NFL Playoff Pick 'Em, Wild-Card-a-Palooza Edition: Pick the winners of Chiefs at Colts, Saints at Eagles, Chargers at Bengals and 49ers at Packers along with three other categories.

posted by rcade to football at 05:38 PM - 33 comments

The contest winner for the entire playoffs wins a Chimay Ale gift set (if over 21) or a $30 Amazon gift card (if under).

To play, pick the four winners and their margin of victory.

You get one point for picking the winner, one extra point for picking the spread within 30% of the spread (rounded down), and another extra point for picking the exact spread.

Example: If you pick San Diego over Cincinnati by 5, you earn two points if San Diego wins by 4 or 6 (5 times .30 rounded down is 1).

Points for the spread are only awarded when you get the winner right. Also, there will be additional one-point categories each week that vary. Entries due by first game's kickoff time.

This week, pick the following:

1. Chiefs at Colts (and spread)

2. Saints at Eagles (and spread)

3. Chargers at Bengals (and spread)

4. 49ers at Packers (and spread)

5. Quarterback with the most touchdown passes this weekend

6. Running back with the most rushing yards this weekend

7. One defensive player who will record a sack

Oh look, Jamaal Charles is knocked out of the game early with a concussion, and then the Colts stage one of the greatest comebacks in playoff history.

Guess I'll start clearing a space off on my mantel for the fabled Costanza...

Three games down and it has been a bloodbath! I have only Trent Cole's sack to avoid a shutout.

It seems like I cannot edit ("edit" is not showing)

A total collapse of epic proportions on my side. Looks like the Bengals ruined a few 4-for-4 picks.

As a Charger fan, I'm quite happy to lose that point. 4-0 road record against playoff teams!

Kaepernick beat all the running backs one week last year too, but was excluded by the wording. No one had Mark Ingram.
