Week No. 2 of The IND’s NFL pick-’em contest is in the books. The weekly winner prize goes to IND staffer Jenna King, who correctly picked 10 of the 16 games between Thursday and Monday. Among our VIP pickers, ESPN 1420 AM afternoon host and former NFL wide receiver Billy Rykman bested his fellow pro prognosticators with an underwhelming score of 7/16. In Rykman’s defense, Week 2 in the NFL was a strange affair. Who, really, picked the Jaguars over the Dolphins, the Raiders over the Ravens or the ’Skins over the Rams?
King got to present herself with a bottle Rank Wildcat Rum, a sixpack of LA 31 beer, a $100 gift card to Brothers on the Blvd and a $50 gift card to Maxwell’s Market.*
