    We're just 3 days away until the Vikings/Saints open up the 2010 NFL season, so why not do this?! Here are the rules:

    You pick one game a week, and if you are correct, then you're allowed to pick for the next week/be able to stay in the game. However, you cannot pick the same team more than once during your streak. So, let's say you pick the Jets for next Monday night, you cannot pick them again for week 2. Simple enough. If you're pick is wrong for the week, you're out of the game.............no 2nd chances until the game resets, which happens when everyone in the field of players (I have no idea how many of you will be interested to play this) is out of the game. Colors are based on how long you outlast everyone, and here are the allotments:



    1 -6 weeks: 24 hours
    7-10 weeks: 48 hours
    11-12 wees: 72 hours
    13-14 weeks: 96 hours
    15 or more weeks: One week


    Though it's easy to find the NFL schedule, I'll post each week's slate of games here every Tuesday (except for today). Good luck!:) And, of course, thanks to Inty for helping me out with the odds & ends of this game.


    Week 1:

    Minnesota at New Orleans


    Sunday, September 12th

    Carolina at NY Giants
    Atlanta at Pittsburgh
    Cleveland at Tampa Bay
    Denver at Jacksonville
    Indianapolis at Houston
    Miami at Buffalo
    Detroit at Chicago
    Oakland at Tennessee
    Cincinnati at New England
    Arizona at St. Louis
    San Francisco at Seattle
    Green Bay at Philadelphia
    Dallas at Washington


    Monday, September 13th

    So I pick one game a week basically and "predict" a winner?

    Alright I'll take Miami over Buffalo

    (I think I did it right, right?)

    This is quite different.

    In that one, you're picking all the games, and whoever gets the most right is the best.

    Here , you pick one game a week. If you get it right, you stay in the game. You get it wrong, and you are out. And, you can only pick each team once. So, pick the Ravens over the Bengals this week, and can't pick the Ravens again. Even if they're playing the Browns.

    I think that it's weird that no one has picked the same matchup/game yet.

    Am I really relying on the Browns in order to keep playing more than a week?

    Yes, yes I am. Browns over the Bucs.

    It will be allowed, but only once....................meaning that every week, as long as it's done before the game starts, you're allowed to change your original pick, but that's it, no multiple changes.
