Just checking if we have at least 4 or 5 who want to take part again this season.

If you haven't played before, this is completely separate from the pick 'em league. You pick the entire playoff bracket before the wild card games start next Saturday.

Scoring:

Wild Card Playoff games - 5 points each (20 possible)

Divisional Playoff games - 10 points each (40 possible)

Conference Championship games - 15 points each (30 possible)

Super Bowl LI - 20 points


A perfect bracket would be worth 110 points. Plus there would be bonus questions each week to help break ties if needed.

Wild Card round bonus question:

How many total points will be scored by the 4 winning teams?

Closest guess (over or under doesn't matter) gets a bonus point.

I hate picking the cowboys. But they have been the best team from top to bottom in my opinion.
If the Giants make it, I will be making the trip to Houston. There is no doubt about that.
And if somehow, Brady wins #5. That ends all arguments from me. He is the Greatest Ever. I dont think anyone can argue against it. Hate him all you want. Facts are facts. if he wins #5, move over Montana, move over Rice, move over Jim Brown. He will be the greatest football player that ever lived. As a new yorker, its in my blood to hate all things Boston. But it gets to the point where enough is enough and you have to recognize greatness. And if a new yorker like me can come around and admit this, I think everyone else who hates Boston and/or the pats can do the same.

But thats if he wins. I dont see it happening this year. But Im just putting it out there.

This means we are due for some close games today and a couple of road upsets.

It slipped my mind to throw in a question for a bonus point this week so I'll make it for tonight's game to give people time to answer.


**Total combined passing yards between Pittsburgh and KC tonight?**


I've got 533

I was closest on the bonus question last week. Total combined points of the 4 winning teams were 121 (I guessed 114).
