Steelers @ Saints: Prediction Results and Voting

Everyone’s predictions from last week have finally been tallied, analyzed and formatted accordingly. They can be found in their entirety following the jump. 

This week we had nobody get all three of their predictions correct. Quite a few other people got two out of three guesses correct so I put them all on the ballot and you guys can decide. 

Look over the results then go ahead and cast your vote for the best predictor. The poll will be open for 48 hours, closing Friday afternoon at 12pm.
