Minnesota Vikings 9 @ New Orleans Saints 14: Prediction Results and Voting

Finally carved out enough time to compute everyones predictions from last week. Man, there were a lot!

With everyone expecting a high-scoring shootout between the two teams you can imagine that most predictions weren't very close. Brees only throwing one touchdown and not hitting the 250-yard mark really screwed up a lot of people. Bush not scoring or hitting 100-yards all purpose did as well. That means two correct guesses got your name on the final ballot and only four members actually accomplished that feat. Score predictions weren't close either so I don't know how the heck you're gonna decide who deserves the honor. 

Look over the results then go ahead and cast your vote for the best predictor. The poll will be open until Thursday morning at 6am.
