RAY: Here's the answer. A team with no place kicker cannot score an odd number of points.

TOM: Why not?

RAY: Well, because touchdowns are six points. And the extra points that a team with no place kicker can score are two points.

TOM: Ohh.

RAY: They can't score a one-point extra point, and they can't kick field goals which are three points. So do we have a winner?

TOM: The winner this week is John Kaye from Seattle, Washington. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, John will get a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which he can get a four pack of our new Car Talk reusable shopping bags.

RAY: Congratulations, John!
