S&BP staff, community Super Bowl prediction winners

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Playoffs are over and the Seahawks were victorious (were they ever) over the Broncos. That means it's time to figure up the winners of our playoff prediction challenge for both the staff and the readers.

There was a tie atop the S&BP staff predictions with Jeff and SOB taking it. They both had just one incorrect pick among the conference champions and predicted the Super Bowl and the winner. Marcus also had the same result but I give the tie-breaker to Jeff and SOB for picking a team who played wildcard weekend. But if you want to go simply by the fact they all had just one incorrect pick, that's a damn good lookin three-way tie.

The best:
AFC AFC NFC NFC AFC Champ NFC Champ Super Bowl
Jeff Broncos Patriots Seahawks Packers Broncos Seahawks Seahawks
SOB Broncos Patriots Seahawks Eagles Broncos Seahawks Seahawks
Marcus Broncos Patriots Seahawks Panthers Broncos Seahawks Seahawks

The rest:
RDreamer Broncos Bengals Seahawks Eagles Broncos Seahawks Seahawks
Asher Broncos Bengals Seahawks Panthers Broncos Seahawks Broncos
Levi Broncos Bengals Seahawks Eagles Bengals Seahawks Seahawks

Among the community, there was similar success. The top three teams were just like the top three in the staff - with just one incorrect pick. The winner is uk_raider who, like Jeff and SOB, had a wildcard weekend team in the championship. Unlike Jeff and SOB, that team actually won a playoff game. Still, it was great work by Vodka and Valium and Silver and Black Storm to nail all but one pick.

The podium:
AFC AFC NFC NFC AFC Champ NFC Champ Super Bowl
uk_raider Broncos Patriots Seahawks Saints Broncos Seahawks Seahawks
Vodka and Valium Broncos Patriots Seahawks Panthers Broncos Seahawks Seahawks
Silver & Black Storm Broncos Patriots Seahawks Panthers Broncos Seahawks Seahawks

Honorable mention:
ChuyJess26 Broncos Patriots Seahawks 49ers Patriots Seahawks Seahawks
OaktownNative Broncos Colts Seahawks Eagles Broncos Seahawks Seahawks
senior dgaf Broncos Colts Seahawks Panthers Broncos Seahawks Seahawks

Overall it was a great turnout with some really impressive predictions. Once in the divisional round of the playoffs, there were still 26 entries whose conference championship game predictions had at least three teams still in the running. Of those, 10 had the Broncos and Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
