(Those lines directly from VegasInsider; the normal source, FootballLocks, hasn't posted anything for this season yet)

- Fred auto-bets on all TNF games unless he returns to UP to bet. If more than one TNF game, he picks the first kickoff or first alphabetically.

Potential side bets if there's interest (modifications welcome!):
• Insurance bet (weekly bet): bet that your underdog game will be canceled due to COVID-19. If it's cancelled, you get the points. If it's not cancelled, you can only get half the points if your underdog wins. You must post the prediction before 11:59PM Friday CST (i.e., before Saturday morning), and there cannot have been a public announcement that it's a certainty — only speculation.
• Players out due to COVID-19 (weekly bet): If you can predict how many players will be out in the entire NFL due to a positive test (non-zero answers), you get +3 points in addition to your normal bet.
• Correctly predict how many players will die this season due to COVID-19 for +6 (must be a non-zero number) (one-time bet)
• Correctly predict which week Bill Belichick will die due to COVID-19 for +6 (one-time bet)

Fangio should be fired and expelled from the NFL for that shitastic coaching job he did in the 4th quarter of Den-Ten.

Weird decision to not buy more time when they only had a 1-point lead..
[Fangio]: ""It was totally my fault there, I had too much thought there on what I was going to call on defense. I missed it. ... All the coaches chip in on that, the offensive coaches when we're on defense ... [but] it was just my miss on that one, nobody else's.""
