    How can Collinsworth’s denominator be the same as everyone else’s? He’s abstained from picking on all 8 Sunday night games! So either he’s 78 out of 111 (70.3% if you’ve been counting how many correct guesses each panelist has), or 70 out of 111 (63.1%, if you’ve been counting how many incorrect guesses each panelist has).

    • Sheldon

      I noticed the same thing. Sloppy math.

    • NAJ

      Or they’ve probably just given him a non entry zero for those games and deservedly so if you avoid picking a team…quite simple really, not sloppy maths at all

      • anon76returns

        Not sure if you’re being serious or not, but having a guy broadcast a game after publicly declaring a rooting interest would be a pretty substantial breach of ethics.

        • NAJ

          Picking who he thinks will win isn’t a breach of ethics. It’s not like he’s betting on and cheering on the teams.

          • anon76returns

            It actually is betting, just not for money, as the PFF crew are holding a contest for who has the best prediction record. If you can’t see that it would be a conflict of interest, then I guess there’s just not much I can say to you.

    So the Power rankings like the Panthers a lot but they get picked to lose at home against the Packers -.- their offense has looked shaky even at home sometimes this season.

    • Win Morrison

      The best team doesn’t always win. Or else Every super bowl champion would end the season 18-0. or is it 19-0. Either way you get the point. Sometimes the lesser team WINS

  • crosseyedlemon

    I would have thought the Raiders would get a bit more support here. They have some momentum going now with a couple of solid wins the last being against a good Jets team. Steeler’s can’t seem to play a game without losing a key player.
