Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Contest Week 6

Week 6 is here which means we are over halfway through the entire promotion. If you check out the current leaderboard tab at the top of the page, you can see where you stand in the race for the October prizes and the race for the ultimate prize, a Panini Black Box. KJ has been closing in on Michael G over the past few weeks while plenty of others are still in contention.

This week is our first NFL team theme week with a series of guesses about one NFL team with the prize being from that NFL team. This week’s theme is…the Kansas City Chiefs. How much do you know about the Kansas City Chiefs that will translate to points this week?

The prize? A giant Matt Cassell bobblehead.

Points will be scored this week in numerous ways so make accurate predictions and you could have a ton of points.

How many points will the Kansas City Chiefs score this week? (2 points for bullseye, 1 point for within 4 points)

How many yards will Matt Cassell throw for this week? (4 points for bullseye, 3 points for within 15, 2 points for within 25, 1 point for within 50)

How many yards will Thomas Jones run for this week? (4 points for bullseye, 3 points for within 10, 2 points for within 20, 1 point for within 30)

How many yards will Dwayne Bowe receive for this week? (4 points for bullseye, 3 points for within 10, 2 points for within 20, 1 point for within 30)

How many field goals will Ryan Succop kick this week? (2 points for bullseye, 1 point for within 1)

How many tackles for Derrick Johnson this week? (3 points for bullseye, 2 points for within 2, 1 point for within 4)

How many points will the Chiefs give up this week? (2 points for bullseye, 1 point for within 5 points)

Tie-Breaker: How many pass attempts will Matt Cassell have in this game?

As stated, the winner will receive a nice big Matt Cassell bobblehead. Seriously, the thing is like a foot tall or more and the head is ginormous.

Please make your picks in the comments section and good luck! I’m not sure if this will be a tough one or not…and make sure you click on the links to the official NFL Player of the Day website to learn more about the promotion and so Panini knows you are interested in this promotion!

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!
