Week 14 was another solid week for the Cincy Jungle staff, as every member of the team managed to go .500 or better for what seems like the fourth or fifth straight week. Unfortunately for Anthony’s competition, however, only Scott — who won Week 14 with a 13-3 record — managed to draw even a game closer to the current leader of our picks competition.
Things could change this week, however, for better or for worse. Anthony is sticking with the Bengals against the Steelers while Scott and Jason are taking Pittsburgh. A Bengals win would do wonders for first-place Anthony, while a Steelers win could give Scott a chance to pull within striking distance of the picks leader.

The picks seem to be all over the board this week, with discrepancies in almost every game. Surprisingly, however, no one felt confident enough in the Broncos to pick them over the Patriots in what could’ve been a hero pick.
Speaking of hero picks, there are four of them this week. Per usual, I took the Browns, while Patrick (Titans) and Alberto (Rams and Jaguars) also stand alone in hopes that their picks can come to fruition.
Despite not picking for the first two weeks of the season, Dadio is only five games back on Alberto and myself, which will probably make for a competitive win percentage at the end of the season (which I will eventually calculate once the season is over). Kyle, meanwhile, is two wins ahead of Alberto and myself despite not being able to make picks on a few occasions throughout the season.
All in all, the discrepancies in the picks make for what should be an exciting slate of games in Week 15. The Bengals, of course, play the Steelers, the Browns square up with the Bills and the Ravens face the Eagles. Other games to look out for are Titans-Chiefs, Raiders-Chargers, Buccaneers-Cowboys, Panthers-Redskins and, of course, Patriots-Broncos, all of which should be competitive matchups.
