In the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, players play matchups based on seeding (1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, etc). The winner of 1v8 faces the winner of 4v5, and winner of 2v7 plays winner of 3v6 (See below). In this round, players will follow the same rules as in the Wild Card round, but will receive 3 points off their total for correctly predicting the total score in any game. If the player guesses the victor of all four games correctly, they will receive a further 3 points off their total. The "week winner" rule does not apply in the divisional round or any subsequent rounds. In the event of a tie, the player winning more regular season weeks will advance. If this does not break the tie, a coin flip will be used.

Wildcard rules, for reference:

Code:
In the Wildcard round of the NFL playoffs, these 8 posters will predict total points scored in each wildcard game, similar to how tiebreakers worked in the regular season. The only change is that there is no penalty for going over the total number of points in each game.  That is to say that if the total points in a game is 40, players guessing 37 and 43 both have a score of 3. Players will receive a bonus 2 points OFF their total for each week in the regular season where they were a week winner. Players will also predict the winner of each wildcard game, and will receive an additional point off for each correct prediction. Players will be seeded in reverse order of total (like in golf). In other words, based on the accuracy of their predictions.



From this point on, this competition becomes single elimination. If you lose your matchup, you are eliminated from the competition.


Seeding Results:

1- yomyyo; 18 points
2- Shaggybear; 19 points
3- Madmike90; 26 points
4- neener21; 29 points
5- Bowler1215; 33 points
6- pigsooie5; 37 points
7- MDbear4ever; 42 points
8- WindyCity; 56 points
