Alright, to get ahead of things, let's say that any game played outside of the early and late afternoon on Sunday is considered a primetime game. I think in previous years we considered every Saturday game as Primetime, so this definition would keep things in line with that.

Another contingency will be for the points tie-breaker for MNF. I think we can keep the predicted points as only for the originally scheduled MNF, regardless of whether or not a game is rescheduled for Monday or Tuesday because of COVID-19.

However in the event that the original MNF game is canceled, then the points tie-breaker will be applied to whichever game is played last in that week, whether it be SNF, or a game rescheduled to be on Monday or Tuesday. In this instance everyone will be allowed to change their predicted points total (though I guess everyone can do that anyway right now) and if they don't, their original prediction will be used.

Hopefully that makes sense. Any other scenarios people can think of that contingencies will have to be made for?

Broncos/Patriots has been moved to Monday night.

Bills/Titans has been moved to Tuesday and as a consequence, Chiefs/Bills for week 6 has been moved from Thursday to Sunday (unless Bills/Titans is not played this week, in which case it will revert back to Thursday night.)

And there's been a positive test with the Jets, however it has not been a confirmed positive yet. Edit: It was a false positive.

I originally picked the Patriots as my lock pick of the week, however with their game being postponed, I am switching my lock pick to the Seahawks.

I wish I had noticed it sooner so I had more than three games to choose from, but oh well.

Unanimous picks: Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans

Picks we disagree on:
jbeeman85: Atlanta, Arizona, LA Rams, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Dallas, Tennessee
lcfrick: Atlanta, NY Jets, LA Rams, Houston, Indianapolis, Dallas, Buffalo
crunchbird: Carolina, Arizona, LA Rams, Houston, Cleveland, Dallas, Tennessee
MoonKnight1: Carolina, Arizona, Washington, Jacksonville, Cleveland, NY Giants, Buffalo

No lone wolves worked out this week, I missed on the Colts beating the Browns and Howie missed on the Football team and Giants beating the Rams and Cowboys respectively.

With at least 1 (maybe 2) games to go, crunchbird is in the lead with the record of 11-3, nailing every single pick that we didn't agree on. jbeeman85 is 9-5, and Moonknight1 and myself are 7-7

This going to get ultra messy if they keep cancelling games. May want to add a couple open weeks to the end of the year and move the playoff dates out a bit. All the rescheduling already done has used up a ton of team's bye weeks.

100% agreed. At this point the NFL really should just push the entire playoff bracket back by one month to allow two weeks for making up games and then two weeks to create a bubble for playoff teams.

Sure it gives everyone a large bye... but can you imagine the absolute nightmare if there's a positive test the day before a playoff game?

And woe to the folks that play serious Fantasy Football. Going to be a lot of good players being dropped for low end players just to get someone that's actually playing (that is unless you just sacrifice the position for no points that week).

How many people would have believed you if you told them that Adam Gase wouldn't be one of the first two head coaches fired this season?

(Totally posting this with less than 3 minutes left in the Cardinals/Cowboys game... I don't think the Cowboys can overcome a 21 point deficit in that time, but that's why there's an edit button, I suppose.)

jbeeman85 takes the crown for the third time this season, winning the MNF tiebreaker against me with a record of 9-5. Moonknight1 was 8-6 and crunchbird was 7-7. We only disagreed on 5 picks this week, going 5-4 in unanimous, with crunchbird going 1-1 in the only lone wolf picks (missed Texans, got Giants). (jbeeman and I had the same exact picks... I should probably have paid more attention to that when I made my picks, I can't move up in the standings otherwise.) Also this is the third week in a row everyone has nailed their lock pick. Howie hasn't missed one yet and crunchbird hasn't missed since week 1.

Week 6 Standings

Win/Loss

jbeeman85 - 55-22 + 9-5 = 64-27 (70%)
crunchbird - 53-24 + 7-7 = 60-31 (66%)
MoonKnight1 - 51-26 + 8-6 = 59-32 (65%)
lcfrick - 49-28 + 9-5 = 58-33 (64%)

Lock Pick

MoonKnight1 - 6 KC, CHI, IND, SEA, BAL, MIA
crunchbird - 5 IND, BUF, SF, LAR, DAL, MIA
lcfrick - 5 TEN, SF, ARI, BAL, SEA, IND
jbeeman85 - 4 IND, KC, PHI, SEA, LAR, BAL

Prime Time

jbeeman85 - 12-6 + 2-1 = 14-7 (67%)
MoonKnight1 - 11-7 + 2-1 = 13-8 (62%)
lcfrick - 10-8 + 2-1 = 12-9 (57%)
crunchbird - 9-9 + 1-2 = 10-11 (48%)

Weekly Winner

jbeeman85 - 9 (Week 3, Week 4, Week 6)
lcfrick - 5 (Week 2, Week 3 TBL, Week 6 TBL)
MoonKnight1 - 3 (Week 1)
crunchbird - 3 (Week 4)
