Thank you to everybody who signed up to take part in our Super Sunday Square contest on Super Sunday.

The list of winners is below, along with an explanation on how the squares and numbers were put together.

First, here is how the squares were put together.

As entries came in, I put the names on a list until I reached capacity.

I then went down the list, using a 10-sided dice simulator to randomly assign a square that ranged form 1-100.

Once all the squares were assigned, I randomly assigned the top row of numbers to the AFC Champion New England Patriots, once again using the same randomization method used while assigning the squares, and the side numbers for the NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles.

For those who have not participated in a square before, here's how it works. At the end of each quarter, you take the last number in the score for the Patriots and matched up up down the grid with the corresponding number of the last digit in the score for the Eagles. The person assigned to that square wins the prize, one for each quarter with the grand prize winner determined by the score at the end of the game.

So with that explanation out of the way, here are the winners.

First quarter Score: Philadelphia 9, New England 3. Winner - Square No. 57: Jane Goldschmidt Prize is a new set of Lightning Insider coasters.

Halftime Score: Philadelphia 22, New England 12 Winner - Square No. 93: Owen Hunsberger Prize is a Lightning Insider key chain

Third quarter Score: Philadelphia 29, New England 26 Winner - Square No. 51: George Porte Prize is a Lightning Insider coffee mug

Final score Score: Philadelphia 41, New England 33 Winner - Square No. 67 Gary Blakenship Prize is a team signed Tampa Bay Lightning pennant.As a side note, to show it pays to be a subscriber, Gary purchased a Center Ice subscription the morning of the Super Bowl and ended up winning the grand prize.

All winners will be contacted directly about how to receive their prizes.
