Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

In 2010, the New York Jets hosted Baltimore to begin the year, and lost 10-9. Since then, they have hosted a game in Week 1 each and every year, defeating Dallas, Buffalo, Tampa Bay, Oakland, and Cleveland along the way.

Naturally, for this question, I took the team the Jets hosted in Week 1. And I paid the price.



I have started this year's game on the wrong foot. SirRawrsALot can verify that my Week 1 selection was the Cincinnati Bengals.

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

This week, out of our 97 entrants, 71 were correct. That means myself and 25 others join our picks by starting off 0-1.

The 26 incorrect entrants took a total of 6 different teams.

Incorrects this week will be ranked by margin of victory in Week 1, going from most points (28) to fewest (1).

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

This week's worst answer was chosen by 3 of you.

Last season, this team hosted Week 1's final game. They won the game at home as an underdog, holding their opponents without a TD. And Carlos Hyde ran for 2 TD's.

Literally the same thing happened this year. Only the margin of victory was bigger.

3 of you failed with the team in top spot of the NFC West. You took.....

INCORRECT ANSWER - The San Francisco 49ers

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

Next, a team chosen by 2 of you.

At one point on Sunday, this team trailed 24-3 at home, and looked like a sure right answer. But then San Diego couldn't stop Alex Smith, and he kept finding Spencer Ware, and.....well you know the rest.

atp0409 and GusJohnsonGOAT put their faith in the San Diego Chargers. They should have known better. They chose.....

INCORRECT ANSWER - The Kansas City Chiefs

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

Next, another team taken by 3 of you.

2016 marked the fourth straight year this team has started its season on the road. After losses in 2013 and 2014, they beat Chicago by 8 to begin last year. And despite trailing on Sunday, and having their star QB throw for only 199 yards, and having more head-scratching coaching decisions, they won.

On Sunday, they will be the first visitors to U.S. Bank Stadium. But for now, they are a wrong answer. 3 of you are stuck with sour cheese, you went with.....

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

Our most popular incorrect lost by 2 points.

This team was a near-double-digit underdog on Sunday, but still prevailed. It was close, and they needed a late missed FG to win, but win they did. And they are the only 1-0 team in the AFC East (again).

13 of you took the team missing its starting QB for 25% of the season. You chose.....

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

Of the 16 teams to start 1-0 last year, 10 of them lost their season-openers this year.

The 71 correct entrants took all 10 possible correct answers.

There are no unplayed aces in Week 1. Congratulations!

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

As a footnote, all 10 possible correct answers were chosen, as were all 6 possible incorrect answers.

The 97 entrants took all 16 possible answers, and no one joined THE CLUB. I don't remember a question before where each and every potential answer was selected.

I'm sure the increased # of entrants has something to do with that though.

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

The SHEEP this week is worth 21 points.

Last year, this team managed a 7-point road win to open the season, and stayed somewhat close to home. This year, they started on the road again, but traveled cross-country to take on their opponent.

They held their opponents to 12 points, but it wasn't enough. Kenny Stills dropped a sure TD in the second quarter, as Seattle won yet another game they had no business winning. Maybe there is something in that Recovery Water after all.

21 of you SHEEPed with.....

CORRECT ANSWER

The Miami Dolphins
21 points

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

The next team is worth 15 points.

Last year, this team started off at home, with a big comeback victory. In Week 1 this year, this team was again involved in a game where the home team came from behind.

But we shouldn't be so surprised this team lost. At this venue in 2014, this team couldn't beat Chase Daniel to secure a playoff spot.

15 of you took.....

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

Next up is a 9-point answer.

As I indicated earlier, between 2011 and 2015, this team hosted and beat all their opponents in Week 1. This year though was a different story.

They lost by 1 after missing an XP and having a FG attempt blocked. And wherever A.J. Green was, their defense wasn't.

9 of you selected.....

CORRECT ANSWER

The New York Jets
9 points
