KDP's 10 For 10: Week 17 Is For All The Marbles

Our season-long contest reaches it's regular season conclusion with several toss-up games for Week 17.

can you believe another NFL regular season has come and gone? The league has done an incredible job of making it feel like there is one, continuous saga, but  for 20 of the 32 teams, the offseason begins at the final whistle on Sunday.

If you've been a participant in 10 For 10 for the entire season, you know how up-and-down the 16 game stretch has been. You probably had a bead on some teams while others may have confounded you the entire way. Regardless, you've made it this far and the perserverance alone warrants kudos. So, kudos!

We have plenty of unfinished business, namely naming a 2013 Regular Season Champion. Currently, we have two just a game back of our leader, and another 5(!) two games back. What are they fighting for? A place at the top of the Hall of Fame, of course!

Good luck to all, immortality awaits!

Welcome back to the Webisphere's best Pick'Em Competition, where you have the opportunity to live in internet infamy with just 10 correct picks!

The game is simple enough; look over the NFL schedule of games for the week. Find 10 games, including the mandatory Cowboys contest, and select a winner. Make sure you're entry is in the proper format and hit submit. That's it. Simple, right? Not so fast my friend!

The contest is two-fold. Every week you attempt to reach perfection with 10 correct picks. This is, by far, the crux of the contest. Part two is that your scores from each week add up for the season-long contest, which was won by CowboyBaby last season, and JebediahFlibberbrush and BishopWest the first two years of the contest. There can only be one season-long champion, but each week is a chance at infamy!


Hookerhome >> your favorite sidekick

Reaching the end of another year of 10 For 10, I'd be doing a severe disservice if I didn't highlight the contributions of my right-hand-man. Hookerhome has assisted me in keeping track of this contest for the last couple of years and honestly, it probably wouldn't still be running without him. When I started this contest in 2010, it used to be a pain to tabulate 30 people's votes! He does 200! I'm extremely grateful that he takes such a big interest in the minutia of the masses, as his recaps and trend analysis have been some of the more interesting takes on fan group think ways.

So, thank you HH!


Newcomers can win 10 for 10 any single week, and there's still a chance to make gains on the leaders! Get in on it!

Take a look at the leaderboard, six people within two games!! It's Going Down!

Contest Rules

1 - YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. If you leave off the Cowboys game, then only nine other games get counted, and the Cowboys game is scored as "wrong", no matter who wins.

2 - You must pick ONLY 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first nine plus the Cowboys game. If you pick fewer than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.

3 - You must make your entry as a comment, not as a reply to another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.

4 - You must include the entire matchup in your entry. Simply BOLD the team in the matchup you are picking to win. No lists of only the winners you pick. If you want me to take the time to score your entry, take the time to format it correctly. It's easy, just copy and paste all the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick for each game and hit the B button. Oh, please do me and hookerhome a favor - leave the games in the same order, and delete the extra games that you are not picking (leave just the ten that you want scored). It makes tabulation much easier.

5 - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it - there's no turning back.

6 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff in order to try to score 10-for-10. Here are two exceptions:

  • If you're including THURSDAY night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's games, post 'THURSDAY GAME ONLY' in your subject line.
  • If you miss the early games kickoff deadline with your picks, you can still submit picks for games that have not kicked off (as long as the Cowboys haven't kicked off). You won't be able to score 10-for-10 without the early games, but that might help you in the overall season-long race.
  • Don't forget to look for the "10 For 10" hub on the new front page! You'll always be able to find the latest article or Fan Post there for easy access to get your picks in!
