NFL Picks Redemption Contest- Tie Game
When I came up with this contest, I didn't worry about tie games in the NFL. Heck, there hadn't been one since 2008 and even if there was one, what were the chances it would be a game one of the contestants picked?
Well, guess what!
There were several of you that picked the 49ers game yesterday, which ended in a 24-24 tie, so how many points, if any, should be awarded?
In the standings, the NFL considers a tie to be 1/2 win and 1/2 loss, so my decision is to award the 49ers 1/2 win, which translates to 5 points for everyone who picked the Niners this week.
