You called it: Fearless predictions (Week 19)
By Mike Sando
Those predicting a San Francisco 49ers "upset" victory over the favored New Orleans Saints have come to the right place.
Those expecting a Saints victory are welcome, too.
Simply use the comments section of this item to predict winners and scores for the divisional playoff round. Those making correct predictions will earn blog-wide renown through our enduring Wall of Fame. More on that in a bit. First, a look at the matchups:
- Denver at New England.
- Houston at Baltimore.
- New Orleans at San Francisco.
- New York Giants at Green Bay.
The chart above honors our repeat contest winners, including the recently added Superfuzz777 (I had overlooked his correct prediction for the Arizona Cardinals' 20-17 victory over Cleveland a few weeks back). A belated congratulations there.
The chart at the bottom shows all winners for the 2011 season. I saved predictions for the wild-card round and did not see any winners (no shame in missing that 24-2 score for the Giants and Atlanta Falcons). Let me know if I missed your correct prediction. Easily checked.
