NFL 2016 Playoff bracket update: Super Bowl predictions, picks

New, comments
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Super Bowl 50 is just days away now. And with it the end of the NFL season followed by the official start of the offseason (if there is such a thing). It will also be where we finally reach the conclusion of our bracket contest.

First our staff Super Bowl picks:

Asher Tyler RDreamer Jeff Marcus Levi
Panthers Panthers Panthers Broncos Broncos Panthers

The staff bracket contest is decided. Asher takes the win as the only one of us who had the Panthers in the Super Bowl. He has them winning it, so his bracket would look even better if that happened. Here are all of our brackets for your laugh-out-loud pleasure:

Wildcard round winners Asher Tyler Rdreamer Jeff Marcus Levi
AFC Chiefs Chiefs Chiefs Chiefs Chiefs Chiefs
AFC Steelers Steelers Steelers Steelers Bengals Steelers
NFC Seahawks Seahawks Seahawks Vikings Seahawks Seahawks
NFC Washington Packers Washington Washington Packers Packers
Division round winners
AFC Patriots Patriots Patriots Chiefs Patriots Chiefs
AFC Steelers Steelers Steelers Steelers Bengals Steelers
NFC Panthers Panthers Seahawks Panthers Seahawks Seahawks
NFC Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals
Conference champs
AFC Steelers Patriots Steelers Chiefs Bengals Chiefs
NFC Panthers Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals Seahawks
Super Bowl champs
Team Panthers Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals Seahawks

The community picks are down to two potential winners.
