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!

All good things must come to an end, and in NFL Week 4, the TWIF Panel’s run of multiple double-digit win totals finally did; in fact, an “upsetting” week that saw three of their eight unanimous picks fall, the group had a hard time even breaking the .500 barrier collectively. In the end, Gary Myers and Ross Tucker tied for the weekly win at 9-7, with Ryan Ruocco and Howard Cross right behind at 8-8.

Headed into Week 5, the panel is unanimous on seven games and split down the middle on three (with all three splits going the same way), so there could be either some big separation or another bunching depending on how the seven differentials go.

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

WEEK 4 RECORD:
Gary Myers: 9-7
Ross Tucker: 9-7
Ryan Ruocco: 8-8
Howard Cross: 8-8

SEASON TO DATE RECORDS:
Ross Tucker: 44-20
Ryan Ruocco: 43-21
Gary Myers: 42-22
Howard Cross: 35-29
