Randy Mechels Wins 2022 NFFC Turkey Bonanza & $5,000

Post by Greg Ambrosius » Sat Nov 26, 2022 11:06 am

Randy Mechels of Long Prairie, Minnesota won the 2022 NFFC Turkey Day Bonanza and the $5,000 grand prize as he beat a record field of 450 teams in this one-day contest. It was another close contest as Randy edged Kirby Morgenstern by just two-tenths of a point for the title. Jacob Carson, Scott Zeidman and Kyle Scruggs rounded out the Top 5 as we paid the Top 32 teams overall.

Randy was led by Josh Allen, Justin Jefferson and Amon-Ra St. Brown. It was two Vikings' fans battling for the title at the end and Randy came through with the help of Justin Jefferson, T.J. Hockenson, the Vikings' defense and the Patriots' kicker. Last year the winning margin was a tenth of a point, so this marks the second year in a row that the Turkey Day Bonanza was decided by two-tenths of a point or less.

What a great contest and we'll bring it back next year with an even bigger grand prize. We also will have a one-day NBA contest on Christmas Day with the same type of format, so go to playnfbkc.com for the Christmas Day Bonanza there. Thanks all and enjoy.

Here's the final standings from this year's contest:

It really did come down to the wire, as Kirby was ahead by 0.8 until the Vikings got that last sack with less than a minute left! PS -- Kirby is a die-hard Raider fan, so the Viking fan did prevail...
