Week 4 Prediction Games: Inferior Cow [redundant]

The last bastion of news for NFL Week 4. Watched the games, got the instant reaction, Monday morning QB reaction, read and listened to all the recaps, break downs, opinions, checked the fantasy scores, cursed out the poor fantasy performers, accepted your gambling debts, said hello to your kids and now its time to digest Prediction Contest results. This is the NFL news cycle equivalent to the Late, Late, Late, Late, Late Show staring Scott Disick but my own private little Idaho. So lets see who did better than me this week.

FYI, Haggardninja leads the first prize contest going into the final week ... and have a feeling I jinxed him.

Mityt 1st Mityt 10 At first I was like who? Than I saw him on the #FTM thread and was like cool. Than I found out he was an aggie (lower case a), now I'm like whatever, stay away bicycle loser (L).
renke81 1st renke81 10 I assure you splittling 1st place won't be a hinderance or hurt your pysche.
whobob 1st whobob 10 Oh no, a whobob appearance. Its one of those weeks, I'm sure leaping_larry will appear shortly.
jbrown63 4th jbrown63 8 My favorite practice squad player. What's the odds of making the roster by next week?
leaping_larry 4th leaping_larry 8 Yep, there he is.
nostocksjustbonds 4th nostocksjustbonds 8 I assume he is Giants fan. Shockingly, doesn't even mildly annoy me.
Edggy 4th Edggy 8 ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!! ...!!
mikeinsp 4th mikeinsp 8 Mike with a skunk buster and out of the dumpster. 49erLou is a week away from getting a Mark Sanchez award.

Scoring Explained

Prediction Contest Rules and Guidelines

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.
