Every week fans can choose winners of football games, with the regular season set to begin Sept. 10. The first game of the season will be between the Houston Texans and the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Fans can test their expertise against’s Doug Lesmerises and Terry Pluto. Each week, one winner will receive a $250 gift certificate to Wayside Furniture. So far, more than 75 people are signed up, and you can register to make picks here.

The COVID-19 pandemic means teams such as the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and New York Jets among others are not having fans in the stadium for Week 1, according to ESPN. Teams like the Patriots will not have fans for all of September.

The Browns still don’t know if they can have fans at the stadium, as they’re awaiting Gov. Mike DeWine’s approval. Tickets will be sold in “pods of known fans,” meaning groups of 1-10 people who can sit next to one another.
