2016 NFL Picks Week 9

Another week, another tie! Of the remaining 12 games I finished with my best week at 8-4, to raise my overall percentage by 1 to 53%. Of course my Pick of the Week (Minnesota) lost, so I wouldn't take my recommendations on that. Once again I went against my "rule" of never picking an away team or a division game. Oops. Now 5-3 for the season. To make things worse I was incorrect in both my upset picks, which drops me to 9-15 (probably my worst mark to date).

Aside from the aforementioned tie between Cincinnati and Washington in London, my losses included Detroit at Houston (upset pick), Seattle at New Orleans, Arizona at Carolina (upset pick), and Minnesota at Chicago. Looks like I should have went with the home teams!
