Week 1 is always the hardest to predict scores. So, I promise you're not alone for those of you who picked the Packers, Patriots, and Titans last week. Let’s see what Week 2 has in store, as there should be plenty of competitive games around the league.

Please take the time to read the rules and ask any questions you might have. Good luck to everyone this week.

All times below are Pacific Standard time.

49ers @ Eagles - Sunday, September 19, 10:00 a.m.

Rams @ Colts - Sunday, September 19, 10:00 a.m.

Bills @ Eagles - Sunday, September 19, 10:00 a.m.

Bengals @ Bears - Sunday, September 19, 10:00 a.m.

Vikings @ Cardinals - Sunday, September 19, 1:05 p.m.

Cowboys @ Chargers - Sunday, September 19, 1:25 p.m.

Example of Prediction Score Format

A scoring post format must be followed to make the scoring easier to record and avoid potential discrepancies with scoring posts. If you fail to follow this format, your scores may be disqualified at our discretion. Therefore, please review the formatting rules before posting your results.

The format is “Team A @ Team B: A score - B score.” The Visiting Team is always listed first, and the Home team listed second:

Visiting Team @ Home Team: Visiting Team score - Home Team score

Using the 49ers @ Eagles Week 2 game as an example, if you think San Francisco will win 24-20, the required format is:

San Francisco @ Eagles: 24 - 14

If you think Philadelphia will win 24-14, the required format is:

San Francisco @ Philadelphia: 14-24

If provided, a bold highlight of the winning team will override a conflicting score format. A bold highlight of the intended winning team is not necessary but helps clarify the winning team in case of an error in the scoring format, for example:

San Francisco @ Philadelphia: 20-24 would be scored as San Francisco winning 24 - 20 based on the bold highlight of San Francisco as the intended winning team. Likewise, San Francisco @ Philadelphia: 24-14 would be scored as Philadelphia winning 24 - 20 based on the bold highlight of Detriot as the intended winning team.

A bold highlight of the team’s individual score is unnecessary (and could complicate things anyway) and won’t be considered in the scoring, such as San Francisco @ Detroit 24-20 (no need to bold the score).

You can post scoring predictions at any time up until the start of the official game time. You can even change your scoring predictions multiple times if needed. If you make a mistake in the formatting, we’ll try to reply to your score, reminding you to correct it or clarify. Changes must be made as a reply to your original post. Scores must post by the start of the official game time or will be considered late and not counted in the scoring totals.

In case Scores are posted past the scheduled game start time, we will resolve any disputes using ESPN’s game summary. The box score summary will have the actual and official game start times.
