    All the matchups are set.

    Bengals get The Raiders. Hopefully this is the year.

    Really don’t understand going Chiefs-Steelers in the prime time slot for Sunday. They’re gonna put a game with a 15.5 point spread in the biggest slot of the weekend?

    I mean, yea, Big Ben back in the playoffs, we get it…. But wow.


    I figured they’d go Cowboys-49’ers and hype the rematch of the 90’s dynasties all week long.

    That made no sense to put the most uncompetitive game (on paper) in the Sunday night slot. I would have bet on 49ers and Cowboys but not sure NBC had first pick...

    Ratings.

    People will watch it because it’s potentially Roethlisbergers final game. More eyes will be on that compared to the Cowboys.

    Not surprised with the Bengals draw though.

    Predictions:

    #4 Bengals 34 #5 Raiders 30
    #3 Bills 24 #6 Patriots 22
    #2 Bucs 28 #7 Eagles 14
    #3 Cowboys 37 #6 49ers 20
    #2 Chiefs 38 #7 Steelers 17
    #4 Rams 24 #5 Cardinals 17

    #1 Titans 34 #4 Bengals 24
    #3 Bills 37 #2 Chiefs 35
    #1 Packers 27 #4 Rams 17
    #2 Bucs 30 #3 Cowboys 27

    #1 Titans 31 #3 Bills 25
    #1 Packers 41 #2 Bucs 35

    Packers 38 Titans 34


    *I think the winner comes from the Rodgers/Brady match that i'm pretty confident will happen. I went with Green Bay because Brady is down 2 of his 3 top WRs and I expect Davante Adams will either be doubled or feast on Tampa's secondary.
    *The best game of this scenario and one I hope will happen is Bills-Titans round 2. Eight lead changes the last time these two met, and both teams were in good health at that time.
    *The most dangerous team from the NFC that makes me nervous about my predication is the Rams. In the AFC its the Bengals.
    *The teams I think have no shot at getting to the SuperBowl - Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh, and Arizona. Of those 4 the one that gives me pause is Arizona, but I see no way without Hopkins. Las Vegas is playing well, but I think Cincinnati's offense is too potent.
    *Even if it ends in defeat to Green Bay we are once again going to be shown why Tom Brady is the best to ever do it.

    **Corrections made to reflect correct matchups
    ***Corrections made.....again.....

    It will be weird ( but a good thing ) seeing the Patriots playing on the road in a playoff game.

    You may want to check these records again because I know the Bengals are wrong. It is 4-2 and the games we lost were by field goals to GB and SF.

    The fix was in. The Chargers called a time out at the end because Goodell called the sideline to tell them to let the Raiders score or else. The league could not handle the sportsbooks, with which they just signed a huge deal, losing that much money.

    I almost am serious about this.

    With all due respect to any gamblers here but F those people.

    Also Fantasy Owners could be thrown In. I think some of these rule changes to make it impossible to defend and induce stupid numbers in the passing game are pushed by that part of the industry. But I’m not paranoid and looking for conspiracies.

    And they quickly told the Chargers defense who gave up a big run to get into FG range and the players complied?
