KDP's 10 For 10: Week Three Means Go Time

The webisphere's best Pick'Em Contest rolls into Week Three full steam ahead.

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!

It's more difficult than you think. We've had almost 450 entries over the first two weeks and no one has yet managed to achieve immortality.

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!

Here's a look at the hallowed Hall of Fame:

Let me take this opportunity to once again thank the guy that has allowed this contest to continue to move forward as my duties have grown over the three years on the front page. BTB member "hookerhome" has been a Godsend to the contest. He's the one keeping track of the 200+ entries every week and then scoring the results and coming up with awesome trend analysis that gives us a great overview on how we see things in the NFL landscape.

Check out his must-read summary from Week 2 here. Also, in case you ever have something that keeps you from the computer late in the week, you can get a jump on the contest in his weekly update post, which normally goes up Tuesday or Wednesday.

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!

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!
