- ANSWER the tie-breakers.
- SUBMIT your completed bracket by 4:30 pm ET on Saturday, January 5.
Note: The playoff matchups in the Divisional round will automatically adjust based on the playoff seeds of the teams you have chosen to win the Wild Card games. (The highest seeded team always plays the lowest seeded team remaining).

Only one entry is allowed per person and/or e-mail address. You may change your picks anytime before the deadline.

- Margin of Victory in Wild Card games: 2 bonus points for correctly predicting the winning team and margin of victory (0-6 points, 7-13 points, or 14+ points)
The maximum possible score is 208 points.
- How many points will be scored by the AFC team in the final game?
