Football Contest: Playoff Schedule

With the Wild Card round in the books, we head to the second round of the playoffs.  Here is the latest bracket:

The schedule of posts:

Saturday, July 20 - 12:01 PM ET - Jaguars at Broncos
Saturday, July 20 - 5:01 PM ET - Packers at Rams
Sunday, July 21 - 12:01 PM ET - Cardinals at Giants
Sunday, July 21 - 5:01 PM ET - Ravens at Texans

In addition to the regular playoffs, I will also have a loser's bracket post tomorrow, July 19, at 5:01 PM ET.  There will also be a "best of the rest" gallery posted on Monday, July 22, at 5:01 PM ET that will show cards that were pulled by the eliminated teams.

I drummed up some paypal moolah and made a large card purchase from to facilitate the rest of the playoffs. 

These second round matchups will be decided by 4 blasters:

2010 & 2011 Gridiron Gear Blasters (80 cards each)
2010 & 2011 Gridiron Gear Blasters (77 cards each)

I don't need to make any special scoring remarks for these as they are similar to other blasters we've had.  Base cards are 1 point and inserts/parallels/RC are 2 points, with additional points awarded at my discretion.
