10th Annual Almost the Easiest Super Bowl Contest on the Web - Divisional Round Standings


Wow what a great weekend of football and what a surprise in the Ravens and Titans game.  Titans could be a real upset especially in this contest since no one picked them.  Also that Texans - Chiefs game was a little insane.  Glad to see my Packers could make it to the NFC championship game as well.

Ahem anyways we've got three weeks left till a champion is crowned. We lost a quite a few this week with the Ravens as heavy favorites this year. And instead of telling you how many we lost I can say we only have 11 left.  If the Titans pull of another upset next week could be very interesting.  Ahem but I'll address that if the time comes.  Here are your picks going into the Divisional Round if you're in Red you're out, good luck everyone next week.

10th Annual Almost the Easiest Super Bowl Contest on the Web - Official Entries


Wow what a last minute surge.  Looks like we ended up with 30 entries this year.  I probably didn't state it very well in my original post, but this year I'm not going to try and find a general prize for the winner and door prize, instead I'm just going to put together a nice prize package that caters to the winners.  Since I don't know who's going to win I'm not sure what will be included but rest assured it'll be good.  The feedback I've gotten from past winners is that that part of the prize was the best. So instead of dumping a huge lot of Boomer Esiason cards someone, and if you want a huge lot of Esiason cards let me know, I'll gift the winner with a nice prize package that may include autos and relics, depends on what I have laying around.

As I'm writing this I just watched the Bills/Texans game finish in overtime and holy moly what a great game.  Let's hope the rest of the playoffs are as entertaining.  Ok here are the official entries, copied over directly from the official sign-up post.  I didn't see anyone mention that they promoted the contest, shame on you guys, but if you did and forgot to add a comment, add a comment to this post with a link to the post, tweet, mention, ect.

10th Annual Almost the Easiest Super Bowl Contest on the Web Official Sign-up Post


Wow it seems like every year the NFL regular season flies by.  What a great bunch of games today especially the last game of the regular season.  I was rooting the Seahawks to give my Packers the #1 seed, but that's how it goes.  Should be a great playoffs.  This year marks my 10th, you read that right, 10th Annual Super Bowl contest.  And like usual it's super easy, just tell me who's going to win. We'll also have to have a few tie breakers as I'm sure more than one person will pick the correct team.  Over the year's we've had some great guesses that were very, very close.  This year I want you tell me who the opponent will be, total points scored (both teams combined), and for good measure total number of field goals in the game (both teams combined).

Your entry should look something like this:

Packers over Patriots, 56 points, 3 FGs

The tie breakers will go in that order.  Total points is closest over or under and same with field goals.  If for some reason those tie breakers don't settle the contest and we still have multiple winners I will decided the winner by random selection at random.org.

Like year's there will also be a door prize just for signing up.  All entries will be entered into a list randomizer over at Random.org and that list will be randomized 3 times.  Person at the top wins the door prize.  But wait want an extra entry for the door prize?  Just promote this contest on your blog, twitter, instagram, or any other social media platform and you'll be get an extra entry into the door prize drawing.  Only one extra entry per person though and please remember to leave a comment with a link to the promotion with your entry.

Whew.  Ok but what's up for grabs???  Well like usual the prize packages will be catered to the winner.  A nice stack of cards of the winners favorite team will be included, that might include relics or autographed cards, depends on what I have on hand. 

Oh and speaking of games starting, the Wild Card games kick off next Saturday.  So you have until Saturday, Jan 4th, 4:30 pm EST, 12:30 pm AKST to get you entry in. Don't put it off till the last second we had a few people forget to sign up for my World Series contest so get those entries in early.

OK here are the teams you get to choose from.

AFC
Baltimore Ravens
Kansas City Chiefs
New England Patriots
Houston Texans
Buffalo Bills
Tennessee Titans

NFC
Green Bay Packers
San Francisco 49ers
New Orleans Saints
Seattle Seahawks
Philadelphia Eagles
Minnesota Vikings

Good luck everybody.  I'll be posting reminders all week and putting posts up on my twitter, facebook groups, TCDB forums, and anywhere else I can think of.  I'll post the Grand and Door prize when I get those put together and I'll have a final entry post after kick off on Saturday.

Good luck everybody!!!
