Congratulations to Bow Wow with an impressive 14-2 victory in Week 12.

It should be noted that the entire pool had given up on the Oakland Raiders, not one person picked them to beat the Broncos. And in other interesting trends, Heather Mitts, Bow Wow and Steve Harris should be commended for picking the Bills upset over the Seahawks. Though with the way the Hawks have been playing lately maybe that wasn't such a tough pick.

But the real story in the standings, once again, is soup-er mom Wilma McNabb. She trailed tennis player James Blake by two points and was able to gain a point this week by going 12-4, while Blake went 11-5. Can she forge ahead to victory or will she be rebuffed?

Stay tuned to lucky Week 13.

The rules:

  • Games are picked straight up
  • Poolers pick one lock-of-the-week, indicated by an asterisk*
  • Every other game is worth +1 if won and 0 points if lost
  • Lock is worth +2 points if won and -2 points if lost
  • Five points added to overall score for a perfect week
  • In the event of a tie, pool will extend to postseason
