KDP's 10 For 10: 2014 "Elite Eight" Playoff Brackets

Oh, you thought it was over? No sir! It's time to go to the brackets!

[Editor's Note] I've been pretty swamped over the last couple weeks, and this is when you truly appreciate people having your back. Hookerhome just gave me a call to inform me he had already set up the 2014 Playoff Bracket contest I normally run and had spaced on. Great dude, I turn the floor over to HH. -KD

First off, congratulations to our 2013 Regular Season champion, lsttexas! He joins BishopWest, Jebediah Flibberbrush, and CowboyBaby in winning the season-long competition. 2013 saw unprecedented participation and weekly 10 for 10 achievers; congrats to all who joined the Hall of Fame! I'd be remiss to not also extend a gracious thank you to hookerhome for another season of keeping everything running smoothly week in and week out. Truly a blessing to have his assistance in running this as we've expanded. I can't wait til next season to see if we can break 300 in a week!

Here is the complete scoreboard for 2013:

Playoff Contest

You didn't think the fun was over, did you? There are still eight teams alive and in the hunt for a Lombardi Trophy which means there are still games for you to pick. Contrary to popular belief... ok, personal belief, the NFL season didn't screech to a halt when the Cowboys were eliminated. Although it should have. Regardless, our pick'em contest starts anew for the divisional rounds of the tournament.

It's time to play PLAYOFF SEVEN FOR SEVEN!

Think NCAA brackets here, I need someone to correctly pick ALL 7 of the playoff games. That means that you have to pick the winners of this coming weekends four games, the Conference Championships AND the Super Bowl in the Meadowlands. If you pick even one game incorrectly, you are eliminated. And to make it all the more interesting, you have to predict all 7 games before THIS Saturday! That's right, just like March Madness.Here's a blank bracket:


Here are the remaining playoff games, including this weekend's kickoff times.

NFC Division Games:

Game 1: New Orleans at Seattle, Saturday 430p Eastern

Game 2: San Francisco at Carolina, Sunday 100p Eastern

AFC Division Games:

Game 3: Indianapolis at New England, Saturday 8p Eastern

Game 4: San Diego at Denver, Sunday 430p Eastern

Conference Championship Games:

Game 5 (NFC): Game 1 Winner vs Game 2 Winner

Game 6 (AFC): Game 3 Winner vs Game 4 Winner

Super Bowl:

Game 7: Game 5 Winner vs Game 6 Winner


Obviously, you must make a Super Bowl Final Score prediction because that will be used as a tiebreaker in case multiple people go Seven For Seven.

Here's a sample bracket, just copy/paste the template then bold the winners from this weekend. Move those teams into the appropriate slots for Games 5-7:

Game 1: New Orleans at Seattle

Game 2: San Francisco at Carolina

Game 3: Indianapolis at New England

Game 4: San Diego at Denver

Game 5 (NFC): Seattle vs San Francisco

Game 6 (AFC): New England vs Denver

Game 7: Seattle vs New England


All right, get those picks in!
