The tight race at the top of the leaderboard shifts again as Biggie pulls ahead of the crowd!  Not a lot of correct calls on our Thanksgiving Touchdown makers made Week 13's bet on the Feature Game a crucial one and with our deposed leader dropping the ball, Biggie was quick to snap up that top spot!  As a side note, the number of people who called McCaffery as the week's rushing leader is disappointing.  You should all be ashamed. *wags finger* :P
