BRATTLEBORO -- The Reformer NFL Picking Derby, which was won by Bethany Coursen in 2012 and Ricky Aither in 2013, will be open to everyone and will have a weekly winner this season.

In Week 1, the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks will start things off by hosting the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 4, at 8:30 p.m. And Peyton Manning will face his former team, when the Colts visit the Broncos on Sunday, Sept. 7, at 8:30 p.m.

Contestants are asked to pick the winner of those two games, along with the 14 others. And a total score must be submitted for Monday night’s Chargers-Cardinals contest for tiebreaker purposes.
