Week 13 proved to be an exciting time in celebrity pick'em world. The doors have opened a bit as Mama McNabb and James Blake both had a mediocre week, each going 9-7 for 10 overall points. Blake still leads Mama by just one point.

And Bow Wow continues to put up consistent numbers. As the Terror Squad and Fat Joe will tell you, "even L'il Bow Wow is throwin' it up" -- he trails Mama McNabb by just eight points now.

Congratulations to Holly Robinson Peete, who needed these points more so than anyone else, for her top score this week. She's still at the bottom of the barrel in the overall standings, but her winning performance is worth noting. Steve Harris also gets props for being the only person to predict the Bears upset over the Vikes.

Four more weeks left in the regular season and there's still time to gain ground.

Stay tuned to week 14.

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
