So, now that Week 17 is over, complete with a Redskins collapse, the NFL has determined the team seeding and playoff matchups to lead up to Superbowl 51. I figured we should make a contest out of this, similar to that of the Regular Season pick contest, because we love competition on thus forum. Since there's not as many games, I volunteer to keep up with the standings and such like I did last season. Obviously, the goal here to guess as many games correctly as possible. If you get the most games right, you win... nothing! But you get a good feeling, at least, so there's that. I'll post the matchups prior to each week of the playoffs. There are four games in the first two weeks, then comes the Conference Championships and the Superbowl, which will all be used as tiebreakers (unless someone has a better way of doing it). If there is a tie heading into the Superbowl, like there was last year, we'll guess the score as the tiebreaker. Shoutout to AgentP, who won last year's competition by being the only person to pick the Broncos in Superbowl 50.

Here's how the final playoff seedings look after the regular season:

AFC

#1 New England Patriots (14-2)
#2 Kansas City Chiefs (12-4)
#3 Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5)
#4 Houston Texans (9-7)
#5 Oakland Raiders (12-4)
#6 Miami Dolphins (10-6)

NFC

#1 Dallas Cowboys (13-3)
#2 Atlanta Falcons (11-5)
#3 Seattle Seahawks (10-5-1)
#4 Winner of GB @ DET (10-6)
#5 New York Giants (11-5)
#6 Loser of GB @ DET (9-7)

I will post the Wild-Card Matchups tomorrow night, but I'd like to see who will be participating in the competition first. Good luck to all who do!

Alright, here are this weekend's Wild-Card matchups:

Saturday

#5 Oakland Raiders @ #4 Houston Texans

#6 Miami Dolphins @ #3 Pittsburgh Steelers

Sunday

#6 Detroit Lions @ #3 Seattle Seahawks

#5 New York Giants @ #4 Green Bay Packers

Last year, all four road teams won their Wild-Card matchups. I don't think that will happen this year, though. Those who have already joined the contest or wish to participate in the contest have until Saturday at 4:30 PM EST to get their picks in. I'll get mine in later.
