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.

Coming into the final week of regular-season picks, Phil led this contest by 1 game. While we differed on 3 picks this week, we both had better records than we've had over the past couple weeks. As for our opposing picks, Phil picked New England in an upset, underestimating the Dolphins' desire to win their division, and I picked Minnesota, underestimating the Colts' desire to win a playoff berth. With those picks splitting between us, my correct pick of Buffalo over Seattle tipped the scales in my favor, and leaves Phil and I in a stalemate going into the postseason.
