NFL Playoff Pool...how to run?

So I ran a confidence pool all year at work and I'm going to do something for the playoffs as well. Because of the wild card weekend I can't do a bracket style pool.

The best I can come up with is pulling team names from a hat and then you ride that team to the Super Bowl. Winner take all.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

have people simply pick winners of each game and have the tiebreaker be total points scored in the Super Bowl (AFC team - 21 NFC team - 28; total is 49). Make people choose the points scored now and make sure there are no doubles and you should be set. so if you have two people with 9 right whoever was closet to 49 wins, if them picked 50 and 48 go with who doesn't go over or w/e you want. That's how we roll in my pool and it works pretty well

Or you have people do their own brackets and the most wins takes it.

Yea I didn't think brackets would work with wild card weekend and the fact that the lowest seed ends up with the highest seed that wins.

I'll just have to correct 40% of the people that don't get it even after I explain it to them.
