Bonus Picks
1. Which player will have the worst rushing average and what will it be? (extra point for average if within 1.5 yards either way, 2 extra points if nailed exactly)
2. Which player will have the longest reception and what will it be? (points awarded using same margin of error calculations as score)
3. Which team will have the best third down efficiency, and what will it be? (extra point if within 5% either way, 2 extra points if nailed exactly)
4. Which team will have the best red zone efficiency, and what will it be? (extra point if within 5% either way, 2 extra points if nailed exactly)

All stats are from the boxscore as listed on NFL.com. All picks are due by 2:55 pm EST on Sunday Jan 22nd. If you nail any of the predictions for average, etc in the bonus picks, even if you don't get the team/player correct, you get a bonus point. If there is a tie where more than one player/team would be correct, points will be awarded to anyone who picks either.

Two questions:
- Do you want us to predict how many points the winning team will will by?
- Is there a minimum carries for question #2 or can a player just have a single carry?

1. Yes, predict the games by winner and score.
2. A single rush/reception is all that's needed to be the correct answer for Bonus Pick 1 or 2. The questions specifically ask for "Player" because the position the player normally plays in is irrelevant.
