  1. Sunday, January 19 Tennessee Titans (9-7) 3:05pm ET CBS Kansas City Chiefs (12-4) Green Bay Packers (13-3) 6:40pm ET FOX San Francisco 49ers (13-3) "The winner of these games goes to the superbowl"
  2. I figured with games starting on Saturday (Florida vs Miami), now would be as good a time as ever to start up the ol' college thread.
  3. Hitting the Feature Game bet and doing very well in the questions has let AbsolutSurgen extend his lead and give himself a little more breathing room. With only 2 weeks to go will anyone be able to knock him off his perch or will he take home the title and the prize? ########## DIVISIONAL ROUND RESULTS ########## Feature Game: Seattle Seahawks (+4.5) at Green Bay Packers The Pack just edged out the Seahawks by a score of 27.5(23+4.5)-28 to move on to the Conference Championship. Bets on Green Bay win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Seahawks TD, Seahawks FG, Seahawks safety, Packers TD, Packers FG, Packers safety, or other? ($5,000 for the correct call) Aaron Rodgers hucked a 20 yarder to Adams for a touchdown to start off the scoring in this one. Calls on GB TD get it. AbsolutSurgen and Biggie were the only players to call this. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will have the most time of posession? ($4,000 for the right number) In one of the most dead even games of the year, in terms of ToP, Seattle had the ball for just 1:02 more than Green Bay, holding the ball for 30:31. 3) How many missed field goals (not PATs) do we see this weekend? ($7,000 for the correct number) 2 field goals were missed over Divisional weekend, including one that would've flipped the Feature Game. Keyser_Soze and Slug were the only players to guess this one correctly. 4) Houston @ Kansas City: Over or Under 48.5 points? ($4,000 for the right guess) Over. Way over. The Chefs and Texans go off for 82 combined points. 5) Call the winners: Minnesota at San Francisco Tennessee at Baltimore Houston at Kansas City ($4,000 for EACH correct named game winner, $8,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Several people got one or two right, but nobody got all three as every player called on Baltimore to win. 6) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in the Divisional Round. ($10,000 for each player named correctly, $15,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry (shock of shocks) led all rushers this weekend with 195 yards, while Davante Adams took in 160 through the air to lead the field of receivers. AbsolutSurgen and thewhyteboar called Henry while Keyser_Soze called Adams. Nobody called both for the bonus. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @AbsolutSurgen - $198,000 @thewhyteboar - $136,850 @Keyser_Soze - $123,000 Slug - $57,000 @Biggie - $40,950 @BasemntDweller2 - $30,000 @Greatoneshere - $19,000 @Dodger - $18,600 @Jose- $13,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  4. Joe Burrow says Browns' Odell Beckham Jr. handed out real cash to LSU players Does this count as "lack of institutional control"?

  6. Saturday, January 11 Minnesota Vikings (10-6) 4:35pm ET NBC San Francisco 49ers(13-3) Tennessee Titans (9-7) 8:15pm ET CBS Baltimore Ravens (14-2) Sunday, January 12 Houston Texans (10-6) 3:05pm ET CBS Kansas City Chiefs (12-4) Seattle Seahawks (11-5) 6:40pm ET FOX Green Bay Packers (13-3) Take note on Sunday, they are playing games later than they usually do, maybe to cater to the best coast?
