do we pick two teams each week?

one to win and one to lose?


Oops. Let me clarify.

You pick one winner. That's it. Whatever team they are playing against is the team you're picking to "lose".

For example, if you pick the Vikings to beat Jacksonville in Week 1, you cannot pick another team to beat Jacksonville later in the season.

Smile

i see... so you would have two strikes against you if you pick a team to win, who then loses that week's matchup.

you going to keep track of all this for us?


Once more from the top.

You are predicting the outcome of exactly one game each week. The team you pick to win that game is your "winner" and the team you pick to lose is your "loser". If you are wrong you get one strike. You cannot pick your winner to win again and you cannot pick your loser to lose again.

I should probably post the above paragraph in the rules section.

Smile


Can you pick your loser to win and your winner to lose after the pick? Laughing

Anyways, I'll take San Diego over Oakland.

I'm going to be consistent and hang my hat in every contest this week on the shoulders of Gary Kubiak's squad....

Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans

Just a reminder to everyone that this contest is still open and everyone is welcome.

Get your pick in before kick-off time Sunday.
