Move over, Elion245 and Leesters. Time to make room on the Wall of Fame for habitat730, who predicted the Cardinals' 34-10 victory over the Rams in the "You called it" for Week 14.

Sixty-one people predicted at least one NFC West outcome correctly. Of those, only habitat730 predicted the score exactly. The updated WOF:

  • Elion245. Forecast the Redskins' 20-17 victory over the Seahawks in Week 12.
  • Leesters. Forecast the Bears' 27-3 victory over the Rams in Week 12.
  • habitat730. Forecast the Cardinals' 34-10 victory over the Rams in We 12.

We had a few close calls this week. Digitool predicted a 23-21 victory for the Patriots over the Seahawks (24-21 actual score). Gamos34 predicted a 24-13 victory for the 49ers over the Jets (24-14 actual score).

Twenty-five people predicted all three outcomes involving NFC West teams. Of those, gamos34 came closest on average to hitting all three scores. Gamos34's predictions: Cardinals 31-10, Patriots 27-17, 49ers 24-13. That equated to missing each score by an average of 3.7 points per game. Well done.

Guardian hawk came within five points per game: Cardinals 31-10, Patriots 24-13, 49ers 21-13. TheRooster58 came within 5.7 points per game (Cardinals 34-13, Patriots 23-17, 49ers 27-20) before crowing about it in the comments section: "wow, aside from the seattle game, I'd say i did pretty good."

Six people came within three points of hitting the Rams-Cardinals score. Gamer929 was one of them. "If Josh Brown didn't miss that field goal," Gamer929 wrote, "I would have been right on with the Cards Rams game. I will hate him even more, leave Seattle, now this?"

Thanks for playing. We'll start taking predictions for Week 15 later in the week.

The fine print: Those submitting predictions must pick the winner correctly for their scores to be considered. Scoring is easy to calculate. The difference between a 20-17 prediction and a 31-14 outcome would be 14 points. We would calculate this by adding the difference between 20 and 31 to the difference between 17 and 14.