  7. Both betting correctly on the Feature Game and being one of two players to divine all the crazy results this weekend in Question 5 allows AbsolutSurgen to maintain his position atop the leaderboard! But with 3 weeks to, several players in striking distance, and questions getting more valuable can he hold on to the end? Let's find out! ########## WILD CARD RESULTS ########## Feature Game: Minnesota Vikings (+7.5) at New Orleans Saints The Minnesota Vikings upset the hosting Saints by a score of 33.5(26+7.5)-20 to advance to the Divisional round of the playoffs! QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Vikings TD, Vikings FG, Vikings safety, Saints TD, Saints FG, Saints safety, or other? ($4,000 for the correct call) The first score in this one was a New Orleans field goal; a 29 yarder hit by Willy Lutz in the first quarter. Nobody called this one; literally every player guessed a Saints TD. 2) How many total turnovers (combined/both teams) will occur in the Feature Game? ($4,000 for the right number) A pair of fumbles and an INT put the total turnovers in the Feature Game at 3. 3) Of the 4 Wild Card games this weekend, how many will be decided by 8 or fewer points? ($3,000 for the correct number) All of them. In a Wild Card weekend that saw four close contests including two games going to OT, in the end every game was decided by a single posession. thewhyteboar and Keyser_Soze were the only players to foresee how competitive this weekend would get. 4) Which team this weekend will be the most heavily penalized, by number of penalties (not yards). ($3,000 for the right team) Seattle was flagged 11 times on Sunday Night; the only team to break double-digit penalties over Wild Card weekend. Nobody guessed the Seahawks. 5) Call the winners: Buffalo at Houston Tennessee at New England Seattle at Philadelphia ($3,000 for EACH correct named game winner, $6,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Both thewhyteboar and AbsolutSurgen saw the upsets happening and called all three games correctly to earn the bonus! 6) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards over Wild Card Weekend. ($12,000 for each player named correctly, $24,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry put up 182 yards nearly doubling the next closest runner while DK Metcalf sped his way to 160 yards in the air to lead all receivers. A few players called Henry, but nobody called Metcalf. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @AbsolutSurgen - $151,000 @thewhyteboar - $119,850 @Keyser_Soze - $97,000 Slug - $79,000 @BasemntDweller2 - $30,000 @Greatoneshere - $19,000 @Jose - $13,100 @Biggie - $12,950 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @Dodger - $7,300 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  9. Saturday, January 4 Buffalo Bills (10-6) 4:35pm ET ABC / ESPN Houston Texans (10-6) Tennessee Titans (9-7) 8:15pm ET CBS New England Patriots (12-4) Sunday, January 5 Minnesota Vikings (10-6) 1:05pm ET FOX New Orleans Saints (13-3) Seattle Seahawks (11-5) 4:40pm ET NBC Philadelphia Eagles (9-7) That feeling when 13 - 3 isn't good enough to clinch a bye.
  10. With the week's only correct bet on the Feature Game and being the only player to hit the Question 5 bonus, AbsolutSurgen surges ahead to take command of the leaderboard as we say goodbye to the regular season and enter the playoffs! We're in the home stretch as only 4 weeks remain in the MGT! Put on your thinking caps and make those bets count! ########## WEEK 17 RESULTS ########## Feature Game: San Francisco 49'ers (-3.5) at Seattle Seahawks The Niners beat the Seahawks by a score of 22.5(26-3.5)-21 to secure their seeding in the post-season. Bets on San Fran win. AbsolutSurgen was the only player to place a winning bet on the 49'ers. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Niners TD, Niners FG, Niners safety, Seahawks TD, Seahawks FG, Seahawks safety, or other? ($3,500 for the correct call) Robbie Gould hit a 47 yard field goal for the 49'ers in the first quarter to start the ball rolling in the Feature Game. Calls on a niners FG get it. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will have the most different players credited with positive rushing yards? ($2,500 for the correct team or correctly guessing a tie) San Francisco had 6 players credited with positive rushing yards to Seattle's 3. Guesses for SF get this one. 3) Name the quarterback that will throw for the FEWEST yards in Week 17 (minimum 8 pass attempts). ($5,000 for the correct name) Rookie quarterback Will Grier just barely got in 8 pass attempts for a whopping 4 yards before exiting the game with a foot injury. Nobody called Grier. 4) No time to read: Name the player that, from snap to tackle, has the fastest sack of Week 17. ($5,000 for the right name) With the fastest sack by half-a-second, Houston's Briean Boddy-Calhoun flys in to make the backfield tackles in a ridiculous 1.47 seconds. 5) Call the winners: NY Jets at Buffalo Chicago at Minnesota Pittsbugh at Baltimore ($3,000 for EACH correct named game winner, $6,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) AbsolutSurgen crushed Question #5 in the final week of the regular season, being the only player to nail all 3 games and earn the bonus! 6) Going into this final week there are 3 teams, the Steelers, Raiders and Cowboys, who need various scenarios to happen in order for them to make the playoffs. When the dust settles from Week 17, how many of them make it in? ($3,500 for the right guess) Sadly none of these teams had the chips fall their way in Week 17. Zero is the right call. 7) Final Week Touchdowns: Name any game AND a player who will score a touchdown in that game. ($5,000 for a correct combination). If anyone had called a correct combo, they would've gotten it. But nobody did. