Last year, Tierney went 161-94-1 on straight-up picks, beating the vast majority of experts on NFLPickWatch. A renowned sportswriter who's reported from seven Super Bowls, Tierney is an authority on the Survivor Pool format, which calls for picking one team to win each week but never using the same team twice.
In Week 1 -- when hundreds of thousands of Survivor players blew their entire season by picking the Colts, Eagles or 49ers -- Tierney rolled with the Ravens over the Browns. The result: Baltimore 38, Cleveland 6. Then Tierney advanced with the Steelers (Week 2), Colts (Week 3) and Rams (Week 4).
For Week 5, we can tell you Tierney is not going with the undefeated Seahawks, who are laying a touchdown to Minnesota, or the Cowboys, who are 9.5-point favorites over the winless Giants. "The Seahawks must recover from the longest commute (to Miami) for an NFL game and face the invigorated Vikings, riding high from their first win," he said.
"The Cowboys are fortunate to have one win and are yielding 36.5 points per game, which could breathe life into an offense as static as New York's."
Instead, Tierney is eyeing a team that will CRUISE to victory this week! Using this team will set you up for the rest of the season. You NEED to see who he's going with before locking in your NFL survivor picks!
