The Saturday underdog post

A thrill of hope.

Players in our charity underdog game, take note: If you want either of the Saturday games as your main pick or backup pick this week, all of your selections for the week must be in to by the start of your earliest game. The Satur-'dogs are:

12  LOS ANGELES CHARGERS vs. Buffalo (Saturday, 5:00 p.m. PST)

2.5  PITTSBURGH vs. Cincinnati (Saturday, 1:30 p.m. PST)

Our latest standings are here. No points were scored last week.

I'll update this post later today (as festivities permit) to note picks and results.

UPDATE, 1:55 p.m.: Nobody went with the Steelers. Maybe it's an "America first" thing.

UPDATE, 6:30 p.m.: Pittsburgh won, convincingly. In the nightcap, nobody's got the Chargers.

UPDATE, 10:15 p.m.: It was close, but the Chargers did not prevail.
