Week 15 - Manwich for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Dessert!

The slate of games last week smelled worse than a bathroom at a freshman dorm hall on taco night... but this week's games are awesome!

Manwich Matchup of the Week #1
Philly @ Giants- One game... and the division title and the bye in the playoffs are probably in the line. The stakes don't get much higher. The Eagles won the first game, so I suppose that means the Giants should win this game. However... I believe that this season is all about a Vick vs. Falcons collision course. So... I'm going with the Eagles again!
Pick: Philly

Manwich Matchup of the Week #2
New Orleans @ Baltimore- Well... normally, bounce-back theory would tell me to pick Baltimore. However, they are completely susceptible to the passing game, so I'm going with the Saints.
Pick: New Orleans

Upset of the Week
Jets @ Pitt- Bounceback theory is in play. Jets just suffered a horrible loss (to the Dolphins). The Steelers have been winning a lot.
Pick: Jets

Opening Round Playoff Game #14
Teams that have been eliminated: Cleveland, St. Louis, Oakland (twicer), Detroit, Buffalo, Kansas City, San Fran, Denver, Arizona, Carolina, Tennessee, Washington, Indy! (lost to Dallas)
SF @ SD - Well, it doesn't get much crazier than this. Both teams have their backs against the wall and need help to get in. Good luck to everyone involved!
Pick: SD

Opening Round Playoff Game #15
Jacksonville @ Indy- Let's say Indy wins, then they win the next 2 games (Oakland, Tennessee). Let's say Jacksonville loses, but then they win the next 2 games (Wash, Hou ). They would both have the same record, would have split head-to-head, the same divisional records, and the same conference records. The next tiebreaker is then "record in common games." The Jaguars would be 4-4. The Colts would be 5-3. Thus... the Colts would move on!
Pick: Indy

KC @ St. Louis- In the unlikeliest game w/ playoff implications... I think Cassel is going to play and the Chiefs are going to complete the 4-game sweep of the NFC West (which leaves them at just 5-5 in the AFC, which includes a lucky win over Cleveland, Bufflo, and a really lucky win over San Diego).
Pick: KC

Houston @ Tenn - Pick: Houston (I think they are still trying at least)

Arizona @ CAR- Pick: CAR ( I think the Cardinals wasted their luck last week)
Cleveland @ Cincy- Pick: Cincy (losers of 10 straight get the perfect elixir... a Browns team that only plays to "not lose" by continously running up the middle)
Buff @ Miami- Okay... I'm going to pick Miami to win at home. I hope I don't get burned.
Pick: Miami
Wash @ Dallas- Pick: Washington (that was an unlucky loss last week, so they should win this week)
Detroit @ Tampa- Pick: Tampa
ATL @ Seattle- Pick: ATL
Denver @ Oakland- Did you know? The Raiders are 6-7... but 4-0 in the division!?! Pick: Oakland
GB @ New England- Sadly, Aaron Rodgers probably can't play this week. Matt Flynn has to save the season for Green Bay... and I don't think that's going to happen. Pick: New England
Chicago @ Minny- Pick: Chicago

Last Week: 12-4
Season: 127-78
Manwich: 12-3 (NE crushed the Bears. There is no pain in this dojo! No sensei!)
Upset of the Week: 10-13 (Missed Jacksonville over Oakland, but hit it big on the dysfunctional Arizona beating the dysfunctional Denver)

I'm taking the Titans (Houston is terrible), the Browns (Cincy is the worst team in the NFL) and the Cowbitches (Washington is quitting on Mike Shanahan).

I've got the Ravens, Steelers, and Cowboys.

I agree with Hitman. earth logic wins out
