The 2020-21 World Famous Playoff Challenge is only down to the Super Bowl before it reveals its newest $500,000 champion. And Stephen Ranaghan now sits above all other teams, holding a slim 3.95-point lead over second-place Andrew Markowitz's Homies1 entry. While Ranaghan and Markowitz both rostered Travis Kelce, Markowitz will roll out Chris Godwin to go against Ranaghan's Tom Brady as the only unique remaining players in the top-10 of the competition.
On Conference Championship Weekend, Ranaghan was led by Kelce's 43.3, Tom Brady's 22.9, Davante Adams' 21.7 and Stefon Diggs' 13.7 points. Trailing both he and Markowitz in third is Dustin Coleman's DCandBO team that moved up one spot from last week. Paul3 owned by Josh Neblett also moved up two spots to fourth with Kyle Trewhella's Screwe and Chopped squad vaulting up to fifth place.
For a look at the top-20 teams in the Playoff Challenge after Conference Championship weekend, check out the list below:
|5||Screwed and Chopped||TREW||439.00|
|6||Trump is God 7||Nevadaman||437.20|
|7||Team Hairy Asses||ivantrbl||437.00|
|9||Against the WALL||drew4782||434.20|
|10||Kill 'em all||PeterTho||434.00|
|14||J and L 2||jsantoru||431.65|
|16||The Crushers 11||Nevadaman||431.20|
As if one heart-stopping tie between Eddie Brothers' MoEd and Jeff Oliva's BrokeStoner22 last week wasn't enough, they not only remain knotted again, but still for first place in the 2020-21 Footballguys Playoff Challenge as well. Kelce, Brady, Adams and Diggs were the culprits for their squads remaining in the lead again this past Sunday.
The top four entries from last week stayed the same with Adam Murphy in third place and Steve Wells in fourth. Ben Moss and Tony Cosentino flip-flopped between fifth and sixth place this week. Brothers and Oliva look likely to chop the $135,000 first- and second-place prizes unless a unique team--like Joseph Bencar's MarvMerchants in 14th place, eight points off the pace--can come up and grab the $100,000 after the Super Bowl. (With double points now, anything is possible!)

The 2020-21 FFPC Playoff Challenge #2 has a new leader as we head into the double points portion of the competition. The New Canaan Stumblers, led by Kelce, Aaron Rodgers (28.3), Leonard Fournette (18.4) and Diggs, and owned by Ryan Maynard now holds a 1.95-point lead over last week's co-leaders, JR Covelle and Christopher Weigert. Covelle and Wiegert will each have Brady as their Buccaneer instead of Maynard's Fournette next weekend.
Stephen Odabashian's Fasoolya and Yan Shurin's Modest Expectations each moved up three spots from this weekend to round out the top five entries in this contest. For a look at the top-20 teams in the Playoff Challenge #2 after the conference championships, check out the list below:

The second annual 2020-21 Footballguys Playoff Challenge #2 is nearly complete with TImothy Wash's Fourthdown franchise continuing to hold off all comers for the $10,000 reward. His squad kept that 3.9-point lead over Matthew Roberts, John Rogers and Michael Yaghi thanks to Kelce, Rodgers, Fournette and Diggs.
The only change among the top-five squads this week in Footballguys #2 was William Oglesby's team moving up into fifth from 15th after the Conference Championship match-ups. With the Brady/Kelce lineups looming in a seven-way tie for sixth, this will be one very interesting Super Bowl!
