Atlanta Falcons 27 @ New Orleans Saints 35: Prediction Results and Voting

I told you guys last week that our prediction contest is getting tougher and that it would take three correct predictions to win. Turns out my prediction was correct as well. This week we have two members who went 3/3 - including another CSC writer - and one member who is borderline. All three have been nominated, I will let you decide. 

A lot of people were banking on Reggie to come up big but it just didn't happen. As per usual, nobody correctly guessed the final score but cptbags got damn close with a guess of 34-27 Saints. 

The polls are now open.
