2014 NFL Bracketology: Day 2

16 teams are now knocked out of the postseason bracket. Find out the results from Day One and make your picks for Round Two.


If I did not have a job, I would be spending every day this week inventing box scores for each of those games and building a multiple linear regression that would use percentage of votes as the independent variable, with points as the dependent variable.

Sadly, now is not the time. So during the rest of tournament I will only be collecting the results, writing the new polls and updating the bracket. Thanks to everyone who voted. If you enjoyed it, send it to your friends so we can increase the sample size. In my own way, I am using this as entertainment and to get an idea of how everyone feels about these teams before the playoffs, so the more votes the better. Enough exposition. Here are the results for Day 1 and how the brackets shape up going forward.

The winners are in bold. I am proud of everyone for making sure the defending champion Houston Texans went down, unlike last year when they took down the New England Patriots for the championship. In this round, the only real upset was the Dolphins beating the Cowboys. Just like in the real March Madness, the fun does not really start until the second round.

1.) Seattle Seahawks 94.22%

8.) Houston Texans 5.88%
