Kohn claims the cash

It was a rough week in the NFL with plenty of big upsets, and most of those entering The News-Dispatch Pro Picks contest struggled as well. But three players finished the week with 10-3 records, so it came down to the tie-breaker. Daniel Kohn of Trail Creek guessed 48 points, and that was closest to the 55 scored in the Cowboys 37-18 win over the Giants, so he wins the $50 prize. Play Pro Picks every week by clipping the form in the N-D Sports section and returning it by 4 p.m. Friday.
