Saints 32 @ 49ers 36: Prediction Results and Voting

Everyone's predictions about the Saints @ 49ers Divisional playoff made this past Friday have finally been tallied, analyzed and formatted accordingly. They can be found in their entirety following the jump.

There will be no need for a vote this week. We had only one member get all three predictions correct, so I am automatically crowning him our winner. That would be none other than metryman. So congrats to metryman for being the only one to not suck this week. Most of you can thank the Saints running game for screwing up your predictions.

Look over the results and enjoy! Thanks to everyone for playing this season. We will have one more for Super Bowl XLVI in a few weeks.
