#BlackSunday Cody Parkey Kickoff Distance Tracker and Contest

You folks ready for tonight?

Of course you are. In some situations, the Sunday Night game can be torturous, like having to sit around all day on Week 17 last year, but it has been kinda nice today just to take in some other football.

You guys know the drill with game time about three hours away now:

Tweet at me (@drewBbalis) before kickoff tonight guessing the number of touchbacks Parkey has AND the Giants 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. Field position is rounded to the nearest whole number.

For tonight, I’m rolling with (4,22), and you are cordially invited to make your guess before 8:30 p.m.

Updated Stats: 

  • 32 kickoffs in five games
  • 29 of those kickoffs in the end zone
  • 18 of those 32 kickoffs for touchbacks
  • Average starting field position of 20.75 or 21 if you will

Updated Leaderboard: 

Drew Balis — Three points

Cory Sprankle — Two points

Evan Kalikow — One point

Gavin Steinhubl — One point

Seriously, I don’t want to win my own game. Someone beat me tonight.
