NFL 2007 Playoff Pick'em: Division Round

This weeks picks: If you notice any errors (or have html suggestions) let me know. The Games: Seattle at Green Bay - Saturday 4:30 Jacksonville at New England - Saturday 8:00 San Diego at Indianapolis - Sunday 1:00 New York at Dallas - Sunday 4:30 The Bonus: Each is worth one point, awarded independently and for exact answers only. 1. How many turnovers will there be this weekend? 2. Which team will have the best turnover ration? 3. What will the best turnover ratio be? (eg +3) Last week: An exciting weekend of football. A lot of points where awarded. While almost everyone's yard pick for the bonus fell within the margin, no one picked Hines Ward to have the most receiving yards and no one nailed the exact yardage, so no bonus points were awarded. And here we add some spacing so the table is visible. BoKnows playoff pick'ems.

Getting into it late, holden? Me, I'm gonna wait until Friday, see if there's any new injury news. Could be significant in this round, I figure.

So far ufez jones is the only one to pick the Jaguars.
posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 07:58 PM on January 10
This will be the new headline if the jags win. "Ufez Jones suspected of taking Pick 'Em enhancing substances after correct Jag's pick." You gotta watch how many of those PES (PEZ on the street) you eat, they'll get ya if don't watch out!

I can't believe that I'm not the only one picking San Diego over Indy.

Me neither - because these match-ups smell like 'domination week' in the NFL. Packers by 11 Dallas by 8 Indy by 14 Patriots by 17 14 turnovers, Indy +3

Thats a very good question, as turnover ratio is a very tieable category. Tieable...really?
posted by hawkguy at 05:32 PM on January 11
After all, they are my local team. I got that, owlhouse. Which is why I picked them as well. You can't do better than a football team from northeast Oz.
posted by Texan_lost_in_NY at 07:15 PM on January 11
However, Tex, if I take the circumpolar route, my local team would probably be the Pats. I'll let you know after the Superbowl...

Holy whuh, we're not even two minutes into the Seahawks/Packers game the Seahawks are already a +2 on the turnovers.
posted by NoMich at 03:44 PM on January 12
Yeah, well that didn't last- 28 to 17 going into half time. After the first 4 minutes, when the Hawks went up 14-0, the Packers have outscored them 28-3, scoring TDs on all 4 possessions if I'm not mistaken. Where'd the D go? On that last TD before the end of the half, a Hawk had Favre wrapped up... and just let him slip away. Where's the hustle?! How frustrating. Eh, let's just hope this is not how the Pats game goes... Go Pats! Btw, regarding turnovers: I think the tiebreaker should be if there's a tie in turnover differential, then whichever team forced the most turnovers wins the tie breaker (i.e., if you force 6 turnovers and give up 3, you'd win over the team that forced 5 and gave up 2). If there's still a tie after that, then we should just call both teams a winner.

In case of tie, both picks will be awarded points.
posted by apoch at 05:35 PM on January 12
Nobody picked the Packers by 22 I see. Of course 42 points in those conditions is very impressive.
posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 06:42 PM on January 12
A couple of people (owlhouse, BoKnows) did get points off the spread (15-29)

So far I am three for three. Of course it isn't looking good for Dallas at the moment.

I should've bought my lottery ticket last week.

A decidedly so-so outing for me...but I did pick the Giants.

The the Lord that I don't put money on playoff games. I should have let my five-year-old son pick the coolest names. Or throw darts.
posted by THX-1138 at 10:36 PM on January 13
I can't believe there were two people who nailed all 4 games- and hey, I think Monica Poland got a couple of spreads, including one right on, and Hater187 got all 4 games and a couple of in-the-range spread picks. Jaysus... can't wait to see how the standings look after this weekend... :(
posted by hincandenza at 11:54 PM on January 13
Evidently my head is so far up my @$$ I'm going to need a plexiglass navel to see the games next weekend. I bet "logic" against emotion; I favored the Giants, Packers and Chargers in my heart, but not my head. The rest of the picks will be easier for me now. Just write me in for NE, and kiss my *.
