Kansas City lost 13-9 last week, but in giving up only 13 points the Chiefs gave up the fewest points among the 10 teams to choose from in last week's contest (two other teams gave up only 13 points, but were not among the selections, and one team gave up only 6 points, but wasn't a selection choice).

Only one contest entrant picked Kansas City and that was Corinne Marie. Corrinne wins two paninis and fried dough. Corrinne has one week to claim her prize.

Both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Hasselback rushed for 17 yards on Sunday, so the Week 11 contest winner was randomly drawn from among the 25 people who picked either QB as the quarterbacks with the most rushing yards for the week.

The winner for Week 11 is Bob Bartz, who picked Fitzpatrick. Bob wins one small cheese pizza, one topping, one order of wings and a two-liter bottle of soda pop.   He has one week to pick up his prize.

In Week 10 of the NFL season, Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald caught seven passes for 147 yards. 

None of the entrants in our week 10 contest expected Fitzgerald to have such a good game.

So this week's winner was picked in a random drawing from all entrants in the contest.

The winner is Richard Suttell. Richard wins a double order of boneless wings and a small sub from Main St. Pizza Company. He has one week to claim his prize.

Debbie was picked as the winner in a random drawing.

In the Week 5 contest, I screwed up a setting and nobody's answers were recorded. Therefore, the winner was picked randomly from among all contest entrants. I apologize to the entrants for the botched job.

The winner of the Week 5 contest is Tony Johnson.

Reminder, winners have one week from the day they're notified to claim their prize.

Notes: A few weeks ago, Vic Marchese, owner of Main St. Pizza Company mentioned to me, almost offhand, that he thought it would be fun to sponsor a fantasy football contest for the 2011 NFL season. As it so happened, just of that very day, I had available the tools to make it happen. So here you go, a weekly football challenge sponsored by Main St. Pizza Company.

Each week, you will be asked to pick an NFL player who will lead the league in an offensive or defensive statistical category. All of the entrants who pick the correct player will be entered into a drawing to win that week's prize. This week, for example, is a sheet pizza from Main St. Pizza Company.

Each Tuesday we'll post who won the previous week's contest and the new challenge question.
