There are 18 weeks in the NFL regular season
Choose one team every week who you think will win their game straight up (No point spreads)
The last entry remaining will be declared the NFL Survivor Pool champion.
There may be a situation where all remaining entries still alive in the pool get eliminated in the same week. If this situation were to occur, consider this an additional chance for all remaining entries. (i.e. If your team loses and all other entries lose too, all teams advance to next week). However, the teams chosen by each entry will be counted and may not be used again.
There may be a situation where the pool champion has been determined, but the remaining winners have not. If a champion is determined but 2nd, 3rd etc place have not been determined, here is the procedure to follow:
-If there are still weeks left in the NFL season, the remaining eligible entries will continue to make picks each week until a winner or winners have been determined
-If the NFL season is over and there is/are no clear cut winner(s) for the remaining payouts, tiebreakers in the winners/tiebreakers section above will be used. If there is still a tie, winnings will be split from those eligible.
IF YOU PLAYED LAST SEASON, when the pool is ready for the new season, you will receive an email invitation from the pool commissioner. In this email will be a link to a renewal signup page. Complete the renewal and your entry will be re-added to the pool for the season.
NOTE: You will still need to pay for your entry/entries in order to finalize your active status in the pool, however, instructions will be provided in the same email on how to renew your entry for the season.

Selections for each week are due prior to the kickoff of each game.
PICKS POSTED BY COMMISH: If you need help making your selections or are having access issues, please contact the commish with your selection before the deadline and he will make it for you.
No Pick: If your pick for a particular week is not submitted at all, you will receive an incorrect pick for that week and it will be treated as if you got your selection wrong.
SOV Adjustment: Since Strength of Victory (SOV) is used as a tiebreaker in this pool, if you do not make a pick during a particular week, the SOV assigned for your entry that week will be -20 points.
If you need help making your selections or are having issues logging on, please contact the commish with your selection before the deadline and he will make it for you. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the pool participants to ensure that your picks are made and are entered before the pick(s) deadline each week.
It is the responsibility of team owners to ensure that no duplicate picks are made each week. If a duplicate pick is made, it will result in a strike for that entry.
NOTE: The software should not allow duplicate picks, however should it happen, your entry will be treated as if no pick was made. (An incorrect pick and -20 SOV points in the standings).
Please double check your pick each week to ensure it is not a duplicate. Especially later in the season when team choices become more difficult.
WHEN ARE SELECTIONS POSTED: Selections are posted immediately after the deadline passes for each game.
WHEN ARE RESULTS POSTED: Results are posted shortly after the conclusion of each game.
