NFL Picks Contest
Playoffs - Divisional Round
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 Phil leading by one game going into this week, it was beginning to look rather likely that he would emerge victorious in our contest. However, we differed on 2 out of the 4 picks this week, and the tables have surprisingly turned. We each went out somewhat on a limb: Phil picked New Orleans to beat Minnesota, and I picked Baltimore to beat Tennessee. I would have loved to have seen Minnesota get booted out of the playoffs yet again (they now appear to be headed for the Super Bowl), but that didn't happen, and the Titans fell apart at home like the Jaguars did last year. With those results, I now own the one game advantage, with only 3 games left to pick.
