Sean Kinney overtook guitarist Jerry Cantrell last week to earn the top seed, lining the drummer up against singer William DuVall in the semifinal game that takes place over the next two weeks of the NFL season.

Kinney's Team Nosering (8-5) tied Cantrell's for first overall but won the tiebreaker because it scored more points (1,226 compared with Cantrell's 1,194).
