2015 DL Football Eliminator Challenge is Open! Winner Takes Home a Phone of Choice

It’s time! The DL Football Eliminator Challenge is now open for the 2015 season! For the 5th year in a row, our winner will walk away with a phone of their choice.

For those new to NFL eliminator challenges, they work like this. You pick one winner each week out of all of the games being played. If your team wins, you move on to the next week. Just keep in mind that you can only choose a team one time per season, so there is some strategy involved. With that said, by no means are these challenges as intense as fantasy football or weekly pick’em challenges. This is the simplest form of an NFL challenge you can participate in.

The season kicks off this Thursday (yes, in 2 days), so you will want to sign-up now. We will try our best to remind you throughout the next couple of days to sign-up, though.

There is no cost to you, yet you can win a phone of choice. Ready to sign-up?  (more…)

Reminder: DL NFL Eliminator Challenge is Open, First Game is Tonight!

As a quick reminder, be sure to go sign-up for the DL NFL Eliminator Challenge! The first NFL game of the season is tonight, and you won’t want to miss out on week 1’s pick.

For those not familiar, just know that this is the simplest NFL contest you can be a part of that only requires you to pick the winner of a single game each week of the season. If you come away as the top dog, you get a phone of choice, purchased by DL.

All the info you need to get signed up can be found at this post.

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

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.

Google Now Fixes Bug That Kept Us from Seeing Football Scores This Weekend

If you are like me and looked down at your phone a few moments ago, you might have noticed that Google Now had a notification telling you that your favorite NFL team won or lost their game in the past few days. Google rolled out NFL teams to the Sports card a few weeks back but come Sunday, no scores would show up.

An XDA thread that has been brewing over the past few days said that Google knew about the problem and was investigating it and it seems like that was true. You now can get recaps and highlights for your teams from the cards in Google Now since it seems like Google has fixed this bug.

How many of you are still in the Droid Life Eliminator challenge after this week?
