Charissa Thompson on where NFL teams with positive COVID-19 tests stand

‘The NFL is not immune to COVID,’ Fox Sports broadcaster Charissa Thompson tells ‘Fox & Friends Weekend.’

On this Football Sunday the Fox Super 6 jackpot has hit its biggest milestone yet, with $1 million dollars of Terry Bradshaw’s money up for grabs.

Speaking on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday, Charissa Thompson, host of FOX NFL KICKOFF, the Sunday morning NFL pregame show leading into FOX NFL SUNDAY, previewed what fans can expect.

“It’s the biggest contest in Super 6 history,” Thompson said, noting that the jackpot is money belonging to the Hall of Fame Pittsburg Steelers quarterback and "Fox NFL Sunday" host.

“When you win four Super Bowls you’ve got a lot of money,” Thompson continued.

How can you win? Well, just pick the winners and the margins of victory of the six games listed on the Fox Super 6 app. Get them all right and you will take home part of the grand prize jackpot of $1 million. (The jackpot will be split among all those who get every game and margin of victory correct.)

Even if nobody correctly picks the winner and margin for all six games, those who come the closest will be eligible for the $10,000 guaranteed prize which will be handed out.

The best part of all is it’s free. To play, all you have to do is go to the Fox Super 6 app on your phone or tablet device. When you click on the app, you will see the entry for the NFL Sunday Challenge. Just go onto the app, swipe for the team that you think will win and the margin of victory.

Host Will Cain noted on Sunday that it has “been a long week of uncertainty in the NFL” with “multiple positive Covid-19 tests” putting many of Sunday’s games “in jeopardy.”

He went on to say that the league decided “to move forward with all of the scheduled games.”

“The good news is that everything is a go,” Thompson said. “We’re going to play the games that are scheduled today.”

Thompson acknowledged that “the NFL is not immune to COVID, nor is anybody” and that “the NFL is doing everything that they can to mitigate the positive results.”

Here’s the six NFL games to pick for this coming week.

FOX Bet Super 6, the free-to-play app that typically focuses on sporting events, will also allow users to win prizes by making accurate predictions about the second presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic nominee Biden on Thursday, Oct. 22, at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn.
