Okay, yeah, I've been busy. Or tired. Or lazy. Whatever. This is the last one, the big one, and the first one. Time to pick the NFL Playoffs!

Normally I copy/paste the rules, but I can't be bothered, and most of you know them anyways. So if I forget something, remind me.

-By the first Playoff game, submit your pick for each round of the playoffs, who will win each game. You fill out the entire playoff bracket, all the way to the Super Bowl, ahead of time. Note that only the winners matter, not who they beat (so if you pick New England beating Cincinnati, and they beat Denver, that's still considered a win). Also, this kinda went without saying before, but I guess I have to say it now - every bracket must be unique. First submitted, first served.

-Each Wild Card Round game picked correctly is worth 10 points. Each Divisional Round game picked correctly is worth 20 points. Each Championship game picked correctly is worth 40 points. The Super Bowl is worth 60 points. Ties are broken by most games picked correctly at first, then ties will result in a split prize.

-Remember, in the Divisional round, the #1 seed plays the lowest remaining seed, and the #2 seed plays the remaining team. Plan your brackets accordingly. If someone's bracket is mucked up, please be sure to tell that person.

-Prizes will be as follows this year:
-First place will win a $10 Gift Card to Amazon.com
-Second place will win a $5 Gift Card.
-Last place will win a $2 Gift Card, as long as they scored any points at all.
-Any perfect score will win double prizes.
-The following people won one of the earlier contests and therefore all prizes they win in this one are doubled - Atma, Username, Klimbatize, Cpt. Fantastic

Brackets are due January 7th by 4:30 PM EST. Sorry that doesn't give as much time as I'd hoped, but blame my new job and stuff.

To remind you, here are the teams and seeding

AFC
#1 - New England Patriots
#2 - Baltimore Ravens
#3 - Houston Texans
#4 - Denver Broncos

#6 - Cincinnati Bengals

Hope I have the seeding correct. Tried to do it based on what the NFL.com playoff picture article said.

You got it right. The only place you can really mess up is the second round. New England and Green Bay play the lowest remaining seed.

Come on, we need more than 4 people!

You don't even need to pay attention to this one, guys. Just make a pick and I'll poke you if you win.

Not a very realistic scenerio but Atlanta and Detroit are my teams. In reality, I expect Detroit to lose to New Orleans and Atlanta to beat New York, but that's all.

It does not. Detroit would play Green Bay, and Atlanta would play SF. It's fine, though, since it all ends up in the same place. I'll fix it when I copy it over.

The bracket still works. New York still plays Green Bay in his bracket. I'll fix that too. If he intended Atlanta to win round 1 though, he better change it.

Oops, corrected. I looked at the Bracket wrong.

I think it's correct now.

The Giants beat the Falcons then Green Bay beats the Giants.

I am too late to enter, but for kicks I'll throw this out there.

I think it will be New England vs New Orleans in the Super Bowl. Both teams will score 30 or more points. I want New England to win, but I think New Orleans will.

Of course Detroit could make a mockery of my guess tonight.

I got 3 out of 4 right, and almost got them all, but then TEBOW, fresh from college, the player I REALLY wanted to see play in the NFL, showed up.

What an exciting end!

Clearly, my current Superbowl matchup is now impossible.

Awesome Wildcard Weekend.

I'm just surprised Denver had that in them. I was pretty sure they'd get crushed by the Steelers but I guess every year we have to get that one shocker like the Seahawks last year. I tried to guess which team it would be with my picks and incorrectly chose the Bengals, ah well. Still you'd think the Steelers, who pride themselves on their defense, could have defended a pass better than that. Maybe I'll buy into this whole Tebow thing if they can make it past the Patriots, I'll definitely be rooting for them because I fucking hate the Pats.
