The St. Louis Rams are offering a $100,000 reward to anyone who can correctly guess their 2014 schedule.
The Rams posted the contest guidelines on their official website on April 14:
"The St. Louis Rams have announced their first ever 'Guess Our Games' challenge, giving fans the chance to win $100,000 if they can correctly predict all 17 weeks of the team's 2014 regular-season schedule.
"Fans can access the contest at www.stlouisrams.com/guessourgames. In order to have the opportunity to win the cash prize, the contestant must correctly select the opponent, location, and day of each game, including the bye week.
"If more than one fan gets the entire schedule correct (including the Rams' opponent, the date, and location of each game as well as the bye week), there will be a trivia contest to determine the ultimate 'Guess Our Games' challenge winner.
"There can only be one (1) winner and there is only one (1) entry per person."
Rams vice president of marketing Brian Killingsworth told the team's official website the contest is meant to spice up the release of the actual regular-season schedule.
He said,"In anticipation of the Rams' 2014 regular-season schedule release, we are excited to offer fans the unique opportunity to win $100,000. We challenge our fans to accurately predict all 17 weeks of the team's regular-season schedule and win the cash prize."
Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the minimum age for each contestant is 18.
ESPN's Nick Wagoner chimed in on the contest in his April 14 update.
He wrote,"In other words, it's not as simple as simply guessing which team the Rams will play in a given week. With so many moving parts, like predicting which games might fall on a Thursday or Monday night, the contest has better odds than something as extensive as the NCAA tournament but still figures to offer longshot odds, at best."
The Rams' "Guess Our Games" challenge has a 4:59 p.m. CT deadline on April 21, 2014.
In a related development, another NFL team -- the Buffalo Bills -- are offering free lifetime season tickets to the lucky contestant who can predict their own 2014 schedule.
