I did terrible. Must be PMS.

I ended up 11-3, which is my second best showing (I actually went 13-3 back in week 3!).

And I think it's perfectly acceptable to blame anything on PMS, including a bad week of football picks! ;-)

Argg! I just realized I forgot to put in my pick for Tampa Bay/Kansas City.  If I don't include them, I only got 2 wrong - my best week ever.   But since I forgot to pick one, I guess that's 3 wrong.... still my best week though.

Naw, if you didn't pick at all it can't be "wrong" so I'd say you got only 2 wrong. A fine week indeed! :-)
