The Gridiron Gentlemen Super Fun Prediction League: Week 17

by | December 30th 2016

So this is it. Week 17 already (sob) and the season is almost done. Well, aside from the best part of the season of course which is the Play Offs!

James regained his lead last week, but only just. With several picks going in different directions, it really does all come down to this.

Heading in to the final week, this is how the leaderboard stands:

James: 139-87

Dan: 138-86

Dave: 136-90

Duncan: 135-91

Simon: 133-93

So here we go. Can James hang on? Can Dan overtake him at the death? Can I finally manage to get some right? Are we taking this too seriously? (The answer is yes to that one!)

New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins

Not quite the game Miami will have wanted to finish the season with…
