    Here's Week 16

    IMPORTANT: the bulk of the games (12 of them) are being played on SATURDAY, because this Sunday is Christmas day and the NFL only wants to kinda stay out of the NBA's way that day. Unless otherwise noted, these games are happening on Saturday, so adjust as needed.

    The Chargers/Browns game is a Pigskin Lick special: considering the Browns aren't going to win at Pittsburgh in Week 17, losing this game will basically guarantee the second 0-16 season of all time (the 2008 Lions team was wackier to watch, though!) However, the Chargers are mired in misery and the possibility of relocating after the season. They seem ripe to be Cleveland's only win. As a result, getting this game correctly, while still getting you just one point, will instead add two to your tiebreaker score.

    I might make Chiefs/Broncos a PP if the picks are even. No way in hell I'm making Lions/Cowboys one, though, I've learned my lesson.

    0-20 if you count the preseason. 08 Lions won all 4 of their preseason games. The Browns are so bad this year that they lost all of the preseason games.

    I was first for most of last season and every week I was above the average. This year, I maxed at 3rd place and have been below the average almost every week. Playoffs are the only games that matter, though.

    Before I continue, just a couple of things.

    Like the last few years, the postseason will work where players pick both a winner and a score, and get points based on a) you picked the winner and b) if the score was close enough. I'll explain it more next week but I'm positive most of you are vaguely aware of how it worked last year.

    As always, after the season, I remove everyone's worst week and post the "Official" final standings with which the postseason starting scores will be based off of.

    With that, here it is, Week 17, the final week of the regular season. Every game is on Sunday, no BS Thursday, Saturday or even Monday night games. In NBC's continued "wisdom", they made Packers/Lions the Sunday night game, so despite how evident and the obvious the Packers have this game in the bag, I've been obligated to make it a Pigskin Pick. I *might* make the Bucs and/or Redskins games PPs as well if the distributions are decent enough because chances are either of these two teams will take the final playoff spot in the NFC over the Lions.

    Even so, the outcome of the game only matters in terms of positioning if Washington loses. They'd both make the playoffs. They'd need Atlanta and Seattle to lose to get a first round bye... and Seattle is playing San Fran.

    New England (at) Miami - If Oakland played the early game, I'd completely pick Miami in this one. This is a trap game... I may still CoH.
