5 + 5 Pick`Em Contest: Week Nine Recap (NFL Picks)

This has to be the best overall session for the 15 participants in the first ever isportsweb “5+5 Pick`Em Contest” as a quartet went a perfect 5 and 0 and another four hit the 4 and 1 mark. The two top contestants (Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad on twitter) & Scott (@ScottPeceny on twitter)) both went perfect, moving ahead of the rest of the pack, while three participants move into the group of .500+ mark. Those seven players went a combined of 29 and 6 (.828) for this session. But enough of me talking, check how they all did in this session…
