Saints vs. Browns Prediction Results and Voting

New, comments

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

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

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

As you could imagine after an unexpected loss, we had no members go a perfect three for three this week. So our winner will need to be determined by popular vote because this week we've got a very crowded race between nine members with two correct predictions each. 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!
