NFL Survivor Pool Stories After Week 3
Cheers to all Nitrogen Sports’ NFL Survivor Pool players who made it past Week 3 of the NFL season. It’s been a wild ride so far, but here you are, still standing not like some Philadelphia Eagles players.
Daniel Jones had an unforgettable NFL starting debut for the New York Giants, doing what Eli Manning hasn’t done in his years in the league: lead his team to a come-from-behind win after trailing by 18 points. It tells us that no matter how bleak the future is, something good can happen, and it’s a lesson to be learned, even by NFL Survivor Pool players, who are maybe doubting a Week 4 pick they feel are too bold. In the NFL, crazy is normal.
Having said all of that, let’s discuss some of the notable things that have unfolded over the past week across all of Nitrogen Sports Survivor Pools.
|Name of Pool||GTD Prize*||Entries||Survivors*|
|All Pro Pool||$31,480||319||230|
|Hall of Famer Pool||$245,600||249||177|

**Entries left after Week 3.
Overall, including the free secret pools, we have 4,230 entries surviving from the original 10,461 entries or a survival rate of 40.44% through three weeks of the NFL season.
Across all buy-in pools, 2,757 of 4,507 entries are moving on. That’s a 61.2% survival rate and towed by the impressive 76.9% from the high-stakes Nitrogen Pool.
The same can not be said in our main free pool where only 33.2% are still alive. We’re reminding you again: to those who got in free, please step up your game. From an investment of zero Bitcoins, this is your chance to earn free BTC!
Last week, we reported on the huge number of entries (144) made by User 189 in the Hall of Fame Pool. A couple of weeks later, his total live entries are down to 87, or 60.4 percent of his total entries for this pool.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles share the blame for the latest losses of User 189. The Bucs just couldn’t protect an 18-point halftime lead against the New York Giants. The Eagles, meanwhile, were not able to bounce back from a deflating loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2, as they also lost to the Detroit Lions at home last Sunday.
NITROGEN Pool sees no casualties for the first time
All 10 NITROGEN Pool players who survived Week 2 went unschated again in Week 3. Six of them did it by relying on the likeliest team to win, the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys showed no mercy on the Dolphins in a 31-6 home win while also covering the spread.
Two other NITROGEN Pool survivors picked the New England Patriots to crush a New York Jets who had a third-string QB leading them. Burning the Patriots card against a light opponent and this early in the season could be a decision that could haunt them down the road. But who knows? Like we said, anything can happen.
Some games to look forward to in Week 4
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
At this point, there’s barely anything left — if there are even any — of the Browns’ hype. Picking up two losses in three weeks doesn’t scream of ‘Super Bowl’ contenders anymore, and they have a tough assignment ahead of them with a road game against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.
Still, the Browns are teeming with talent, and it’s just a matter of them getting it all together. The Ravens, meanwhile, suffered their first loss of the season in Week 3, as they got beat by the Kansas City Chiefs. Even in a loss, though, the Ravens showed they are no pushovers, as they sure gave the Chiefs a run for their money.
Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints
The Cowboys are 3-0 SU to open the season, but all those wins were against teams that have a combined 1-8 SU record over the last three weeks. The Saints are going to be a better test of Dallas’ legitimacy as a Super Bowl contender. New Orleans are missing Drew Brees, but Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas have shown they can be productive even if it’s just Teddy Bridgewater handling the quarterback duties temporarily.

For all those who have survived, make sure you lock in your picks this week! Good luck!
And for those who were eliminated already (and those who had at least one entry to any buy-in pool this year), we have a nice little surprise for you–the Second Chance Pool!
