2017 NFL 3 Strikes Challenge
Pretty much the standard Eliminator challenge, but you get additional lives.

RULES
The objective of the challenge is to correctly select a "Winning Pick" for one NFL game each week.

Each week, you must select one team which you believe will be the winner of that game. Please post in thread and bold your pick for that week. If you are correct, you stay alive. However, if your pick for that week loses its game, or you fail to make a pick for a given week, you earn a Strike. If you earn three Strikes, you are eliminated. Once you pick a team, you can't use that team the rest of the season.

The last remaining person wins. If more than one person is left standing after Week 17, the following tiebreaker is used:

1. The person who has the least amount of Strikes
2. The person who has the longest streak of correct picks
3. The person whose Winning Picks have the largest aggregate total score difference over the course of the season.

For example:

The aggregate total for a 3 week season would be 31+21+3 = 55 points.

Week 1: Win 45-14 (31pts)
Week 2: Win 31-10 (21)
Week 3: Win 17-14 (3)

Lock-time
All selections will lock at the scheduled kick-off of each game. Players must make sure their picks are submitted by the scheduled locktime each week. You will not be able to make selections for games that have already locked. Selections submitted after the deadline are considered invalid, and will not be counted as Winning Picks. Entrants who submit selections after the lock time and do not submit another entry for the week will earn a Strike.

Tie Games
In the event a game should end in a tie after overtime, players that had selected teams in the game as their picks for that week will neither be recorded with a Winning Pick or a Strike.

Joining in late
Players have until Week 3 to join.
If you join in Week 2, you start the game with one Strike. If you join in Week 3, you start the game with two Strikes.

All /in

Thanks for doing this again Pablito. Kinda doubt anyone will be able to match D3f3nd3r's last year record of only 1 strike in week 15.

I'll take the Falcons since they face the bears week one. Team that went to super bowl vs team that drafted in top 3. Seems safe to me

No one picked it before, but TB/MIA is no longer available as a pick.
