Week #4 saw some close games, great comebacks, and wild finishes. The biggest upset of the week, again involving the St. Louis Rams, who went on the road to defeat their division rival Arizona Cardinals, actually had no bearing on our pool at all, as none of our players had a pick on that game.
A fumble 6 inches from the goal line and a subsequent blown officiating call kept the Detroit Lions from upsetting the defending NFC Champion Seahawks on Monday night, which WOULD HAVE had a major effect on the pool, with 3 of our remaining players having picked Seattle.
But in the end only 1 player was eliminated when the Washington Redskins scored a late TD to upset the Philadelphia Eagles 23-20.
Week #4 by the numbers:
6 players began Week #4
1 eliminated (lost on Philadelphia)
5 advance to Week #5
