How To Play
1 Create an Entry
After registering with the site, create your entry for FOX Pro Football Pick'em. If you've received a group invitation via email, clicking the link in the email will also start the process to create an entry. You may have to supply a password for the group depending on its privacy settings. The owner of the group can provide the password.
2 Get in a Group
After you've created an entry, decide whether to join an existing group or create your own. Groups consist of both official groups and user-created groups. A group can either be public or private.

Private groups may adjust their rules to play against the spread, use confidence points, drop the lowest score, set pick deadlines and much more. Each group has its own leaderboard, message board, scorecard and more.
3 Invite Friends
Inviting friends, family and co-workers is easy and can be done through email, Facebook and Twitter.

Make the pro football season more enjoyable with a little friendly competition. Get as many as you can in the game so you can enjoy that top position even more.
4 Make Your Picks
Each week pick the winners of every NFL game to earn points. Points are based on the number of correct selections for a given week. If the group uses confidence points, then group points also factor in the assigned confidence points for the game. Get in-depth game analysis by using the matchup modal.

If your entry is picking with the spread, the spread is listed to the right of the home team. For instance, if the home team is listed with a spread of "-5", then the home team must win by more than 5 points. If the home team is listed with a spread of "+5", it must not lose by more than 5 or more points.
5 View Standings
