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, 557 BTB-members and readers took part in the Pick 256 challenge last week.

Week 1 Results

Week 1 proved to be a good week for making picks and four out of five participants got at least ten games right. And it didn't hurt either that the Eagles lost, even if only 40% of participants picked the Eagles to lose. The table below shows the distribution of of the Week 1 results:

Pick 256 Result Distribution, Week 1, 2015

Participants 4
10 28 58 134 154 109 39 17 4

Four participants fell just one game shy of a perfect pick'em week, so they sit atop our Week 1 rankings. Here are the remaining participants who got at least 13 picks right.

Congratulations to the Week 1 winners and good luck trying to repeat this week. For everybody not in the table above, you can find the full details for all participants and more breakdowns later this week in the FanPost section, where our very own Hookerhome will publish the results for all 557 participants.

Until then you can review your results by chekcing out this Excel spreadsheet with all the results:

Week 2 Picks

If you want to be featured on next week's leaderboard, enter your picks before Week 2 kicks off on Thursday night. 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.

The fine print

Submissions have to be in by kickoff time of the Broncos @ Chiefs 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 good two days to submit your picks.

Every week, we'll publish a spreadsheet with all the picks here on BTB, usually on Friday or Saturday.

The entry form contains detailed instruction on how you can change your picks at a later point, read them carefully. You can of course come back at any time before kickoff on Thursday and submit new picks. When there are multiple picks by the same BTB member, our pick tracker will always default to the latest entry.

With all of the technical stuff out of the way, good luck with your picks.
