Go to week: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17
POSTSEASON: Wildcard | Divisional | Conference | Super Bowl

Each week, a friend of mine named Phil and I pick the winners of the games being played that week in the NFL.
Phil is a loyal Philadelphia Eagles fan, while I, of course, am an avid Green Bay Packers fan.

With the contest coming down to a mere three remaining games, I led by one game. But if anything has been proven by our contest this year, it's that leads simply do not hold! Any time that either Phil or I have led this contest, that lead was almost as shaky as a candidate's lead in a Gallup poll before the presidential election. So it was this week. Phil picked the Ravens to continue to beat their opponents into submission, while I picked the Raiders to rise above the oppression and win the championship. Phil had the correct crystal ball, and his winning pick pulled this contest back into a tie. With the winner possibly being determined by the Super Bowl (or it could remain a tie), I don't think I could have asked for a more exciting end to this contest!
