    I'm glad I'm not responsible for figuring that stuff out.

    Wonder when the last time (if ever) a tie came in to play in the final game?

    Crazy as it may seem. The 49s vs the Rams could be a very good game.

    49s have won 4 in a row. Even though they are out of the playoffs, something is going on in San Francisco.

    (Side note: Dear Jim Harbaugh, please move to Indy and coach the Colts.)

    The Saints could have both the OROY and DROY in Kamara and Lattimore. Not a shabby draft.

    The stands will probably be 1/2 Panthers fans. Saints' fans always pull for the Falcons to lose :) Also crazy that the Panthers could get all the way to the 2 seed still, but the 3 teams ahead of them have to lose.

    The NFC South has been in playoffs mode for Week 16 and 17. Insane that the season could end with only 2 other divisions having 2 teams with winning records, and the NFCS will have 3, and one may miss the playoffs. *If* the Saints can beat the Bucs, they will be a 20-17 loss to ATL from sweeping the division.

    Cowboys ain't done playing. Iggles weren't too impressive last night at home. Cowboys coaches playing for their jobs.

    What's up with Derek Carr? I figured there might be a lag from last year's injury but he still looks like 1/2 the guy he was last year. Badly needs better receivers I know...but seems like more than that.

    Nice job on the playoff scenario Craig.

    last reg. season games:

    Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers
    Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans

    make or break for the Titans, possible home field for the steelers...all very important for these teams

    I see the Bills as having a 50/50 chance of getting in. Miami is tough at home, but still should be a win-able game. Ravens/Bengals and Chargers/Raiders should be competitive, though the Ravens and Chargers are playing much better football these days.

    Then the math dictates that you should bet the parlay on that! :)
    I don’t have the stomach for counting on the Bills AND Bengals to come thru for me!
