Charity Football Pool – Week #15 Update

WEEK #15 UPDATE 

The surprise of Week #15 had to be the Tennessee Titans’, 5.5 point underdogs, 19-17 defeat of the Kansas City Chiefs in sub-freezing temperatures at Arrowhead, on a 53-yard field goal by kicker Ryan Succop as time expired. After failing on a two-point conversion attempt following a touchdown with only 3:14 left in regulation, the Titans trailed the Chiefs 17-16. But Tennessee held K.C. to a 3-and-out and got the ball back with just over a minute to go. The Titans proceeded to drive just into range for Succop’s game winner, keeping them in a tie with Houston for the lead in the AFC South.

Meanwhile, 800 miles to the southeast, the only game that mattered to our final two players took place in the climate controlled environment of the Georgia Dome, where the Falcons dismantled the once-proud 49ers 41-13, dropping San Francisco to 1-13 for the season. Atlanta’s victory, coupled with Tampa Bay’s defeat, gives the Falcons a 1-game lead in the NFC South, and of course extends our pool to the penultimate week of the regular season.

Charity Football Pool – Week #14 Update

WEEK #14 UPDATE

We’re slowly chipping away at the field and heading toward a winner in our 2nd annual charity football pool. In Week #14 one of our final 3 players lost their spot when the Houston Texans went into Indianapolis as 6.5 point underdogs to the Colts and came out with a 22-17 victory and first place in the AFC South.

Our final two players advanced on the backs of the Carolina Panthers, who easily handled the San Diego Chargers 28-16 at home, and the Detroit Lions who completed their 8th fourth-quarter comeback of the season (an NFL record) in their 20-17 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Charity Football Pool – Week #13 Update

WEEK #13 UPDATE

Week #13 saw one of our final 4 players eliminated in the most unusual, and heartbreaking ways possible. After trailing the Chiefs 27-16 in Atlanta, the Falcons roared back by scoring two 4th quarter TD’s to take a 28-27 lead with 4:53 to go. That’s when the unthinkable happened. On the 2-point conversion attempt following the Falcons go-ahead TD, Chiefs safety Eric Berry intercepted a Matt Ryan pass and returned it 99 yards giving KC the 2 points, and subsequently taking back the lead, 29-28. Kansas City received the ensuing kickoff and managed to run out the final 4+ minutes of the game to secure the victory.

Our other 3 players advanced to Week #14 when Super Bowl champion Denver upended the Jaguars in Jacksonville, Oakland erased a 24-9 deficit by scoring 29 unanswered points at home to beat Buffalo, and the Seahawks routed the defending NFC champion Carolina Panthers in Seattle on Sunday night.

Charity Football Pool – Week #12 Update

WEEK #12 UPDATE

Coming out of the Thanksgiving weekend games there’s once again no movement to report in the pool. The weekend was lean on upsets as only 4 point spread dogs won outright (San Diego, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and Green Bay), and none of our players had action on those games.

In Week #12 two players advanced, as usual, by picking AGAINST the hapless Browns, who are now 0-12 for the season after losing 27-13 to the New York Giants. The Dolphins kept the hopes of 1 player alive as they held on for a 31-24 win over San Francisco, recording their 6th straight win in the process. Finally, one player advanced when the Saints rang up 555 total net yards in a 49-21 steamrolling of the Los Angeles Rams.

Week #12 by the numbers:
4 players entered Week #12
0 eliminated
4 advance to Week #13

Charity Football Pool – Week #11 Update

WEEK #11 UPDATE

The upset of the week for Week #11 took place in Kansas City where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hit 4 field goals en route to a tough 19-17 win over the home town Chiefs, halting KC’s 5-game winning streak.

There was, however, no movement in the pool this week, as all 4 players successfully advanced on the strength of victories by heavy favorites despite having to sweat it out a bit in a couple of those games. Two players advanced when the New York Giants came back from a 10-point first half deficit to beat the Bears at the Meadowlands; 1 moved to Week #12 when the Lions held off an upset bid by the Jaguars in Detroit; and 1 also stayed alive when Tom Brady returned to his old Northern California stomping grounds with his Patriots to stamp out the 49ers.

Week #11 by the numbers:
4 players entered Week #11
0 eliminated
4 advance to Week #12

Just a reminder that there are 3 games on Thanksgiving Day. If you would like to make a pick on any of those games, you’ll just need to get those picks in before they kickoff. All other games will adhere to the usual 1 PM E.T. Sunday deadline.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Charity Football Pool – Week #10 Update

WEEK #10 UPDATE

All 4 of our remaining players were able to lean on very heavy favorites in Week #10.

Two players entered the weekend breathing easy thanks to Baltimore’s 28-7 victory over the winless Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. The Ravens entered the game as 9.5 point favorites, and despite some early fight by the Browns, were able to pull away late.

Our other two players pinned their hopes to the Arizona Cardinals who, while struggling so far this year, still entered Sunday’s home contest with San Francisco a lusty 13.5 point favorite. Despite leading most of the game, things got a little hairy for our players when San Francisco tied the score 20-20 with just under two minutes remaining in regulation. But the Niners left just enough time for the Cards to drive back down the field and set up Chandler Cantanzaro to kick the game winning 34-yard field goal as time expired.

Week #10 by the numbers:
4 players entered Week #10
0 eliminated
4 advance to Week #11

Continued good luck to all who remain!

Charity Football Pool – Week #9 Update

WEEK #9 UPDATE

The upset of the week took place in Green Bay where the Packers dropped their 2nd straight game, and 3rd in their last 4. This time the Pack lost to the disappointing-thus-far Indianapolis Colts, who came into the game as 6.5 point underdogs with a (3-5) record, and still licking their wounds from a 30-14 home shellacking at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs a week ago.

The Green Bay loss was the only game in Week #9 on which a pool player was eliminated. Two players advanced when the Chiefs won their 4th straight game, and 1 each advanced thanks to wins by Dallas and Seattle.

Week #9 by the numbers:
5 players entered Week #9
1 eliminated
4 advance to Week #10

Continued good luck to all who remain!

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

Charity Football Pool – Week #6 Update

Week #6 Update

One of the bigger upsets of the season occurred in Week #6 when the previously 1-4 Dolphins throttled the previously 4-1, and AFC North leading Steelers, 30-15 in Miami.

Another upset that had an impact on our pool this week was an AFC West battle on Thursday night in San Diego. The Chargers, also previously 1-4, knocked off the previously 4-1, and defending Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos 21-13.

Those two games, combined with the dreaded No Pick, were responsible for knocking 4 of our 13 remaining players out of the pool in Week #6.

Those who survived were split between winners Buffalo (5 players), New England, and Tennessee (2 players each).

Week #6 by the numbers:
13 players entered Week #6
4 eliminated
9 advance to Week #7
