    WEEK #3 UPDATE

    The Colts played very badly in a shutout loss to Jacksonville a week ago. They also needed a late comeback to force a tie in week 1 with Houston. This week’s opponent was perennial Super Bowl contender Kansas City, who was off to 2-0 start. So, it’s not a big surprise that 4 of our players pinned their hopes to the Chiefs in Week #3. Unfortunately for those players, KC fell asleep at the wheel in the second half of a game they mostly controlled and allowed the Colts to sneak back in and steal a 20-17 victory in their home opener.

    On the other hand, I’m not quite sure what the rationale was for the 3 players who lost their spot by taking the 0-2 Las Vegas Raiders in their game at (also 0-2) Tennessee. Neither team has shown well in the early going, and the result seemed like a toss-up at best.

    One player was also eliminated when the Jaguars upset the heavily favored Chargers in LA, and one fell by the wayside for failing to make a pick.

    On the positive side for our players, the defending AFC champion Bengals finally got into the win column in week 3 by thumping the New York Jets, 27-12. Also, the Eagles continued their hot start with an easy 24-8 road victory over Washington.

    Week #3 by the numbers:
    13 players started Week #3
    9 eliminated
    4 advance to Week #4

    Thanks to everyone for participating, and best of luck to our final 4 as they advance to week #4.
