2011 NFL Player of the Day Promotion – Contest #1

 

This is contest #1 of the 2011 Panini NFL Player of the Day promotion here on Sports Card Blog. This is going to be a “Beat the Blogger” contest in which you are playing against me for points.

This “Beat the Blogger” contest will be simple. Pick the winners of the Week 2 NFL games. Each game you get correct is worth one point for this contest. The winner receives 5 points toward the grand prizes. Second place gets 4 points, third place gets 3 points, fourth place gets 2 points, and everyone who enters gets 1 point.

If you “Beat the Blogger”, you will get 2 bonus points that goes towards the grand prizes. To make things a little harder for me, I must choose at least 3 upsets according to Yahoo! Pick’em. You can pick whoever you want for each game, you have no restrictions.

Here are the games for Week 2, my picks are in  bold:

Oakland at Buffalo

Kansas City at Detroit (Blogger upset pick)

Baltimore at Tennessee

Cleveland at Indianapolis (Blogger upset pick)

Tampa Bay at Minnesota (Blogger upset pick)

Chicago at New Orleans

Jacksonville at New York Jets

Seattle at Pittsburgh

Arizona at Washington

Green Bay at Carolina

Dallas at San Francisco

Cincinnati at Denver

Houston at Miami

San Diego at New England

Philadelphia at Atlanta

St. Louis at New York Giants

Tie-breaker for prize: Who passes for the most passing yards and how many yards does he pass for? If you have the most points and guess the correct quarterback and are closest to the actual number, you will win the prize.

I have picked at least three upsets and they are noted above. Remember, you can pick whoever you want.

The prize for the winner of this contest is the official 2011 Panini NFL Player of the Day T-Shirt and a set of 2011 Panini NFL Player of the Day trading cards.* (Subject to change if they change prizes on me since I don’t have them in hand yet)

Points will be added to the leaderboard on Tuesday. Make sure to tell your friends and make sure you check out the 2011 Panini NFL Player of the Day website where you can learn how to enter for a chance to spend the day with an NFL player!

(Note: One entry per household, please! And no editing, I’ll be writing down your picks the night before the first game of the week.)

Remember, the grand prizes (Panini Black Box, Auto mini-helmet, box of Prestige football) will be won by the top people with the most points at the end of this promotion. So you better enter every week for the best chance to win!
