Dedicated To The Memory of Pat Tilman
The NFL Challenge is dedicated to the memory of Pat Tillman. Pat was an American football player who played for the Arizona Cardinals. He left his pro sports career and turned down a $3.6 Million contract to enlist in the United States Army in June 2002 with his brother in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. He joined the United States Army Rangers and served multiple tours in combat before he was killed while on patrol with the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger regiment in the mountains of Afghanistan.

What is the NFL Challenge?
The NFL challenge is your chance to show how much you know about NFL football by picking the winners of each NFL game every week. Contestants must choose the winner of each contest and put a number of points on each game.
If there are 15 NFL games in a week, the contestant could put 15 points on one game, 14 points on another, game, 13 points on another game and so-on. If the Rams happen to be playing the Lions one week and you feel sure that the Rams will win, you would choose the Rams and put 15 points on that game. If the Cowboys were playing the Redskins and you viewed this game as a toss-up, you would pick the Cowboys (or the Redskins) and put 1 point on the game.
Each number can only be used for one game. At the end of the week the contestant’s score will be the total of the points for each game in which the contestant correctly picked the winner.
Here’s an example for a sample four game week:
Game 1: Rams VS Lions
Game 2: Cowboys VS Saints
Game 3: Jets VS Dolphins
Game 4: Eagles VS Vikings
For each game the contestant picks a winner and assigns a point total that indicates how confident the contestant is of the winner. Contestants can only use a given number of points one time.
For this example, a contestant might make these picks:
Game 1: Rams – 4 points
Game 2: Saints – 2 points
Game 3: Jets – 1 points
Game 4: Vikings – 3 points
If a contestant’s pick wins the game then they get the point total for that game. If the contestant’s pick loses the game then they get 0 points for that game. If the two teams tie each other then the contestant also gets 0 points for that game.
Let’s say the games are played with the following outcomes:
Game 1: Rams – 34 : Lions – 12 / 4 points earned
Game 2: Cowboys – 28 : Saints – 27 / 0 points earned
Game 3: Jets – 45 : Dolphins – 44 / 1 point earned
Game 4: Eagles – 12 : Vikings – 24 / 3 points earned
The contestant would then have a total of 8 points for the week. Point totals are cumulative week after week, and a contestant can double his or her score by entering a secret code that is published each week in the Stars and Stripes. Each week has a winner and the person with the highest score at the end of the contest wins a grand prize!
