Four for Friday: New Year, New News!

New contests, an NFL Five app, and more below!

1. NFL Five 2020 Playoff Giveaway 

The NFL Playoffs are underway, and we’re matching the action with a new NFL Five giveaway. Our last contest asked participants to guess which team will win the Super Bowl, while this upcoming contest will revolve around “top individual performers” in the Playoffs. Check back later in the month for prizes and participation details, then visit the Panini Games Facebook page to enter!

2. MetaX Giveaway

January also brings a new MetaX “win-a-box” giveaway, with entrants required to post their gaming resolutions for the upcoming year! Visit the blog on Friday, January 10th for the prompt – followed by the announcement of the winners on the 17th.

3. NFL Five Card of the Week

This weekend’s slate of games begins with Buffalo at Houston, and Texans Quarterback Deshaun Watson will likely be a major factor in the outcome. In the NFL Five TCG, U98-19 Deshaun Watson can have an equally big impact on your game plan. Similar to Lamar Jackson, Watson is at his best when paired with a run heavy strategy. Using your Quarterback slot on an effect that adds yards to a run means you’ll be more predictable – look to overwhelm your opponent with multiple run plays to deplete their defensive options.
