thewhyteboar stays in the lead going into week 15!  He bet big and guessed well to extend his lead.  But don't get comfy; half the leaderboard is still in one-bet striking distance of the top!

 

-= WEEK 14 RESULTS =-

 

Feature Game: Minnesota Vikings @ Seattle Seahawks (-3)

The Seahawks roll the Vikings by a score of 18(21-3)-7. Bets on Seattle win.
 

-= QUESTIONS =-

 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Vikings touchdown, Vikings field goal, Vikings safety, Seahawks touchdown, Seahawks field goal, or Seahawks safety? ($4,500 for the correct call)

The first score was a Seabass FG for Seattle. Guesses on a Seahawks FG get it.
 
2) Which team in the Feature Game will have the final posession of the game? ($3,500 for the correct call)

After a last minute TD puts the Vikings on the board they attempted a failed onsides kick recovered by Seattle who goes into victory formation for the final possession.  Bets on Seattle win.

 

3) How many rushing yards will the Colts tally this week? 0-49, 50-99, 100-149, 150-199, 200+ ($4,000 for the correct answer)

The Colts put up a combined 50 yards of rushing. Guesses for 50-99 win. Oddly enough only 2 players didn't guess this.

 

4) Which team scores the most points on SUNDAY? ($5,000 for the correct call)

The New York Football Giants. Blech.  Nobody called this because why the hell would you?

 

5) Pick the winners ($3,500 for each correct pick, $5,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly)
Detroit @ Arizona
N.Y. Jets @ Buffalo
N.Y. Giants @ Redskins

Bad week for home teams.  Several people called the Lions and Giants, but it was only RedSoxFan9 who had faith in the Jets making him the only player to earn the Week 14 picks bonus!

 

6) Name the kicker who will successfully hit the most field goals (not PATs) in Week 14? ($5,000 for the correct game)

Michael Badgley hit 4 for the Chargers to lead all kickers in week 14.

 

7) Rams @ Bears - Which team scores FIRST? ($3,500 for the correct team)

The Rams hit on on 1st quarter FG to get the first points of this low scoring affair.

 

8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in Week 14. ($10,000 for each player named correctly, $20,000 bonus if both names are called)

Derrick Henry had a record setting night on Thursday, putting up 238 yards and 4 TDs for the Titans while Amari Cooper went off for 217 yards to lead all receivers.  Nobody called Henry and SFLUFAN was the only player to guess Cooper's big day, giving him a big cash bump for the week despite losing his all-in bet! No bonus awarded.

Good luck to everyone in Week 15!  Feature Game and Questions follow this post!

 

-= THE RULES =-

1. You make your bet and answer the questions simply by posting on the thread each week with your pick for the featured game along with your bet, followed by your answers to the prediction questions.

2. Everyone starts with $1,000. If a user doesn't start until week 3, they still start with $1,000. Your best bet it to get in early and play every week.

3. If you somehow reach $0 you are not out of the competition. You can't bet on the feature game during weeks that you are broke, but you can answer the prediction questions and hope to earn cash to gamble the following week.

4. IMPORTANT: I will set a deadline for getting your entries for the week in (usually before kick-off of that week's first game). It is imperative that you make your post before the deadline. The entry thread will be locked at the deadline so if you don't get your entry in by then you lose out on the chance to make money that week.

5. I work full time AND coach youth football AND go to school when I can AND have a near crippling gaming addiction AND probably drink too much. Responsibilities and personality flaws allowing, I will attempt to post the results and the next week's game/questions each Tuesday, as early as possible. Keep in mind though that there may be some wackiness here and there based on my schedule and hangovers. Pay attention.

6. For the official recording of stats/yardage NFL.com will be used. Whatever their site says on Tuesday morning is what counts.  No whining.

8. Accounts created within the current calendar month are not eligible to play and any entries from such accounts will not be considered.
