Time for the final football contest of the year. If this is your first time here, the idea is simple - pick the results of the NFL playoffs before they begin.

Rules and regs:
*To enter, post your picks for the entire NFL postseason by 4:30 on January 5th (kickoff of the first playoff game). You only need to pick the winning teams. (Example, you pick the Foobars over the Yippies. The Foobars beat the Wonkyducks instead. That's a correct pick.) Remember in the second round, the lowest remaining seed plays the 1 seed at their home stadium.
*Picking a correct winner in the Wild Card round gets you 10 points. The Divisional Round games are worth 20 points. The Divisional Championship games are 40 points apiece. The Super Bowl is 60 points.
*Ties will be broken by the number of games correctly picked. If that number is equal, the prize will be split
*Here are the prizes
-First place: $20 gift card for Amazon or Steam
-Second place: $10 gift card
-Last place - $2 gift card
-Perfect score - x2 Prize
-Double Prize winners (Sarge, Username, Klimbatize, Ghandi) - x2 Prize. A perfect score double prize winner gets x3 Prize.

Here are the seedings to help you make your picks. If you need help figuring out who plays who when, feel free to ask.

AFC
1 - Denver Broncos
2 - New England Patriots
3 - Houston Texans
4 - Baltimore Ravens
5 - Indianapolis Colts
6 - Cincinnati Bengals

NFC
1 - Atlanta Falcons
2 - San Francisco 49ers
3 - Green Bay Packers
4 - Washington Redskins
5 - Seattle Seahawks
6 - Minnesota Vikings

Good luck to everyone!

I'll be doing this too. It may be a day or two before I get the picks in, as well as a 600 mile drive back home.

Houston is getting way too much credit seeing as how they've been in a death spiral lately.

Also, I agree with Sideway. Go Wonkeyducks.

I see I'm eligible for double prizes. What contest did I win?

Since Ghandi's win also slipped by the fairness-checker, I figured I'd let you in too as the second-place finisher (well, tied for second). Plus, your beard is sexy.

Ha, you're right. Nice catch. I didn't look into that closely because I figured it would be Denver vs. New England no matter the combination.

I've edited my picks, Satsui.

Probably because I started things rolling with a Cincy victory, and they picked Houston, so they assumed that's who Denver would play.
I'm not double-checking these things (remember, the winner is the only pick that matters no matter who they play), so if you have other changes, please give me a heads up. I've changed up Klim's.

I was going off Usa's model but I have since educated myself and updated my picks accordingly. It's actually pretty important to get the right match ups while picking because if you have two teams picked to win when they are actually playing each other, you're kind of fucking yourself.

This is helpful if anyone wants to take a look: http://draftcalc.com/wp-content/images/2013-nfl-playoff-bracket-800x500.jpg

Running out of time. Picks are final at 4:30 today. If you see a robot, get him in here.

10 entries. All updates.

So far everyone's in decent shape. No 0 scores, and nobody with a 10 picked their losing team to win next week. We'll see how tomorrow goes.

Damn, now I need both a Seattle and a Houston win to have any chance.

Also, it's irrelevant now, but Ghandi picked Indy over Green Bay, not over Atlanta.

I put way too much faith in the rookie QBs...

Yeah I thought it would be too much pressure for any of them to do well. Actually surprised Wilson did as well as he did for Seattle, only took them because their defense is far better than Washington's.
