Arrow Contest: Pick the Games 2017!

It's that time again...Let's play the annual Pick the Games Contest!

This is where we express our preseason optimism / pessimism about the coming season by picking all of the games in advance.

You make the picks, I'll enter them and track them throughout the regular season. To see what it looks like, check out last years results with repeating champ Chuck Cunningham correctly predicting 13 of the 16 games.

Here's the list: Copy and paste the list into a post, put a W or L next to the games, and answer the tiebreaker questions.

Week 1: Arizona at Detroit
Week 2: Detroit at NY Giants (MNF)
Week 3: Atlanta at Detroit (Forum Game)
Week 4: Detroit at Minnesota
Week 5: Carolina at Detroit
Week 6: Detroit at New Orleans
Week 8: Pittsburgh at Detroit (SNF)
Week 9: Detroit at Green Bay (MNF)
Week 10: Cleveland at Detroit
Week 11: Detroit at Chicago
Week 12: Minnesota at Detroit (T-Day)
Week 13: Detroit at Baltimore
Week 14: Detroit at Tampa Bay
Week 15: Chicago at Detroit
Week 16: Detroit at Cincinatti
Week 17: Green Bay at Detroit

Tiebreaker questions:
Will the Lions make the playoffs? (Y or N)
Where will the Lions place in the division? (1-4)
Lions Rushing Ranking at the end of regular season: (1-32)

The winner is the player who correctly picks the most games. In the event of a tie, we'll use the three questions as a tiebreaker, in order.

You have until kickoff of the first Regular Season game (9/10 1:00 pm) to submit or revise your picks. If you make a revision, add it in a separate post to call it out, do not edit your original post.

Alrighty then, extend your index finger, and Pick!

Here's the start of the sheet. It's always a good idea to double-check my entries, transposition errors happen.

Keep 'em coming...

Week 3: W , Atlanta at Detroit (Forum Game) "Dirty Souf Punched in Mouf"
Week 4: W , Detroit at Minnesota, "Purple Helmets Skol F**d"
Week 5: L , Carolina at Detroit, "Our Riots are Better than Yours"
Week 6: L , Detroit at New Orleans, "Showed our Kitties, Where's Our Beads?"
Week 8: L , Pittsburgh at Detroit (SNF), "Another Non-Consensual Assault"

A lot of people picking Detroit to beat Arizona, Arizona scores a lot of points against good defenses.