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week seventeen. ($15,000 for each player named correctly, $30,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry went off for 211 yards on the ground while DeVante Parker pulled in 137 through the air to lead all ball carriers in Week 17. Only thewhyteboar called Henry's number to earn the rushing title cash. Nobody called both for the bonus. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @AbsolutSurgen - $104,000 @thewhyteboar - $97,850 @Keyser_Soze - $86,000 @Biggie - $68,950 Slug - $31,000 @Jose - $13,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @BasemntDweller2 - $7,500 @Dodger - $6,300 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  11. For some teams it is a day of rest. For other teams it's a fight for a bye or even a shot at the playoffs. AFC Kansas City clinches a #2 seed and first round bye with a win and a Patriots win or a (Chiefs) loss and Texans loss. Patriots get a #2 seed with a win or a Chiefs loss. Texans will be the #3 seed with a win and Chiefs loss otherwise they are a #4. Titans can clinch the #6 seed with a win or a Steelers and Colts loss. Steelers clinch the #6 seed if they win and the Titans lose / Titans and Raiders lose and the Colts win / Colts and Raiders win and the Bears, Lions, Chargers and Patriots lose. Raiders get the #6 seed if they win and both the Titans and Steelers lose AND the Colts win AND if Bears, Lions, Chargers or Patriots win. NFC Packers can get #1 seed with a win and 49ers loss. With a win and 49ers win or a (Packers) loss and and a Saints loss they will be the #2 seed. 49ers clinch the NFC west and #1 seed with a win. With a loss they'll be the #5 seed. Seahawks clinch the NFC west with a win but need the Packers and Saints to be the #1 seed. They are the #2 seed with a win and Packers loss. Just a win makes them the #3 seed. A loss makes them a #5 seed. Saints get a first round bye with a win and a loss bye 49ers or packers if both lose Saints get the #1 seed. Cowboys need a win and Eagles loss to clinch the division. Eagles clinch the east and #4 seed with a win or Cowboys loss. Bengals will the the first pick in the draft no matter if they win or lose!
  12. With a winning bet on the Feature Game and doing pretty well in the Question, thewhyteboar surges ahead to claim the top spot going into the final week of the regular season. Nobody can rest easy though, as the competition continues into the playoffs and the title of MGT Champion is still anyone's to win! ########## WEEK 16 RESULTS ########## Feature Game: Houston Texans (-2.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Texans just edged out the Bucs by a score of 20.5(23-2.5)-20. By a half-point margin, bets on Houston win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Texans TD, Texans FG, Texans safety, Buccaneers TD, Buccaneers FG, Buccaneers safety, or other? ($3,000 for the correct call) Fairbairn hit a 32 yarder in the first quarter to start the scoring in the Feature Game. Calls on a Texans FG win. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will complete passes to the most DIFFERENT targets? ($2,500 for the correct team or correctly guessing a tie) The Texans completed passes to 7 different receivers while the Bucs got completions to 8 of 'em. Guesses on Tampa get it. 3) Name any two receivers that will BOTH catch over 100 yards in passes this week. ($3,000 for two correct players) Jones, Thomas, Boyd, McCaffrey, Woods, Adams, Parker, Beasley, Renfrow, Higbee and Perriman all went for over 100 yards. While several players got one, nobody got two. 4) They make me nervous holding the ball out like that. Name one quarterback that fumbles this week. ($3,000 for a right name) In a pretty good week for quarterback grip strength, only Darnold, Dalton and Jackson put one on the ground. Nobody called any of these players. 5) Call the winners: Dallas at Philadelphia New York Giants at Washington Cincinati at Miami ($2,500 for EACH correct named game winner, $5,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) No bonus awarded. 6) Will any single player tally 3 or more rushing touchdowns in Week 16? ($2,500 for the right guess) Five players came close with 2, but no runner managed to cross the goal line 3 times. 7) Making 'em miss: Name the player that will record the most Yards After Catch on a single play in Week 15. ($5,000 for the correct name). Austin Ekeler caught a short pass from Rivers and with some terrific blocking from his outside line, took it to the house for a touchdown tallying 85 YAC in a single play, the longest of Week 16. thewhyteboar was the only player to somehow see this one coming! 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week fifteen. ($10,000 for each player named correctly, $20,000 bonus if both names are called) Barkley rushed for 189 to lead all runners (bleh) while Julio Jones pulled down 166 through the air to lead the receivers. Keyser_Soze called Barkley, earning a quick $10k. Nobody called Jones so no bonus awarded. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @thewhyteboar - $81,350 @Keyser_Soze - $75,900 @AbsolutSurgen - $74,000 @Biggie - $72,450 Slug - $30,500 @Jose - $13,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @BasemntDweller2 - $7,500 @Dodger - $6,300 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  13. As you already know, of course, no TNF this week. Instead we get 3 Saturday games. These 3 games look like the best games of the week so watch football on Saturday and sleep in on Sunday and watch the Monday Night game.
