So I didn’t post our weekly results under the “Cold Hard Fails” name last week. This was mainly due to the fact that Matty D went 9-3 and I went 8-4, but as Matt told me, there were still failures. Nothing but perfection is acceptable in the Thunderdome, no exceptions.
Coming into the week, this is how we stood:
Matty D: 26-12
Matty D leads the Weekly Battles: 2-0-1
Vikings downed the Redskins 34-27: We both picked the Skins; 0-1/0-1
Seahawks beat the Falcons 33-10: We both picked Seattle; 1-1/1-1
Lions over the Bears 21-19: We both picked the Lions; 2-1/2-1
Eagles over the Packers 27-13: We both picked the Birds; 3-1/3-1
Jaguars finally win one over the Titans 29-17: We both picked the Titans; 3-2/3-2
Rams surprise everyone by crushing the Colts 38-8: We both picked the Colts; 3-3/3-3
Giants beat the Raiders 24-20: Matt went against the family and picked the Giants while I picked Oakland; 4-3/3-4
Steelers over the Bills 23-10: I picked the Steelers while Matt picked the Bills; 4-4/4-4
The Bengals sent it to OT on a Hail Mary but fell to the Ravens 20-17: We both picked Cincy; 4-5/4-5
The Panthers edge out the Niners 10-9: Matty D picked Carolina while I picked San Fran; 5-5/4-6
Cardinals beat the Texans 27-24: We both picked Houston to snap their losing streak; 5-6/4-7
Demaryius Thomas’ 3 TDs carries the Broncos over the Chargers 28-20 (as well as my Fantasy Team over Dr. Dangerous Dan): We both picked Denver; 6-6/5-7
The Saints dominated the Cowboys 49-17: We both knew better than to go against the Saints in the Superdome; 7-6/6-7
The Bucs held off the Phins by picking off Ryan Tannehill late to win their first game 22-19: I picked Miami while Matty D picked the Bucs; Matty D wins the week 8-6 to 6-8
Matty D: 34-18

Well this week really lived up to the “Cold Hard Fails” name. And now I’m four games back, eh huh huh huh. At least I moved back into first this week in Fantasy. Next week will better, both for our picks (featuring a new Picker…) AND there are some great games to be played. You’ll hear all about for Matty D on Thursday for Week 11’s Cold Hard Locks.
