Boston brothers and big Patriots fans Dave and Rob Gomes are the latest winners of DraftKing's weekly Millionaire Maker competition. The two were presented with a $1 million check on Sunday night, after betting on this week's "Sports Illustrated" cover star, Jonas Gray, to come up big in the Patriots' game against Colts.

Dave and Rob, who split the $27 entry fee, selected Gray with the hopes that history would repeat itself.

"Blount had four TDs versus the Colts last year," Dave said.

"We knew they were going to run the ball," his brother added.

Led by Jonas and his four touchdowns, the brothers' team put up 233.74 fantasy points, landing them in first place in the competition. They beat the runner up by less than four points.

Dave and Rob aren't the only New Englanders to win the prize, though. In October, New Hampshire resident Michael Leavitt took home a $1 million check, also with a little help from the Patriots. Ahead of the team's win against the Bears, Michael selected Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell and Rob Gronkowski for his lineup, earning more than 293 fantasy points and one very big pay day.
