Week 12 Prediction Games: Be embarrased. You've been groug'ed.

Week 12 seemed like forever. My last recap felt like 3 weeks ago. Preliminary response, I like the option week, it was very good to me. Any time I can trade what is the excuse now Smith for predictable Tebow, I like my chances. Now if Fooch would stop including the Titans and Bengals in every weeks game card manraj7 would actually have to predict.

We do have an impressive winner this week, groug, who submitted an outstanding 38-20 perfect score in the Pats @ Iggles game. Word has it Curtis Painter is very inspired by this. He and the Colts may just rise up as 22 1/2 point underdogs to defeat the Patriots this week. For god sakes it better be in prediction contest cause there is zero chance the game score will be anywhere near a 24-17 final. I digress, it's stretch run time. Playoff focus begins in the recap next week.

Scoring Explained

Your prediction has these same three components as the actual game score.

1) If you predict the correct winner for an individual game, we will score your prediction against the actual game. If you predict the incorrect winner for an individual game, your prediction will not be scored.

2) Ideally, you will predict the exact point differential of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 45. If you predict a score with a PD of 45, the difference between your predicted PD and the actual PD is 0 (45 - 45 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

3) Ideally, you will predict the exact point total of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 65. If you predict a score with a PT of 65, the difference between your predicted PT and the actual PT is 0 (65 - 65 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

So, assuming that you predict the correct winner of the individual game, we simply add the difference between your predicted and the actual PD to the difference between your predicted and the actual PT. The closer this total is to zero, the better your prediction is. A zero exactly will always be a perfect prediction.

pPD = Predicted Point Differential
aPD = Actual Point Differential
pPT = Predicted Point Total
aPT = Actual Point Total
x = Subscore

|pPD - aPD| + |pPT - aPT| = x

That total becomes your subscore for each individual game. These subscores are then ranked, and the five best (including ALL ties) are awarded points. Perfect predictions are awarded 10 points. If the highest subscore for a particular game is not a perfect prediction, it is awarded 5 points. Points then follow in descending order, so that all of the second best predictions get 4 points, the third best all get 3 points, and so on.
