Colts 7 @ Saints 62: Prediction Results and Voting

Everyone's predictions about the Colts @ Saints game from this past Friday have finally been tallied, analyzed and formatted accordingly. They can be found in their entirety following the jump.

This week we had a few people go a perfect three for three with predictions that ranged from impressive to lame. As usual, it's up to you guys to choose our winner.

But I have to first announce our unofficial winner, my podcast co-host Kevin Held from HakimDropstheBall.com, who predicted on our show last week that the Saints would run the ball more than pass against the Colts. I was so sure that would never happen, I promised I would declare him our automatic winner. Turns out, I was wrong. Here's to you, Kevin. 

Look over the results then go ahead and cast your vote for the best predictor. The poll will be open for 48 hours, closing Friday afternoon at 11am.
