    Default NFL Pick-em's - Wildcard Bye Challenge

    For all the players that are currently playing in the yearly NFL Pick-em' Contest, this year I am adding a new unique twist.

    The top 16 players will automatically make the playoffs. HOWEVER, here is the twist. This year, I am giving posters a chance to make a 1st round bye, REGARDLESS of ranking..but instead based on the Wildcard Bye Challenge...

    For the next two weeks, please analyze, and think about how you think the playoff seeds will wind up for both the AFC and NFC. You have until 12:00am PST (3:00am EST) after the Monday Night Steelers vs Broncos game on week 9 to submit you picks. These picks will then be locked away after the conclusion of the Steelers-Broncos game until the end of the season. You have already seen a half a season of football, but can you accurately predict how it will unfold into the playoffs?

    After the season concludes, the picks from the Wild Card challenge will then be tallied. The TOP 2 of the NFL Pick-em' playoff posters (meaning the top 16 from the regular season) that have correctly guessed the most seeds from the teams that made the playoffs will receive a bye for the Wild Card round week, regardless of ranking. The rest of the posters will then be matched against each other for the wild card week, as determined by their regular season ranking.

    Here is how the tally system works for the seeds:

    AFC
    1. 4 points
    2. 4 points
    3. 3 points
    4. 3 points
    5. 2 points
    6. 2 points

    NFC

    1. 4 points
    2. 4 points
    3. 3 points
    4. 3 points
    5. 2 points
    6. 2 points

    IF there is a tie in points, then the seeding from the regular season goes into effect to break the tiebreaker.

    If any of you have any questions, just ask.

    As stated, you have until the end of week 9 to submit your picks, and they will be reserved and tallied at the end of the season.

    Cheers to the new twist..

    This is a pretty awesome twist. I'll give this some good thought and post my results.

    Have until after the Denver game right? So I can make changes up until that point, right?

    Yes, people can post their picks, and edit them up until the end of the Denver game. Once the end of the game, i'll collect them, and they are fixed until the end of the season.

    Yes.

    I won't count them until after the Steelers vs Broncos game is over. Just edit your picks if you wish to change them.
