UPickEm: Pat Gallant wins final week of regular season, Bob Habeger remains in lead

Paul Raymore

We wrapped up the final week of the regular NFL season this past weekend with a couple great do-or-die games. San Diego, Miami, Minnesota and Philadelphia all played their way into the postseason with wins on Sunday, making for an exciting end to the regular season.

It wasn’t so close this week in the Sierra Sun’s Pro Football UPickEm contest with Tahoe City’s Pat Gallant on top with 14 points, followed by another Tahoe City local, Pete Perata, with 13.

The top of the season-long standings hasn’t changed much since last week, with Bob Habeger still on top with 170 points, Greg Paulson and Jim Scott right behind with 168 apiece, and plenty of other players in the hunt for the ultimate bragging rights.
