Through the first three weeks, Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley has led the way (34-14), despite a mediocre 9-7 last week. The rookie “Mischievious” McCumber is right behind B Hyphen, going 31-17 through the first three weeks. Thomas “Nocturne” Deja has been the model of consistency of the group, going 10-6 all three weeks. The defending champion, Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti (28-20 through 3 weeks) hasn’t been able to emulate last season’s success, as he sits in fourth place. Anthony “Triple S” Sellers has been the dullest tool in the GoG shed, however, only carving out a 27-21 record through the first three weeks. Can Asti mount a comeback to repeat as champion? Can “Triple S” transform into the proverbial gridiron Einstein? Can Hyphen stay atop the group?
Conley 34-14 (9-7 week 3)
McCumber 31-17 (8-8 week 3)
Deja 30-18 (10-6 week 3)
Asti 28-20 (7-9 week 3)
Sellers 27-21 (7-9 week 3)

The Standout Games
Baltimore @ Buffalo
The rookie Mischievious “quoth the Raven, nevermore.” He likes the Bills to win at home, while the rest of the Gridiron Geeks are flying with Joe Flacco and the Ravens.
Chicago @ Detroit
Again, the rookie Mischievious stands alone, taking the Lions at home while the other Gridiron Geeks like Chicago to leave Detroit with a victory.
New York Giants @ Kansas City Chiefs
The Buzz-Saw goes with Eli Manning and the Giants to bounce back against KC, while the other four Gridiron Geeks like Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles and the Chiefs to get back-to-back-to-back-to-back wins.
Pittsburgh @ Minnesota
Which team will get their first win? The rookie Mischievious and “Nocturne” Deja (you can read Deja’s analysis here) go with Adrian Peterson and the Vikings. The Buzz-Saw, B Hyphen, and Triple S like Pittsburgh to defeat Minnesota in London for their first win of the season.
Arizona @ Tampa Bay
While four of the Gridiron Geeks like Arizona, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” went in the opposite direction and likes the Buccaneers to snipe the Cardinals this week.
Seattle @ Houston
Deja, Hyphen, and Sellers go with the Seahawks on the road, while the rookie Mischievious and the Buzz-Saw like the Texans at home.
New York Jets @ Tennessee
Again, it’s Deja, Hyphen, and Sellers teaming up with the Jets and rookie QB Geno Smith, while the rookie Mischievious and the Buzz-Saw like the Titans to win at home.
Washington @ Oakland
The rookie Mischievious and Sellers go with the Redskins to win in the black hole, while B Hyphen, the Buzz-Saw and Deja like the Raiders to get their second win.
Dallas @ San Diego
B Hyphen, the Buzz-Saw and Deja pick San Diego to get to .500 on the season, while the rookie Mischievious and Sellers go with America’s Team.
