I tried picking the Browns upset too many times this season. I know that feel.

Btw, congrats to @Patapanfan for winning our season pick-‘em competition! More details tomorrow. Sorry @glux

If PanFan could stop WINNING EVERY YEAR THAt WOULD BE GREAT.

@Gumchum Not that's I'm truly this petty, but what's the tiebreaker between @Marilink and me? Head-to-head?

Also, I'd like to thank the refs and the 10-second run-off for keeping the Lions out of the playoffs...

Some random statisticals for ya:
via pro-football-reference.com
There were 11,120 points scored in the NFL this season.
5376 points were scored by the AFC, 5744 points by the NFC
5630 were scored against the AFC, 5490 against the NFC

The highest scoring AFC team was the New England Patriots (458); NFC team was the Los Angeles Rams (478)
The lowest scoring AFC team was the Cleveland Browns (234); NFC team was the New York Giants (246)

Biggest margin of victory: 40-0 Ravens over Dolphins in Week 8
Most points scored by a single team in a game: 54-24 Chargers over Bills in Week 11

Highest combined point total: 90; 52-38 Saints over Lions in Week 6
Lowest combined point total: 6; 6-0 Cowboys over Eagles in Week 17

Highest + point differential: NE, 162 / PHI, 162
Lowest + point differential: DAL, 22
Lowest - point differential: TEN, -22
Highest - point differential: CLE, -176

Most yards: NE, 6307
Least yards: CIN, 4488 (the Browns were 24th with 4942)

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