    2019 TAT NFL Challenge: Intro and Week 1

    Hello and welcome to the 2019 TAT NFL Challenge! We'll stick with the confidence pool format for the contest for another year.

    In case you need a refresher, or if you want to join, it's not too difficult. Suppose there are n games in a given week. You rank your confidence in a pick from 1 (least confident) to n (most confident).

    We are going to do a twist on that idea in order to make missing Thursday games less costly: suppose there are n games in a week, m of which occur before Sunday. The games occurring before Sunday will all be worth m points, and you decide how to rank the remaining n-m games from m+1 to n. In layman's terms, this usually works out to be that the one Thursday game is worth 1 point, and you rank the remaining games from 2 to 16 (or less than 16 if teams have byes). Here's an example of how you might post your picks:

    Philadelphia 1
    Pittsburgh 5
    Indianapolis 2
    Tennessee 6
    San Francisco 11
    New England 3
    New Orleans 9
    Jacksonville 14
    Baltimore 16
    Kansas City 10
    Seattle 4
    Arizona 7
    Carolina 8
    Chicago 12
    NY Jets 13
    LA Rams 15

    This will extend into the playoffs as well, with weights 16-12-8-4 for the wild card, 20-15-10-5 for the divisional round, 24-12 for the conference championships, and 30 for the Super Bowl.

    Without further ado, here are the games for week 1. Picks for Green Bay at Chicago are due Thursday, September 5th at 8:20 PM ET. All others are due Sunday, September 8th at 1 PM ET.

    Green Bay at Chicago (worth 1 point)
    Kansas City at Jacksonville
    Atlanta at Minnesota
    Tennessee at Cleveland
    Buffalo at NY Jets
    Baltimore at Miami
    Washington at Philadelphia
    LA Rams at Carolina
    Indianapolis at LA Chargers
    Cincinnati at Seattle
    NY Giants at Dallas
    San Francisco at Tampa Bay
    Detroit at Arizona
    Pittsburgh at New England
    Houston at New Orleans
    Denver at Oakland
