Week 15 Open Discussion.

Week 15 brings several intriguing games with big playoff implications.

Green Bay @ Chicago: Green Bay can clinch the NFCN with a win. Chicago needs to win to stay in the hunt for a Wild Card.

Pittsburgh @ Dallas and Washington @ Cleveland: Both Dallas and Washington need to win to keep pace with the Giants who hold a 1 game lead in the NFCE. They both can also try to catch up to the Seahawks or Bears who are both 1 game ahead in the Wild Card race.

NY @ Atlanta: The Giants need a win to keep sole possession of first place in the NFCE, whereas Atlanta is looking to take the next step to securing the #1 seed in the NFC and HFA that goes with it.

Indy @ Houston: Houston is looking to hold onto the #1 seed in the AFC and the AFCS title for the 2nd year in a row, and Indy is looking to keep their division hopes alive. At the very least, they look secure to keep their Wild Card hopes intact.

Denver @ Baltimore: The Ravens will look to clinch the division, and both the Broncos, who already have won the AFCW, and the Ravens can keep their chances alive of securing a 1st round bye if...

SF @ NE:...the Pats fall to San Fran. The Pats need to win to help secure their chances of a first round bye. A loss would knock them out of the #2 seed automatically (for the moment), since the Ravens and Broncos play each other. The Ravens already have a win over the Pats, so a win over the Broncos, (with a Pats loss) would create a 3 way tie with the Ravens getting the 2 seed (for the moment) with head to head wins over both the Broncos and Pats. A Denver win (with a Pats loss) would put Denver 1 game ahead. San Fran needs a win to keep a hot Seattle team at arms length, with a head to head meeting in Seattle next week.

Should be a very interesting weekend of games.

The Browns will be sticking eight or even nine guys in the box on every down.

And I would have Alfred Morris on my fantasy team (he's on one of them anyway).

Are you a hidden Ravens fan or something? Half of your bogus post was about the ravens getting the second seed in which i'll say the eagles have a better chance to make the playoffs...oh wait.

There is a Broncos fan here now? Strange...

Go Giants!

Oh and I really don't think the Redskins win without RG3... I really don't see how they have any chance. Watch now it will happen lol.

:huh:

How am I a hidden Ravens fan by posting factual info? Did I predict the Ravens would get the 2nd seed? No I did not.

You might be interested in knowing I picked DENVER to win today. Oh damn, I must be a hidden Bronco fan!

Get over yourself already. What I said if factual. If the Ravens win, and the Pats lose, the Ravens will be sitting in the #2 seed at the end of the day.

I believe Green Bay beats Chicago easily. The Bears once had a 8-3 record. A easy schedule,a huge plus in turnover differential and defensive scores helped them

greatly. Since then the schedule has gotten tougher,the takeaways have stopped and they've started free falling. Imo, that free fall continues today.

NY @ Atlanta: The Giants need a win to keep sole possession of first place in the NFCE, whereas Atlanta is looking to take the next step to securing the #1 seed in the NFC and HFA that goes with it.

Indy @ Houston: Houston is looking to hold onto the #1 seed in the AFC and the AFCS title for the 2nd year in a row, and Indy is looking to keep their division hopes alive. At the very least, they look secure to keep their Wild Card hopes intact.

There is definitely some great matchups today. Imo, we'll find out a lot about the Falcons today. They've played a relatively weak schedule so far, but this is their

chance to make a statement. I saw where Roddy White is questionable with a sore knee. If he's out,that's a huge blow to their offense and a good break for the

Giants.

The Pats will also be a good measuring stick for the Niners. We'll see if Kapernick takes the next step. It's also a critical game for the Niners. If they lose and

Seattle runs the table,the Niners will be relegated to a Wild Card. I don't believe they'll get to the Super Bowl if they have to go the WC route.

They said on NFLN that White will play today. How effective he'll be remains to be seen.

San Fran is in a tough spot for sure.

The Eagles already played so they can't piss me off today. My fantasy football team didn't make the playoffs this year so it can't piss me off today. Lunch is in the oven and I'm looking forward to a nice afternoon on the couch watching Red Zone.

Falcons looking good. Looks like another team will win their first Super Bowl before the Eagles.

Surprised that Jaqua Parker didn't jump offsides when the Redskins acted like they were going for it on 4th and 1.
