Austin Hardware’s 3rd Annual Charity Football Pool presented by Trim-Lok
Week #6 Update
Congratulations to Nancy Jusseaume on navigating the roughest 6 weeks of picking football winners in recent memory, and winning our 3rd Annual Charity Football Pool presented by Trim-Lok.
Nancy’s victory came courtesy of the Washington Redskins 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers, along with upset home losses by both the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens.
The title did not come without a little bit of angst for Nancy, however. While the Falcons, 12-point favorites, were busy blowing a 17-point halftime lead en route to falling 20-17 to the Miami Dolphins, and the Ravens (7-point favorites) were being given the boot by Chicago Bears kicker Connor Barth with 3:34 left in overtime, San Francisco was driving at the Washington 40 yard line with 28 seconds remaining, needing only another handful of yards for a legitimate shot at a game winning field goal themselves. But the Niners threw 3 consecutive incomplete passes, were penalized 10 yards for offensive pass interference, and ultimately were intercepted on a 4th down prayer by QB C.J. Beathard, preserving the win for the Redskins and for Nancy.
Nancy will be contacted to decide which of the listed charities she would like to benefit from her victory, and we’ll post that decision in this space in the coming weeks.
The season obviously ran much shorter than we would have hoped due to a number of substantial upsets each week. We do hope everyone who participated enjoyed themselves while it lasted, and look forward to hosting you again next season.
So, for one final time this season …
