Pick 256 Challenge Results & Leaderboard: Who Are This Year's Cowboys Whisperers?

We take a look at last week's winners as well as the season leaders, and remind you to submit your picks for Week 7.

Ronald Martinez

Pick 256 is a season-long contest in which BTB members and readers get to pick the straight-up winners for all games each week. Overall, 328 BTB-members took part in the Pick 256 challenge last week.

Week 7 Picks

Click on the link below and you'll be taken directly to the Pick 256 entry form where you can select the teams you like for the win.

The link above should auto-fill your BTB user name into the entry form (in most cases). In some cases, the link hasn't worked properly, so here's an alternative link that works without the auto-fill - just remember to spell your username correctly.

Alternative Pick 256 Entry Form

If you prefer not to use your BTB user name, or are not a BTB member, go ahead and enter a name of your choosing, but try to stick with that name throughout the season.

With all of that that out of the way, on to last week's results.

Cowboys Whisperer

This award goes to those participants who correctly predict the most Cowboys games over the course of the season. If you had simply picked the Cowboys to win every game so far, you'd have five correct picks. 102 participants did just that, but they were out-picked by three BTB members who picked against the Cowboys in the season opener and have picked every game for the Cowboys since - making them a perfect 6-0 in their Cowboys picks. Here are your three Cowboys Whisperers after Week 6:

  • CowboysNation
  • Nord15
  • Tennessee_Jed

Missing Weeks

We promised we'd find a way to fill up the totals for participants who missed a week here or there. For a number of reasons, that is proving a lot more difficult than anticipated, so we won't yet include totals with "freebies" added today. Hopefully we'll get that sorted by next week.

The fine print

Submissions for the challenge have to be in by kickoff time of the Thursday Night game, which kicks off at 8:25 pm ET on Thursday. To keep a level playing field for everybody, late submissions will not be accepted (all entries are time-stamped). This gives you a two to three day window for your pick submission. In case of multiple submissions, we will always use the last submission as the final and valid one.

A spreadsheet with all the picks will be published here on BTB on Friday or Saturday. Good luck with your picks.
