Charity Football Pool – Week #8 Update

Week #8 Update

The biggest upset of the week took place in Chicago, in what turned out to be a Halloween night of horrors for the previously 5-1 Minnesota Vikings. In their 20-10 win, the Monsters of the Midway (though not exactly the ’85 Bears), who came into the game at 1-6, shocked, awed, and overwhelmed Minnesota’s porous offensive line all night to completely shut down the run game, rattle Sam Bradford, and keep the NFC North leaders out of the end zone until it was much too late.

Surprisingly, that game eliminated only 1 player. Players used three other games to advance in Week #8. Two players went into the weekend stress free by taking Tennessee over Jacksonville on Thursday night. Two more advanced when Denver held on to avenge their earlier loss to San Diego. One player advanced when Dallas came back from a 10-point second half deficit, twice, to defeat Philadelphia 29-23 in overtime.

Week #8 by the numbers:
6 players entered Week #8
1 eliminated
5 advance to Week #9
