Forums - Sports Discussion - The NFL Thread 2020: The Bears still suck - Week 7 results and standings

'Money Badger' lmao. They should cut him for that alone.

The Saints aren't especially good this season.

Obviously no prediction league results today because there's still one game left to be played this week.

ANNOUNCEMENT - Week 5 Results and Standings

View the spreadsheet with all collected data here. Check your own statlines and let me know if there are any mistakes.

Week 5 had few games that were considered toss-ups, so the ensuing records were similar across the board, except for PAOerfulone who managed the feat to be on the wrong side of all five games that were without unanimous picks. Three of the sure wins failed us this week: Kansas City, San Francisco and Buffalo.

In the standings, Chris Hu maintains his lead of two games. Angelus is the biggest winner of the week, up 2 spots. Farsala sees the biggest drop, down 3. Through five weeks, the prediction league has performed on a high level with win percentages above .650 for more than half the participants. The typical mark to reach for the playoffs has been right around .625 (a final record of 160-96), although this will be moot in this year's edition because everyone who keeps playing until the end of the regular season will qualify by default.

Looking ahead to week 6, it gets a lot more challeging again after the two easy weeks we've had recently. Five divisional games are on the schedule and the remaining games provide a few toss-ups as well. The bonus point game will once again not be SNF, because the designated Rams vs. 49ers matchup has lost its luster after Fitzmagic came to town. Instead it will be Chiefs vs. Bills, two teams that both try to bounce back after suffering their first loss this season in week 5.

I had it right in the spreadsheet. I guess it was only a matter of time until my decade-long Carolina/Cardinals mental obstacle slipped through somewhere for good.

Oh, I see. I was surprised by the lack of new posts in this thread, but it turns out there's no Thursday game on the schedule this week.

Bills had to play Tuesday night, so they moved the Bills-Chiefs game to Monday night next week. Also looks like Falcons-Vikings could get moved to Tuesday next week, with Atlanta shutting down facilities after 4 positive tests within their team.

If it wasn't for the laundry list of injuries on Browns team, key players no less, I'd be more confident in my choice. But one thing I'm sure of, analysts got it completely wrong across the board for this game. This isn't a test for the Browns as everyone and their mother is suggesting, this is a test for the Steelers.

May the best team win. This one is personal for me however. Browns haven't won in the Ketchup stadium for over 15 years.

Patriots have another positive test and canceled practice. This is where things get interesting, because they already moved like six games around to reschedule the Broncos/Pats game and gave the teams a week five bye. So now what do they do?

Personally idk why the NFL didn't just build in a few bye weeks for every team during the season that could be swapped around. Like everyone has a bye week after 4, 8, and 12 games or something. There was no real training camp and no preseason, so it also would have helped the players which means better football.

My guess is they either say to hell with it and just play the game, or they delay it again and sometime down the line you're going to have the Pats and Broncos playing some crazy stretch of like 3 games in 2 weeks or something.
