Tie-Breaker Rules

  1. If multiple contestants end the season tied for first place then the tie-breaker for the $10,000 Grand Prize will be most points in Week 17 of the NFL regular season. If multiple contestants remain tied after this tie-breaker then the next tie-breaker will be most points in Week 16 and so on until we have one winner. If multiple entries scored the exact same point totals for all 17 weeks of the season then the cash prize will be divided equally between the contestants.
  2. The end-of-season tie-breaker rules will only apply to the $10,000 Grand Prize. If multiple contestants tie for any other cash prizes then the cash prize will be divided equally among the tied contestants.
  3. If multiple contestants tie for weekly high score the tie-breaker used for the weekly cash prize will be the “Lock of the Week” selection. The entry that won their “Lock of the Week” pick by the largest margin will be determined the winner. As an example: Contestant A picks Baltimore -6.5 as his “Lock of the Week” and the Ravens win by 10 (margin of 3.5 points). Contestant B picks Houston -3.5 as his “Lock of the Week” and the Texans win by 14 (margin of 10.5 points). Contest B is ruled the winner of the weekly cash prize because of the larger margin of victory. If multiple teams are still tied after this tie-breaker then the weekly cash prize will be divided equally among the tied teams.
