Your Cody Parkey Week 5 Kickoff Distance Tracker and Contest

You know the drill.

We are a bit short on time today, so go ahead and get your guesses in before 1 p.m.

Tweet at me (@drewBbalis) before kickoff today guessing the number of touchbacks Parkey has AND the Rams average starting field position on his kickoffs (far right column of the chart — sans brackets). 

Guessing the correct number of touchbacks is worth one point while predicting the right field position is worth two, so an example would look something like

(@drewBbalis 5, 21) 

That will be my official guess, and you are cordially invited to make yours before kickoff at 1 p.m.

One quick note: Field position will be rounded to the nearest whole number when totaling points (21.4 = 21, 21.5= 22). I have received a few questions about this, and hopefully it leads to more people earning points.

Updated stats: 

  • 25 kickoffs in four games
  • 22 of those 25 kickoffs in the end zone
  • 16 of those 25 kickoffs for touchbacks
  • Average opponent starting field position of 20.56 or 20.6 if you will.

Updated leaderboard: 

1) Cory Sprankle — Two points

2) Evan Kalikow — One point

2) Gavin Steinhubl — One point

2) Drew Balis — One point
