In a week rife with anticipated NFL matchups, everyone's favorite Soup-er Mom, Wilma McNabb, headed into Week 6 in a first place tie with tennis player James Blake. Both remained hot with their picks, but ultimately it was Blake who took sole possession of the top spot with an impressive 12-2 week, beating out Donovan's mom by one point as she went 11-3.

In other happenings: Bow Wow seems to be pulling himself out of a mini slump as he tied Blake for first place this week. Also, outfielder Jermaine Dye, who may be without a baseball team right now, is establishing himself a home here in this game as he quietly puts up high numbers each week.

Some questions to ponder: Can James Blake hang on to first place? Will Holly and Heather break their loyalty to their significant others' teams? Will Andy Roddick ever recover?

Stay tuned for Week 7!

The rules:

  • Games are picked straight up
  • Poolers pick one lock-of-the-week, indicated by an asterisk*

  • In the event of a tie, pool will extend to postseason
