’21 NFL Pick’em Week 15

Through 15 weeks of NFL Pick’em, 7 Rings continue to cling to first overall in the standings. The team’s lead dwindled to just one point recently, but a bounce-back week pushed their lead back to three points.

The highlight of the week had to be the Las Vegas Raiders, who kicked two field goals at the buzzer to secure a win to kick off Monday Night Football. As the only team to pick the Raiders, this upset gave 7 Rings some breathing room with three left on the schedule.
