HOW TO PLAY

Please read the following information and the Official Rules before registering.


The Contests

  • Weekly: The weekly contest includes all regular season pro football games, starting September 7, 2017 and ending December 31, 2017. Each week you pick the pro football teams you think will win that week. For purposes of possible ties, you will be asked to pick the total combined points to be scored by both teams in that week's tiebreaker game (Monday night game or last weekly game).

  • Postseason: The postseason contest includes all wild card games through the championship game. You will pick the pro football teams you think will win the games during the postseason. For purposes of possible ties, you will be asked to pick the total combined points to be scored by both teams in the championship game.

  • Season: Points are recorded for each contestant all season long, from the start of the first regular season game on September 7, 2017 through the championship game on February 4, 2018. Your scores from the weekly contest and the postseason contest will be used to determine your standing in the season contest. Preseason weekly points do not count towards full season points.

  • Grand Prize: Each weekly winner (17 total) and the postseason winner (1) will earn an entry into the Grand Prize Drawing. The drawing will be held after the championship game. Contestants are allowed to earn multiple contest entries.

Scoring and How Winners Are Determined


One point is awarded for each correct pick. There will be seventeen (17) Weekly Contest Winners, one (1) Postseason Winner, one (1) Season 1st Place Winner, one (1) Season 2nd Place Winner, and one (1) Season 3rd Place Winner.

  • Weekly: The contestant with the most points accumulated for a specific week during the regular season is the weekly winner for that specific week. If there is a tie, the tiebreaker is used to determine the winner. Over or under the tiebreaker combined score is used when there is a tied combined score. The under score is awarded the win. If there is still a tie, a random drawing between the tied contestants will be held to determine the winner.

  • Postseason: The contestant with the most points accumulated through the postseason contest period is the postseason contest winner. If there is a tie, the combined total score in the Championship Game will be used to determine the tiebreaker. Over or under the tiebreaker combined score is used when there is a tied combined score. The under score is awarded the win. If there is still a tie, a random drawing between the tied contestants will be held to determine the winner.

  • Season: The contestants with the most points accumulated through the weekly contest and the postseason contest are the season contest winners. Prizes are awarded to the top three (3) scorers. If there is a tie, the combined total score in the Championship Game will be used to determine the tiebreaker. Over or under the tiebreaker combined score is used when there is a tied combined score. The under score is awarded the win. If there is still a tie, a random drawing between the tied contestants will be held to determine the winner.

Making Picks and Game Deadlines

  • All games listed are eastern time.

  • Email reminders will be sent reminding you to make your picks for the week.

  • Game picks must be submitted before the scheduled start of the game(s). See schedule for cut off times. (Example: It is 2:30 p.m. est on Sunday. Six games started at 1:00 p.m est. You can login to make your picks, but the selection tool for the games that have started are disabled. You can still make your picks for the games that start at 4:00 p.m. est and later.)

  • Picks for regular season games sheduled later than the upcoming week cannot be made. Once all of the games have started for a given week, only the next week of games are automatically made available for picking.

  • You can also login and modify your picks as long as the game has not been played or started.

  • If a game has been played or started, the option to select the team is disabled.

  • If you forgot about a Thursday or Saturday game or did not get your picks made before the early Sunday games started, you may still make your picks on the remaining games for that week. See schedule for cut off times.

  • This is a weekly contest as well as a season long contest; so even if you did not get to make picks on the early games, make your picks on the late games so you can accumulate more points for the season.

  • Remember to check the schedule; some regular season games are played on Thursdays and Saturdays. Some preseason games are also played on Wednesdays and Fridays.
