Gridiron Gold has returned for the 2015 pro football season from KOWB and Modern Printing.

Week 3 was the closest in terms of those vying for the prize money. Seven entries tied for the top card with two incorrect picks. All seven correctly selected the Packers to win the Monday night tie-breaker game. In order to award the prizes, we went to the point's tie-breaker to determine first place. Second place had to go to a drawing for second consecutive week.

The week 3 winner is Joe Hines of Laramie, who earns first place and the $50 prize. He had an entry with only two misses and was closest on the point's tie-breaker from the Monday Night tie-breaker game.

For second place, two more entries both took the Packers and were both tied for next closest on the point's tie-breaker. From the tie-break drawing between those two entries, the second place entry of Anamaria Sandoval of Laramie was selected. She wins the $25 prize.

In its' 30th year, Gridiron Gold is the weekly pro football pick 'em contest that gives you a chance to win $5000 each week. We just got started, so there's many more chances to win.

The best card each week wins $50, while second place receives $25.
