Chiefs score a lot and Burt rolls

Home teams won seven games.

Favorites won eight games.

What does that mean? It means I had a pretty good week, and almost a great one.

I won eight of 12 games in a tough week, with 10 games having point spreads of four points or less.

It bodes well for the final six weeks -- that's all we have now before the playoffs begin -- to see who are the best teams.

Only 16 entries out of 210 picked more winners than I did.

Each week a maximum of 10 T-shirts are awarded. The first tie-breaker this week, in lieu of the Patriots bye, was Kansas City Chiefs point total. Well, the Chiefs scored 51.

Believe it or not, two entries were above that total -- 68 and 58 ... And they both won.

All of the Week 11 winners had nine or more correct selections and had the Chiefs scoring 31 or more points.
