It's getting down to the nitty gritty with only three games remaining to determine an NFL champion. Even more exciting (perhaps) is the opportunity to show that you are a champion NFL picker. So far, our best playoff picker is named after a park in Melbourne (There's one in Auckland too). Can Albert Park be caught? Anyone can still win this thing.

All are welcome to play!!


If you guess the correct individual team score, regardless of correct winner: 5 points each
If you pick correct winner on at least half the games scheduled for the week: 50 points
If you nail it on both games: 100 points
If you guess both the correct winner and score of any game: 125 bonus points tacked on for each correct game.

** ALL submissions must be entered prior to the first game of the weekend, no late entries.
Good luck!

I'd like to see a Super Bowl where the 9'ers (our current owner) get their keesters handed to them by the Ravens again.

So... Ravens by 8 today and 9'ers by 1.

Our kid sisters will have an off season to think about it.

There were a couple of interesting conference championship games. Albert Park went 2-0 to stretch his lead to 100 points in our contest. Poppa San also picked the two winners. Voyaguer unfortunately went into full Dan Campbell mode and suffered an 0-2 setback. Everyone else got one out of two correct. I couldn't see that there were any correct scores picked. Just one big game left now.

There may be mistakes or omissions in the above calculations. If there are any discrepancies in scoring requiring correction, we will forward them to the accounting firm of Peterson, Foster, Olsen (PFO) who will audit your request. They really will.

Lions TOOK THE POINTS!!
But not in the 4th when they should have. The problem with Campbell is he has poor situational awareness and is aggressive when he shouldn't be. I recall the damn fool went for it on 4th down against us on his side of the field and didn't get it. They never recovered from that inane decision.

Yeah... I admit that I believe in a playoff game, you take the points. Sure, your kicker can go all "Anders" on you and I also admit that trusting analytics in a complicated game like football is gonna bite you in the long run. Too many variables, but again, this is a tired old guy talking here.

I did really, really bad. You know it's that bad when you can't beat the people who didn't even submit picks! :(

Recall the fake punt we stopped.

They burned us with crap the year before and Campbell figured "what the hell...let's make 'em look stupid". Thing is, again my opinion, the unpredictable can become predictable. Football isn't baseball - there's a ton of difference between a pitcher/batter matchup and making 22 cats walk a straight in a football game. Just too many variables.

More than generic analytics it comes down to how good your offense is vs. your opponent's defense. Throw in whether the game is at home or on the road along with the climatic and field conditions. Every game you play is not the same as all the others. If Campbell is playing the game at home against a sub par defense the odds are very good. He is on the road against the 9ers. Not the same. What were the odds of Starr sneaking for the TD in the Ice Bowl vs. Doomsday rather than bringing in the FG unit? Lombardi was prepared to take the heat.

You aren't the first, and won't be the last to choke in the playoffs after a great regular season. Plus, you still have one last chance to get that elusive correct score on February 11. 285th try's the charm.
