NBC SPORTS LAUNCHES “SUNDAY NIGHT 7” NFL FREE-TO-PLAY GAME, FEATURING $2 MILLION IN GUARANTEED CASH PRIZES
Game Available NOW on NBC Sports Predictor App & NBCSports.com
STAMFORD, Conn. – September 4, 2019 – The home of Sunday Night Football, primetime television’s #1 show for an unprecedented eight consecutive years, NBC Sports is launching a weekly NFL free-to-play game, Sunday Night 7. Fans can participate for the first time leading up to this week’s Sunday Night Football opener (Steelers at Patriots, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC) as the competition begins for $2 million in guaranteed cash prizes over the course of the regular season and NBC NFL playoff games ($100,000 in guaranteed prizes for each contest).
The NFL free-to-play prediction game, Sunday Night 7 is a weekly game that features seven-question contests focused on the upcoming NBC Sunday Night Football game, providing viewers with a new way to engage, and additional rooting interests every Sunday evening.
Contest questions will change on a weekly basis, and cover a range of predictions from head-to-head positional statistical matchups – such as “Which team’s quarterback will have more yards and touchdowns?” – to the game result, who scores the game’s first or last touchdown, the total touchdowns in the game, total points in the game, and the length of the longest touchdown or field goal in the game.
“We are excited to debut our weekly NFL free-to-play game, which will further engage fans while they watch Sunday Night Football,” said David Preschlack, President, NBC Sports Regional Networks, and Executive Vice President, Content Strategy, NBC Sports Group. “Sunday Night 7 will provide a compelling companion to primetime’s #1 show with a rich, multi-media experience and guaranteed cash prizes.”

NBC Sports’ Sunday Night 7 expands NBC Sports’ predictive gaming content, which began with the December 2018 launch of the free-to-play NBC Sports Predictor app featuring the Premier League Pick ‘Em game, followed by Golf Pick ‘Em and NASCAR Pick ‘Em.
