Former Independent Editor Scott Jordan has become the first two-time winner of The IND’s weekly NFL pick ’em contest. Jordan is assured a satisfying New Year’s Eve with his bottle of Rank Wildcat Rum, a six pack of Bayou Teche Brewing Company beer, a $100 gift card to Brothers on the Blvd and a $50 gift card to Maxwell’s Market after correctly picking 11 of 16 NFL games.
Among our VIP pickers, four tied for the top spot with 10 correct picks: Julie Gauthier of BBR, Ryan Baniewicz and Kevin Foote, both of ESPN 1420 AM, and KATC Sports Director Travis Webb. By placing among the top pickers for Week 16, Gauthier maintains her overall lead in the standings among our Very Important Pickers, one of whom will be awarded a super-awesome prize at the end of the season.
