13. One undefeated team will lose. Hopefully the Packers are healthy enough on offense. Although there's a good chance that Peyton Wheelchair Manning will make enough big plays for the Packers anyway.

It's a weird world we live in when Peyton Manning is considered as a positive factor for the other team in a regular season game.

Chris Hu put a 3 in his predictions, and might have won the week otherwise. Interesting.

ANNOUNCEMENT - Week 7 Results and Standings

First things first. It's certain that we lost another player this week. ReimTime has decided to focus on his real life and thus will stay away from the internet for a while. Knowing that, I'll skip the reminder PM which I usually send when a player misses a week.

Now for the results. Once again, we didn't have any outstandings records, but overall it's a decent result for the prediction league. All 28 participants attained a positive record and it just so happened that everyone qualified for a top 3 finish. 28 people beats the previous season-high of 22 and it's very improbable that this mark will be topped, because players who have dropped out usually don't return. NinjaBlade360 was the only one to be perfect on MNF, but that was enough to put an end to the drought that lasted for two weeks for the entirety of the prediction league.

Obviously, the above close results mean that we have only minor shifts in the standings, so I'll talk about the monthly movement because week 7 concluded October. I'll list all people who either gained or lost 3+ ranks over the course of the last four weeks, meaning the points of comparison are the standings of week 3 and week 7. But beforehand, a special mention for the people at the top who are naturally excluded from such statistics. castor extended his lead by one game (dongo8 was #2 a month ago), amp316 actually performed better than castor this month (trailed by three games a month ago) and TheGoldenBoy still maintains his clean streak of top 3 finishes.

Players who gained 3+ ranks in October: Miguel_Zorro (up 7, from #17 to #10), WiiStation360 (up 10, from #21 to #11), NobleTeam360 (up 7, from #20 to #13), BlowoverKing (up 5, from #19 to #14), arcane_chaos (up 7, from #23 to #16), RolStoppable (up 3, from #24 to #21).

Players who lost 3+ ranks in October: ljigga (down 7, from #5 to #12), Mendicate Bias (down 6, from #12 to #18), noname2200 (down 7, from #12 to #19), NinjaBlade360 (down 3, from #17 to #20), FatedReality (down 10, from #12 to #22), ReimTime (down 18, from #11 to #29).

Looking ahead, week 8 concludes the first series of 14-game-weeks. The International Series stops in London once again, this time with the amazing matchup between the Lions (1-6) and the Chiefs (2-5). Europe is feeling the love. Thank you, NFL.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I don't know how to feel about that Den-GB game. Manning has not looked like a great QB, he's fallen off big time, but Green Bay has been slowed by much worse defenses than Denver's this year, plus it's IN Denver, so I had to make the Broncos pick. Also, who's Rodgers throwing to? Cause I don't know. Lots of toss ups yet again this week because of the inconsistent play of nearly every NFL team.
