’21 NFL Pick’em Week 18

The NFL Pick’em regular season has ended, and 7 Rings finished the 2021 campaign as pool champions! The boys fought all season long and survived through some tough weeks down the stretch to maintain a lead they built upon in the early parts of the season. It took some heroics in weeks 16 and 17 to keep the team in the top spot because a lackluster 9-7 performance in week 18 sealed the deal. 

This year’s win marks the second consecutive season that we managed (Pinstripe Bowl – 2020 fantasy football) took home a championship and some prize money.
