After a crazy week #2 that saw 7 underdogs win straight up, dwindling the pool down to single digits, things returned to normal in week #3 as the majority of favorites were winners. Only 1 player, who picked the underdog Buccaneers, was eliminated in week #3. 3 winners advanced picking the Arizona Cardinals, and 1 each advanced by picking New England, Pittsburgh, and Seattle.
Week #3 by the numbers:
7 players began Week #3
1 eliminated (lost on Tampa Bay)
6 advance to Week #4
Note: The NFL has an abnormal schedule for this week with the Jets/Dolphins game at 9:30am Eastern on Sunday (to be played in London). We will be treating this game as an early game (similar to Thursday). Players have up until the scheduled kickoff to pick this game, but may still submit picks for the remainder of the games up until the normal pick deadline at 1pm Eastern on Sunday.
Austin Hardware, along with our great partner TrimLok, will donate a total of $7,500 in the name of the winner(s) to one or a combination of the following charities:
- Wounded Warrior Project
- National Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
- United Way
- Susan G. Komen for the Cure
- Make-A-Wish America
- Boys & Girls Clubs of America
- Humane Society of the United States
