Week 16... it's here. There's still some drama to be had, like well Santa Claus give me presents? Will Kwanzaa-bot also stop by during that time?
Manwich Matchup of the Week and Opening Round Playoff Game #16
Teams that have been eliminated: Cleveland, St. Louis, Oakland (twice), Detroit, Buffalo, Kansas City, San Fran (twice), Denver, Arizona, Carolina, Tennessee, Washington, Indy! (lost to Dallas), Jacksonville
Giants @ Green Bay- Well... it all comes down to this. One game. In Green Bay... and the winner is most likely going to be getting the last wildcard in the NFC. Green Bay is still unsure if Rodgers will be playing, though Flynn played pretty well last weekend. I think Flynn only played well because that's the name of the lead character in Tron: Legacy. However, this is the year of the bounceback... and if a team ever deserved a bounceback game, it would be the Giants, who had a soul-crushing defeat last week at the hands of DeSean Jackson and Mr. Vick. Pick: Giants
Upset of the Week
Baltimore @ Cleveland- Mangini only respects teams with good records... and his back is really up against a wall now after close, pathetic losses to the Bills and the Bengals. The Ravens just scored a huge victory... so I'm smelling letdown in the snow.
SF @ St. Louis- The fact that 5-9 San Fran is still alive and can easily win the division is just awesome. I think the Rams are going to win, only because the 49ers won earlier this season.
CAR @ Pitt - Pick: Pitt
Dallas @ Arizona- Pick: Dallas
Detroit @ Miami- Can the Dolphins please win a 2nd game at home? I'm beginning to get concerned for their coach... Pick: Miami
Minny @ Philly - Pick: Philly
Wash @ Jack- Pick: Jacksonville
Seattle @ Tampa- I don't trust the Seahawks outside the division. Pick: Tampa
NE @ Buff- Pick: New England
Jets @ Chicago- Pick: Jets
Tennesee @ KC- KC is undefeated at home somehow... but... I think it's going to finally end this week. Pick: Tennessee
Indy @ Oakland- Pick: Indy
Houston @ Denver- Pick: Houston
SD @ Cincy- Pick: SD
NO @ ATL- I think they are both making the playoffs... but the Saints are due for a bounce-back after getting tripped up against Baltimore.
Last Week: 12-4
Manwich: 13-4 (Philly miracled the Giants; New Orleans failed against Baltimore)
Upset of the Week: 11-13 (The Jets bounced back against the Steelers!)
