3. To Participate:
a) Become a Registered Participant of the Game: Visit nfl.com/fantasy during the Registration Period and complete and submit the Game registration form to obtain a User ID and Password from NFL.com. Registration is free. Once you are a registered participant of the Game, you may access the Game Page at any time during the Registration and Promotion Period by visiting nfl.com/fantasy/pickem and submitting your User ID and Password. The use of script, macro or any other device to automate or subvert the registration process is prohibited and all such registrations will be void. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an participant based on the email address submitted at the time of registration, registration will be deemed from the person named on the applicable registration form (regardless of whether that is the name of the authorized account holder of the email address from which said registration form was submitted), provided such individual is eligible according to these Official Rules.

b) Predictions: The object of the Game is to accrue the highest number of fantasy points by the conclusion of the Game Period. Accrue fantasy points during the Game Period in the following way:

1) Pick the NFL team who you think will win each of the games for each week (hereafter combined, your Prediction).

The Predictions you submit for each Weekly Scoring Period will accumulate fantasy points based on the Scoring System below.

To Participate: Do all of the following during the Registration Period: 1) visit the Game Page (as directed above), which will feature a schedule, and follow the instructions provided to select and submit your Prediction Weekly Scoring Period by the deadline outlined in section 3.c below. If your pick(s)/Prediction are submitted by the relevant deadline outlined, this selection will be your active Prediction for the applicable Weekly Scoring Period.

Notes: 1) If you wish, you may submit multiple (or all) Weekly Scoring Period Predictions at the same time as long as they are submitted in advance of the applicable Weekly Scoring Period deadlines.

c) Prediction Tie-Breaker and Submission Deadline: The deadline for choosing, modifying, or submitting your Prediction for each Weekly Scoring Period is prior to kickoff of the first applicable game. Therefore, you may revise your Prediction for each Weekly Scoring Period throughout the Registration Period; however, you may not make a Prediction for a game that is already in progress or has been completed.

Prediction that is received by the applicable deadline will be used to tabulate your fantasy points. Fantasy points will not be awarded if 1.) Prediction is not made by the applicable deadline, 2.) a game is cancelled for any reason, or 3.) a game is postponed or rescheduled, for any reason, to take place during a subsequent Weekly Scoring Period.

All selections must be accepted and acknowledged by the computer servers by the applicable deadline to be considered valid, timely, and eligible.

Tiebreaker sort within Weekly Pick'Em works as follows. In the event of a tie on a Weekly Leaderboard, the participant who completed their final weekly entry first will win the tiebreaker. In the event of a tie on the Overall Leaderboard, the participant who scored a higher number of points in the previous week will win the tiebreaker. If ties still exist after these additional tiebreakers, the participant entries are considered tied as displayed on the leaderboards.

4. Scoring System

Predictions Fantasy Points:
For each correctly identified game winner: 10 fantasy points
