NFL Wildcard Round Prediction Games Results

What a fun opening weekend of playoffs. Certainly was a bit more wild than years past. As sort of expected, three road teams claimed victory. Not so expected was the Chargers being one of the road winners. The Red Rifle turned into the Red Romo and eviscerated the very talented Bengals team from making a run. Probably have to go back to Jake Delhomme's 5 INT game back in 2008 to find a worse QB playoff performance. As a result, those who picked the Chargers sit at top the prediction leader board.

The other AFC contest was the game of the weekend. Alex Smith played the game of his life but was eclipsed by Andrew Luck. I still cannot figure out if I watched the beginning of unprecedented greatness from Luck or the worst defensive scheme in history of football. Was there any reason not to triple team TY Hilton the entire 2nd half? Did the safeties really have to keep an eye on Biff Whalen, is that his name? The picks for Stanford Derivative versus 49ers Derivative were about 50/50 across the board but no one predicted a shootout.

The two NFC contests were kind of weather induced slogfests. Both games ended with the loser helplessly watching a chip shot field goal which reminded beecharmer of her lousy Seahawks.

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.

Wildcard Eliminations

  • Takeo33, 49erfromItaly & danknerd49 - You scored 0 points. You're predictions weren't good ... in fact they were really bad. I got nothing else to say, get out of here, YOU'RE FIRED! [slipping out of my badly outdated Donald Trump impersonation]

B.I.T.© Contest Results

I always like it when a playoff contestant leads the B.I.T. © Contest. It justifies the other bracket. I also enjoy a nice bell curve in the results which this week had. McTee, Ten-Man and leaping_larry (back from the dead) getting some regular season respite. I say this every year, typically the winner of the B.I.T © is the one who pulls off the monster Divisional Round performance.

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.
