NFL Featured Contest Recap: Week Five

What a time to be a football fan!

Week five was filled with exciting finishes around the league, including three overtime wins and even more last-minute nail-biters.

Washington had Atlanta on its heels, but Kirk Cousins’ late pick-six kept the Falcons undefeated. Andy Dalton and the Bengals were down by 17 points but rallied to knock off Seattle in OT, while Jay Cutler had two fourth-quarter TDs to get the W and add to the Chiefs’ woes. Eli Manning came through in the clutch with a touchdown pass in the back of the end zone to Larry Donnell. And we can’t forget about Michael Vick leading a game-winning drive! Who thought they’d be saying that in 2015?

Luke McCown may have the funny ad, but Josh McCown is the QB that owners wished they had this week. 457 yards, two passing TDs and a rushing TD? Yeah Ricky, we all missed out. And how about Doug Martin? His three TDs and 39.80 points definitely catapulted a lot of owners up the standings.

In our featured contests, 37.8% of entrants landed in the PayoutZone — 40% of entries cashed in the $250K Run & Gun, 39% in the $100K Shotgun, 40% in the $50K Wishbone and 29% in the $10K Wildcat.

$250K Run & Gun

Congratulations to MJohnson86! Antonio Gates as a late-game insurance player was a smart move. Even with the Chargers’ loss, Gates’ big game was just enough to help him edge out a two-point victory in the Run & Gun.

But the winning didn’t end there. MJohnson86 also took home the top prizes in the $100K Shotgun and $50K Wishbone! Ooh, kill ’em! After three big wins this weekend, why not do a little dance?


$10K Wildcat

Bravo, CBK1013! Any lineup with Le’Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman will put up big points. With an extra $750 in his pocket, CBK1013 can grab some friends and celebrate!
