New England Patriots 17 @ New Orleans Saints 38: Prediction Results and Voting

Okay guys, here are this weeks results. 

Once again, you had to get all three correct to be nominated. This week we have four of you who made perfect predictions, some of them lamer than others. Many people were counting on the rushing game to come up big, which didn't really happen and the absence of Reggie Bush really screwed a few people as well. 

And just a note, for the first time this season we have a member, Philinwood, nail the score prediction. As such, I have also included him in the vote even though he didn't get one of his regular predictions correct. I'll let you guys decide. 

Polls are open!
