Week 15 Prediction Games: Race for the Playoffs


No one earned the right to get their likeness in the title.  The highest score from this week was 9 points, Joe Webb and the Vikings really threw a wrench into things.  The lack of scoring is good news if you currently have been locked in a playoff spot and not so good news if you need to move up quickly.  Still there was some movement on the board.

Lets go the Week 16 results ... one final week to go.

Week 16 Analysis

Everyone should be ashamed of themselves. This weeks performance was NFC West-ish. Looking at the results a big culprit was a lack of ties in scoring. Most notably because the Colts vs Raiders game turned out very predictable while the Jets vs Bears turned out to be very unpredictable.

The Tuesday night Vikings @ Eagles game turned out to be a huge waste. First because the delay put a huge dent in my schedule delaying the score results. Second because no one scored a damn point despite the wait.

The Week's Big 5 Prognosticators

McTee - You made it on the big boy list just in time. Not the most impressive performance but like the Rams someone has to win the top spot.

Haggardninja - Finishing the season strong. Call him Mr. December. I don't want to jinx him but I'm guessing this locks him into a playoff spot. He good position to take the regular season title next week.

ezoo - Fighting for his post season life. He's on the cusp with this weeks top showing but needs another good week to secure his spot.

grantmp - He's much better predictor than this year's campaign indicates. Maybe not the season he wanted but he's finishing on a high note.

PHUT!, Ninerfromacrossthepond - If this were NBA Jam PHUT! would be on fire. Ninerfromacrossthepond the HTML table bracket buster ... Lnd9er hasn't been taken?

Scoring Explained

Your prediction has these same three components as the actual game score.

1) If you predict the correct winner for an individual game, we will score your prediction against the actual game. If you predict the incorrect winner for an individual game, your prediction will not be scored.

2) Ideally, you will predict the exact point differential of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 45. If you predict a score with a PD of 45, the difference between your predicted PD and the actual PD is 0 (45 - 45 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

3) Ideally, you will predict the exact point total of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 65. If you predict a score with a PT of 65, the difference between your predicted PT and the actual PT is 0 (65 - 65 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

So, assuming that you predict the correct winner of the individual game, we simply add the difference between your predicted and the actual PD to the difference between your predicted and the actual PT. The closer this total is to zero, the better your prediction is. A zero exactly will always be a perfect prediction.

pPD = Predicted Point Differential
aPD = Actual Point Differential
pPT = Predicted Point Total
aPT = Actual Point Total
x = Subscore

|pPD - aPD| + |pPT - aPT| = x

That total becomes your subscore for each individual game. These subscores are then ranked, and the five best (including ALL ties) are awarded points. Perfect predictions are awarded 10 points. If the highest subscore for a particular game is not a perfect prediction, it is awarded 5 points. Points then follow in descending order, so that all of the second best predictions get 4 points, the third best all get 3 points, and so on.
