|"Regulars" are participants who haven't missed a single week in our challenge, "Part-Timers" received one or more freebies (as denoted by the asterisks) depending on the number of weeks they missed.|
This award goes to those participants who correctly predict the outcome of 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 eight correct picks so far. 89 participants did just that, but they were out-picked by six BTB members who picked nine Cowboys games correctly. Here are your six Cowboys Whisperers after Week 6:

The fine print
Submissions for the challenge have to be in by the start of the Cowboys game on Thursday at 8:30 pm ET. To keep a level playing field for everybody, late submissions will not be accepted (all entries are time-stamped). This gives you a little over two days for your pick submission. In case of multiple submissions, we will always use the last submission as the final and valid one.
Here's how our missed game policy works:
- Three weeks of full participation in Pick 256 will qualify participants for one freebie for a missed week. Six weeks of full participation qualifies for two freebies for missed weeks and so on. The maximum amount of possible freebies is four over the entire season.
- The freebie points awarded for a missed week will always be the average of all participants for the weeks missed. Missing weeks will be filled in ascending order from Week 1 through Week 17.
- Participants who receive a freebie will be marked with an asterisk in our results tables. Two freebies mean two asterisks, and so on.
A spreadsheet with all the picks for Week 14 will be published here on BTB on Friday or Saturday. Good luck with your picks.
