The NFL Predictions Feature – The Play-offs: Update

So, from the 32 teams that kicked off the season back in September, only 4 remain in the hunt for the big prize – the Lombardi Trophy awarded nfc trophyto the Super Bowl champion.

Fans of Seattle, San Francisco, New England and Denver will sit down in front of their televisions this coming weekend with their fingers crossed, hoping and praying that they will see their team make that one last step to the big game. In the AFC, Tom Brady’s Patriots are up against Peyton Manning and the Broncos – with an offense that has broken all kinds of records this season. On paper, the statistics may lean ever so slightly towards the Broncos, but then you have to factor in Manning’s less than glorious Play-off pedigree compared to Brady and his three Super Bowl rings. Over in the NFC, we have been handed the grudge match of the decade as Seattle host the 49ers. The regular season series was split 1-1 – a convincing win in Seattle and a narrow win at home for the 49ers, but as this one is in Seattle, with all the noise, I wonder if this puts the Seahawks just slightly in the ascendancy.

afc trophyAll that aside, there is the matter of the Play-off predictions. All the participants of my season-long prediction feature returned for one last stab, and some have already fallen by the wayside, including resident expert Adam Goldstein (@TailgateKnight) who saw his pick, the Carolina Panthers, fall short at home to the 49ers in the Divisional round. So, who’s left? Well, here’s who:

Me – Seattle
Adam Morton – San Francisco
Oliver Lines – Seattle
Paul Chambers – Seattle
James Griffiths – Seattle
Frazer Loveman – Denver
Martin Conn – Seattle
Neill Hamersley – Seattle
Mike Dandy – Seattle
Gary Jordan – New England
Liam Jenkins – Denver
James Moore – Denver
