The Gridiron Gentlemen Super Fun Prediction League: Week 16

It’s the penultimate week of the regular season so, in true Christmas Panto season style – boooooo!

Also in try Christmas Panto style – James, he’s behind you!

Actually, thanks to a strong week that saw three of the chasing pack go 13-3, he’s actually in front of you now. “He” being Dave. With two weeks left and things tightening up, it’s closer than a video review of that Beckham dro… catch. The scores on the doors are:

Dave: 130-80

James: 129-81

Dan: 128-82

Simon: 126-84

Duncan: 124-86

Week 16 poses a few tricky match ups that could make a big difference this late in the season. So how did we all pick?

New York Giants @ Philadelphia Eagles

The Giants looking to keep their Play Off hopes alive with a road trip to Philadelphia.
