NFL Pick ‘Em Rules
The Registration Process
Each participant must complete the registration process to become eligible to play. The registration is a simple process that involves submitting a user’s contact information, team name creation, and password selection. Once this process is completed, users will be directed to the home page where they can participate in the contest.
Playing the Game
Each week, the game operator will display the match-ups on the “make picks” page. The season starts with the first week 1 game and ends on the last week 17 game. All picks must be made prior to 1pm ET on Sunday each week. Early games must be selected prior to the start of that early game. Players can save their early game pick and then make changes to Sunday games before 1pm ET on Sunday.
Each week the scores will be calculated and posted for viewing. The “Results” tab will detail a user’s weekly and cumulative performance.
Winning the Game
Each week, every users score is posted on the standings page. Players with the most points are listed at the top. Any tie will be broken by a name draw from all highest scores. It is possible that the “default game winner” may not have a prize awarded by the media partner for their achievement. The Prize Winner will be contacted via the information provided at registration. If wrong information is provided, or winner cannot be contacted for any reason, the draw process will take place again with the remaining winners.
