The Extra Point Poll: Week One

Every week, during fantasy football season, we're going to run a poll in partnership with XFINITY. The winning answer from the poll will represent us in a contest against other SB Nation communities. Austin Schindel, the XFINITY Sports Guy, is putting together the contest for us each week. Check out his intro below, then go vote in the poll. Also, I am facing off against him in our fantasy football league. I currently do not have a kicker due to late round auto-draft deciding it wasn't necessary. It's a free league, so I'm tempted to see how many games I can win without a kicker. We'll see if I stick with this plan.

This week's poll is about Andrew Luck vs. RG3 in the red zone. If this was about all touchdowns scored in the red zone, I'd go with RG3 because of the rushing. Of course, Luck is athletic in his own right, so maybe it wouldn't be RG3 completely running away with it (you see what I did there?).

Now that I'm in Washington, DC, I'll be getting the Redskins each week. I generally stick to the Red Zone channel on game days (Xfinity sponsorship not-withstanding), but I'll likely flip over at times to FOX for tomorrow's Redskins-Saints game at 10am PT. I figure I can check them out on offense, then flip back to the Red Zone channel for some Luck highlights mixed in.

Hey 49ers Fans,

It's the XFINITY Sports Guy, Austin Schindel (@XFINITYSports) bringing you an exciting new interactive opportunity this NFL season. Each week I will share The Extra Point Poll presented by XFINITY, where we will pit two players or teams against one another in a fantasy football scenario. This is a community based poll and we want the (Insert Blog Name)'s voice to be heard. You will be competing against other communities, so rally the troops and vote each week! This is a perfect way to showcase your community's football knowledge and earn esteemed bragging rights.

Voting each week is easy. Check out my weekly posts recapping last week's action and introducing the new The Extra Point Poll question. Then select the player or team you'd like to see dominate this week.

To start off week one of The Extra Point Poll presented by XFINITY, we will feature a matchup of the top two picks from this past NFL Draft, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. Which rookie quarterback will throw more RedZone TD's in week one? Luck will try to fill the shoes left by Peyton Manning in Indianapolis by taking on the vaunted Bears defense. While Griffin III will look to reenergize the Redskins offense as they travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints. Vote now on whether you think Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III will have more RedZone TD's in week one.

Remember to check back each week to see the season standings. The community with the most correct answers at the end of the season will win the ultimate prize. For insider knowledge throughout the week, follow me @XFINITYSports. Good luck!
