Lurch Strong In Otherwise Nubs Week Of Picks

by Chuck Carroll

They’ve done worse, but still … nubs! That’s about the only way to sum up this week’s NFL picks by the Sports Junkies.

Okay, maybe Lurch will be exempt from the said nubbetry courtesy of a 9-5 record.

After the Miami Dolphins fell to the previously winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football, he officially took top honors this week — the second time in three week’s he’s done so.

Picking against his beloved San Francisco 49ers was the difference this week, as everyone else had the Carolina Panthers falling after flying west.

Season leader JP finished in second place this week with an 8-6 record. He matched Lurch pick-for-pick with the exception of the aforementioned San Francisco failure.

Coin-flipping Cakes finished in third with a .500 record of 7-7 while EB’s woeful 6-8 put him in the basement. The latter, who is in second place overall this season, lost ground to JP for the second week in a row — doomed by picking the Dolphins and Houston Texans.
