Saints vs. Cardinals: Prediction Results and Voting

New, comments

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

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone's predictions made this past Friday about the Saints vs. Cardinals 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 three members get two of their three predictions correct. You, the community, will need to decide whose 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.

We'll see you Friday for another chance to play!
