2015 Postseason

Our playoff predictions: Split between Walts, Corrente a top consensus



Football Zebras commentary

Our annual tradition is to predict which referees are assigned to the postseason and the Pro Bowl. As we find every year, there tends to be a razor-thin line at the playoff cut, so an omission on this list does not necessarily mean we thought the referee was not worthy of a playoff assignment. We simply ran out of room.

You can see how we did in previous years (2014, 2013, and 2012), and feel free to make your own predictions in the comments section below.
