Posted on December 23, 2007 by ChrisP I didn't get my picks down in words for the Thursday and Saturday games, but I was officially correct in both contests. The Steelers inched closer to the AFC North title, while the Cowboys inched closer to the No. 1 seed in the NFC. However, both teams that they defeated -- the Rams and the Panthers -- gave it their all on gameday. Full Story
The final wildcard spot in the NFC is on the line as the Vikings take on the Redskins in the only game of the week featuring two teams in a postseason race. Can Adrian Peterson continue to step up with season on the line?
Carson Palmer tossed six touchdowns in defeat back in Week 2 and would love nothing more than to spoil the Browns' playoff hopes. If the Browns win, they are officially "in" the postseason: can Jamal Lewis keep running hard?
The Texans may be mathematically eliminated, but they still want to finish above .500 for the first time in franchise history. What better way to do it than against the Indianapolis Colts, who probably won't rest players until next week?
What would a Vikings loss + a Saints win do? It would give the Saints the sixth playoff seed heading into Week 17. While Washington is trying to help themselves, they could inevitably just be helping Drew Brees and company.
