It must have been a game of predictable finishes this week as six contestants (two celebrity picks included) held a perfect score with the tie-breaker resolving the top three prize winners. This week's NFL game between Atlanta and Arizona was the tie-break game with the total score tallying 40 points. Sal Jauregui and Patricia Ketron each were two away from the score of 40 but the lower score breaks the second tie-breaker crowning Sal this week's champion! Kris McGill was third place and in the prizes.
