FAN VOTE GAMES
The KELOLAND Sports Team asked for your help predicting games over the past four weeks. Weeks two, three and four weren’t very successful for the fans as they went just 2-7, but week five saw some improvement.
The fans were 2-1 in week five!
71.4% of the votes predicted a Packers win and while Green Bay need overtime, they ended up with the win over the Bengals.
Minnesota nearly lost the game allowing 11 points in the final two and a half minutes of the game, but a 54-yard, game winning Greg Joseph field goal earned the Vikings a 19-17 win over Detroit.
Then the lone loss for the fans in week five.
The fans went with the Chiefs, but the Bills came out swinging and looked very impressive in their Sunday night victory.
