Well, it’s a full day of NFL football! I didn’t pick last week because so many games were not played on Sunday. This week, all the games are played on Sunday! Unfortunately, because it’s the last week of the regular season, many of the games don’t hold any meaning to the teams playing. How do you pick games which hold no real meaning?
(8-7-0) Ravens Case in point. Doesn’t matter if the Ravens win or lose, they’re not making the post season. Same for the Bengals. I’m picking the Ravens ……
(9-6-0) Texans The Texans have clinched the division title, regardless of the outcome of this game.
(8-7-0) Buccaneers The Buccs are still technically in the playoff hunt ……. sort of. Here’s what has to happen for them to get there ….. The Bucs could miraculously earn a wild-card spot with a win + WAS tie + DET win + TEN win + IND win + DAL win + SF win.
Still I’m picking the Buccs.
(10-5-0) Steelers If the Browns manage to lose, they’ll have the #1 pick sown up!!!!
(13-2-0) Cowboys I guess I’ll pick the Boys in this meaningless game. Dallas has home field advantage throughout, regardless of anything. Were I the coach I would ensure Romo gets some playing time.
(7-8-0) Bills No Ryans on the sidelines for this game ….. weird.
(7-8-0) Vikings That was an epic collapse this season for the Vikes!
(7-8-0) Colts It’s reported that the game will be played without any defenses taking the field.
(13-2-0) Patriots Well, I want my Dolphins to win this one, but, the playoff home field is at stake here. The Dolphins are rolling with a backup QB, but, they do have Ajayi.
(11-4-0) Chiefs If the Chiefs win, and the Raiders lose, the Chiefs can win the division and a first round bye.
(6-8-1) Cardinals A most talented team which failed to make a serious playoff run.
(12-3-0) Raiders I don’t know how to pick this one. The game doesn’t mean anything for the Broncos, except they really don’t like the Raiders. The Raiders are without their young star QB …… the Raiders can clinch the division and first round bye with a win.
(8-6-1) Redskins The Redskins will secure the final NFC Wild Card spot with a win — if Green Bay-Detroit doesn’t end in a tie. The game doesn’t mean much for the Giants. So, I’m going with the Redskins.
(9-5-1) Seahawks The Seahawks need this game to get in playoff form. They can get a 1st round bye with a win and a Falcons loss.
(10-5-0) Falcons See above comment.
Well, those are my picks. What do you think?
Uhmm, apparently left out this huge game!
(9-6-0) Packers This game is all playoff implications! The victor wins the NFC North. The loser could miss the playoffs if the Washington Redskins win earlier in the day. Both teams make the playoffs with a tie. Of course, if the Redskins lose, then, they both would probably make it. While the Lions play better at home, they’re simply struggling of late, and the Packers are red hot.
