The Chief Chooser went with both winless teams to pick up a victory last week and while the Giants came through the upset pick of the Jaguars went ‘bonk.’ The C.C. finished 9-6, leaving your dart-thrower 61-46 (.570) for the season. Injuries are starting to sprout up across the league and the 2013 season is shaping up to be one where the teams with the best records may be the ones left most unscathed by physical ailments. The injury bug will make week eight a tough test, even as fans of Kansas City hope their Chiefs can keep their magical ride rolling.
