''I know the front office has addressed some offseason needs in free agency and of course the draft's coming up and now it's up to the players to put in the hard work in the weight room, the film room and on the practice field to try to be a better team this year and that all starts Monday.''

Guess the St. Louis Rams' exact 2014 schedule, and you can win $100,000 (10:58 AM)
Yahoo! Sports: The NFL has this promotion thing down pat, and if Warren Buffet can engineer a Billion-dollar Bracket challenge, then by golly, the St. Louis Rams can have a pretty good consolation giveaway. Anyone who can correctly guess, game for game, what the St. Louis Rams' schedule will look like can win $100,000. Again: Fans are being asked to predict the team's schedule for money . What a brilliant idea that underscores fans' hunger for all things NFL. The Buffalo Bills have their own version of a schedule contest . If a fan can nail every game perfectly, he or she will win tickets for life. The most correct entries this year will earn 2014 season tickets. But we're talking every game here, home or road, plus the day. In the Rams contest, you must predict Thursday/Sunday/Monday for every week, plus the bye, and there's even a Saturday option for Week 16, when the NFL will have a double header on that day. (Here are a few hints to get your Bills entry started off right: It appears the Bills will be at Detroit on Thanksgiving, and they are rumored to be hosting the Packers in a Monday night game this season.) Can you do it? Seems like a tall order, but a fun promotion nonetheless. And with the NFL announcing this week that the schedule will not be announced this week, it appears fans will have ample time to get their entries in. contrary to some tweets, the #NFL '14 schedule will not be released this week. we will announce when we will announce it — Brian McCarthy (@NFLprguy) April 14, 2014 - - - - - - - An aside: Is that not the most NFL tweet ever?
