How to Play

Just 6 easy steps and you'll be enjoying the best football contest online...

Step #1: Create an Account

Head over to the Registration page and complete the information to create your own account. Why do we collect all that info? So we can contact you if and when you win a prize. Don't worry, we don't give out your information to anyone!

Step #2: Research the match-ups

Each week we provide you with weekly news items about pro football from Athlon Sports, the leading preseason and pre-game sports content publisher.

Step #3: Make your picks

When you're ready to make your picks, click on the My Picks tab and select a winner for each of the matchups presented. Next to each team will be their season record and their hot/cold indicator, which tells you if they've won or lost 3 or more games in a row. Finally, predict the score for the Bonus Game (we use it as a tiebreaker) and then click "Submit Picks." Simple.

Step #4: Check your picks history

As soon as you submit your picks, you will be brought to a confirmation screen and will also be emailed a copy of your selections. The confirmation screen is your receipt that you have made picks and we've recorded them. Feel free to print it out. If you want to be doubly sure, you can check the My Picks page, where each round's picks will be displayed.

Step #5: Check the standings

After all the games are over, log back in and check the Standings page. While you'll know as soon as you login how you did from the Statbox (usually located in the top right corner, providing points and rank for the most recent round and cumulative), you should check the Standings page to see who finished above and below you.

Step #6: Challenge Your Friends

Looking for something a little more personal? Go to the Leagues page and create or join a Challenge League. Each league can have from 5-100 members and you can belong to up to 5 leagues. They also have a private message board so league members can talk smack while competing head to head. There are no prizes at stake, but bragging rights can be worth an awful lot!
