Charity Football Pool – Week #16 Update


After numerous consecutive weeks of favorites consistently pulling out victories, a number of underdogs finally broke through. In fact, Week #16 featured 7 point-spread underdogs coming up with straight-up victories. Heck, even the Cleveland Browns finally got their first win of the season!

In our pool BOTH remaining players fell victim. One went down, along with the playoff hopes of the Tennessee Titans, as they were steamrolled by the Jacksonville Jaguars, who just a week ago fired their head coach. Our other player lost when the struggling Arizona Cardinals went on the road and defeated the NFC West division champion Seattle Seahawks 34-31 on a field goal as time expired.

Because both players lost we are going to issue them a “mulligan” (a.k.a. a do-over), allowing them to keep going so we can see if a winner will emerge in Week #17.

Week #16 by the numbers: 
2 players entered Week #16
2 eliminated
2 advance to Week #17 via mulligan
