So we have a new look now. I had originally been using a wordpress theme that I kind of arbitrarily picked because it had some green grass on it, which reminded me of turf, even though I think it was originally intended to be something of a gardening theme.

Seattle is finally toppled from atop Chicago, Chicago is pasted by New England, but Miami’s victory over the Jets makes Chicago look even stronger. The rankings were 10-6 this last week.

A rare accurate week this season! Last week’s picks were 11-5, which should lead to a slightly more stable graph.
Time for the Week 10 Beatpath Graph! The picks were 6-8 last week – we’ve had upsets galore this season, and it will be really interesting to look at the record when the season is over. We also have what looks to be a weirdly high number of teams with no beatlosses – all the […]
The rankings were 8-5 in week 9. Not as many upsets, but a couple of very curious shifts in the graph. Whither Baltimore…?
