Last weekend, our weekly NFL Pick 7 pool was won by one lucky punter. Starting with over 1,000 units, our punter was the last 0.1 units standing after a week of tight results across America.
Early Kick Offs
The pool began with 3 games kicking off at 18:00 on Sunday. The Tennessee Titans visited Indianapolis. After the 1st quarter it was the hosts who took a commanding 14-0 lead. This lead was maintained heading into half time with both teams scoring 7 points in the 2nd quarter. The Colts hung on for a 24-17 win.
The New York Giants played host to the Chicago Bears on the East coast. Despite many people backing the Giants to win comfortably, the Bears started stronger and went into half time leading 16-9. But a 3rd quarter turn around by the Giants, in which they scored 13 points to nil, carried them to a 22-16 victory.
In the final early game, the Arizona Cardinals visited a Minnesota Vikings side on a 4 game losing streak. Early on, the Vikings managed to get their nose in front to take a 20-17 lead at the end of the 2nd quarter. 10 points in the 3rd quarter helped the Vikings hold on and take the win 30-24.
Following these games, the pool contained 7.39 units.

The first of the evening games saw the Miami Dolphins visit the new home of the Rams in Los Angeles. The home team took a 7-0 lead into half time in a low scoring affair. But a 4th quarter surge from the Dolphins, saw them pick up 14 points in the final quarter and the 14-10 win.
