After an impressive and impressive 11-5 week for Jeff, he's now tied for the lead in our picks contest with me. Our new additions from last week, AvengingJM and Dana both got things started right* by getting more games wrong than right. Dana actually tied with our Fearless Leader, John, for the worst (6-10) single week mark of this young season. I'm sure** they'll do better this week. For the prognostication of an actual expert, check out Joel Thorman's picks.

We're only unanimous in five contests this week (because I'm taking the Falcons). Hopefully I'm wrong, but I doubt it (otherwise I would have taken the Chargers). The Saints, Bears, 49ers, Lions and Steelers are all expected to win by the BFTB staff this week. If we only get to be right about one of them, I hope it's the Saints.

The biggest surprises are the amount of love being given to the Dolphins and Browns. Really, guys? They suck. Anyways, let us know in the comments whether you agree or disagree.

*Right in the sense that I'll feel better if they finish behind me at the end of the season.

**I actually doubt they'll do any better.
