UPDATE, 1:45 p.m.: A wild start to the season. Three 'dogs have prevailed, but our players picked only one of them: Pittsburgh, winner in the dying seconds of overtime. JC, Howler, and Mojo each pick up 6.5 points. On to the Sunday p.m. games.

UPDATE, 5:20 p.m.: The Jersey G-Men prevail, sending 5.5 points the way of one of our new players, Linda. None of our pickers are on the Sunday night game, but we have four peeps riding on the Seachickens tomorrow evening.
