Not really, it was just for that one game. The rest I picked ‘normally’.

Obviously. ;) But this was more than my personal dislike of them, it’s because I think their playoff curse will continue.

AE never scored the brackets, so I took it upon myself.

AE - 4 points
bookworm - 4 points
Top - 2 points
KF - 1 point

As you can see, there was a tie from just scoring the advances, so to break it I used KF’s suggestion of tallying correct matchups because it seemed most fair. Because I was the only one to advance the Texans over the Bengals, the number of correct matches comes to 3 for me and 2 for AE. So I win. \:D/ It was really close, because no one had the Broncos over the Steelers, so that leg crumbled on everyone’s bracket. Unfortunately for Top and KF, putting the Bengals all the way through brought down the other leg as well, so their whole AFC side was destroyed almost immediately.


Since the method of tiebreaker was never ‘officially’ decided on, AE insists that we tied. I guess that means we do since it’s technically his contest, though he seemed to abandon it. So congratulations to both of us then.
