Do you think you know more about football than anyone out there? You've got a chance to prove it in one of the simplest ways possible by playing Pigskin Pick 'em.
The object of the game is simple: Pick the winner of each NFL game each week, whether by picking against the point spread or straight up (no point spread). The most correct picks in any given week, as well as over the course of the season, in each format (spread and non-spread) wins a great prize.
And while you're also competing against all football fans playing our game, you can also have plenty of fun by setting up groups where you can compete more closely against your friends and family. The local competition can get fierce, just like the action on the gridiron.
Once in the game, you can make your picks by any means possible, whether it's randomly picking teams, or by doing research with all the great tools available here on ESPN.com.
So good luck and happy picking!
