2017 NFL Survivor Game - Week 3, 13 still alive.
« on: September 04, 2017, 06:46:33 AM »
2016 (Dr. DTVT survived) - http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=48366.0
2015 (no one survives) - http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=44518.0
2014 - (Yorost survives) http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=42240.0
2013 - (no one survives) http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=38799.0

We've been doing this here for years, so let's see if there is interest again.

Rules are simple.

Pick one team to WIN their week one game. If they win, you're still alive and move on to the next week.. If they lose or tie, you're eliminated.

Once you've used a team, you can no longer use them for the duration of the survivor.

Deadline to pick a team is prior to kickoff of their game.

Have fun and good luck.



Week 1   Time (ET)

Thursday, SEP. 7   
Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots   8:30pm

Sunday, SEP. 10   
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills   1:00pm
Atlanta Falcons at Chicago Bears   1:00pm
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals   1:00pm
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns   1:00pm
Arizona Cardinals at Detroit Lions   1:00pm
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans   1:00pm
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Miami Dolphins   1:00pm
Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans   1:00pm
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins   1:00pm
Indianapolis Colts at Los Angeles Rams   4:05pm
Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers   4:25pm
Carolina Panthers at San Francisco 49ers   4:25pm
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys   8:30pm

Monday, SEP. 11   
New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings   7:10pm
Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos   10:20pm


If there are any questions, please let me know.

I think I'm going to have a go with this, for a bit of fun. If I get eliminated in Week 1, then so be it.

Indianapolis Colts, I think. Maybe. How many times am I allowed to change my pick before kickoff? Every team starts at 0-0, so there's no previous form to go on, and I don't want to waste the big teams just yet.

That's a bold strategy Cotton, let's see if it pays off.  *NOT my pick*

It's 50/50 whoever I choose. Either that team wins or they don't.

Andrew Luck has been ruled out. I wouldn't try your luck with Tolzien going against a Wade Phillips D.


You have until the start of the game of the team you pick to lock in your pick, which means you can wait until early Tuesday (your time) if you settle on LA (Chargers) or Denver.


This year's week one is deceptively hard.  But Pittsburgh seems to be the smart pick.

Oh well. If I get eliminated, I get eliminated. No big deal, really.

I talked myself into taking L.A. now due to Phillips vs. Backup, and saving Pittsburgh for later in the season.

L.A. Rams for week 1.

Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

I'm going to try and hang with the good Dr. for twelve weeks again.  Guess I'll start by copying his week one pick.

I haven't followed the NFL in a year or so, so I got no f'n clue who's doing what/where/who/why.

Pretty sure the 9rs are still a shit-show, aren't they?  I'll go with Carolina.

Wouldn't surprise me if they came out hot in the first game with the new coaching staff. They actually have a history of that recently.

First pick of the season is the toughest.  You never know what you're gonna get.

As long as you post your pick before the game is scheduled to start, you're good.  I picked Denver too.  Hoping for a good showing.
