6 of the 7 biggest favourites for Week 2 at this time are teams that lost in Week 1.

A couple of years ago ESPN didn't have any cut off for losing eliminator contestants. You were out of contention if you had a losing pick but you could still make picks all season. That final year I started 0-3. I had a 17 point favourite lose in Week 1 and I followed it up to 2 losing 10 point favourites in the next 2 weeks. I finished 10-6 in Survivor!
I think last year we could keep picking, but you wouldn't win. I was ready to continue picking. Disappointed to be honest.

LOL its okay! I still had fun. I did ok in the other two games. I hope I can still play next season.
This was an odd year. I've never seen so many drop out week 1. As long as you're here, we'll do another. I tried to see if I could start a losers bracket, but it wouldn't let me.

How does the eliminator pool work? I just picked teams like I did in the other games.

4 advance, 5 pending on the remaining games (Best guess all took Buffalo), and @molsaniceman out with the Bengals.
2 Rams & 2 Broncos. I thought Rams and Browns were the smart picks. Broncos was a good alternative but they're a better choice in Week 5 at home to the Jets.

33 contestants but after just 3 weeks it's down to Flair vs Hogan.

lol. I'm using the same picks in another Survivor at SBR, but there ties count as a loss. I needed that Crosby kick. I'd like to think Survivor means a bit more because i've put some time into planning future picks. Lmao at pick'em this year. 35 straight up wins but I have 40 coin-flip winners on the spread. Just random variance on my part. Commiserations to those on the flip side of the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.
