Arrgh. Like my fave NFL team, too little and way too late to defend my prognostication title. That title is going to Arizona unless Eli has a horribly bad week 17 and Mike conversely has a monster good one.

After 256 regular season NFL games, our season long prognostication battle between defending 2012 champion moi, rookie Eli Blake, and 2011 co-champ Mike Watts has been decided.
Our champion for the 2013.NFL season is Eli, but not before Mike had that monster week I talked about..
While I closed with a 23-9 late season sprint and had an excellent Week 17, had too much of a hole to climb out of. Mike also went 23-9 in the last two weeks and won this week with a stellar 14-2 record while Eli was 21-11 to give Mike a shot at overtaking him.
If Mike had gotten the Miami-NY Jets and Minnesota-Detroit games right, he would have had a perfect week and taken the title. Congrats to Eli, our 2013 NFL prognostication champ and Mike for another fantastic finishing kick that came up just short.
I know I want to do this again next season, and if any of you other bloggers want in on this prognostication battle, let me know before August 2014
Week 17 Results
Eli Blake 13-3
Mike Watts 14-2
