Want to test your football prognostication skills against the experts of This Week in Football? This season, you have the chance!

Each week, we will post the TWIF panel’s picks for every game on the NFL slate here on YESNetwork.com, so you can see how your thoughts compare to those of Ryan Ruocco, Howard Cross, Ross Tucker, and Gary Myers. In addition, we’ll also be keeping a tally of how Ryan and the gang do all season, so come January you’ll see who has bragging rights as the big winner among the panel.

You can keep track of your record and see if you end up beating the experts...and of course, don't forget to watch This Week in Football every Tuesday during the NFL season on YES!

Week 3 was another wacky, upset-filled few days in the NFL, and that carried over to the TWIF panel’s picks; the gang was unanimous on 11 games last week, but only three teams (the Cowboys, Jets, and Bears) came through for Ryan, Howard, Ross, and Gary. As a result, only one man wasn’t in the red this week, with Howard Cross’ 8-8 mark giving him the weekly win and vaulting him into a tie for the overall lead with Daily News columnist Gary Myers.

For Week 4, the TWIF panel is unanimous in their picks for nine of the 15 games on the slate, and Gary Myers will play a big role in the final standings; of the remaining six games, he is the lone dissenter on four of them, being the only one to choose Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, and Tampa Bay. Will those picks be prudent and help him regain the outright overall lead?

Let’s see who the gang has gone with this week, but first, a look at the latest standings…

WEEK 3 RECORD:
Howard Cross: 8-8 (.500)
Ryan Ruocco: 6-10 (.375)
Gary Myers: 5-11 (.313)
Ross Tucker: 5-11(.313)

SEASON TO DATE RECORDS:
Gary Myers: 25-23 (.521)
Howard Cross: 25-23 (.521)
Ryan Ruocco: 24-24 (.500)
Ross Tucker: 23-25 (.479)
