If you played the Ultimate Football Pool last year, you will still need to create a new account. Accounts do not carry over year-to-year.
It's easy to play. Each week, we'll post the coming weekend's full
slate of NFL games. Go down the list and decide which team will win
each game. You'll also need to answer our tie-breaker question,
which is usually what you think will be the total number of points
scored in that week's Monday Night Football game.
But wait - now you can earn a bonus point each week!
Ever heard of a Survivor Pool? In those pools, you pick one team
each week, and you can only pick that team once for the entire season.
If your team wins, you get to keep playing. If not, you're done.
Don't worry, we won't be kicking you out of the contest if your team
doesn't win. But you'll get one bonus point added to your score

picks for each game. Is there an early game on the schedule this
week, but you're not ready to make your picks for the later games?
No problem! You can submit picks just for the early games, and
come back later to make the rest of your picks. Or maybe a team's
star player is suddenly not going to play this week? Don't worry!
As long as the game hasn't started yet, you can change your pick.
Manage your picks as closely or loosely as you want, to increase
your chances of winning our prizes. (Note: Survivor Picks
must be received by kickoff of the first game of the week.)
Every Tuesday after all of the week's games are played, we'll score
The player with the top score* each week wins our Weekly Prizes:
a $75 Gift Certificate to Al's Sporting Goods!
But don't stop at the Weekly Prizes; we'll keep tallying your scores
after that. The person with the most points at the end of the NFL
regular season will receive the Grand Prize:
A 5-day/4-night all-inclusive vacation for two, including airfare, to the
RIU Hotels & Resorts in Cancun or
Riviera Maya, courtesy of Apple Vacations!
* - In the event several entries tie, we will use the tie-breaker question.
The person who is closest to the total points scored in the specified game
wins. If this does not break the tie, a random drawing of the eligible
entries will be held to select a winner.