  14. With a safe bet on the Feature Game and being the only player to nail the bonus on the Question 5 pick 'em, Biggie solidifies his spot atop the mountain! With only 2 weeks left in the regular season, the time is ripe for players to set themselves up for that playoff run! What shake-ups will Week 16 bring? ########## WEEK 15 RESULTS ########## Feature Game: Buffalo Bills (+2.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers The Bills beat the Steelers by a score of 19.5(17+2.5)-10, winning on the field and in the MGT. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Bills TD, Bills FG, Bills safety, Steelers TD, Steelers FG, Steelers safety, or other? ($2,500 for the correct call) Allen kept the ball and ran in from 1 yard out behind his left guard for a touchdown and the first score of this game. Calls on a Buffalo TD get it. 2) Which team in the feature game will be the most heavily penalized in terms of YARDAGE? ($2,000 for the correct team) Buffalo got flagged 8 times for 70 yards, with Pittsburgh only catching 6 for 30. Guess on the Bills get this one. 3) Name any two running backs that will BOTH rush for over 100 yards this week.

Under 50, 51-99, 100-149, 150-199, 200-249, 250-299, or 300+ ($2,500 for the right guess) Aaron Rodgers threw for 203 yards in this NFC rivalry game. Picks on 200-249 win.

($2,500 for the right number) The Broncos and the Colts were the only team who could muster at least 10 points in Week 15. 2 is the call. Slug and thewhyteboar were the only players to guess this one. 7) Seattle at Carolina: Will the longest touchdown scored in this game be over or under 50 yards? ($2,000 for the right call) Under is the call as this entire game was scored in the Red Zone, with the longest TD being from 19 yards out. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week fifteen. ($9,000 for each player named correctly, $18,000 bonus if both names are called) Kenyan Drake led all rushers with 137 on the ground while Travis Kelce tracked down 142 yards through the air to lead all pass catchers. Nobody called either player. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @Biggie - $71,450 @thewhyteboar - $61,350 @Keyser_Soze - $58,400 @AbsolutSurgen - $54,000 Slug - $30,500 @Jose - $13,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @Dodger - $6,300 @BasemntDweller2 - $6,200 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  15. Well if you decide to watch TNF tonight over the Game Awards you might get to see Lemar Jackson demolish the Jets. Pats are so bad they have to record the 1-12 Bengals sideline? Will Aaron Rodgers continue his decline against the bears? Are the Texans going to decide if they want to clinch this thing or not? Does Philadelphia have any more receivers left to be able to beat Washington? Buffalo gets a primetime game, o em gee! A Monday night shootout?
  16. Some big matchups, Atletico vs. Liverpool and Real Madrid against Manchester City. It would be nice for English soccer to completely eliminate Madrid from the league.
  17. There are only 4 weeks left in the season and so far beyond a handful of teams a season to forget. Usually by the time the playoffs roll around the you can tell who's a lock to make the playoffs. But in the AFC so far 8 teams are in the hunt, even the 4-8 Jets have a chance at the wild card (a very distant chance but yuck!) Even in the NFC even the Redskins have some hope somehow. But I'm guessing after this week a lot of teams will be eliminated from contention. I see a handful of games that should be good. Baltimore at Buffalo, San Francisco at New Orleans and Kansas City at New England. And for lulz the return of Eli Manning on Monday night! Woo!
