Sorry Bengal fans!  My #1 has lost the next week every time this year.  Prove me right!  Also, teams 9 through 20 are not easy to slot...you try it!

1.) Cincinnati (3-0) – Typical Bengals, takes a bye to reach the top (+1)
2.) Seattle (2-1) – How long until their #1 again? (+1)
3.) Arizona (3-0) – Palmer set-back…more Stanton! (+1)
4.) Denver (2-1) – They’re just fine, just like last week (+1)
5.) Philadelphia (3-1) – 21-points, but none by the offense.  Yikes!(-4)
6.) San Diego Chargers (3-1) – They beat Jacksonville, can’t move up for that (-)
7.) Detroit (3-1) – How about that defense? May be the team to beat in the NFC North (+1)
8.) Baltimore Ravens (3-1) – Under the radar AFC Super Bowl pick right now (+2)
9.) Houston Texans (3-1) – Giants loss looks better…they may have something (+4)
10.) Dallas Cowboys (3-1) – That Saints win shut a lot of people up! (+5)
11.) Indianapolis (2-2) – At least one of my Super Bowl Picks is going to be ok (+6)
12.) Green Bay (2-2) – Up 8 spots is over reacting to one game…but who’s better? (+8)
13.) San Francisco (2-2) – They win and people still hate their coach.  Not good… (+6)
14.) Carolina (2-2) – No running backs and an injured Cam Newton = bad (-5)
15.) Kansas City Chiefs (2-2) – So much for the slow start…they look GOOD! (+6)
16.) Atlanta (2-2) – Good at home, bad on the road. SEE: Dome Team (-5)
17.) Chicago Bears (2-2) – Poor Cutler…said no one ever. (-5)
18.) New England Patriots (2-2) – Hard slotting them…but they looked terrible (-11)
19.) Buffalo (2-2) – Welcome back Kyle Orton! (-5)
20.) Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2) – Did that really happen? Really? Tampa Bay? (-4)
21.) New York Giants (2-2) – Just like Kansas City…slow start means nothing now (+6)
22.) New Orleans (1-3) – It’s all about the Saints, ‘bout the Saints, they’re in trouble! (-4)
23.) Miami (2-2) – Beating Oakland gets you nothing in my book (-)
24.) Minnesota Vikings (2-2) – Teddy time!  If he plays…(+4)
25.) Cleveland Browns (1-2) – They will win some games…key word, some (-)
26.) Tampa Bucs (1-3) – Don’t call it a comeback…well, actually, that’s what it was (+5)
27.) Washington (1-3) – Got it…Kirk Cousins isn’t the new “Football Jesus…” YET! (-5)
28.) St. Louis (1-2) – Austin Davis the starter for the rest of the season…OK (-)
29.) Tennessee Titans (1-3) – As I said the last 2 weeks now…so much for week 1 (-5)
30.) New York Jets (1-3) – Just like last week, last place in the AFC East & NFC North (0-3) (-4)
T-32.) Jacksonville (0-4) – An ok start for Bortles… (-)
T-32.) Oakland Raiders (0-4) – Welcome back to the sideline Head Coach Rocky Rococo (-2)

Our NASCAR Pick 3 has reached the Chase of the Championship!  Scuba’s Bar and Grill in Appleton is on board this season challenging you to beat the experts!

Every week, on WSCO, Alex Hayden of MRN Radio & Ben Brust of the Badgers join Justin Hull to talk NASCAR.  At the end the conversation, one listener will be chosen to call in and pick 3 drivers for the Sprint Cup Race that weekend.  After that, our expert panel of Alex, Ben, Justin and Justin’s Dad will pick their 3 for the race.

It’s golf style scoring so the lower the scorer, the better.  You get points for whatever position each of your drivers finish.  If you pick the winning driver, we subtract 5-points from your total.  If the listener beats 3 of 4 or sweeps the panel, it’s a $25 Gift Card to Scuba’s.  If you beat just one, it’s a $10 Gift Card to Scuba’s.
