The Niners Nation (NN) prediction contest is back! For those who have never played, we pick six games each week, including the 49ers game, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football games. You predict the score of the games, and those closest to the final score accrue points for the week and cumulative throughout the season. At the end of the season, we take the Top 16 contestants and run a Top 16 Playoff contest to determine the individual season winner. For those missing the cut, we’ll do a separate Open tournament. Please take the time to read the rules and ask any questions you might have. Good luck to everyone this season.

If you are new here or want to refresh your memory, here are all the rules and regulations for the contest. Even if you’re returning, give the rules a double-check. Please read over that (it’s reasonably short), so we can have consistency in the posting.

We’ve posted the formatting rules required for posting your results. All times are pacific time zone, and you are not required to predict every game, but obviously, it helps your chances of winning to predict all the games. If you forget to pick the Sunday morning games, you can always predict whatever games remain up until the official game start time.

49ers @ Buccaneers - Sunday 9/8 1:25 p.m. (Pacific)

Green Bay @ Chicago - Thursday 9/5 5:20 p.m. (Pacific)

Rams @ Panthers - Sunday 9/8 10:00 a.m. (Pacific)

Steelers @ Patriots - SNF 9/8 5:20pm (Pacific)

Texans @ Saints - MNF 9/9 4:10pm (Pacific)

Broncos @ Raiders - MNF 9/9 7:20pm (Pacific)

IMPORTANT RULE

Remember to follow the required score posting format, which is “Team A @ Team B: A score B score.” That is visitor @ home: visitor score - home score.” Here’s an example of how to do it:

Using San Francisco @ Tampa Bay below, if you think Tampa Bay will win 24-14, here’s how it needs to appear:

San Francisco @ Minnesota: 14 - 24

If you think San Francisco will win 24-14, it needs to appear like this:

San Francisco @ Tampa Bay: 24 - 14

If you’d like you can bold the winner (San Francisco @ Minnesota: 14 - 24), but that is not required (although probably a good backup in case you reversed the score by accident.

If you make a mistake in the formatting, we may reply to your score reminding you to correct it. To correct it, reply to your picks and post them in the correct format. Do not post your scores again at the bottom of the thread. We’ll make sure and include these directions each week, so people do not forgot and lose out on points. Here is a look at last years results.
