Behind The Steel Curtain, your favorite Pittsburgh Steelers community, is excited to bring you another season of the survivor pool contest, sponsored by DraftKings Sportsbook. Come one, come all, and use your NFL insights to predict the winner of a single game each week, straight-up. You can only predict a team to win once throughout the course of the season, so choose wisely!

Your goal, if you choose to accept it... is to pick one game each week correctly in order to survive and be the last person in the league standing. If you are, you’ll claim that b-e-a-utiful $250 cash prize on the line for the winner.

BTSC survivor pool rules 2023

  • In Week 1, you’ll pick a team to win their matchup. Each of your picks will be made here on this page each week, so be sure to bookmark it for ease of access later on.
  • If they win, you advance to Week 2 and if they lose or finish in a tie, you’re eliminated.
  • Each week that you advance, you’ll pick a new team to win the following week. You are not allowed to pick the same team twice.
  • If you forget to make a pick in a given week, you’re eliminated.
  • The last person (or people) standing wins. If everyone is eliminated before Week 18, the last people to lose win the prize. If there’s a tie, in either the initial or second-chance contests, the prize will be split among the winners.

Get eliminated early? No worries! We’ll be launching a second-chance contest ahead of Week 5 (with a $100 prize on the line).
