NFL Wildcard Playoff Round Prediction Games Results

So concludes the Wild Card Weekend. Wasn't exactly a championship performance for most of those in the Playoff pool but a few managed to show off their prowess turning in a stellar week. Given the games were a bit lack luster it should be expected the predictions came out a bit lack luster. Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder, if you had a strong week you'd agree nothing was wrong with those games.

A few remaining notes: Once I again I like the new layout changes, even got the contest featured on the front page last week. Can someone tell me how many garbage yards Calvin Johnson put up for Notre Dame in that beat down given by Alabama? Put all the eggs in one basket and waited 6 weeks for that ... have to love Division 1 college football. Has to be the most un-American entity in all of the United States. The old European Feudal system would be proud. The Lords will count their money while the serfs get tossed off their land. See you next season suckers!

Playoffs Results

We have eliminations this week with the Top 12 moving onto the Divisional Playoff Round. Next week the Top 8 will move onto the Conference Championship Round. Some notable names eliminated. We shall save the crying for the comment section but I'll take the moment to congratulate those still alive for getting this far.

Wild Card Weekend Eliminations

  • jbrown63 - Well that was disaster. About as many winners guessed correctly as Joe Webb had completions.
  • Ten-Man - No Conference Championships this season. Made it back to the playoffs but 1 and done for you, still you remain a perennial stalwart.
  • AKinferno - Was a good run but got burned this week because all the favorites covered instead of close games.
  • bradyk2 - Reminder to Generation Y, not showing up on time (or getting your picks in on time) will cost you.
  • Haggardninja - Oh boy Ninja, you've Bengal'ed your playoff birth the last two seasons. Also like the Bengals you were the closest to moving on.

Scoring Explained

Prediction Contest Rules and Guidelines

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.
