Both Pitt and Dallas are fighting for playoff spots. Why do you consider that the "odd ball" of those listed. The outcome of that game is very meaningfull to the playoff picture.

When you look at the playoff picture, many teams are fighting for spots! NFC is unbelievable! Packers are 9-4 but 3 teams are 8-5 right beneath them. After that 3 more teams are 7-6, very close and these last 3 games are very important.

Teams that are in the 7th, 8th spot have a chance if teams in the 6th lose. Bears and Steelers are both in the 6th seed, they need to win, season on the line from here on out.

Why is the Cowboys/Steelers game an oddball game listed? Both teams are well in the hunt for a playoff spot

Throw in the Saint Louis Rams at 6-6-1 and in the thick of it for a playoff spot and you have a very interesting NFC right now. That team is a potential dark horse. They are playing solid defense right now (as is the entire NFC West) and an offense that is doing just enough to keep them relevant.

As for me, the most exciting game is Broncos @ Ravens because I am a Broncos fan. The Broncos are 0-5 @ Ravens, but they have never played the Ravens with Manning as QB, and Manning has made it fashionable to torch the Ravens over the course of his career. So what wins out? The Broncos history vs the Ravens or Manning's?

What game is the most intriguing to you? I can't wait to see the Niners vs Pats game
Houston and Indy.

My picks....Baltimore, Giants, GB, Pitt, Houston, NE.

Pack and Bears, can't wait! Good picks but I would go with Denver over Baltimore. I'm very interested in 49ers/Pats as Packers are chasing Niners for 2nd seed provided they beat da Bears!

I like how the best game of the day falls on Sunday Night football. No one on this board can't argue that the Niners at Pats game is the best of the day.

I would consider the Rams in the thick of things since they are a loss away from being eliminated and need other teams to lose.

I usually watch the Packer games with a friend up at his house on his big screen.
But this week, six of the early games have playoff implications and I want to watch
somewhere with ALL six games. So a sports bar is where you will find me!

Are there 6 different games on at a sports bar? I thought it was normally the games that are scheduled in your local area.

For example, if I went to a sports bar down the street from my apartment, I would see these games at 1pm inside the bar

1pm Denver at Baltimore-CBS

1pm NY Giants at Atlanta--FOX
