You’ve read, agreed and disagreed with our picks all season long, now it’s your turn to make your 2011/2012 NFL Playoff picks and predictions. What’s on the line? A DVD prize pack for the winner of each round and a $100 Visa gift card for the grand prize winner.
To enter your picks, simply fill out the form below. Start with your Wildcard Weekend picks and move on up to the Superbowl, including your predicted combined score. All you have to do is pick the winners of each round, do not worry about who you think they will be playing.
Here’s the twist… you’re going to get to re-pick the rest of the playoffs after each round. After the playoffs are complete, we’ll calculate each of your three pick sets and award the highest point total for each round the DVD prize. Then we’ll add up all three of the entries for the entire playoffs and the entrant with the highest point total wins the $100 gift card. See below for how each game will be scored and how tie-breakers will be handled.
The point breakdown per correct pick is as follows:
Wild Card (First) round: 2 points
Divisional (Second) Round: 4 points