  18. The tight race at the top of the leaderboard shifts again as Biggie pulls ahead of the crowd! Not a lot of correct calls on our Thanksgiving Touchdown makers made Week 13's bet on the Feature Game a crucial one and with our deposed leader dropping the ball, Biggie was quick to snap up that top spot! As a side note, the number of people who called McCaffery as the week's rushing leader is disappointing. You should all be ashamed. *wags finger* :P ########## WEEK 13 RESULTS ########## Feature Game: Chicago Bears (-3.5) at Detroit Lions In a close contest, Chicago barely edges out the Lions by a score of 20.5(24-3.5)-20. Bets on the Bears win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Bears TD, Bears FG, Bears safety, Lions TD, Lions FG, Lions safety, or other? ($2,000 for the correct call) Trubisky hit Robinson from 10 yards out for the first score of the Feature Game. 2) Who will score the first touchdown in the Feature Game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Allen Robinson. Did you even read the Question 1 answer? 3) Who will score the first touchdown in the Buffalo @ Dallas game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Jason Witten pulled in a short pass from Prescott for the first touchdown in a losing effort to the Bills. 4) Who will score the first touchdown in the New Orleans @ Atlanta game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Brees shovels a short one to Taysom Hill for the first TD of this one. 5) Call the winners: Tennessee at Indianapolis Tampa Bay at Jacksonville Cleveland at Pittsburgh ($1,500 for EACH correct named game winner, $3,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Dodger was the only player to earn the bonus, calling all 3 games correctly. 6) Who will score the first touchdown in the Washington @ Carolina game? ($2,000 for the correct team player) Another passing TD, Samuel gets a 4 yard grab for a score early in the game as the Panthers get off to a quick start before the Redskins came roaring back. 7) Who will score the first touchdown in the L.A. Rams @ Arizona game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Higbee. That's a fun name to say. Higbee. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week thirteen. ($6,000 for each player named correctly, $12,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry rumbled for 149 yards on the ground and Rob Woods hauled in a ridiculous 172 through the air to lead offensive players in Week 13. Nobody called either player. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @Biggie - $48,650 @thewhyteboar - $46,150 @AbsolutSurgen - $44,100 @Keyser_Soze - $43,700 Slug - $38,700 @Jose - $37,700 @Dodger - $24,600 @BasemntDweller2 - $18,000 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  19. Happy Thanksgiving all. This week we are blessed with not many(?) great games. Which cowboys will show up to play the Bills, that game on paper seems the most intriguing Thanksgiving day game. 49ers vs Ravens needed to be flexed. We get a Browns vs Steelers rematch, it seems like just last week people were slamming helmets into each other. Oh wait, that was 2 weeks ago! Time to see the Texans get shut down by the Patriots. Monday night could be exciting. Woo! 🦃
  20. With a conservative bet on the Feature Game and doing very well in the Questions, thewhyteboar hangs on to his slim lead going into the Thanksgiving holiday week! While the leaderboard seems to have stabilized in Week 12, a big jump brings one player back into contention going down the stretch (I see you, Jose)! On to Week 13! ########## WEEK 12 RESULTS ########## Feature Game - Baltimore Ravens (-3.5) at LA Rams The Ravens absolutely steamrolled the hapless Rams by a score of 41.5(45-3.5)-6. Bets on Bal'mr win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Ravens TD, Ravens FG, Ravens safety, Rams TD, Rams FG, Rams safety, or other? ($1,800 for the correct call) A 6 yard connection from Jackson to Brown in the 1st quarter kicked off the scoring in this one (Ravens TD). 2) How many total combined touchdowns will be scored in the Feature Game? ($1,800 for the correct call) Six touchdowns were scored in the Feature Game, all by the Ravens. 3) Which game in Week 12 will have the highest combined score? ($1,600 for the correct game) Two games, Dolphins @ Browns and Panthers @ Saints, tie for the top combined score in Week 12 with 65 points scored in each. A call for either of these games gets the cash. Slug and thewhyteboar were the only players to guess one of these games. 4) Which QB in Week 12 will have the highest number of pass attempts? ($2,000 for the right guess) 'ol Nicky Foles had the most passing attempts for the week, chucking 48 in a losing effort for the Jags. Nobody called Foles. 