Nailed It! Week 14 Edition

By
Updated: December 14, 2012

NailedItNetworkingIt was not one of the best weeks for our prognosticators. Several games did not play out as we thought, but still more names were added to the Pantheon.  Read on to find out exactly just who Nailed It!

Final score

These are the people who have (somehow) correctly predicted the final outcome of a game. The only shot that was called that could be considered more famous than these belongs to . Bow down before their wisdom! (And make sure you ask them for next week’s lotto numbers.)

  • None this week.

Scoring differential

These are the ones who correctly predicted the margin by which the victors would best their competition.  These are also the ones to consult if you want to bet the spread.

  • Week 14: St Louis @ Buffalo - BearsSaveLives correctly predicted a three point victory for the Rams.

Total combined score

These are those who somehow managed to pick the correct total score but did not have any clue in how the teams would actually get there. Still, if you want to bet an over/under, you could do worse than consulting with them.

  • Week 14: Philadelphia @ Tampa Bay - jwoude23 correctly predicted both teams would combine for 44 points.

Winning team’s score

  • Week 14: Dallas @ Cincinnati - MIBearFan correctly predicted that the Cowboys would score 20 points in a victory.
  • Week 14: Tennessee @ IndianapolisGabes22 correctly predicted that the Colts would score 27 points in a victory.
  • Week 14: Miami @ San Francisco - NonstopdrivelGabes22, and niemerg1 correctly predicted that the 49ers would score 27 points in a victory.

In Week 14, our hapless prognosticators Nailed It about as well as this tattoo artist.

Against the grain

Oftentimes, our picks will be unanimous. However, there are those who will sometimes walk their own path.

  • Week 14: New York Jets @ Jacksonville - MIBearFan was the only one (out of six) who predicted the Jets would defeat the mighty Jaguars.

Wrap-up

Fourteen weeks down, and only three more to go. The Pantheon has continued to grow steadily with another eight names added this week. Remember, if you would like to read about those who have made correct predictions in the past (or simply revel in your past greatness), you may find them in our Pantheon.  In the meantime, let’s give a little congratulatory clap to those who are listed in this article. Or not. Your choice.

If you would like to have your name forever enshrined in the vast expanse that is the internet, simply call your shot in the comment section below for the games of the NFC North and the NFC South (or, as is the cool thing now, every NFL game). I will be reviewing the comments, and keeping track as the season goes on.

I’ll ask again if you would like to continue this for the playoffs; leave your comments on that below.

Whenever I think of Clay Matthews III, I think of the CMII song. He's CMIII, he'll steal your bike!

Clay Matthews has 2.5+ Sacks this weekend on Cutler...

Cuntler doesn't finish the game...

Marshall tries to start a fight with the DBs of GB...

Alshon Jeffrey has eats a box of Krispy Kremes before, during, and after the game.

I believe the Packers still do by virtue of division record.

Right, I've SCOOOOOOOOOPED the fuck out of you on that then. If the Packers lose Sunday, they have to beat the Vikings to get in, assuming that all other worst-case scenarios occur within other NFC games relevant to the playoffs.

   If we're looking at just after this week... yes... I was talking long term end of season... I'm going to the playoff predictor.

    They make a team with the best players from both teams and that team goes to the playoffs.

But after this week even if Pack lose they still have the better division record. I think that's what Joe meant--after this week.

    Not if they lose to MN in MN week 17... then division record is tied.  I think at that point it goes to conference record, correct?  Common opponent wouldn't really make a difference... Bears beat Colts, Packers beat Texans.

   GB needs to win week 17 in Minnesota.

    Wouldn't it go to common opponents (They beat Houston)
