The scoring system will be the same as last year:
  • one point a correct pick in Weeks 1 and 2,
    1 point for picking the winner of the AFC Championship Game,
    1 point for picking the winner of the NFC Championship Game,
    4 points for picking the winner of the Super Bowl.

  • total points each week, excluding bonus points:
    Week 1 : 4 points
    Week 2 : 4 points
    Week 3 : 4 points

    4 bonus points for picking it in week 1,
    3 bonus points for picking it in week 2,
    2 bonus points for picking it in week 3.

  • tie-breaker :: if players are on equal points after the Super Bowl:

I can't do much worse than the NFL regular season, I guess I might as well go for it.

Welcome all to this year’s competition, we have one less tipper from last year, 21. Defending champion rxbigdawg was signed up but missed the bell for this round. A special welcome to new tippers for this competition Kevro03 and Mustaing.

Day one brought the two #3 seeds victories, the opposite of last year where both #3 seeds were upset in the wildcard round. As a group we were 35/42 on day one. Day 2 also brought all lower seeds winning their home games, but only 2 people, ozzz2002 and KrivoyRog, had faith in the Time Tebow led Broncos to top the Steelers.

Blowout of the week was the Giants dominance over the Falcons, while the best game of the week had to be Pittsburgh/Denver game. At first Pittsburgh couldn't do anything right and Tebow and the Bronco's nothing wrong. Big Ben found his mojo in the second half and along with a late fumble recovery by the Steelers defense was able to tie the score at the end of the game. Overtime didn't last long as Tim Tebow connected for another long pass, this one for a touchdown to end the game.

KrivoyRog and ozzz2002 were perfect this week and take an early lead over the rest of the field.
