Jet Chevrolet in Federal Way ran a promotion this past week, offering 12 people $35,000 if the Seahawks shut out the New York Giants, according to ESPN.

The 12 winners will be chosen in a raffle Monday afternoon.

ESPN said Jim Johnson, one of the owners of the dealership, had wanted to do the promotion leading up to the game against San Francisco but had to push it back a week to work out the rules.

The contest ran from Wednesday to Saturday last week. Anyone who purchased a car received 100 entries. People who didn't buy a car could submit a single entry.

While the contest has a total payout of $420,000, the dealership took out insurance on it for around $7,000.

In the ad the dealership took out in local media outlets, the scoreboard showed the Seahawks winning 24-0, just one point off from the actual final score.
