ST. LOUIS — NFL teams know their 16 opponents for the 2014 season. But the order and specific date of they play those games haven’t been announced.

The St. Louis Rams, owned by Stan Kroenke, are having a unique contest: They are offering $100,000 if someone can correctly forecast their schedule before it’s released by the NFL. All 16 games and the bye week must be picked in order. And the day of game — Thursday, Sunday or Monday — must also be chosen.

It helps that Week 17 games are against divisional teams, so there are six options for that week: Home or away games against Arizona, San Francisco and Seattle.

Plus, Rams Executive Vice President of Football Operations and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff tweeted some scheduling guidelines.

No, there’s no $1 billion on the line like Warren Buffett and Quicken Loans offered for a perfect NCAA Tournament bracket, but winning the $100,000 won’t be easy, either.

The deadline is 4 p.m. MDT Monday, though it will end earlier if the NFL releases the  schedule before then. But an NFL official tweeted Monday the schedule will not be released this week as some had predicted.

Unlike Buffett’s contest in which there were some prizes, if no one guesses the Rams’ schedule correctly, there will be no prize awarded.
