I may lay off the games altogether.
I mean, I have no idea who is going to win either of these two championship games.
Are the Falcons finally going to realize their potential, win the last game they’ll ever play in the Georgia Dome and march on into the Super Bowl or will Aaron Rodgers and the Packers continue their nearly unprecedented hot streak and shock the world?
Will Tom Brady and his New England Patriots achieve the ultimate redemption for DeflateGate by besting Pittsburgh or will the Steelers set aside Antonio Brown’s cell phone shenanigans and get one step closer to the franchise’s seventh Super Bowl.
My friends, your guess is as good as mine… which is why I’ve decided to bring back a contest from yesteryear.
Since the NFL’s Final Four (and ultimate Final One) is so difficult to predict, I’m hosting yet another contest. This year’s winner will receive a fabulous SportsChump prize pack, which does not include me washing your car, but will include a SportsChump t-shirt (supplies are running out) and a hardcover copy of Nick Eatman’s Friday, Saturday, Sunday in Texas: A Year in the Life of Lone Star Football, from High School to College to the Cowboys.
Here’s how I hosted the contest in the past. The rules will remain the same so follow closely.
Below, in vivid detail, I need your NFC Champion, your AFC Champion, your Super Bowl champion and your Super Bowl MVP. I also need total points scored in the Super Bowl as a tiebreak. Don’t just tell me who will win. Tell me WHY they will win.
You will receive 10 points for picking each championship game correctly, 15 points for picking the Super Bowl winner and 20 points for properly picking the MVP. Here’s where the tiebreak comes into play. I will subtract one point off your final score for each point you are away from the final total score, so you want to get it close.
Ladies and gentlemen, we had a pretty successful season picking football games. Let’s see how good you are at picking the final three.
