TVNewser NFL Survivor Pool: Week 1 Results

By Brian Flood 


Gretchen Carlson’s NFL performance didn’t match her impressive NCAA hoops victory.

Week 1 is in the books and six players have already been eliminated from the 2015 TVNewser NFL Survivor Pool. Team Fox News has already lost two participants, with Sandra Smith getting knocked by picking her hometown Chicago Bears and Gretchen Carlson getting tossed for picking the Seattle Seahawks. Carlson is a bit of a shocker, as she won our 2015 NCAA TVNewser Bracket Challenge.

Team CNBC lost Dominic Chu, who also selected the Seahawks to defeat the St. Louis Rams. FBN’s Peter Barnes and CNBC’s Tyler Mathisen both got knocked out by picking the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night. CNN publicist Heather Brown has also been eliminated.
