1st:  Mike Gordan:  0-0 (146-78)

2nd: Knobbe:  0-0 (141-83)

4th:  BigCat71:  0-0 (136-88)
5th:  drummer4god:  0-0 (130-94)
6th:  Miles Prower:  0-0 (126-98)
7th:  TecmoSuperFan:  0-0 (124-100)

 

Still am not sure on three of those games, though I am leaning more towards the Packers, Eagles, and Falcons.  Which is why I am lowercasing those three picks instead of the usual capitalizing.

 

Edit:  After a day or so of being frozen out of the comment section, I finally got to update the main topic.  As I don't feel all that confident in the Packers vs. Jets game, I'm pretty much going to change that pick to the Jets, while doubling down on the Eagles and Falcons.  Every other pick I've made is going to stand pat here.

These faves: Tn, LAC, Cle, Dal, Indy, Mia, NE, LAR, Chi, NO, KC, Phi (deservingly the smallest spread, Hou underwhelming @NYJ)

 

Pick em: I expect Rodgers to play and lead GB to victory in its last chance for a road win

 

My upsets:

Atl (Cam not looking good and I don't see the problematic Car D doing great 2nd wk in a row as they face an offense coming off a strong performance)

Det (didn't upset last wk as I expected but Mn is gonna pee in its pants)

Oak (probably last game ever there, there has to be something positive about the situation so I see them winning this)

Washington Redskins @ Tennessee Titans - Why, Part 15: Fuck making these rhyme.  Ah yes, a shit show match-up of the team injured to fuck, versus the team with a zero percent chance of making the playoffs.  I'll go with the Titans, I guess.

 

Baltimore Ravens @ Los Angeles Chargers - The Ravens are good, but the Chargers are a powerhouse at the moment.  I expect this will be close, but LAC will end up winning.

 

Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns - WOOOOOOOO MAGICAL BROWNS BULLSHIT MAGIC

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Dallas Cowboys - >Tampon Gay Fuckaqueers.  Dallas wins because fuck it.

 

Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions - The Vikings continue to somehow actually do things and by winning this, have about an 80% chance of making the playoffs.  We really don't deserve to, though.

 

New York Giants @ Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck slaughters more teams as usual.  All Hail the 2014 Colts, who traveled in time to play this season.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Miami Dolphins - Miami wins because Jacksonville is a nuclear wasteland that has killed all their talent with radiation poisoning.

 

Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots - Patriots beat the Bills as usual.  Nothing to see here, carry on.

 

Green Bay Packers @ New York Jets - I'll go with the odd choice here, but this will likely bite me in the ass.  However, Rodgers played like shit last week, and I really don't think the Packers give a fuck anymore.  Go for it, >Jest.

 

Houston Texans @ Philadelphia Eagles - Houston continues to destroy shit by spamming their Randy Moss incarnate, DeAndre Hopkins.

 

Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers - The Panthers choke more and eliminate themselves from the playoffs.  Press F to pay respects.  Just kidding, let's all laugh at the Panthers' failure.  Kek.

 

Los Angeles Rams @ Arizona Cardinals - Yes, the Rams are falling to shit, but there's no way they can lose to the CARDINALS, right?  Right?

 

Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers - Bring out your dead QBs, cause the Bears have killed their QBRs and knees before the game even begins.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers @ New Orleans Saints - This is a tough one to pick, but I'll go with the Saints, again. 

 

Kansas City Chiefs @ Seattle Seahawks - Kansas City nukes more shit.  There's really nothing to say here.  I guess it's a cool old school AFC West match-up?  I dunno.

 

Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders - Raiders meme a win from a struggling Broncos squad.

2nd: Knobbe:  1-1 (142-84)
3rd:  gojiphen malor:  1-1 (140-86)

Okay, might as well explain my picks now.  Better late than never, I guess.  No point in explaining my reasoning behind the Titans and Chargers since we know the out come of their respective games already, so let's move on:

 

Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns:  The Bungles are falling apart, and the Browns are red hot.  As such, I'm picking Cleveland to win, even though with the Ravens victory, the Browns are now officially eliminated from playoff contention.

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Dallas Cowboys:  If they beat the Bucs, the Cowboys can clinch the NFC East with one week to go.  The Bucs have nothing left to play for and are offensively dysfunctional, with explosive stats, yet turnovers out the wazoo.  As such, I'm picking the Cowboys.

 

Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions:  With the Redskins loss, the Vikings can clinch a playoff berth with a win and Eagles loss.  Even though the Lions have been a mess ever since they traded away Golden Tate, it should be noted that the Lions could still pull away with an upset.  But I'm still picking the Vikings.

