NFL Playoffs Challenge Conference Championships (Round 3) Results

S h a r e :

Conference Championships gave us one heck of a football game from a competitive and, “What the heck just happened?” stand point. And then there was the mismatch of all mismatches, which I was fortunately watching on delay and zipped through most of the second half. Here are the results for Round 3 of our NFL Playoffs Challenge, with just one Throwdown game to go for the Super Bowl pitting the Seattle Seahawks against the New England Patriots.

The NFL Playoffs Challenge is a competition where each contestant plays two Throwdown games per week of the NFL Playoffs (one game for Super Bowl), and we tally points for how well they performed in those challenges. Players earn 2 points for a win, plus 0.5 points if they win a challenge by 21 or more fantasy points. There is an also an additional 0.5 points awarded after the Super Bowl, for each time they drafted the eventual Super Bowl MVP in all of their Throwdown games in this contest.

We have 20 entries in the contest, prizes for Top 5 overall finishers, plus a weekly prize. Check the full rules and results from Wild-Card Weekend and Divisional Playoffs.

Round 3 Standings

If this was Throwdown1 vs. Throwdown2 competition, T1 is winning that battle hands down. T1 went 14-6 while T2 did the opposite, posting a 6-14 record for the Conference Championships. Based on the rankings, T1 generally took Rob Gronkowski first overall (if given the first pick), and T2 took Marshawn Lynch. One would think the records would be flipped, but maybe since T1 didn’t take a RB early, perhaps they were more likely to nab LeGarrette Blount and his 3 TD day.

tshnide was on fire this week! Not only did he win the weekly prize with a perfect 2 wins, both by 21+ points, but his closest competition was himself with his other entry! The #2 entry that topped our chart was the only entry to earn the full 5 points this week. Congrats!

Overall Standings

There is only one week to go in the contest and one game to play, but keep in mind that game is worth double points! Plus, the Super Bowl MVP bonus points will be awarded after the Super Bowl for all games played throughout the contest.

Things got a lot tighter at the top of our overall standings. mikemar is still in first, but his 3 points lead over second place after the Divisional Playoffs dwindled down to just a single point. mikemar split his games this week, while Wilforkisland went 2-0.

After our top two, tshnide, gtrain and jeffNFL are all tied in points, and there are numerous entries right on their heels. Should be an exciting finish in our contest. Good luck!
