NFL Week 1 “Beat the House” Results and Recap

One down, 20 more weeks to go. The first week of our exclusive and completely-overhauled Beat the House contest is in the books. Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season had a few surprises and notable performances and always seems to be the hardest week of the year to pick.

To put it bluntly, “The House” got it’s ass kicked right out of the gate. The best set of picks posted by any member was 14… and The House could only muster 7 picks correct. More than 75% of the membership field “Beat the House”.

When the House is beaten, we give away prizes. Usually we award one prize package to the best pick set of the week (after tie breakers) when you Beat the House. Since it is week 1 and we don’t have a difference in total picks to break ties, we’ll award the two entrants with 14 correct picks their prizes.

For christel29 we have a movie prize pack of Parks and Recreation: Season 4 on DVD and the 16 Candles Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Combo pack. jmacscotland will receive Spartacus: Vengeance on Blu Ray as well as the Born on the 4th of July Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Combo pack.

Congrats! The winners will be contacted via their contest registration email address.

Don’t look now, but The House has already posted their picks for week 2. You can review them in the results section of the Beat the House main contest page and make your week 2 picks if you’d like.

Remember, the Thursday Night games are starting already in week 2. Voting doesn’t close until kickoff of the 1:00pm EST games on Sunday, but you still need to get your Thursday night game pick in prior to kickoff of that game to get credit for it.

Your brand new Kegerator, courtesy of is only 20 weeks away! Let’s go!
