What happens if you make it to the playoffs with all of the teams playing in the first round already used?

Re: Sweet Sixteen Rules

Sweet Sixteen Rules wrote:However, we feel that you should always have options, so for every pick you have left we will ensure that you have at least one NFL game on any week's schedule in which both teams are still available. Should that be impossible with the remaining teams you haven't picked yet, you'll be able to reuse the teams you picked in week 9. If that still doesn't give you enough games in which you could choose either team, the teams you used in week 10 will become available to you again, etc.

Example: Your only remaining teams are Baltimore, Houston, Tennessee, San Francisco, and Arizona. None of these teams play one another during the current week, leaving you without any game in which you could choose either side of the matchup. In this case, the teams you used in week 9 are added to your options.

I'm out of this but I was wondering what happens if we keep going at the same pace we're going at right now? I'm assuming we're going to have to go into the playoffs. How will that work. We'll have like 20 winners if we keep going at this pace.

You are correct. From the rules first page:

If more than one player is still standing at the end of the season, the game continues into the NFL playoffs (and those players will also earn our profound respect). Should this be the case, teams already chosen by a player from Week 9 of the regular season onward will remain unavailable

If all remaining players are eliminated in the same week, the game will continue with each of those players having one prediction.

If more than one player is still standing at the end of the playoffs, the player with the highest score in the Sweet Sixteen Playoff Edition contest shall be crowned the winner.

Just to make sure I'm understanding this right....here's what the possible second round of the playoffs could look like.

AFC:
New England at Indy
Cincinnati at Denver

NFC:
Tampa at Chicago
Carolina at Seattle

Now...assuming I have none of these teams left, I'd have to go with the team out of all of these that I most recently used? Which in this case would be Tampa, which I'll probably be using either next week or first round of the playoffs.

I thought if you had no teams left at all you got to use them all over again? :-? I probably will have to re-read the rules on that one. Maybe they have changed it for this year because it's just been crazy.

I think the rules right now say that you will have to have at least one game where you could pick either one team or the other. If you go back to week 9 and look at the teams you chose, you'll get those. If two teams that are playing each other aren't left on your list, then you add the teams from week 10 and so on until you get at least one game where you have both teams available. :-°

That's the way I understand them.

Let's ping Arlo for further clarification.
