The MOF playoff picture was solved entering Week 18, with the only thing to battle for was seeding. Last edition we saw the playoffs expand by 1 team in each conference, and now we have 6 wild-card games! Also including the extra game, we could see a champion with 20 wins in one season! That's extraordinary. With the MOF playoffs, its always a crap shoot. Just because you were dominant in the regular season, doesn't mean you will be dominant in the playoffs. Despite the unpredictability our staffers and I have sent in our picks for the playoffs! I hope you all enjoy.
*Remember all these predictions are very in depth. We go game by game with the current schedule and predict games 1 by 1 and that's how we come up with our algorithms. Remember this is all in good fun and for some, some bulletin board material! Enjoy

I wouldn't say I'm going out on a limb too much here to predict the Packers winning it all, but that's who I predicted to take the crown before the season started so I have to stay with that pick. In the AFC Wild-Card matchps, I don't see any upsets, although I think the Jets could give the Texans everything they can handle and if they do that, then we could see a Ravens/Dolphins AFC title game. I really am high on the Chiefs entering the playoffs, I think he's cut down on his turnovers and his offense is one of the best built we've ever seen, period. However I am leaning towards coach Betts making his unprecedented 14th Super Bowl appearance and looking for his 8th title. In the NFC I do not see many upsets either, especially given the fact that the Packers and 49ers are so strong in the wild-card round. I do like the defending champ Pettigrew and his Bears to upset the Panthers. We all know about Estrada's post-season failures but I think he will move passed the divisional round for a showdown with MackDaddy and the Packers in the NFC title game. We're going to see a great game, but as I mentioned above, I like the Packers to meet Miami for the title and the Packers to win 34-28.
Looking at the bracket shake out, I think I am going to roll with the Packers winning it all and that's not really a surprise here. Mack has been rolling with the Pack all season and if it wasn't for a crazy season scenario where Rodgers had to miss a game for "injury", Mack would have gone undefeated if you ask me. But let's take a look at the bracket right quick to see how we will get here. AFC Wild Card matchups, I see Texans winning a close game against the Jets. I think the Raiders are going to upset the Chiefs in a last play type of game and I will pull my own ticket and see if I can get these Ravens by the Colts. With that play out, I think the Dolphins beat the Raiders by more than 2 touchdowns and I see the Texans beating the Ravens in a close one. Dolphins will squeak out a win over the Texans in a downpour in Miami to send Coach Betts to yet another damn MOF Super Bowl. In the NFC Wild Card matchups, I see the Packers beating the Buccaneers, the 49ers beating the Cowboys in a close one, and the Bears upsetting the Panthers. In the NFC divisional round, I see the Football Team beating the Bears and the Packers beating the 49ers in a very close game setting up the NFC Championship game between the Packers and Football Team and I see that going to the Packers to set up the Super Bowl between two of the most successful MOF vets. I have the Packers winning it all for Season 62 MOF Super Bowl!!!!
