Crap, my pick got postponed...

Guess I'll have to go for one of the late games.

Hmmmm... seems like that game is also likely to be postponed...

Fuck it, Dallas is good at finding ways to lose games. This one will be a challenge though...

You know what, I don't believe in either one, but this seems more likely, as Herbert has been lighting it up at least. My last change:

"Fuck it, Dallas is good at finding ways to lose games."

Seems you were correct - ankles just were not mean to let your foot point in that direction.

Btw, for future games, this seems a sensible idea if others agree:
If your game gets postponed (not forfeited+cancelled) due to COVID, if you want, you can just have your bet continue to apply for that game for whenever it eventually takes place. If it takes place the following week, you can still make an additional bet on that following week.
Example:
- Bet team A on week 6
- Team A game gets postponed to week 7
- Bet team C on week 7
- If A wins, you get those points
- If C wins, you get those points
- Doesn't matter if one wins but not the other; it's two separate weeks of betting

There was apparently a rule by the NFL commissioner that teams showing negligence in COVID protocols would forfeit the game if it's cancelled (*cancelled*, not suspended). If that happens, it seems like it would make sense that that game would still count if it was your bet.
Example:
- Bet on underdog D to win against E
- Game cancelled due to failed COVID protocols by team E
- You get those points
Example:
- Bet on underdog D to win against E
- Game cancelled due to failed COVID protocols by team D
- You do not get those points

Let me know! ;p

Sounds good to me. Though my original bet against the pats hinged on Newton being out, so I would've changed that one anyways.

You were super close to that "TEN buf 8" :D
I added the points and then saw that you changed your bet again ;p

I was happy for that Saints win :p .. but the NFL still needs to fix the overtime rules. I think they should have every player kick an undefended field goal from the 40 yard line. Best score wins. ;D

I'll take the Eagles over Ravens if CC doesn't put up the games.
