Thanks for doing the work to put this week up early.  As I'll be out of town in the chilly confines of Minnesota, I need to pick early. 

Saturday, December 23

  • Colts at Ravens

  • Vikings at Packers - Rest assured that I will be watching this game with my brother.  I know Rodgers will have a hard-on to get back at the Vikes for what he perceives to be a dirty hit (it wasn't) that broke his collarbone.  Both teams have something to play for: for the Packers it's just to make the playoffs as a wildcard and for the Vikes it's home field advantage throughout.  I can never root for nor pick the hated Cheeseheads, so SKOL VIKINGS!!!!!!!

Sunday, December 24

  • Buccaneers at Panthers

  • Browns at Bears - This is definitely a game I can see the Browns winning despite a decent Bears D, but the Browns are the Browns.  They'll always find a way to lose.

  • Lions at Bengals

  • Dolphins at Chiefs

  • Bills at Patriots

  • Falcons at Saints

  • Chargers at Jets

  • Rams at Titans

  • Broncos at Redskins

  • Jaguars at 49ers

  • Giants at Cardinals

  • Seahawks at Cowboys

Monday, December 25

  • Steelers at Texans

  • Raiders at Eagles - I hope I'm wrong 'cause I want home field in the playoffs.

    Have at it, Hagerman!  And Happy Holidays!!!

Matt, I think the Packers bringing Rodgers back is a mistake. Normally, him returning would have me picking Green Bay, but no. He'll be playing with a chip on his shoulder, and the Packers aren't that great this year.

Saturday, December 23

  • Colts at Ravens

  • Vikings at Packers  Seems like the Pack is all but eliminated at this point.  If they shut down Rodgers then I take the Vikes but if AR starts, GB it is.

Sunday, December 24

  • Buccaneers at Panthers

  • Browns at Bears - Why not?  They definitely want to avoid 0-16 and this is realistically their last chance.

  • Lions at Bengals

  • Dolphins at Chiefs

  • Bills at Patriots

  • Falcons at Saints

  • Chargers at Jets

  • Rams at Titans

  • Broncos at Redskins

  • Jaguars at 49ers

  • Giants at Cardinals

  • Seahawks at Cowboys

Monday, December 25

  • Steelers at Texans

  • Raiders at Eagles

The whole reason I picked against Green Bay last week is Terry Bradshaw said Rodgers wasn't ready.

That's a damn good reason not to pick Green Bay.

(No, I'm not being sarcastic. Though he may act a goofball, Bradshaw knows his stuff.)

Saturday, December 23

  • Colts at Ravens

  • Lions at Bengals

  • Dolphins at Chiefs

  • Bills at Patriots

  • Falcons at Saints

  • Chargers at Jets

  • Rams at Titans  Let down after a huge win?

  • Colts at Ravens

  • Vikings at Packers- Go away Pac!

Sunday, December 24

  • Buccaneers at Panthers- Wish the Bucs would remember they were supposed to be a playoff team this year. Need Carolina to loose.

  • Browns at Bears

  • Lions at Bengals- Fingers crossed, Lions on life support. Haven't played well the last 5 games.

  • Dolphins at Chiefs

  • Bills at Patriots- Some creaking and hairline cracks but 9 consecutive divisions is most impressive.

  • Falcons at Saints- This game is a must watch

  • Chargers at Jets

  • Rams at Titans- Upset!

  • Broncos at Redskins

  • Jaguars at 49ers

  • Giants at Cardinals- I'm waffling on this one.

  • Seahawks at Cowboys

Monday, December 25

  • Steelers at Texans

  • Raiders at Eagles

   Almost no room for disagrees this week - which, given how this season has been going, leads me to wonder if Matt is about to have his worst week ever.

   But I'm not going to change anything.  The season is lost.  Time to try to win the last two weeks.

Saturday, December 23

  • Colts at Ravens

  • Vikings at Packers (MATT DISAGREES) - Just.  Because.

Sunday, December 24

  • Buccaneers at Panthers

  • Browns at Bears (MATT DISAGREES) - Come on Browns.  Do it for the pride of the AFC North!

  • Lions at Bengals - Bengals are dunzo.  That second half in Pittsburgh destroyed them.  The Coach Lewis thing didn't help either.

  • Dolphins at Chiefs - Almost changed this one.  Chiefs find ways to lose, but so do the Dolphins and they do it better.

  • Bills at Patriots - So tempted.  How many times do we see a team come through in a thriller and then melt down in a trap game the next week?  But that team is rarely, if ever, the Patriots.

  • Falcons at Saints - A consistent offense versus an inconsistent offense.

  • Chargers at Jets - Could be a stunner.

  • Rams at Titans - Rams shoring up their playoff seed.

  • Broncos at Redskins - ALMOST changed this one.  Both these teams have confounded me.

  • Jaguars at 49ers - Jimmy G faces a real defense.

  • Giants at Cardinals - A tale of two haplesses.

  • Seahawks at Cowboys - Might be a dull return to action for Elliot.  I see lots of passing yards for D.

Monday, December 25

  • Steelers at Texans - Remember what I said about big game hangovers?  Pittsburgh could fall to that here.  They always seem to be a 3rd seed.

  • Raiders at Eagles - Massacre?

Two slightly contrived disagrees.  But there's no drama this season anyway.  I'm sorry it wasn't more competitive.
