The Eliminator Challenge
Not sure what an eliminator pick is? No worries, we got you covered. Essentially, an eliminator pick is who we absolutely with certainty think will win the game.
There is, however, one caveat.
We can only pick each team once. That means, we cannot pick the Patriots or the Vikings or even our beloved Denver Broncos more than one time. Over the course of the season, we will track the success (or lack thereof) with each of our staff in picking these games along with who they can no longer pick.
Derek Esquibel (1-1) Browns over Raiders
The Browns will start a win streak! The Browns held the high power offenses of the Saints and Steelers to only 21 points, the Raiders struggling offense should get less. Baker gets his first career win.
Mason Yellico (1-1) Chiefs over Broncos
This way, I can have a positive outcome even if the Broncos lose. And I picked the Vikings last week and somehow they got killed, so maybe I’m bad luck.
Cameron Parker (2-0) Raiders over Cleveland
Graham Tiedtke (2-1) Rams over Vikings (picked before last night’s matchup)
They just got destroyed by the Buffalo Bills Sunday.
Andrew Wade (1-1) Seahawks over Cardinals
The Cardinals are starting rookie Josh Rosen for the first time, and he is, unfortunately, going to be in for a very long day against a decent Seahawks defensive line.
Sayre Bedinger (1-1) Lions over Cowboys
For the second time this season, I’m picking against the Cowboys in an eliminator situation. I think the Lions build off of the confidence they gained against the Patriots and absolutely destroy Dallas.
