Wow, a lot of folks picking Buffalo to upset the Seahawks.

Marshawn Lynch has been on fire the last few weeks, and if you stack the box to stop Lynch, Wilson will pick you apart with Tate and Rice. But Seattle sucks on the road. should be a fun game to watch.

On games being moved from primetime, stations can protect a certain number of games they will not give up. With the way NFL scheduled all these late season division games I'm sure Fox/other stations knew which ones they would not let go.

yep, should be interesting over the next few weeks to see which games get flexed.

With the schedules being setup now to where there's a bunch of big divisional games the last few weeks of the season, there will be some great match ups to choose from.

This weekend is huge, I want 49ers to lose, Pack to win, possibly get 2nd seed. Of course, I'm counting on them winning next three games. Bears/Titans/Vikes should be doable if they turn off the noise around them and go one game at a time.

yeah, I'm not a big 9ers fan either. And its mostly because of harbaugh. Something about both the harbaughs just rubs me the wrong way. The whole hard nosed "tough guy" thing is kinda played out. But I like Kaepernick, gore, crabtree, and Manningham.

I've always liked GB, especially when the gunslinger was there for all those years. I know i'm beating a dead horse, but i'm still pissed about the Fail mary against Seattle. If the refs got it right and packers won, the Redskins would be the 6th seed in the playoffs right now!

I am thinking the Packers are going to have a tough time in week 17 against the Vikings in that stadium, particularly if the Vikes have a shot for a # 6 seed wildcard team. I think they win these next 2 games though. If my math serves me, the Pack clinch the division with a win over the Bears, and if the 49ers lose their next 2 games (very possible: at Patriots and at Seahawks), this would be the only scenario in which the game against the Vikings is relevant.
