Droid Life Annual 2013 NFL Eliminator is Now Open – Winner Takes Home a Phone of Choice

nfl eliminator

In less than a week, the 2013 NFL season officially kicks off with a showdown between the Broncos and Ravens. If you have been a part of the Droid Life community over the last couple of years, you also know that the start of the season means that our annual eliminator challenge is in store. And like in years past, we’re rewarding the end-of-year winner with a phone of choice, valued at up to $650. Since many of us lost out early last year with a week 2 upset, I think I can speak for the crowd when I say that I can’t wait for this year’s challenge to start.

If you aren’t familiar with NFL eliminators, we have some basic rules for you below, along with a link to more in-depth instructions. The basics are:  join for free, pick a winner each week, go the entire season without getting a pick wrong, and you win. It sounds simple, but boy is it tough, especially since you can only use each team once.

Simple rules for those new to eliminator chalenges:

1.  Join the league up above.  Create an entry for yourself.  Get ready to pick winners.
2.  Since this is an eliminator challenge, you only have to pick 1 winner each week.
3.  Remember though, that you only get to use a team one time and cannot pick them to win again.
4.  If you choose correctly each week, you continue to advance.
5.  If you choose incorrectly, you are out.  There are no mulligans in football or this league.
6.  If that didn’t make sense, check out the full “How to Play” rules here.
7.  If we run into a tiebreaker, we will decide a winner based on these rules.


Once again, we are giving away a phone valued at up to $650 to the winner. Once week 17 wraps and the winner is picked, we’ll contact them through their ESPN account to verify everything. Then, it’s up to them to choose a phone.


We’ll try to remind folks to make their picks each week, but cannot guarantee that we’ll remember.  If we do though, it will be on Twitter, so be sure to follow us there. Week 1 starts next Thursday, with the first game between the Ravens and Broncos on September 5.

Good luck!

    Did ANYONE win this?

    So you only need to pick the outcome of one game a week and can’t pick the same team after you have selected them to win a game already? Do you get more points for picking more games? I mean theoretically there are what, 32 teams and 17 weeks, so that’s nearly 2 picks a week. Probably gets easier to become eliminated later though.

  • Mark Schleupner

    I will try to win an iPhone 5s for my son.

  • gr227

    Too lazy to bother signing up for ESPN.

  • MShelbz

    My strategy this season, pick the strongest of whomever is playing the Jags, Jets, or Raiders.

    • Don’t forget Chiefs, as long as the other team isn’t one of the aforementioned teams above 😛

      • Tyler James Edward Hills

        How’s that strategy working out to far? 😉

  • Rocco80

    Been waiting for this.. Made it half way until the chargers lost to the Browns last year … GOOO NINERS!!

  • NexusPhan69

    Go get eliminated!

  • Shane McKeever

    Take Note, the G2 may be the One

  • Alex

    Do we only pick a winner for one game each week, or do we pick a winner of every game each week?

  • TheRobotCow

    • dannyWHITE

      How do you not!?

      • Ryan Ropero

        Maybe I was too general. I do enjoy the xgames.

    • tuname1t

      The beauty of this type of challenge is that with a little statistical research you can usually get pretty far. Oh and btw… GO CHARGERS!! Even if it is a rebuilding year.

      • michael arazan

        Don’t forget to read the injury reports every monday as well

    • Ian

  • Jose Calderon


  • Ben Johnson

    How does 1 team win the whole week? Or do you just choose the game of your choice and then pick the winner there?

    • Tyler Durden


  • MichaelFranz

    Got my first 3 weeks locked!!!

  • Kukreja

    I’m in. Let’s do this!

  • Tyler Durden

    Thank god I’m good with statistics.

  • Jordan

    Nexus 5! Now give it to me 🙂

    • MichaelFranz

      Hey Kellex how about 2 nexus 5s at $299 and $349 🙂

      • Tyler Durden

        Then hopefully it’s 32gb and 64gb 😉

        • CatherineWilliams

          My last pay check
          was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been
          averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t
          believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,

      • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

        His and her Nexus devices or I wont ever hear the end of it lol

    • Adam Truelove

      On Verizon. Make it happen!!!!

    • TheWenger

      My thoughts exactly.

    • MichaelTilton

      I’m making $86 an
      hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was
      averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I’m
      my own boss. This is what I do, http://www.jobs34.cℴℳ

  • Shane Redman

    What if a team goes winless?

    • MichaelFranz

      you dont want to pick them then 🙂

    • sc0rch3d

      pick every team that plays against that team. you don’t have to use them all. 17 weeks, more teams than 17 😛

      • anezarati

        except that they would have to play 3 other teams twice each.

        • Philip A. Kaiser

          Which is why a majority of picks are simply the teams playing against the Raiders, Browns, and Jaguars. lol

          • Tyler Durden

            and the jets, but those people don’t know anything about football when they do that.

        • MShelbz

          Hell I forgot about the Browns…But no betting against the Jets this season seems pretty easy, they are at best a 6-12 team and Rex will be shown the door like he should have last season.

    PHONE OF CHOICE! enough said!
