Quiz Description

Similar to the "quizzes" the previous playoff weekends. Think of this like an Alpaca version of a party pool. NOTE: Alpaca Farm won't let a smith specify a grading time more than 7 days after a quiz is posted; however, I will not close this quiz until the morning of the Super Bowl (February 5th).

Questions:

Which team will win the game?

(As with previous playoff games we don't care about point spread. The Lombardi trophy isn't awarded based on who covers!)

Click to Reveal Answer
TBD

How long, within 5 seconds, will the performance of the national anthem last?

(For example, if this were a quiz about the Detroit Lions' 2016 Thanksgiving game, Aretha Franklin's legendary 4:35 performance would make any answer between 4:30 and 4:40 acceptable. Chances are Luke Bryan's time will be a bit lower.)

TBD

Two answers required. Name both the team that wins the coin toss and the outcome of the toss.

(For example, the correct answer for Super Bowl 50 would have been "Panthers / tails.")

TBD

Name any player to score at least one touchdown in the game. Last name is sufficient; answer "none" if you predict this game will have no touchdowns.

(For our purposes throwing a touchdown pass does NOT count as scoring a touchdown, but catches, runs, returns, and recoveries all do.)

Which player will lead this game in receiving yards?

Click to Reveal Answer
TBD

Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, both or neither? Which quarterback(s) will have at least 300 yards passing in this game?

(Note for shenanigan-proofing: Should some other player lead one of the teams in passing, this question will be deemed to be about that player instead. If Brady or Ryan breaks a leg in practice or something, we don't want to penalize people who submitted early.)

TBD

How many field goals will be made this game? (Both teams combined.)

Click to Reveal Answer
TBD

Not counting the original 0-0 score, how many times will the game have a tie score?

(For example, the correct answer for Super Bowl 50 would have been 0; the correct answer for Super Bowl 49 would have been 2, as it was 7-7 and then 14-14. Note that if one team were ahead 13-7 and the other team scored a touchdown, the game would be tied 13-13 pending the point after. But if one team were ahead 10-7 and the other team scored a touchdown, at no point would the game be tied 10-10.)

TBD

How many points will be scored in the final two minutes of the 4th quarter?

(Points count regardless of whether the game is on the line or it is garbage time.)

Click to Reveal Answer
TBD

Rounded down to the nearest 10 yards, how long will the longest touchdown be?

(For example, the longest touchdown of Super Bowl 50 went 2 yards, so 0 would have been uniquely correct; the longest touchdown of Super Bowl 49 went 22 yards, so 20 would have been uniquely correct. For a game with no touchdowns we would consider 0 to be uniquely correct.)

Football Squares! (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)

Please provide two digits (for example "03" or "77") that you think will be the unit digits of New England's score and Atlanta's score (IN THAT ORDER) at the end of any quarter (or the end of the game if the game goes to overtime).

(Examples, also with the AFC team's score first: the correct answers for Super Bowl 50 would have been 00, 37, 67, and 40; the correct answers for Super Bowl 49 would have been 00, 44, and 84.)
