2009-2010 NFL Playoff Picks: Wildcard Round

Who will pick the most winners in 2010's bracket? (nfl.com/schedules)

It’s that time of year again. The NFL playoff schedule is set, and it a lot of drama to get there. Dallas racked up consecutive shutouts (over Washington and Philadelphia) for the first time in franchise history. It looks like their December/January slump might be over. We also saw Wes Welker go down for the year with a torn ACL and MCL, but based on the SoB collective, Julian Edelman (or as the media has been calling him, a Wes Welker Clone) should fill in nicely, at least against the Ravens. And if your name is Mike, then you’re an ornithologist, because you like the Cardinals.

In addition to picking winners of the games, the 11 expert participants also picked how many touchdowns both teams combined in each game would get, and home many yards the games top passer would throw for.

  • Correctly picking the winner of a game is worth two points.
  • Picking the number of combined touchdowns to within one is worth one point, or two points if guessed exactly right.
  • Picking the top passer’s passing yard total to within 50 is worth one point, or two points if guessed to within 10.
  • Any incorrect pick is worth zero points.

P.S. NFL Fantasy Pick ‘Em

NFL.com also hosted a Pick ‘Em, where participants picked one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, one kicker, and one team’s defense from the pool of all players in all games in a week. Points are allotted based on how each pick performed. Players can be switched out between weeks, but if they are left in any points they earned are doubled, tripled, then quadrupled for successive weeks. SoB also has a Pick ‘Em on nfl.com, though with only four SoB experts, that Pick ‘Em is a little less popular. The rest of the picks will be given when NFL’s host site makes them publicly available, or when the participants divulge them.

  1. If I calc’d this right, I lost by a point despite being the only entry with all four playoff games correctly picked. I got the outcomes I expected, but apparently not the types of games I thought we’d get.
