’21 NFL Pick’em Week 11

Right before week 11 kicked off, the manager of Rick Rolled messaged to compliment 7 Rings on the success they have had so far in this year’s Pick’em pool. Team management brushed it off because the season is far from over, and one week’s five-point lead can all but disappear, which can lead to a shuffle in the standings.

The conversation clearly affected this week’s selections as 7 Rings had their worst week of the season and witnessed their comfortable lead atop the standings dwindle down to almost nothing. With only a few weeks left to play, the team really has its back against the walls.
