Can you go 10 for 10?
Three Thursday games! All we had to do was build this great nation of ours over 500-plus years and we reap the rewards of a Thanksgiving Day triple-header! Even the worst game, on paper, features two teams sporting three-game winning streaks. Great planning, founding fathers, I must say.
The bye weeks are over, and 16 games a weekend are here to stay. 10-for-10 rolls into the home stretch, and with the Cowboys playing on Thursday we'll have to adjust the rules a bit. You still must select a winner for the Dallas game, and you are free to also include the other two Thursday tilts but those aren't a requirement. If you feel comfortable enough to pick all 10 games before Thursday's kickoff, feel free. If you would like to pick one to three of the games now, and save the rest for later you can do that as well.
If you fail to pick the Dallas game and still want to enter the contest at a later date, then you will only be eligible for 9 for 10. If
losing a playoff game missing a pick is the worst thing to ever happen to you...
We had several folks go 9 for 10 in Week 11, 19 in fact. The funny thing that shows to true nature of how difficult it proves to be is that those 19 people missed a pick across seven different games. Check out hookerhome's awesome recurring weekly summary to sift through the details.

|BishopWest||2010||Reigning Season Champ|
We have a tie atop the leaderboard folks, and 10 people within four correct picks of each other.
Follow the jump for the contest. Pay special attention to the contest rules on how to conduct yourself with the THURSDAY GAME monkey wrench.
1 - You must only pick 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first 10. If you pick less than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.
ii) You must make your entry as a reply to the post, not another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.
B: You must include the entire matchup in your entry. Simply BOLD the team in the matchup you are picking to win. No lists of only the winners you pick. If you want me to take the time to score your entry, take the time to format it correctly. It's easy, just copy and paste the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick and hit the B button.
3. YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. New rule for 2011 and front page status.
D - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it- there's no turning back.
D v2.0 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff. No exceptions. If you're including Thursday night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's game, post 'THURSDAY GAME(S) ONLY' in your subject line.
