Miscellaneous observations so far:
The longest beatpath so far is from the NY Giants through Detroit.
Second longest is Carolina through Minnesota.
Beatpaths outperformed me this week! 10-4 so far, and I went against two of the successful picks.
Buffalo is undefeated over two winless teams that are supposed to be good.
San Diego is winless under two undefeated teams that are supposed to be bad.
Teams with three or more teams under them: NYG (6), WAS (4), CAR (4), NO (3), DEN (3), NE (3), ARI (3). Either PHI or DAL will join that list with 3 if they don’t tie. If Houston had beaten Baltimore, then PIT would have joined the list with 4.
Looking at Arizona’s beatpaths (MIA, SF, SEA), it reminds me again of how teams in weak divisions have a draft disadvantage. If they keep splitting season series with each other, they’ll have better records than if they reside in a tough division where they get swept all the time.
Oakland could quite possibly not stink.