 

New York Giants @ Indianapolis Colts:  The Colts have the potential to establish a winner-take-all season finale against the Titans next week with a win and a Steelers loss.  Their defense is pretty scary, and their offense has been productive.  The Giants are done.  So I'm picking the Colts.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Miami Dolphins:  While the Jaguars' defense could potentially steal a win and seal the Dolphins' fate, the fact remains that Cody Kessler is even worse at QB than Blake Bortles was.  Honestly, I have to lean more towards the Dolphins here.

 

Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots:  In the Brady-Belichick era, the Patriots have never lost at home to a rookie quarterback.  Additionally, they've lost three in a row only once back in 2002.  As such, I have to go with the Patriots by default.  God forbid the Patriots somehow land homefield advantage for the 8th time in the Brady-Belichick era.

 

Green Bay Packers @ New York Jets:  Oh, boy!  Neither team is any good, truth be told.  And while I like Aaron Rodgers a lot more than Sam Darnold, they did lose to the Arizona Cardinals at home before.  This one is going to be on the road, too, and they have yet to win on the road this season.  As such, I pretty much don't have much choice but to default to the Jets.  If nothing else, but so that I'm not potentially giving up a pick to somebody close by for no real reason.  Don't worry though; I'm sure I'll have plenty of opportunities to think things over.

 

Houston Texans @ Philadelphia Eagles:  Yeah, even though the smart choice is probably to stick with the Texans here, do note that they barely came away with a win a week ago against the Jets in New York last week.  In the month of December, homefield advantage is as big a deal as it has ever been before.  And on top of that, the Eagles are going to be hungry for a chance to make it back to the playoffs, and will find ways to greatly overachieve with a shot at possibly clinching the 6th and final seed a week later, if not the division itself should the Cowboys fall apart down the stretch.  Tough call, but I'm still going to go with the Eagles here.

 

Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers:  Even though the Panthers are still technically alive in the hunt for playoff contention--at least until the Cowboys and Vikings both win their respective games.  But considering the fact that the Panthers are amidst an epic collapse following a dominant 6-2 start--losing their last six games all in a row.  The Falcons have been pretty shitty as of late as well, but at least they've demonstrated just how much they've been underachieving with their dominant win against the Cardinals a week ago.  It's really hard to justify picking either team at this point.  But I am pretty much going to stick with the Falcons pretty much by default simply because Cam Newton is definitely not at 100%.

 

Los Angeles Rams @ Arizona Cardinals:  Even though the Rams seem to have been figured out offensively speaking (that an Todd Gurley isn't healthy), I still think they're going to defeat the Cardinals and at least remain in contention for a first round bye.

 

Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers:  Same logic applies to the Bears as it does to the Rams, even though the 49ers are not quite as bad by comparison.  If nothing else, the Bears have a really good defense.  Then again, they did beat the Seahawks last week, so who knows?

 

Pittsburgh Steelers @ New Orleans Saints:  Definitely a potential spoiler pick for the week.  I'd still go with the Saints though, simply because I don't think the Steelers match up well against the Saints.  But if they do somehow pull away with a major upset....good for them.0

 

Kansas City Chiefs @ Seattle Seahawks:  I'm pretty much picking the home team to win this one.  I realize that everyone in this group is picking the heavily favored Kansas City Chiefs.  But a major red flag that let me know that the Chiefs might not actually get it done this week came two weeks ago, shortly after the Kareem Hunt situation arose and the Chiefs barely escaped home with a win over the Baltimore Ravens defense.  Now they have to travel on the road to play the Seahawks and deal with their 12th Man!  Considering my constant paranoia about how the current NFL landscape appears to be shaping up, I still have a sneaky suspicion that not only are the Patriots going to secure a first round playoff bye, but possibly home field advantage as a whole.  And based on that suspicion alone, I believe that the Chiefs will lose against a team that's notoriously difficult to defeat at home and have literally everything on the line tomorrow night.  Win and they're in.  As such, I'm picking the Seahawks.

 

Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders:  As bad as the Raiders are, I'm pretty much just done with the Broncos.  Vance Joseph has proven time and time again that not only is he an incompetent head coach who does not give a shit about winning, but is an utterly gutless coach in must-win situations.  At least the Raiders have some semblance of swagger behind Jon Gruden.  May Vance Joseph take his diversity in his background (which was helpful exclusively in getting him hired in the first place and nothing else), and be shown the guillotine for gross incompetence.

 

Now, for my Weekly Survival Pick.  I'm picking the Colts.
