I just went with the Ravens because my picking record is so bad I have nothing to lose.
Lol, can't be any worst than mine. But, anything is possible you know. The Ravens are going to give it everything they got, a win and a Steelers loss at New Orleans and they will be division leaders. Being a Steelers fan, I pulling for the Chargers also, I don't give the Steelers much of a chance against the Saints.

it doesn't matter, whoever gets the #4 seed, they are screwed because they would have to play the Chiefs or Chargers in the wild card weekend and then if they get past that they have to get on a plane and play Chiefs/Chargers back to back just to make it to the AFC championship game.....the #4 seed has to play the 2 top AFC teams back to back.....that's a tough path in that seed.

I think the easier route to the AFC championship game is the #2 seed and #3 seed.......once the playoff picture is clear you will see what I'm talking about.

Oh I agree, it's a tough road for the #4 seed no doubt. I just still want to see them win the division at least. If they were playing like the team that won those 5 games in a row, to go to 7-2-1, then that team would have a fighting chance. I don't know where that team went, they never make it easy. At one point they were the #2 seed and could have been the #1 seed, then the 3 game skid and the Conner injury.

I am not changing my picks, even though I am in last place, being like the Pesky Red Birds or Raiders is not so bad at times......

Last week: 9-7
Overall: 143-79-2

Washington @ Tennessee. If Tennessee is serious about a shot at making the playoffs, this is a game they MUST win.
Baltimore @ Los Angeles Chargers. This is one of the better games of the weekend. I'll take the Chargers at home.

Cincinnati @ Cleveland. Browns at home still with a chance to finish with a winning record.
Tampa Bay @ Dallas. Cowboys rebound from the Colts fiasco last weekend.
Minnesota @ Detroit. 2 bad teams, I'll take the Vikes on the road.
New York Giants @ Indianapolis. See the Washington/Tennessee game. If the Colts want a chance at the playoffs, this is a game they MUST win as well.
Jacksonville @ Miami. Battle of Florida which the Dolphins will prevail.
Buffalo @ New England. In what is an oddity in the Brady & Bill era, the Pats are playing a week 16 game WITHOUT the division officially sewn up, but that will change as they officially lock up the East with a win.
Green Bay @ New York Jets. Get their first road win in the last road game they'll play in the season.
Houston @ Philadelphia. Texans stay ahead of the Pats in the race for the 2nd bye in the AFC playoff race.
Atlanta @ Carolina. Both disappointing teams, but the Falcons are more excusable because the Falcons have injuries up and down the roster. I wonder if River boat Ron survives this fall??
Los Angeles Rams @ Arizona. Rams rebound easily over Colt's Cards.
Chicago @ San Francisco. I'll take the Bears at home.
Pittsburgh @ New Orleans. Fun game, should have a bunch of points scored, but tough to pick against the Saints in the dome.
Kansas City @ Seattle. I'll be honestly, after starting the season 0-2, I thought the Seahawks were done, but look at that, here they are. They still have a pretty good home field advantage, this and Arrowhead are probably the 2 toughest places to play in the NFL, and the 12th man will be rocking on Sunday evening.

Denver @ Oakland. Imagine this: opening up early Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. You get a nice 75 inch TV to put in your living room, and your first game on that TV is this snooze fest

ipaper,

Can you do me a favor and edit your post so that your picks do not include my name in the quote.

It's just a little confusing as it looks like I actually made those picks rather than yourself. Best thing to doin the future is just copy and past I think rather than quote.

Thanks.

Oh, so my picks are so bad, you don't want to be associated with them I see. Lol, just kidding I'm sorry about, I will correct that next time around.
