I want that Chiefs vs. Packers Super Bowl after last year's Mahomes vs. Rodgers regular season game didn't happen.

I didn't dare to put a third-ranked team into the playoffs despite the new format. But I also didn't look up the schedule to see which divisions play against each other this year.

I'd completely forgotten about the expanded playoff format. But you're right Rol: since I'll be so far off base with what little I wrote, I am comfortable leaving the rest incomplete. If nothing else, it means I don't have to reconcile my own bullshit picks with each other.

I just got both these lists out at the last minute and haven't read all the rules yet. Please let me know if I need to fix anything.

Everything is correct.

You don't need to highlight your predicted winners in bold. Somebody did that on the first page and a couple others followed, but it's not necessary.

The rules are a huge post first and foremost for me to point at just about every possible instance and be able to say that it's clearly defined what happens if this or that happens. The things you need to know for the weekly picks:

1. The template for each given week's picks will be located in the second post of the thread. I'll update it in time.

2. You enter 1, 2 or T (for a tie if you are crazy enough to predict one) to make your picks. Getting the SNF game correct yields a small bonus, so it's worth giving that one an extra thought. This week it's Cowboys vs. Rams.

3. You can change picks for any given game as long as it isn't past the respective kickoff time yet. Do it with a new post though, because I won't check old posts for edits. Best way is to quote your initial post and clearly state what you want to have changed.

That's basically it for the next four months. Afterwards it's playoff time, but I have yet to determine this year's playoff format and will explain it in detail in four months when we move on to that stage of the prediction league.

Alright, thanks. I'll definitely give this extra consideration. Cowboys-Rams was actually the hardest game to pick this week, as I expect both to have bounce back seasons.



ANNOUNCEMENT - Bracket Predictions Closed

The season opener Texans at Chiefs is underway, so the bracket predictions have been closed. This year 11 brackets were submitted and entered in the spreadsheet.

I encourage you to check if all of your predictions were entered correctly and make me aware of any mistakes until Sunday 1pm EDT. Should you not say anything until then and it later turns out that there was a mistake, you'll have to live with that mistake.

I tend to be thorough, so everything should be correct to begin with. But if it isn't, you have been warned and had three days to look up the spreadsheet and speak up in case you spotted a mistake.

KC offense still looks incredibly good. I can't help but root for Mahomes. He's so good.

I'm just happy football is back.
