The 2014 NFL regular season schedule is expected to be released by the end of April. The Rams are spicing things up a bit by offering fans the chance to win $100,000 by guessing how their schedule is going to play out. The Rams’ opponents for the season are already known, so all the remains putting them and the bye week in the right order. To further complicate things, entrants have to predict which day of the week each game is going to occur. Frankly, I think my guess that the Rams are playing 12 Thursday night games is going to pay off big time.
As we all know, the NFL is a copycat league, so other teams are bound to organize a similar contest to build excitement for the 2014 season. What will they offer for correctly guessing their schedule?
Giants: Date with the Mara of your choice.
Browns: A week off from the Factory and a trip to visit a winning team, the Arizona Cardinals.
