This being the last week of the season, and therefore play-off berths on the line, some of us were able to determine which games would mean the most to which teams. In particular, many of us believed the Raiders were just in a temporary lull and would beat the Jets. Satish, Phil, and Alan knew better, though. It appears Oakland is in bigger trouble than we all thought. Everyone except Alan and Beth knew that the Seahawks would have to win their game over Kansas City in order to possibly get in. Meanwhile, wins by playoff-bound teams San Francisco, Green Bay, Miami, New England, St. Louis, Chicago, and Baltimore were almost roundly predicted correctly. The big news this week, though, is that Phil finally breaks loose of his second-place chains and moves into a tie for first with Kerry. As they say when the playoffs begin, you start with a fresh slate, and everything that came before means nothing. It appears the same will hold true for our two contest leaders, as the playoffs will decide who wins this contest!

Email quotes from the week:

Phil: "On paper, these picks don't seem all that hard, but knowing how crazy things can get at the end of the season, this could blow up in my face."

Kerry: (commenting on DAL/DET) "Finally, I can actually pick Dallas and feel they can win - maybe"
(and commenting on ATL/STL) "St Louis - Can't go against Alan's favorite team of all time"

Tony: "There's no way I'm gonna let some girl (Susan) beat me. Even if I agree with her taste in music. . ."

Kerry: "Tony, not only will you get beat by 'some girl', you will get beat by some pregnant girl! Go Susan!"

Tony: "Lord help us if its a Kerry Jr."

Susan: "Actually, it'll probably be a Susan, Jr. (and I'll take her to all the concerts with me and bring her up right)!!!"
