John,

Good questions. They changed the rule about requiring PAT kicks with no time remaining when it wouldn't change the outcome. Teams no longer have the option to kick it. It has to do with gambling. The NFL doesn't want any controversy related to gambling (code phrase: integrity of the game), so they take the decision out of the hands of the team.

If there had been 1 second left on the clock they would have kicked the PAT, and then kicked off afterwards.

Changing my lock of the week. I'm going with the Over 41.5 in the Chargers / Broncos game.

Mean Mark................Season's Greetings!

Please give your thoughts on why the Titans did not or could not convert the game ending pick 6 last week . If the point would have won the game or tied the game most certainly there would have been a try. Or if there was one tick left on the game clock , would they have then kicked?
Over to you sir.

wow, just wanted to vent. Picking here for 14 seasons and it's been like 6 years since I forgot to do my picks. Yesterday I put in the two Saturday games and meant to do the Sunday games today. Got busy with the fantasydraft final (
https://www.fantasydraft.com/contest/1161353/) and forgot my picks, so got stuck with home teams, my default. I got stuck with 4 home teams ATS when I wanted the road teams (Jacksonville, GB, ATL, MIN). Naturally all those 4 went the way of the road teams and I cost myself a full four games.

Maybe add a few wrinkles. Like Blowout of the Year. Team favored by less than 7 that wins by 20 or more. Parlay of the year: three picks in one week, all have to cover. Stuff like that.
Mean Mark12/22/18 4:27:05PM ET
Something to think about for next year if we do this again. I'm thinking of adding more upset picks. I think these are fun. I'm thinking 1 upset pick for each quarter of the season, weeks 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16, use them or lose them each quarter.

In a couple weeks we'll be making our Superbowl bonus picks. Start thinking about it now. We'll make these picks along with our regular picks for wildcard week after the seedings are finalized and *before* kickoff of the first wildcard game. The way this works is you pick the eventual straight up Superbowl winner. If you get it right you get a bonus win added to your record. If you miss, no big deal, no loss. Team you pick has to win straight up, not against the spread. You have to make your pick before the first wildcard game kicks off even if the team you want wasn't involved in that game.
