This will take a minute to read but I’ll do all the math and stuff at the end of each round. 

Each correct game pick winner this week is 4 points ….same for game pick including spread. Over/under is 2 points so each game is worth 10 points. Everything else will be a yes or no worth 5 points and many opportunities to guess correct player/team for 2 points bonus.

There will be a bonus worth 1-10 points (subjective)

Each round I’ll try to make worth 100 points and enough potential extra credit to get near 100 if a great round of guessing. Please format so I can tally easily.

I’ll put pickem game in the next post here in a couple minutes.

My picks

(Game winner/winner w spread/OU)

1. Browns/Browns/under

2. Chiefs/Chiefs/under

3. Bills/Steelers/under

4. Cowboys/Cowboys/under

5. Lions/Lions/under

6. Eagles/Eagles/under

NO  team over 37.5 (Cowboys)

NO QB over yardage (Stroud)

NO receiver yardage (Collins)

YES RB yardage (Pollard)

YES missed XP (Buffalo)

YES 54+ yd FG (Rams)

NO OT game (Dolphins/Chiefs)


My Bonus:  There will be a team that fumbles into the endzone and thru to OB, that results in a touchback for the defense, most likely in Buffalo, and it ends up being a catalyst for changing the rule that should have been changed to put the ball back to the spot of the fumble if the defense does not make a legitimate recovery, when they changed it to not allow the offense to gain yardage when the fumble goes forward OB or recovered by another offensive player. 


Ironman hacking in….Thank You. Your bonus will be worth 7 points if it happens, 9 if in Buffalo game

The two pick sixes diminished my chances of getting any points for most passing and receiving yards by Stroud and Collins.

Zero bonus for me. Dolphins 0 fumbles as the only impressive thing they did. You are welcome.
