NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 13
by Matt Severance - 12/1/2009
I don’t know about you, but I’m counting my Survivor Pool money already. I know, you should never put the horse before the cart, but that cash sure would come in handy for a little Christmas shopping! Let’s hope I didn’t just jinx myself and those of you following my advice.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 12
by Matt Severance - 11/25/2009
Thank you, Chiefs. Thank you, Raiders. Here’s guessing that Kansas City’s upset of Pittsburgh and/or Oakland’s surprise of Cincinnati last week certainly whittled down your competition in your NFL Survivor Pool.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 11
by Matt Severance - 11/18/2009
I warned against you picking Denver at Washington, Atlanta at Carolina and Dallas at Green Bay, and all three visiting favorites lost. I also said to stay away from Pittsburgh against Cincinnati, and the Bengals completed the season sweep.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 10
by Matt Severance - 11/11/2009
The Survivor Pools really start to get interesting this week, not only because you have made it to a double-digit week and are still kicking, but also because the NFL Network’s Thursday package kicks off this week (Bears and 49ers) and the bye weeks are now all but over – just the Giants and Texans on the bye in Week 10, and then it’s done.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 9
by Matt Severance - 11/4/2009
Week 8 in the NFL was another very chalk week of results. Maybe Carolina beating Arizona knocked a player or two out of your Suicide Pool, but that’s the only game I would call truly surprising last week. I recommended the Chargers, and they beat Oakland for the 13th straight game.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 8

Last week was a definite chalk week in the NFL, with only two possible upsets likely to have affected anyone in your Suicide Pool: the Cardinals winning at the New York Giants and the Bills winning at Carolina.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 7
by Matt Severance - 10/21/2009
What is it with Week 6 and the Washington Redskins? Last year in Week 6, the Skins knocked me out of the Survivor Pool with a home loss to the dismal Rams. And then last week, Washington lost at home to the winless Chiefs. Thankfully, we didn’t recommend the Redskins, whom we have already used in our 2009 Survivor Pool Picks. But there may have been a few folks in your pool who did play Washington last week and are now out.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 6
by Matt Severance - 10/14/2009
Last week we recommended the Eagles, and they had no trouble at all with the Tampa Bay Bucs. We also included the Giants, Steelers, Panthers and Ravens as five to “swear by” with only the Ravens losing. In the “scared by” category, we hit on three teams we warned you not to play on: the Patriots at Denver, the Bills against Cleveland and the Jets at Miami.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 5
by Matt Severance - 10/7/2009
Last week my top pick for your Survivor Pools was the Houston Texans, which is the first time I have recommended a below-.500 team so far in the two years I have been doing this column. But of course the Texans had no trouble with an Oakland offense that is the worst in the NFL in terms of yards per game.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 4
by Matt Severance - 9/30/2009
Let’s just reiterate that the only thing that matters in a Survivor Pool is to advance. I throw out this disclaimer because other than recommending the Baltimore Ravens last week as the top choice, my advice was pretty shoddy. On to our Week 4 picks, which is the first week of several where byes are a factor. And it’s one of those weeks where there appear to be a lot of fairly even matchups.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 3
by Matt Severance - 9/23/2009
Those #&@*$#& Redskins! They almost knocked me out of my Survivor Pool for the second year in a row at home against the inept St. Louis Rams. Washington couldn’t even manage a single touchdown against the Rams this time but did hang on for a 9-7 victory. Crisis averted!
NFL Survivor Pool Picks: Week 2
by Matt Severance - 9/17/2009
I had my lead for this story all but written. I was watching the “Monday Night Football” opener this week, and it seemed a sure thing that the Buffalo Bills were going to upset the New England Patriots – just as I warned you might happen in last week’s Survivor Pool story. No doubt a Pats’ loss would have eliminated at least a few members of your pool, and I felt a small sense of superiority or at least sageness (that a word?) … and then Leodis McKelvin had a Leon Lett moment by trying to return a kickoff with less than two minutes left.

Hello readers, we are back this year with our weekly NFL Survivor Pool advice. If you are reading this, I am going to assume you know what a Survivor Pool is, but if not check out some archived stories here on Doc’s for tips on how to run one, basic rules, etc.
NFL Survivor Pool Rules

Yesterday here at Doc’s, I wrote a very basic article for those beginners wondering how to run an NFL survivor pool this year. I suppose I am the unofficial expert on this subject currently on the site, as I was the survivor pool columnist in 2008 and will be back again this year giving my weekly advice.
How to Run an NFL Survivor Pool

If you have been charged with or have the initiative to set up an NFL survivor pool, I’m here to give you a few pointers if it’s your first time. You may remember my byline from a series of weekly 2008 survivor pool articles here on Doc’s – and I will be writing those again this year. Hopefully I made a few of you a bit of money.
