The moniker “Black Sunday” (and Monday Night) doesn’t even begin to describe the absolute annihilation of our pool, as 7 of the top 8 most picked teams all came up losers in Week #2.
The Saints took their usual place at the top of the “pool killer” list by losing their home opener to the Buccaneers. But the thrashing didn’t end there. Upset losses by the Ravens, Dolphins, Colts, and Rams all contributed to the carnage.
Week #2 by the numbers:
34 players began Week #2
7 advance to Week #3
IMPORTANT: Please remember that the web site (www.runyourpool.com) locks picks precisely at 1:00 PM ET on SUNDAY for ALL GAMES played on Sunday and Monday Night.(This includes ALL kickoff times for Sunday and Monday).
