In a span of about 24 hours, the field of playoff contenders was cut by four. Eight teams move on to next week's round of the playoffs, leaving the Jets, 49ers, Dolphins, and Buccaneers behind. The only blanket pick this week was Green Bay over San Francisco, and that counts as a winning pick for us all. Among the other three games, however, there was quite a bit of dissent. But if you picked that the first 3 games would be won by the home team, and the last one by the away team, then you went 4-0 this week, like Kerry and Tony did. While on paper that mark looks good for Tony, it really doesn't do much to help his standings overall. Kerry, on the other hand, gains a huge early advantage by moving into sole possession of first place again, by two games. While Phil is not out of it yet by any means, that is definitely a tough hole to get out of.
