We differ only on these. I interpreted the question to mean how many successful challenges there would be, so would also like clarification.

A Coach throws the red flag... The referees decide the play is not reviewable, or it is. (Example: the "Fumble" two weeks ago that clearly was, but not reviewable because it was not in the End-Zone) Any challange was not allowed. So therefore did not qualify towards "COACH'S CHALLENGES ALLOWED". It does NOT mean how many are successful or fail.

edited:

ALLOW: Coach throws the flag, the Ref's allow the challenge to proceed (The challenge is accounted)
DENIED: Coach throws the flag, the ref's deny the challenge to proceed. (NO challenge)
SECCESS: Coach throws the flag, the challenge is ALLOWED and the Coach WINS the challenge. (Challenge is accounted)
FAILURE: Coach throws the flag, the challenge is ALLOWED and the Coach LOSES the challenge. (Challenge is accounted)

That's a very odd tiebreaker question.. Something where the total will probably be only somewhere between 1 and 4 or 5. Why not use something that would actually break a tie? Most pools use total points scored in the game

Also, you could've just said Coaches Challenges. It would've been implied that if they throw the red flag and it's not a challengable play, that it doesn't count
