@Frank Apisa,
I must be missing something. What does that post mean? George’s post was for the Wild Card round which completed.

My picks are:

Packers
Ravens
Chiefs
Saints

Then we are asked for our picks for the Conference Championships.

I am choosing the winner of the #4 game (Saints/Bucs) to beat the winner of the #1 game (Packers/Rams).

Then I am choosing the Super Bowl winner to be the AFC Champion.

(Or at least I hope that is what I am doing. George will let me know if I am incorrect.)

@Frank Apisa,
Frank,

The thrust of this part of the contest is to name all of the teams all of the way through. At least, that is how it’s been run in the past. Did you see how the other 3 people have submitted their picks?

Okay...then if my picks for the week-end are incorrect...then I am out at this point.

GEORGE:

Apparently, I misunderstood. Sorry. If I am supposed to pick from here on out by team name:

This week, I pick the Packers, the Ravens, the Chiefs, and the Saints.

In the conference Championship games, I pick:

NFC: Saints over the Packers.
AFC: Chiefs over the Ravens.

And my choice for final winner is:

Chiefs!

Let's break it down by steps.

Step 1
Frank picked the winners of the Division games.
Those games are:
Rams v Packers
Ravens v Bills
Browns v Chiefs
Buccaneers v Saints

Frank picked Packers, Ravens, Chiefs, and Saints by using a bold font on his
quote of my original post.

Step 2
Frank picked the winners of the Conference games.
For the NFC, Frank picked the Game 4 winner. I had to go back and look at
his Division picks to see that this is the Saints.
For the AFC, Frank picked the Game 3 winner. Going back to the
Division games again, I see that this is the Chiefs.

Step 3
Frank picked the winner of the Super Bowl. He picked the AFC Champion,
which, looking at his Conference picks I see is the winner of Game 3 of
the Division round. Looking at the Division round, I see that this is the
Chiefs.

It's an unconventional way of putting it, but I think I understand him.

Put simply:
Division -- Packers , Ravens, Chiefs, Saints
Conference -- Chiefs, Saints
Super Bowl -- Chiefs

I see Frank clarified, while I was writing my post.
We are in agreement.

And yes an early miss "Breaks your bracket".
