Nailed It! Divisional Round

By
Updated: January 17, 2013

nailed-it-4“There is no way all these games will be so high scoring — they never are in the playoffs.” 

That sentiment was expressed by our own Nonstopdrivel, and it seemed to be a view shared among all our prognosticators.  In a weekend where every team scored at least 28 points, we only had two correct predictions. So, while it was not a very good week for the Pantheon, you can still read on to find out who Nailed It!

Final score

These are the people who have (somehow) correctly predicted the final outcome of a game. The only shot that was called that could be considered more famous than these belongs to . Bow down before their wisdom! (And make sure you ask them for next week’s lotto numbers.)

  • None this round.

Scoring differential

These are the ones who correctly predicted the margin by which the victors would best their competition. These are also the ones to consult if you want to bet the spread.

  • Divisional Round: Houston @ New EnglandRaji boobs correctly predicted a 13-point victory for the Patriots.

Total combined score

These are those who somehow managed to pick the correct total score but did not have any clue in how the teams would actually get there. Still, if you want to bet an over/under, you could do worse than consulting with them.

  • None this week.

Winning team’s score

  • Divisional Round: Houston @ New Englandadambballn correctly predicted the Patriots would score 41 points in a victory.

Against the grain

Oftentimes, our picks will be unanimous. However, there are those who will sometimes walk their own path.

  • None this round.

Our predictions this week were as empty as the black book on Manti Te’o's nightstand.

Wrap-up

The Conference Championships have arrived, and I hope that things will go better for our prognosticators this week. The growth of the Pantheon has slowed considerably, but there is still time for more names to be added.  So if you would like to have your name forever enshrined in the vast expanse that is the internet, simply call your shot in the comment section below for any of the playoff games this round. I will be reviewing the comments, and keeping track.

Also, remember that you can still read about those who have made correct predictions in the past (or simply revel in your past greatness), by visiting our Pantheon. In the meantime, let’s give a little congratulatory clap to those who are listed in this article. Or not. Your choice.

New Bears coach Marc Trestman plans to put Jay Cutler's athleticism to use in his offense.

So Bruce Arians goes to Arizona, Ray Horton (DC) gets all pisspants and leaves to go to the Browns who also hire Mike Lombardi as VP of Player Personnel. A lot of moves that nobody cares about last night.

Seems like there should be a new article. This article is old and smells of past failures.

He and god are the same because they both decided to rest instead of going in there and finishing what they started

He might get mistaken for a fat lineman and get an ineligible man down field penalty.

I'm very curious to see what the Bears come up with for DC. It will be a reflection on Trestman and Emery, and give us a vision of where this team might head. It will also have a big impact on players this off season.

@First job: Beat the Packers @GreenAndGold 66 i believe racial jokes highlight differences in cultures and while stereotypes are not to be used across the board but there is an element of truth. Many businesses are successful targeting specific demographics and in a way that is stereotyping to. Deciding who you date there is an element of steteotyping or in choosing a job or where to live. To make any decision in life you are never going to have 100% of the info about it but need to make the decision based upon the facts and perceptions. Anyone telling you anything else is a liar
