RULES: FOOTBALL

Q1: Preseason picks

All NFL teams have been seeded according to the secret Decathlon algorithm. Select eight teams totaling no more than 32 seed points.

Your eight teams will earn points as follows:
...7 pts for each win (8 for a playoff win)
..15 pts for a division title
...9 pts for a wildcard berth
..25 pts for a Super Bowl berth
..40 pts for a Super Bowl win

Picks lock 9/10 at the first kickoff (time TBD)

Q2: Playoffs
New this year: the Decathlon will pick each game of the NFL playoffs against the spread.

Round 1: 6 games, 15 pts each
Round 2: 4 games, 20 pts each
Round 3: Conference Championships, 30 pts each
Round 4: Super Bowl, 40 pts

The Super Bowl may also feature smaller tie-breaker Qs.

We are not forcing 0.5pt spreads, so if any game is a push (the favorite wins by exactly the line), both teams will earn 0 points. For each group, you must pick a winner against the spread for each game. The seeds only exist to ensure that you pick one team from each game.

Picks for each round will open Tue afternoon after the lines settle and will lock close to kickoff of the first game that weekend. Once locked, lines will not change.

Round 1 games lock Sat Jan9, 10a Pacific
Round 2 games lock Sat Jan16, 1035a Pacific
