None of the panelists on the "Pro Football Weekly on TV" show stood out in the conference championship round, but despite stumbling last week, PFW publisher/editor Hub Arkush continues to hold a slim lead in the season-to-date standings with a 134-114 record against the spread. Former Bears WR Tom Waddle is one game behind with one game to go, and the two panelists are on opposite sides of the Super Bowl XLVI matchup. Waddle owns the best postseason record of the three, having gone 7-3 against the spread, followed by Hampton at 6-4 and Arkush at 4-6.
Hampton was the only panelist to hit on his lock of the week, and he finishes the locks contest with a sizable edge over the other two, having posted a 14-4-2 record in that category.
No Thursday games have been included this season. Pushes have been dropped from each panelist's record, except for locks.
