Edited, because I just found remembered that the playoff format changes this season, with 7 teams from each conference, and only the #1 seed getting a bye.

ANNOUNCEMENT - Bracket Predictions Notice

Only one week left to get your bracket predictions in (or change them if you have already submitted before). The deadline is the kickoff time of the season opener Houston at Kansas City.

The NFL has changed its playoff format, starting with the 2020 season. There will be an additional playoff team in each conference, so a total of six wild-card teams instead of only four like before. Only the first seed of each conference will enjoy a bye week during wild-card weekend from now on. The matchups in the wild-card round are 2nd seed vs. 7th seed, 3rd vs. 6th and 4th vs. 5th. Divisional playoffs are highest remaining seed vs. lowest remaining seed.

I've adjusted the scoring system for the bracket predictions to arrive at exactly 100 points again. Changes that were made:

1. Division winners are now 2 points each, previously only 1.
2. AFC and NFC playoff teams are now 1 point each, previously 2. The extra point for each correctly predicted seed remains the same.

@PAOerfulone You'll have to work on your bracket again to include a seventh team in each conference.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Alrighty then.

Damn only two signups?

I always do decent in this until I forget to make picks before kickoff one weekend and it all goes to hell. I'm going to join again but this time I will be letting a coin flip decide every decision I have to make except the MNF point totals if that is still a thing. I already did the coin flips for everything and you will be pleased to know that the New York Jets win the Super Bowl over the Atlanta Falcons. Poor Matty Ice. I will make a detailed bracket later.

It is hard to understand, but I think it works. It would be better to order the playoffs by seed number.

@OP, I am going to be bored at work at some point, so I might as well join up again and do a bunch of my picks/research when that happens.

Looks like you put the playoff teams in the order from East to West instead of the seeding that you are supposed to be predict, so you should redo the playoffs.

If you actually predicted the seeding in your bracket, then HOU and CLE would play against each other in the wild-card round, so it wouldn't be possible for both teams to advance. So either way, you'll have to go over your playoff predictions again.

I'm down to join this year. I'll fill out preseason prediction this weekend and down for weekly



I ended up having to redo my playoff coin flips because I forgot about the expanded playoffs this season.
