Here we sit with one week left in the Science Blog NFL Challenge and suddenly things look interesting. Much like her beloved Vikings, DGT was stumbled in the last few weeks, looking vulnerable at the wrong time of the season. Could it be that she is feeling the strain of the long season? Hard to say. But what is not hard to say is that having built a lead that looked unsurmountable a couple of weeks ago, DGT has tumbled within striking distance.
One week remains and DGT is clinging to a 1 point lead, with Nat smelling blood. Somehow I've managed to stop the bleeding and put together a solid three week stretch to pull into third place, 4 points off the lead. As your week 16 winner, all I can say is that I have my eye on the prize and not the minor victories. Trailing two point behind me is a logjam of Chall, Alyssa, PiT and last week's winner (sorry for the delayed gratification), Candid Engineer. Odyssey and Genomic Repairman are three points behind the traffic and 6 points behind them is Tom trying to drive with the "check engine" light on.
Will there be a massive upset next week or will DGT find her mojo and bury us all? Could she be toying with us just keep it interesting? The thrilling conclusion* next week....
*And the final end to these posts for those of you who have no idea what I keep going on about.
