Registered Users can sign up any time, during the Playoff Pick'em Challenge Period, by visiting the CBSSports.com Playoff Pick'em Challenge page accessible at http://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/games/football/playoff-pickem-pool (the "CBSI Site") and follow the onscreen instructions in order to enter. To enter the Playoff Pick'em Challenge, participant will have to provide their personal information and their pick(s) of the NFL team(s) they predict will win their applicable NFL game match-up. Participants may only enter the Playoff Pick'em Challenge once per person, during the Challenge Period.
The Playoff Pick'em Challenge will run for the four weeks of the NFL playoffs. The Administrator will list selected scheduled NFL games on the CBSI Site for each weekly playoff period (each, a "Round"). You may pick the team you predict will win each game, in a Round. Once playoff teams are official, Round 1 (Wild Card Round) will become available for users to select their pick on or around December 30, 2019.
Based on the official NFL seeding designations for each playoff team, at the start of the playoffs, teams will be assigned a seed number (by the NFL) ranging from 1-6. Participants will accrue points for picking the winning team of each game, during a Round. The accrued points will be equivalent to the seed number assigned to the team picked by Participant. For example, if teams A and B are playing in Round 1, team A is a 3 seed and team B is a 6 seed, you select either of those teams to win; if team A wins, you would receive 3 points for correctly selecting team A or if team B wins, 6 points for correctly selecting team B.
For the three subsequent Rounds, seeding points will be multiplied by the Round number to get the total points earned from each match-up. The Round multiplier are shown in the table below:
|Round 1 - Wild Card||January 4 and 5, 2020 (4 games)||x1|
|Round 2 - Divisional||January 11 and 12, 2020 (4 games)||x2|
|Round 3 - Conference||January 19, 2020 (2 games)||x3|
|Round 4 - Championship||February 2, 2020 (1 game)||x4|
