Every game is crucial. Any loss could severely damage a team's chances.
Which teams want to play the spoiler role and which ones are mailing it in for 2013? Who will be that team that in November looked in good shape but at the end of December are on the outside looking in?
Which team will come from nowhere to sneak into the playoffs?
It's the most wonderful time of the year for football fans.
Let's get going!
Last Week: 11-5 68% Upset Specials: 0-2 0%
Season: 124-67 65% Upset Specials: 14-11 56%
Jaguars 2, Texans 0 - Break up the Jags! Jacksonville has a pretty favorable schedule down the stretch to serious jeopardize any shot they have of getting a decent QB. I hear Tim Tebow is still available.
Upset Special #1: Falcons 20, Packers 10 - I have absolutely no faith in the Packers beating anyone without Aaron Rodgers...and even if he is a late active, if he had to wait to Saturday to be cleared how effective could he be- even against the FAILcons?
Patriots 30, Browns 13 - Bill Belicheat and Tom Brady simply amaze me. Every year it looks like the Patriots have garbage for a team and every year somehow their team has double digit victories and division championships.
Upset Special #2: Raiders 17, Jets 3 - I picked the Jets originally but then I remembered that Geno will probably last a half before tossing 15 interceptions and getting benched for the immortal Matt Simms. Oh for the salad days of Mark Sanchez...
Buccaneers 20, Bills 13 - This will be an interesting game in that the Bucs showed a little quit last week against Carolina. Was it a one game thing or will players begin making "business decisions"?
