Contest! Win the New Wilson X Football

The NFL season starts tonight, and Wilson is launching an awesome new football today that you can win

The NFL is back! Tonight is the official opening of the 2016 NFL regular season with a rematch of last season's Super Bowl matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the the champion Denver Broncos. Today also marks the launch of the new Wilson X football. What is different about this new football?

Here is a little info from their press release:

Key to the Wilson X Connected Football is a tiny, undetectable sensor that is embedded in an actual Wilson football. The sensor, which connects via Bluetooth to the Wilson X Connected Football app on any mobile device, tracks a fan's throw distance, velocity, spiral efficiency, spin rate, and if the football was caught or dropped. Players also receive their very own quarterback ranking score.

Once in the app, fans can create their own male or female NFL quarterback avatar, selecting from any of the League's 32 teams. Through five exciting game modes, including QB Warm Up, Elimination, Precision, Game Time and Final Drive, a rich audio experience, and a deep set of never before seen stats, fans will feel the rush of being their team's quarterback, and the mastermind behind those big game moments - all while the clock is counting, their opponents are plotting, and the fans are cheering.

Pretty cool, but how can you win this new piece of tech?  Everyone remembers Matt Jones "beeping" ball from this summer that helps a player properly grip the football, and beeps when there isn't enough pressure. This contest has to involve running backs so here are the rules for entering:

Contest Rules:

1. The contest starts at the time of this posting and will end at kickoff for the Redskins vs Steelers Monday Night Football game at 7:10pm EST on September 12th, 2016.

2. The last entry posted in this thread before kickoff will be considered your official entry.

3. The winner will be determined by the contest guidelines and tiebreakers. Final decision on a winner will be determined by Hogs Haven staff.

How it Works:

1. Pick the Washington Redskins RB who will have the most rushing yards against the Steelers, and pick the amount of yards they will run for.



1. List the amount of receiving yards your pick at RB will get vs the Steelers

2. List the amount of fumbles your RB pick will have and the amount they will lose.

3. If there is still no winner after the tiebreakers, Hogshaven staff will randomly pick a winner.

Good luck to all, and check out the Wilson X football here!
