Contest tracker: 2 entries still battling in Last Man Standing

No one wants to be the Second-To-Last Man Standing.

The final two entries in Station Casinos’ NFL Last Man Standing contest had winning picks last week, so the competition continues to Week 12.

The winner gets $150,000, and second place gets nothing.

Choose wisely.
