(PLEASE don't forget your email address; its the only way I'll know who sent these picks!!! Now continue to the list of teams below, and click on one team for each point value).


ONLY HIGHLIGHT EACH TEAM ONCE BELOW !!! Do not, for example, select Kansas City as your 12 point team and your 9 point team. Each team should be highlighted once, and only once.

11 point team:


10 point team:


9 point team:


8 point team:


7 point team:

Instructions:

1. Make your selection for the NFL playoffs, valuing each playoff team with a 1 point, 2 points, 3 points, etc., up to 12 points.

2. When each playoff game is over, you receive the # of points of the winner. Thus, you WILL receive points every game, no matter who wins.

3. After you make your selections COPY/PASTE THE CONFIRMATION PAGE !!! This will be your record of your selections. ALSO CONFIRM THAT YOU SELECT ONE TEAM AND ONE TEAM ONLY FOR EVERY POINT VALUE FROM 1 TO 12 !!!

4. The winner of the contest is the person with the most points after the Super Bowl.

HINT: You will have to balance out the value of a team with a bye in the first round. Obviously, a wild card team can potentially pick up more points than a bye team because they have the potential to play an extra game. However, a wild card team is only valuable if they win.

NOTE: Because of Web form limitations, it will be possible for you to select a teams more than once.
For example, you may be able to select New Orleans for BOTH 12 and for 11 points. I will do my best to check for such errors, but please CHECK YOUR OWN SELECTIONS AFTER YOU PRESS THE SEND BUTTON! You will receive a confirmation of your picks by the Web script; please copy/paste this confirmation when you see it on the screen, and save it for yourself. This screen is your "receipt" that you entered.

Just make certain that you have a team selected for 1 point, 2 points, 3 points, etc., and you will know that you sent correct picks. And make certain that each team is selected ONCE and ONLY ONCE
