Finally! A rare sun-dappled week in a season of gloom for us, with the 13-3 overall mark and 10-6 against the spread both shining brightly. Included was a bull's-eye on our Upset of the Week with Seahawks over Eagles ("Aawwk!") as well as two other direct hits on minor upsets by the Cowboys and Dolphins. For the year we are poised to leap up over the Mendoza line of .600 straight-up, but there's still much work left to avoid our worst season ever ATS, which was .449 in 2006. Time to finish like Lionel Messi in a penalty box. (Note: Thursday night pick was Falcons (+1 1/2) over Saints, 34-30).
