Lori McGill was the winner of our Pigskin Picks week nine as the second person this season to nail all 10 games. The tie-breaker score this week was 64 points between the Broncos and Patriots game and Lori's guess was 55. Lynn Ruble nabbed second place also missing zero games but because of her tie-breaker guess of 46 points she was just behind Lori. In third place was Todd McGill who missed just one game and was closest to the tie-breaker score with 63. In the overall standings (winner for the season gets three months free subscription to the DDD),
