Pick 256 Challenge Results & Leaderboard: Get Your Picks In For Week 5!

We are four weeks into our Pick 256 Challenge and we're beginning to see some separation at the top of our season leaderboard. We take a look at last week's winners as well as the season leaders, and remind you to submit your picks for Week 5.

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, 325 BTB-members took part in the Pick 256 challenge last week.

Week 5 Picks

If you don't want to read through all of this article just to get to the link for the Week 4 pick submissions, then just 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 that out of the way, on to last week's results.

Week 4 Results

With just 13 games to pick, it was a real challenge to come up with double-digit win totals, and only five participants managed that feat.

Congratulations to the winners and good luck trying to repeat this week. For everybody not in one of the tables above, you can find the full details for all participants and more breakdowns in the Fanpost section later today, courtesy of the tireless work of our very own Hookerhome.

The fine print

Submissions for the challenge have to be in by kickoff time of the Vikings @ Packers 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.
