The APC playoff bracket challenge

Okay, so nobody else is doing a pick 'em (or if they are, they're cutting it close), so I thought I'd do a different kind of one. The points for correct picks are the seed picked & double with each round.
Wild Card: seed value
Divisional: seed value x2
Championship: seed value x4
Super Bowl: seed value x8

For example, a correctly predicted 6 seed Cin Bengals or Det Lions Super Bowl victory is worth 48 points for the SB pick alone (6x8=48). For tiebreaking purposes, predict the SB score.

NFC:
1 GB Packers
2 SF 49ers
3 NO Saints
4 NY Giants
5 Atl Falcons
6 Det Lions

AFC:
1 NE Patriots
2 Bal Ravens
3 Hou Texans
4 Den Broncos
5 Pit Steelers
6 Cin Bengals

Wild Card Round:
Det@NO
Atl@NYG
Cin@Hou
Pit@Den

Divisional Round:
NO/NYG/Atl@SF
Det/NYG/Atl@GB
Hou/Den/Pit@Bal
Cin/Den/Pit@NE

Championship Round:
remaining highest numbered AFC seed@remaining lowest numbered AFC seed
remaining highest numbered NFC seed@remaining lowest numbered NFC seed

Perfect brackets point values depend on the outcome of games, my perfect bracket would be worth 74 points.