5) Call the winners: Seattle at Philadelphia Denver at Buffalo Green Bay at San Francisco ($1,500 for EACH correct named game winner, $3,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) There wasn't a lot of faith from our players this week in San Francisco, but BasemntDweller2, Jose, and thewhyteboar each called all 3 games correct to earn the bonus! 6) Taking into account TOTAL DISTANCE covered on the field, name the team that will have the single longest play of Week 12. ($1,800 for the right team) The longest play in Week 12 goes to the Redskins and Steven Sims, who covered 114 yards of total distance on his way to a 91 yard kick-off return for a touchdown in Washington's 2nd win of the season. Slug was the only player to guess the Redskins because of course he did. 7) Name any RB that will average 5 or more yards per carry with at least 10 attempts. ($2,000 for any correct player) Nick Chubb, Derrick Henry, Devin Singletary, Bo Scarbrough, Mark Ingram, Rashaad Penny, and Miles Sanders each average 5 yards or greater per rush, with at least 10 attempts this week. Keyser_Soze was the only player to call one of these names right, betting on Chubb to keep up his production. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week twelve. ($5,000 for each player named correctly, $10,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry rushed for 159 yards to lead all runners and Chris Godwin pulled in 184 receiving yards to top the receivers in Week 12. Nobody called either player. I can't read, apparently! Jose called Godwin! This is why you check my math, people. :P ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @thewhyteboar - $46,650 @Biggie - $41,650 @Keyser_Soze - $37,600 @AbsolutSurgen - $35,100 @Jose - $22,700 Slug - $21,600 @Dodger - $19,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @BasemntDweller2 - $7,500 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  21. We have made it to week 12 and it looks like there are some good games this week. Thursday night game is actually a game that matters between two winning teams. The winner likely goes on to win the division and Colts have already beat the Texans. Buccanneers and Falcons both suck but they generally put up a lot of points so it could be worth watching just for that. Saints and Panthers might be nice as long as the Panthers from last week don't show up. Seahawks and Eagles is promising as is Cowboys and Patriots. Packers and 49ers were flexed into SNF and it should be pretty good. And even the Monday night game might not be bad.
  22. thewhyteboar finally knocks Keyser_Soze from his perch atop the leaderboard! Losing on the Feature Game, but doing well in the questions, thewhyteboar eeks his was into the lead. Only $400 separates 1st and 2nd place, and most of the leaderboard is still in a single week's striking distance! ########## WEEK 11 RESULTS ########## Feature Game - Pittsburgh Steelers (+3.5) at Cleveland Browns The Browns rolled over the Steelers by a score of 21-10.5(7+3.5). Bets on Cleveland win. Biggie was the only player to call Cleveland, despite them being favored! QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Steelers TD, Steelers FG, Steelers safety, Browns TD, Browns FG, Browns safety, or other? ($1,700 for the correct call) The first scoring play was a Mayfield keeper up the gut from a yard out. Calls on a Browns TD get it. Biggie was the only player to call a Cleveland touchdown to kick things off. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will be more heavily penalized in terms of YARDAGE? ($1,400 for the correct call) Cleveland by far. The Browns had a total of 121 penalty yards to Pittsburgh's 41. 3) Which game on SUNDAY will have the lowest combined score? ($1,500 for the correct game) The Bears @ Rams game tallied a mere 24 points between the two teams to be our low scoring contest for the week. Alpha1Cowboy was the only player to see this lack of offensive production coming. 4) How many total yards will Baltimore rush for this week? 0-49, 50-99, 100-149, 150-199, or 200+ ($1,700 for the right guess) Baltimore tore up the turf for a combined 263 yards rushing in Week 11. Bets on 200+ win, but nobody called it. 5) Call the winners: NY Jets at Washington Jacksonville at Indianapolis New England at Philadelphia ($1,400 for EACH correct named game winner, $2,800 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) AbsolutSurgen, BasemntDweller2, and thewhyteboar each called all 3 games correctly to earn the bonus! 6) Kings of Florida - Which Florida team will score the most points in Week 11?

Nobody called Miami. 7) Escape Velocity - Name the player that will record the highest top speed for a scoring play in Week 11 ($3,000 for the right player) While a few ball carriers were faster, your top speed on a scoring play was 20.84 MPH, clocked by the Saints' Marcus Williams on a 55 yard interception return for a touchdown in the 4th quarter against the Bucs.
