NFL Playoff Contest

Postby opie22002 on Tue Jan 01, 2013 9:00 pm

We want to have a playoff contest where people predict the brackets, similar to that of a March Madness tournament.

We were thinking of awarding a point for each correct wild card weekend pick. Three points for each correct divisional playoff pick. 5 points for each correct conference championship pick. And maybe 8 points if you pick the correct champion.

The tie breaker could be whoever gets the closest to the actual Super Bowl score?

Anybody have any good contest ideas? Does this sound ok?

i'd put the points lower, especially for the super bowl. how about 1,2,3,5?

That could work too. Maybe that puts more emphasis on predicting more games correctly instead of just one. Thanks!

Google "NFL Playoff Bracket" and there are bracket documents that can be printed/downloaded.
Don't forget that the NFL re-seeds the teams after the first round, so doing a bracket in advance is not as clean as with the NCAA Basketball tournament.
