Last One Standing

The Dolphins are a popular pick this week to repeat their earlier victory against the Jets.

As esteemed ESPN colleague Herm Edwards likes to say, "You play to win the game." In the case of Eliminator Challenge, you play to pick the winner of one NFL game each week straight up. You don't have to worry about a point spread here. If you can successfully pick a winning team for all 17 weeks of the season, you're in good shape to win the grand prize.

Ah, but there's a catch. Once you pick a team, you can't use that team the rest of the season. So you'll have to make your decisions wisely and strategically. Do you pick one of the Super Bowl favorites right away or hold on to them as long as possible? Do you want to take a chance on a potential cellar dweller in a potentially favorable matchup? Remember, you're out of the running for the grand prize once you lose a game.

In addition to competing against all fans, you can also form groups to see who among your friends and family can put together the longest streak.

So get in the game now and see if you can keep up your own winning streak.
