Imagine if I had full 17 weeks of guesses...

I guess I'll rest my hat on having the best percentage correct.
As a group, we averaged eight correct picks during Week 1. If you had gotten that, you would have slid into second place and I would have gotten third.

YAYYYY congratulations, Panfan!! Congratulations, Glux, on 2nd place!!

Ok HotD, so now pick...

Patriots vs. Chiefs

And pick the winner of the game resulting from that.

Vikings vs. Rams
Eagles vs. Saints
And pick the winner of the game resulting from that.

Then you have your Super Bowl matchup.

@Auron @March @glux, You guys have got plenty of time, but don't forget your Playoff picks if you want in.

I still Don't even know how to feel about all of this. I was 11 the last time the Bills made the playoffs. I've been numb so long that I should be flipping cars over and setting trees on fire, but I'm not.

Wildcard Round
(4) Chiefs over (5) Titans
(3) Jaguars over (6) Bills
(3) Rams over (6) Falcons
(4) Saints over (5) Panthers

Divisional Round
(2) Steelers over (3) Jaguars
(1) Patriots over (4) Chiefs
(4) Saints over (1) Eagles
(2) Vikings over (3) Rams'

Conference Championship
(1) Patriots over (2) Steelers
(2) Vikings over (4) Saints

Superbowl
(1) Patriots over (2) Vikings

And we will all hate football all over again. Why can't this team just go away...

Spreadsheet has been updated with Playoff picks, on the second page of the sheet. Good night and good luck.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Just so you're all aware, I'm gonna score this NCAA Tournament style--

1 point for Wild Card round
2 points for Divisional round
3 points for Championship round
4 points for Super Bowl

And if you pick a team to win against one team, but they instead win against another team, you still get the points. (e.g. if you picked the Vikings to win the Divisional round against the Rams but they end up winning against the Saints, you'll still get the points for the Vikings winning regardless of their opponent.)

If there's a tie in points, I'll go with raw Pick Percentage as the tie breaker. Maybe the second tiebreaker can be "correct opponents" or something, if it comes to it.

^ I was actually going to suggest that scoring format. Great minds and so on and so forth.

In other news, KC is melting down like Chernobyl.

Mariota is the Quarterback, the best Wide Receiver, and the best Offensive Lineman on the Titans

Who is better:
  • Tony Romo the quarterback
  • Tony Romo the announcer

Rams lost... so that's cool.
Titans won, tho. I'm 50/50.

EDIT: Jags beat the Bills. That excitement was over quick. Go Panthers!

I may very well go 4-0 in the Wild Card round. Which inevitably means that I’ll go close to 0-4 in the Divisional round.

It makes sense—if I’m gonna score this like March Madness, it may as well reflect when normally happens to my NCAA brackets.
