NFL Survivor League Picks (Week 17) - Game Predictions

It only took 16 weeks for the NFL to get back on its axis. That's right, Blake Bortles threw a pick-six. It was his first of the season and 12th since 2014, most in the NFL. We also saw more teams eliminated and watched the AFC South continue to leave a horrid stench and make... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks (Week 16): Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids

What another great Sunday of football. We saw teams like the Vikings, Rams, and Jaguars win in dominating fashion. We even saw a piece of paper used to decide a monumental fourth down.

NFL Survivor League Picks (Week 15): Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids

Coming into Sunday, this was one of the best cards we’ve had yet. It lived up to its potential. And then some. We saw a snow game, two overtime games, an incredible Sunday night football game, but it’s all overshadowed by Carson Wentz’s injury. It's so unfortunate to see the potential MVP go down in a...

NFL Survivor League Picks (Week 10): Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids

It was a high scoring and mostly lopsided Sunday. We saw two teams score 51 points, and even got to see three melees. I thought it would be underdog city, but instead, the favorites went 7-4-2 against the spread, 9-4 straight up. And the biggest favorite and team that seemed like a lock, the Seahawks,... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks (Week 8): Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids

What a boring Sunday that was. The matchups were bad and the games even worse. I love good defensive battles, but on Sunday that wasn't even the case.

NFL Survivor League Picks (Week 4): Survivor Pool Targets and Avoids

Week 3 was the week of the dogs. Eight of nine underdogs in the early games covered the spread and six of those teams won outright (not including Vikes because it went off as pick 'em). In total, the underdogs went 11-4. That's absurd. Vegas probably made a killing. The public's two favorite teams did not... Read More

NFL Survivor League Picks - Week 2

Week 1 is in the books and it sure was a doozy. The games were mostly lopsided and dull.
