NFL Picks: Week 17 Results / Wild Card Picks





That's right everyone, we're done with the 2008 NFL Regular Season. You know what that means? It's the Playoffs!!




Before we get started, here's another comparison between an NFL star and somebody not playing football. This week will be Falcons DT Grady Jackson and WWE Star Big Daddy V "Viscera".




Here's the results from our final Double EXP Weekend of the season:

Failed 2-Point Conversions:

Jacksonville Jaguars losing to the Baltimore Ravens: xSgt MeatLoafx

Successful 2-Point Conversions:

Oakland Raiders defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Deus Legend, xSgt MeatLoafx, Stopable

Here are some more of those odd picks:

-Jerhawk was the ONLY idiot to pick the Detroit Lions, and of course got it WRONG. Poor Lions...
-Stopable got the Houston Texans CORRECT, and was the ONLY person to pick them over the Chicago Bears.
-Flynn4DaWin was the ONLY guy to get the Buffalo Bills WRONG.
-EVERYBODY got the Atlanta Falcons, San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers CORRECT.

The results from Week 17 Alone:

1.) Stopable / 14
T2.) Jerhawk / 11
T2.) Deus Legend / 11
T2.) xSgt MeatLoafx / 11
3.) Flynn4DaWin / 8

Did not pick: JRC 865 and Finch865

Our XBLN.com NFL Picks PowerRankings heading into the Playoffs, presented by Sprint:

1.) Jerhawk / 162
2.) Stopable / 158
3.) xSgt MeatLoafx / 157
4.) Flynn4DaWin / 150
5.) Deus Legend / 149
6.) JRC 865 / 140
7.) Finch865 / 85

So it looks like Stopable has overtaken Sgt MeatLoaf for second place, only four behind the leader Jerhawk.

And to JRC 865 and Finch865, you can still make your picks to the BCS Games this week if you'd like, but please make sure to pick for the game before it starts.

And finally, here are the Wild Card matchups. These will be worth 2 points each, no upsets or anything like that. Please have your picks in by Saturday before the first game (Falcons at Cardinals) begins. Thanks.

(5) Atlanta Falcons at (4) Arizona Cardinals

(5) Indianapolis Colts at (4) San Diego

(6) Baltimore Ravens at (3) Miami Dolphins

(6) Philadelphia Eagles at (3) Minnesota Vikings

Also, here's those Super Bowl picks that we made all the way back in Week 10. These are worth 5 points to whoever is somehow correct with their selection. Stopable's is only worth 1 point, since he just chose the Eagles this week. Let's see who is still good with those picks:

Jerhawk (Baltimore Ravens): Still in
Deus Legend (Atlanta Falcons): Still in
JRC 865 (Tennessee Titans): Still in (1st Round Bye)
Flynn4DaWin (Dallas Cowboys): Eliminated
xSgt MeatLoafx (Carolina Panthers): Still in (1st Round Bye)
Stopable (Philadelphia Eagles): Still in (only 1 point if correct)

Thanks everybody, and good luck!

  3. Well um, we did make those back in Week 10, but I'll make you a deal Stopable. If you get Philadelphia right for the Super Bowl pick, you'll only get 1 point, where everyone else has the opportunity for 5 points if they get their pick correct. Is that cool?
