Packer "Six-Pack" Pick'em Challenge: Week Seven

Postby APB » Thu Oct 22, 2015 11:31 am

Week six proved to be yet another vexing week for forum prognosticators. With Pittsburgh showing some moxie at home and Jacksonville falling back to their old ways, forum members took it on the chin once again in their weekly picks.

There was one member, however, who stood out amongst the rabble with our first PERFECT SCORE OF THE SEASON: congratulations Packpower! Your work was especially impressive considering no other poster managed to guess more than four picks correct. Well done, sir!

Rules and general outline of the game from the original thread:
I'll post four weekly games that have intriguing match-ups for you to ponder and choose a winner - those will serve as the "four." Next, we'll use the Packer game match-up as a weekly pick to kinda help you guys and gals out as a "gimme" game. Judging from last year, several of you could use the help! Lastly, we'll once again ask you to provide us with your "upset special" of the week. This can be any team you like to include teams previously selected in the "four" or Packer game match-up, just as long as your pick is a game day "underdog" as listed by the provided Vegas betting line website. Keep in mind, though, if you choose to double-down on one of the previously selected games of the week, you'll pay double the price for guessing wrong!

To keep things interesting, this year I will keep a running tally of participant weekly scores. The cumulative scores will be updated each week and posted for you gloat over your genius - or hide in shame from your lack thereof. We'll run the competition through week 17 but only count your top 14 weekly scores (worst three weeks eliminated) thus allowing for participants who accidentally miss a week or two to continue with the contest. The winner will be determined by best overall standing with a tie-breaker going to best overall "upset special" record.

Now, you may be asking yourself - what's the incentive to participate? Well, how about a sweatshirt/hoodie of your choice from the Packer Pro Shop to the winner? Tell me the prospect of that ain't worth two minutes of your time each week!

Edit: I noticed the ProShop has added new items to the website, and with new items come ridiculously high prices. With that, I'm sorry to say I must cap the product cost of the winning prize at $99.99.

Yes, it's true...none of you are worth $100 bucks.
:wink:


And now, let's get to the picks!

This weeks picks:

The four...
Pittsburgh @ Kansas City
Minnesota @ Detroit
Dallas @ NY Giants
Philadelphia @ Carolina

The one...
Tampa Bay @ Washington*

And... last but not least, give us your personal upset special.

To help with your Upset Special, here is a look at this week's schedule through the eyes of Vegas NFL Lines Link.

Scores after week two are posted below.

*Packers on bye; bonus pick.
