    No word from Teufel Hund, so let's go ahead with Week 3's NFL picks, shall we? Same rules as Teufel described for Weeks 1 and 2: 1,000,000 gold to enter, payable after the winner for Week 3 is determined. Losers will buy a book from a vendor at Teufel's house (or mine, if we don't hear from him this week) to fund the prize for the winner(s).

    I see that there are still some "loser" books on Teufel's Joe Flacco vendor for Week 1. If you haven't already cleared up the matter with Teufel, I'm sure the Week 1 winners would appreciate it if you would pay up. This is my own personal opinion; I haven't been in contact with Teufel about it, so please don't anyone be upset if you've already made some kind of special arrangement; I have no idea what my have transpired about those.

    Here are the games for Week 3. Post in this forum by noon Eastern time on Sunday, September 21, with your prediction for the winner of each game. Most number of correct picks wins, and the pot will still be split among tie winners this week. (I think we should wait for Teufel Hund to weigh in on introducing a tie-breaker in future weeks, as some suggested in the NFL Week 2 thread, since this contest was his idea originally.)

    Losers for Week 1 can pay for their bets by buying the book with their name on it at Teufel Hund's house (character Isabeau's house) out of Luna's west gate on the vendor Joe Flacco. No one has been able to pay for Week 2 yet, since people decided we should wait to hear from Teufel about that. So you can pay for Week 1 if you need to (I don't know if you do), and I wouldn't let Week 2's debt prevent you from participating in Week 3, since we're all in that boat, except the Week 2 winner(s).

    Here are the results for Week 3!

    Game results, per NFL.com:

    KC @ ATL: ATL
    OAK @ BUF: BUF
    TB @ CHI: TB
    CAR @ MIN: MIN
    MIA @ NE: MIA
    CIN @ NYG: NYG
    HOU @ TEN: TEN
    ARI @ WAS: WAS
    NO @ DEN: DEN
    DET @ SF: SF
    STL @ SEA: SEA
    CLE @ BAL: BAL
    JAC @ IND: JAC
    PIT @ PHI: PHI
    DAL @ GB: DAL
    NYJ @ SD: SD

    And here are the correct picks, according to my tabulations. Everyone, please check your own and let me know if I've made a mistake:

    Tyrtle: 10 ATL, BUF, NYG, TEN, WAS, DEN, SF, SEA, BAL, PHI,
    Techthys: 11 ATL, BUF, MIN, NYG, TEN, DEN, SF, SEA, BAL, DAL, SD,
    ForTheOcean: 12 ATL, BUF, TB, NYG, TEN, WAS, DEN, SF, BAL, PHI, DAL, SD,
    landon27: 10 ATL, BUF, NYG, TEN, WAS, DEN, SF, BAL, DAL, SD,
    Kahlan_FHP: 10 ATL, MIN, NYG, TEN, SF, SEA, BAL, PHI, DAL, SD,

    We all did pretty well, but ForTheOcean gets the win! :D Congratulations!

    Still no word from Teufel Hund, so I'll set up a vendor at my house tonight for people to come and buy their book for 1,000,000 gold, and I'll pass on the gold to ForTheOcean. My house is just south of Teufel's (Isabeau's), out Luna's west gate and south one screen, as shown in the radar map in my signature below. Look for the vendor "NFL Week 3", or something similar, on the front steps.

    The vendor is ready, for Week 3 participants who need to pay. Thanks in advance for your payment!

    ForTheOcean, I'll send you a PM when the books are gone. I've sent a PM to Teufel about the Week 2 activities, and I think that will serve to get Kahlan's Week 3 payment for you from Kahlan's Week 1 winnings, one way or another.

    I still need to pay my dues for week 2, I'm not sure which vendor I'm supposed to visit, but neither have my name in a book. Sorry for not paying as of yet. I'm trying.

    No worries, Insta. The Week 2 vendor hasn't been set up yet, so no one has paid. It's not counting against you or anything! :)

    I'm afraid I haven't heard anything from Teufel Hund about Weeks 1 and 2 beyond what he's posted publicly. I posted the RESULTS for Week 2 as a public service, but wasn't otherwise involved with Weeks 1 and 2 (other than losing the contests to you and some others!)

    I did post the Week 3 contest without Teufel's input, so I'll take responsibility for Week 3, but you should probably PM Teufel about your winnings for Week 1 and 2.

    Deke Q me tonight and I will get you your coin. I will also set up the vendor for Week 2 payments.

    Kahlan check your PMs

    I stopped by to see the vendors for week 2 but my book wasnt there. I'm assuming that you used my winnings from week one to pay for week 2? So now you just owe me for week 2. I wont be on this evening, my son has football games tonite, and both my daughters have a "mini cheer" during half time. I'll be on today, and I'll check here periodically, so if ya wanna send me a PM we can hook up this afternoon. Or next week sometime if not today.
