Sunday Night Football in America continues August 25th, at 7:00 pm CT as the Minnesota Vikings take on the San Francisco 49ers. Catch all the action here on KFOR-TV.
Don’t forget to enter the KFOR Football challenge starting September 1st, 2013. Enter here. You could win a trip to Hawaii! See the rules below. Make your picks every week for a chance to win great prizes.
Here is the latest news from the upcoming Preseason game between the Vikings and the 49ers: Nearly five months after the San Francisco 49ers traded for Colt McCoy, the former Cleveland Browns starting quarterback appears to be in danger of losing his roster spot.
After watching McCoy struggle in the first two preseason games, the 49ers announced Thursday they have signed veteran Seneca Wallace to a one-year contract.
Wallace isn’t guaranteed to push McCoy off the roster, but this is a sign that the team is uneasy about its veteran insurance behind Colin Kaepernick. Although coach Jim Harbaugh has raved about seventh-round draft pick B.J. Daniels, the rookie is better suited for the developmental role of third quarterback.
To free up roster space for Wallace, the 49ers waived wide receiver Ricardo Lockette. The subject of endless offseason puff pieces as Keapernick’s roommate, Lockette has made a habit of shining in minicamp, only to disappear when the pads come on in August.
It was just a few months ago that Harbaugh said of Lockette: “There’s something special there. I just feel it.”
Now that the receiver-needy Harbaugh has thrown in the towel on Lockette and A.J. Jenkins, we have our latest reminder that what the coach says in May is ultimately meaningless.

3. Sweepstakes Entry: To enter the Sweepstakes, go to KFOR.com/Football and register to play the football challenge. Select the team that you will believe will be the winner of each pro football regular season and playoff game and predict the score for the winning and losing team for designated the tie-breaker game. You may enter your picks and score predictions until fifteen (15) minutes before the start of each game. If you fail to select a winner for any game, your pick will be the team that was selected by the majority of participants. However, you are not eligible to win a weekly prize if you fail to select a winner for more than one game in a given week, and you are not eligible to win the grand prize unless you complete your picks for each game for at least 11 weeks. The point value for selecting the winner of each game is as follows:
Regular Season Games – 1 point
Wild Card and Divisional Playoff Game – 4 points
Conference Finals – 8 points
Championship Game – 16 points
If a game is canceled, postponed or forfeited for any reason, or if a game ends in a tie, no points will be awarded for that game. The participant with the most points for each week of the pro football regular season will be deemed a weekly prize winner. The participant with the highest total “net score” at the end of the season will be deemed the grand prize winner.
A participant’s total “net score” will be determined by subtracting the participant’s four (4) lowest weekly scores from his/her total score for all 21 weeks of the season and playoffs. In the event of a tie for a weekly prize, the tie breaker will be set forth as follows from among all tied participants: (a) the score from the winning team will be subtracted from the actual score obtained by the winning team, and the difference multiplied by itself, (b) the Score from the losing team will be subtracted from the actual score obtained by the losing team, and the difference is multiplied by itself, (c) the result in (a) is added to the result in (b) to obtain the “Score Approximation.” The participant with the lowest “Score Approximation” will be deemed the winner. If a tie remains, the winner will be chosen at random from amongst those still tied. In the event of a tie for the grand prize, the participant with the lowest total “Score Approximation” for week 21, the championship game, will be declared the winner, then working back through the Score Approximations for each of the preceding weeks.
“Pro Football Regular Season Survivor Game” Bonus Game To play the Bonus Game Select the one team you are sure will win each week. If you pick correctly you advance to the next week. However, you can only pick each team to win one time. If a game results in a tie, it counts a win and player advances. If you guess wrong, you are still eligible to continue to participate in the main game. The player who makes it through the entire regular season will win the Bonus Game prize. If more than one player makes it through the entire regular season, the winner will be determined based on the total scores for each player through the end of the regular season, and if there is still a tie, then the last week tiebreaker will be used. Participants with one wrong guess in the Survivor Game will be able to continue to play and are eligible for the second chance prize. Those with more than 2 wrong guesses can continue to play for fun. Participants agree to abide by the terms of these Official Rules and that the decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding on all matters pertaining to the Contest. The Contest ends following the start of the pro football Championship Game.
