Stout Labels Pro Football Experts Club contest kicks into high gear

Fall is in the air. While that still conjures images of leaves turning colors, the smells of freshly-baked goods and the feel of cooler weather, it also triggers that time-honored question: Are you ready for some football? And with that comes the thrill of selecting game winners throughout the season.

In that spirit, we’re pleased to announce our 2016 Discount Labels Pro Football Experts Club contest, powered by Athlon Sports, the leading preseason and pre-game sports content publisher.

Seventeen rounds of weekly prizes will accompany a grand prize featuring a Peyton Manning-autographed Denver Broncos jersey complete with case. To participate, follow these simple steps:

1. Create an account. Head over to the Registration page and complete the information to create your own account. Why do we collect all that info? So we can contact you if and when you win a prize. Don't worry, we don't give out your information to anyone!

2.  Research the match-ups. Each week we provide weekly news items about pro football from Athlon Sports. Click here to check out Athlon “deep sleepers” for the upcoming season if you want to know more about players who may come out of left field to make a difference.

3. Make your picks. Click on the “My Picks” tab and select a winner for each matchup presented. Next to each team will be their season record and their hot/cold indicator, which tells you if they've won or lost three or more games in a row. Finally, predict the score for the Bonus Game (used as a tiebreaker) and then click "Submit Picks."

4. Check the standings. After all games are over, log back in and check the “Standings” page. While you'll know as soon as you log in how you did from the Statbox (usually located in the top right corner, providing points and rank for the most recent round and cumulative), check the “Standings” page to see who finished above and below you.
