Saints vs. Vikings Prediction Results and Voting

New, comments

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

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

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

Once again, we didn't have anyone get all three of their predictions correct. So our winner will need to be determined by popular vote because this week we've got a crowded race between five 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!
