Saints vs. Falcons Prediction Results and Voting

New, comments

The results of our Saints vs. Falcons prediction contest are in and we've got ourselves a two horse race to the finish line, both members getting all three of their predictions correct. Which means our winner this week will need to be chosen by you, the community!

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone's predictions made this past Friday about the Saints vs. Falcons game have finally been tallied, analyzed and formatted accordingly. They can be found in their entirety below.

Our winner will need to be determined by popular vote because this week we had two members get all three predictions correct. You, the community, will need to decide whose two predictions were best. Only one can win.

Look over the entire results below and feel free to tell me all the ways in which I've screwed up the scoring. Then vote in the poll below. Voting will be open for 48 hours.

We'll see you on Friday to announce the winner and another chance to play!
