UPDATE: The link should allow you to enter your score now — fixed the issue that was telling some of you that you already submitted. So try again now and officially submit it through the link so that we can make sure it gets counted.
As many of you know, we’ve designed the Official Broncos Blog Scoring Contest for the 2012 season.
I regret not mentioning a key contributor last week in the development of the contest — baylinorcrush. He got the contest up and running in the first place, and was the reason it has lasted so long and become so popular.
We wanted to help make it easier to keep track of this season. So thanks to baylinorcrush as well as killerkod for helping throughout the process.
Without further ado, let’s get to the results from Week 1.
After Week 1, there were five predictions that were virtually right on the money. To recap, the Broncos beat the Steelers 31-19.
Caramelloo, Jake, Jamie A007, Orange Crush and Keith Kahler all submitted predictions of 31-20, so all receive first-place points.
In second were four more predictions — this time 31-17 (two points off) — by MileHighDoom, TicoBroncoFan, TCM and Barnstormer.
In third place was a prediction of 31-16 by Bud Buecher. He guessed the Broncos’ score correctly and was only off by three for Pittsburgh.
So, after one week of the scoring contest, here is the leaderboard:
caramelloo 7 points
Jake 7 points
Jamie A007 7 points
Orange Crush 7 points
Keith Kahler 7 points
MileHighDoom 5 points
TicoBroncoFan 5 points
TCM 5 points
Barnstormer 5 points
Bud Buecher 3 points
The contest has been open for Week 2 since Tuesday at noon, so make sure you get your prediction in.
Here are the only rules: your submission for the upcoming game will only be accepted starting Tuesday at noon leading up to the game. The cutoff time, obviously, is kickoff. In other words, we won’t accept any submissions after kickoff of each game, and don’t start predicting for the following game until Tuesday at noon. One prediction per blogger, please.
The top three bloggers closest to the score each week (by total points off from the actual score) get points. First place = 7 points, second place = 5 points, third place = 3 points. Blogger must pick the winning team to get points.
As always, good luck!
