Here's how it works. Each week you pick one team to lose their game. You can only pick a team once per season. If a team you pick wins or ties, you are eliminated. Deadline for picks is the first kickoff on Sunday, no exceptions. If you want to pick a Thursday or Saturday game, you must pick before kickoff of that game. If you forgot to pick by first kickoff on Sunday and want to pick the late game or MNF, you are out of luck. If you miss a week, you are eliminated.
