Predict NFL playoffs with interactive chart

 It’s a huge NFL playoff weekend with four great matchups in the divisional round games.

 Digital First Media has created an interactive chart to help predict which teams will win the games.

 It’s so easy even I could figure it out. You can put more or less emphasis on 10 factors such as home/road, turnover margin, points against and wins. It’s up to you.

 Data collected from playoff games dating back to 1971 was used in the model.

 It’s fun and, according to Digital First Media, it’s the only interactive model of its kind.

 It will be updated in weeks to come for the conference championships and the Super Bowl.

 The Oakland Press is under the Digital First Media umbrella. But I wouldn’t be promoting this unless it was fun,  simple to use and slightly addicting.

 Good luck!!
