1 @steeze 86%
2 @Gumchum 71%
3 @March 64%
3 @smol Kat 64%
5 @Auron 57%
6 @Heroine of the Dragon 53%
7 @Calamity Panfan 43%
8 @glux 36%
9 @Marilincarnation 29%

Everyone is eliminated from winning except Steeze and Dylan. For Dylan to win...
-Dolphins lose to Jags
-Dolphins beat Bills
-Giants beat Colts
-Giants lose to Cowboys

If the opposite of any one of those happens, Steeze will win.
If that exact scenario happens, it goes to tiebreakers, and Dylan will win on tiebreaker #2.

Its funny how the Bills might manage to be almost as bad as I thought they would be, but they just decided to win/lose completely different games than I thought. Football. :crazy:

So I am now cautiously optimistic about the Bills Qb situation for the first time in a loooooong time. Hopefully they fix that dreadful o-line and barren wide receiver core this offseason. $90 million in cap space should help somewhat.

Wild Card:
(6) Eagles over (3) Bears
(5) Seahawks over (4) Cowboys
(3) Texans over (6) Colts
(5) Chargers over (4) Ravens

Divisional:
(1) Saints over (6) Eagles
(2) Rams over (5) Seahawks
(5) Chargers over (1) Chiefs
(2) Patriots over (3) Texans

Conference:
(1) Saints over (2) Rams
(5) Chargers over (2) Patriots

Superbowl:
(1) Saints over (5) Chargers

Edit: I just read through everyone else's predictions after I thought about mine and god dammit ML, I thought I was on to something here.

Double Edit: I also just looked through that season spread sheet for the first time and thought it was kind of ironic how both me (a Bills fan) and Dylan (a Dolphins fan) thought we would both sweep each other, and ended up splitting the season series.

Strictly out of curiosity I put all teams' wins and losses from the past 6 (regular) seasons into a spreadsheet.

Some interesting things:
Obviously the best team is New England #1 74-22 (77.08%),
And (obviously) the worst is Cleveland #32 22.5/73.5 (23.44%)
Only a Tie is keeping Cleveland from being the exact opposite of New England
Perspective: New England is 3 seasons + 4 games ahead of Cleveland

Atlanta #19, is the only team not in the Top 16 that has been to the SuperBowl (in this span)
Detroit is 1 game above 50%, also 1 game into the Top 16 (see, we don't suck, we're average *sips Kool-Aid*)
LA Rams tied for most wins in the league in 2018, yet are still only T-17
Both LA teams (Rams, Chargers) are exactly 50% T-17
Kansas City is the only team in the Top 10 that has not had (or been tied for) most wins in at least once
4 AFC - 6 NFC in Top 10

Top 10 teams by division:
AFC East: New England is the only team above 50%, #1 74-22 (77.08%); next closest is Miami and Buffalo T-20 (46.88%)
AFC North: Pittsburgh #4 62.5-33.5 (59.38%)
AFC South: None; highest is Indianapolis T-13 52-44 (54.17%)
AFC West: Kansas City and Denver; #2 65-31 (67.71%), #6 57-39 (59.38%) respectively
NFC East: Dallas and Philadelphia; T-8 56-40 (58.33%)
NFC North: Green Bay; #10 54-42 (56.25%)
NFC South: Carolina and New Orleans; #5 58.5-37.5 (60.94%), T-7 56-40 (58.33%)
NFC West: Seattle; #3 64-32 (66.67%)

There's probably a lot more interesting stats there that I don't see.

Yeeeeah, sorry about sending any picks I just lost track of time for a couple of weeks. You know how it goes.

Anyway, I got the Pats winning 34-28. Marty came to me in a dream and let me peak at the sports almanack.

That's the only contribution I have left to give (sosorrysosorry)
