It’s simple to play – just post your pick for the two Super Bowl teams, and the final score. Deadline for submissions will be 4:30 pm Eastern on Saturday, January 15th (just before kickoff of the first playoff game).

My Prediction:

Buccaneers 31, Bills 24

PLEASE NOTE: It’s not an absolute requirement, but it’s very helpful to me if you format your pick the same way I did above – “Winning team name and score, losing team name and score”, on its own line. No locations, just the name. Feel free to add any other commentary on a separate line. Thanks!

As always, just in case you don’t follow football but still wanna play along, just pick an AFC team, an NFC team, and a couple of numbers that sound vaguely football-scorish.

AFC Teams:

Titans, Chiefs, Bills, Bengals, Raiders, Patriots, Steelers

NFC Teams:

Packers, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Rams, Cardinals, 49ers, Eagles

Titans 38, Rams 27

Chiefs 31, Packers 27

Cowboys 45, Bills 7

Packers 33, Bills 17

Packers 36, Titans 27

Kansas City 37, Packers 33.

Packers 35, Bengals 23

Bengals 31 Cardinals 24

Chiefs 24, Buccaneers 20

Packers 23, Patriots 16

Packers 30, Chiefs 27

(in overtime, for bonus points) :wink:

Packers 31, Chiefs 17

I don’t know anything about football.

Patriots 35, Buccaneers 24.

Packers 27, Titans 13. Fuckin’ Rodgers.

Buccaneers 31, Chiefs 28.

Packers 34, Chiefs 28

It’s probably worth setting out the tiebreakers explicitly, since it always comes up at some point.

Packers 35, Titans 31

Cardinals 30, Bills 28

A missed FG last second, wide right

Bills 81 Packers 3
