With the WFT clinching the NFC East, the regular season is in the books and the matchups are set. That means it's time to fire this thread up for the 2021 playoffs.

Final seedings are below.

Make your picks for each game through SB LV in Tampa (including the final score of the SB).

As always, one point for each winner you pick.

Correctly selecting a winner in the Divisional Round gets you a point, regardless of whether you nailed the matchup.

I’ll track the results and post standings throughout the playoffs. Any entry posted in this thread before kickoff of the first playoff game next weekend will be in the mix.

Good luck.

=======

Final Seedings:

AFC:
1. KC (14-2) - Bye
2. BUF (13-3)
3. PIT (12-4)
4. TEN (11-5)
5. BAL (11-5)
6. CLE (11-5)
7. IND (11-5)

Round 1:
7 – IND @ 2 – BUF
6 – CLE @ 3 – PIT
5 – BAL @ 4 – TEN

Round 2:

Next lowest remaining seed (3-6) @ Highest remaining seed (2-5)


NFC:

2. NO (12-4)
3. SEA (12-4)
4. WAS (7-9)
5. TB (11-5)
6. LAR (10-6)
7. CHI (8-8)

Last year, Kutcher's Speed Limit came out on top. Who will reign supreme in 2021?

Good luck!

If there's one thing that's certain, there's going to be a team that's going to get screwed over by the Rona.

I would be very surprised if the Bucs get to the SB. Really I think people should expect both #1 seeds to get there, given that there's only one bye now.
