NFL Survivor Pool Stories After Week 16
And just like that, we are on the last week of the 2019 NFL regular season. Time does fly by faster than Lamar Jackson in the open field. Speaking of Jackson, his Baltimore Ravens have their seats reserved in the playoffs, a predicament other teams are envious of. Take for example the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders, who each need a win and favorable results in other matchups on Sunday to sneak into the playoffs. Meanwhile, let’s take a look at some of the stories from Week 16.

The Broncos set one free
The Free Pool gathered the most NFL Survivor Pool entries, but it wasn’t the last to close, as it has finally determined a winner in Week 16, thanks to a win by the Denver Broncos and a shock loss by the Seattle Seahawks to the Arizona Cardinals. User 5090223 rode with Drew Lock and the Broncos against the free-falling Detroit Lions, perhaps thinking that Denver’s rookie quarterback is better than the Lions’ first-year signal-caller.
Down the wire
Unlike the Free Pool, the Prospect and Draftee Pools are still ongoing. Both pools had two survivors following the action in Week 15 and that remains to the case after all that transpired in Week 16. With only a week left to decide whether there will be multiple winners in these pools, it’s going to be interesting to see how each survivor will choose which team to pin their BTC hopes on.
Some games to look forward to in Week 17
Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys
The Redskins must have their bags ready for vacation even before Week 17, but this game is all about the Cowboys, who need to win this match in order to keep their hopes of making the playoffs alive. A Dallas win plus a loss by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday would give the Cowboys a pass to the postseason.
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks
