NFL Survivor Pools

What is an NFL Survivor Pool?

The concept of an NFL Survivor Pool (also known as a Elimination, Knockout or Suicide Pool) is an easy one; simply survive from one week to the next by having the team you select win their game.

How Does an NFL Survivor Pool Work?

Participating in an NFL Survivor Pool involves three easy steps:

  1. Pick one team per week which you feel will win their match-up
  2. If the team you chose wins you 'survive' until the following week
  3. Last entry (or entries) standing wins
