Time for the rest of my picks:

Buffalo @ Atlanta.- The Falcons have been hit hard by injuries and a tough schedule, and that's why they won't make the playoffs, but they're still a pretty good team. The Bills... are not.

Kansas City @ Cincinnati.- The Bengals will be dangerous come playoff time...

Oakland @ Cleveland.- Who the f*ck knows with these two teams?. I'm taking the Browns purely because Cribbs and Harrison, but, seriously, who knows?

Seattle @ Green Bay.- The Seahawks have been hit hard by injuries this year (again), but they still have been a disappointment. I thought they were good enough to stay up there with the Cards for the division title, and they even lost at home to a pitiful Bucs team. Meanwhile, Green Bay is the big unknown heading into the playoffs... they look pretty good, but then again, you don't lose to this year's Bucs if you really are pretty good.

Houston @ Miami.- Ricky Williams is having a truly big season for the Dolphins. Several years after his latest big season in the NFL. I don't know if that ever happened in NFL history.

Jacksonville @ New England.- The Jags D isn't as stout as it was, and the O is based on two players. That's not a great recipe to go against the Pats at Foxboro.

Tampa Bay @ New Orleans.- This game couldn't come at a better time for the Saints...

Carolina @ NY Giants.- Nicks is gonna be a big time WR. Exactly what Eli needed. With Steve Smith and Manningham, the Giants are set there.

Baltimore @ Pittsburgh.- Game of the week. The Ravens have to win out to secure a playoff spot, and this might be their toughest game. Still, expect a good dose of Ray Rice against a Steelers D that is looking so weak even Mike Tomlin doesn't trust them.

St. Louis @ Arizona.- See the Saints' entry...

Detroit @ San Francisco.- See the Cards entry...

NY Jets @ Indianapolis.- If the Colts don't rest their starters, the Jets don't have a chance.

Denver @ Philadelphia.- Denver has been teasing us all season long, but, truth is, they don't have enough talent to be a playoff team. Philly has, and will be really dangerous come playoff time.

Dallas @ Washington.- Washington is just waiting for Shanahan to make up his mind...

Minnesota @ Chicago.- Good chance for Minny to get back on the winning track. Although this game can be dangerous, because Lovie is gonna be fighting for his job.

Might be a bit of a sentimental pick as I cant stand the Chargers. Something about them really bug me while Fisher is my favorite coach in the NFL and I am pulling for them to make this amazing turnaround.

Chris Johnson has been sensational for me in Fantasy this year, and Vince Young has really turned it around. once they won two games in a row, this team began looking pretty special. And similar to you, i hate the chargers.

You got a lot of H8 for the AFC WEST..

Just curious Bada but being a Seahawks fan i kinda guess you hate the Lot of the AFC WEST.

In all Honesty mate... I'd like to see the KC Chiefs move out to the EAST COAST SLOT (With St Louis RAMS as well) and get a better alignment with DIVISONS

The Seahawks should move back into the AFC WEST... But i havn't yet figured out who would go into that position of the NFC WEST spot vacated by St Louis & SEA back into the AWEST.

I say seperate thread/competinoso anyone who usually doesn't compete can have a stab at guessing it. But i'd also much Prefer a preplayoff bracket where your choices are locked in and u make your picks before u know who advances to the playoff. Kind of like a march madness bracket.

but the thing is matchups are done by the whole seeding thing, so it changes around based on what goes on in the wildcard. Its not like NCAA where it is a hard bracket, the bracket changes in MLB and NFL leagues change (re-seeding as you will). You have to do it week by week.

Happy new year, everybody!!!

This is gonna be a tricky week, with lots of teams playing for nothing at all and others still in the hunt. Let's go with the picks:

Indianapolis @ Buffalo.- Indy keeps resting their starters (I don't get why they shouldn't, btw) and Buffalo's players are fighting to keep a roster spot for next year.

Jacksonville @ Cleveland.- Who needs Jamal Lewis in Cleveland?. Harrison and Cribbs are playing for big contracts, and that should be enough to defeat a Jags team that ain't as good as their record.

Chicago @ Detroit.- Cutler with another big game to end the season...

San Francisco @ St. Louis.- The Rams season can't end soon enough.

Pittsburgh @ Miami.- The Steelers will do their part, beating Miami on the road, but that won't be enough to save a disappointing season. Anytime you lose against the Chiefs and Raiders, you deserve what's coming for you.

NY Giants @ Minnesota.- I don't like how Minny is playing. Particularly, I don't like their secondary at all. But they still should be able to dispose of the Giants and get into the playoffs with a boost.

Atlanta @ Tampa Bay.- I'm taking my Bucs to win this one for several reasons: first, we're playing much better D since Rah fired Bates; second, our running game was really impressive against New Orleans; third, Freeman's big play ability gives us some hope in the passing game, fourth, we're at home, after a truly disappoint season with only one win at the RayJay, and the players will want to end the season with a win; fifth, half the team will be fighting to keep a roster spot next year...

New Orleans @ Carolina.- I don't like the way the Saints D is playing lately. Meanwhile, seems like the Panthers recent surge will allow Fox to keep his job for one more season.

New England @ Houston.- The Pats will also rest their starters vs Houston.

Philadelphia @ Dallas.- Tough game, and one of the few that really matters. I think Philly is good enough to beat the Cowboys on the road, and a truly dangerous team in the playoffs. Let's see if they prove me right or not.

Kansas City @ Denver.- Interesting note: Denver will be the third team to ever start 6-0 and miss the playoffs.

Baltimore @ Oakland.- The Raiders will be Ray Rice'd...

Green Bay @ Arizona.- The Cards are another dangerous team come playoff time. They're playing their best football of the season right now that they've found how to use Beanie Wells in their offense.

Washington @ San Diego.- San Diego is the best team in football right now, the one everybody wants to avoid.

Tennessee @ Seattle.- The Seahawks should be thinking about next season already, particularly about their future QB. Hasselbeck hasn't been any good this year.

Cincinnati @ NY Jets.- Another game that I think will be decided by the Bengals resting their starters.
