, I guess.

Texans have to play 2 games on the same day with a new coach .. that's a tough schedule.

Chargers have a double header as well

I picked Chargers in the Chargers @ Washington game under the presumption that "Chargers" here are really the Rams, who are playing in Washington. Chargers by 7 => Rams by 7
Likewise, I picked Texans in the Dolphins @ Texans game under the presumption that "Texans" here are the Dolphins' actual hosts, San Francisco. Texans by 13 => 49ers by 13

That was all kinds of messed up. I set people who picked the Chargers in the Washington game to Rams. I also set people who picked the Texans in the Dolphins game to the 49ers. I didn't edit the comments here. Recheck your picks.

My picks are in on the pick'em form but doesn't seem to want to add them to this comment location.

I'm not telling you how to do your job, rcade, but why are we spotting certain players between 10 and 70 points before the coin is tossed on the Thursday game?

Can I get some of those 10 to 70 points rcade is dealing?

Prof is clearly cheating.

It looks like locked picks are awarding points before the game has taken place.

Fortune favors the bold.

I somewhat forgot I picked the Bears. Figuring most missed last nights game, I came out to see who got it right and was shocked that I did :)

For close games I usually pick the home team and did so in this one.

OK. We'll buy your explanation this time. But we're watching you "prof" (if that is your real name).
