EARTH CITY, Mo. — It’s not quite Warren Buffett and his billion dollar prize for a perfect NCAA tournament bracket but the St. Louis Rams are offering a lucrative reward for a guessing game of their own.
The Rams announced Monday afternoon that any person who can guess their 2014 schedule with 100 percent accuracy wins $100,000. To win the prize, the participant must correctly hit on all facets of the schedule, including each game’s opponent, location, the exact date of the game and guess the team’s bye week.

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.
In the even more unlikely event that more than one person accurately predicts the schedule, the Rams will hold a trivia contest as a tiebreaker. The contest is limited to those 18 or older with a limit of one entry per person. Those that want to participate can enter at the team’s website, stlouisrams.com/guessourgames.
Although the NFL has yet to reveal when it will announce this year’s regular-season schedule, it’s expected to come sometime next week. The Rams set a deadline of April 21 at 5:59 ET for entries.
“In anticipation of the Rams 2014 regular season schedule release, we are excited to offer fans the unique opportunity to win $100,000,” Rams vice president of marketing Brian Killingsworth said in a statement. “We challenge our fans to accurately predict all 17 weeks of the team’s regular season schedule and win the cash prize.” Covered Rams for nine years for stlouisrams.com
