It was an 'All Favorites' kind of a week for the NFL Pickem crowd. Burgundy Burner led all players with a near perfect 15-1 record. Unfortunately, right behind him was season-leader McD5 also at 15-1, resulting in no ground being gained on the man to beat. A gaggle of players finished at 14-2 on the week, including MisterPinstripe, Ax, Jimbo, Lovethebeer, Canadian Hog, and IronMike.

On the season, McD5 continues his stranglehold on first place with a 4 game lead and an overall record of 179-76-1. Still within playoff striking distance of the championship are Lovethebeer at 174-81-1, and Burgundy Burner at 172-83-1. Many others are still in the running for NFL Pickem prizes, including Maverick, Jimbo, MisterPinstripe, Yusuf06, Canadian Hog, servumtuum, and Kel Varnsen.

I have updated the playoff schedule for Wildcard Weekend. Good luck to all of our players in the final stretch!

I am going with wild picks this week to make up for the mountain of a hole I have dug myself into this year!

Lol....I think I picked them three times this season. Maybe four.

The matchups today are so close.....this is the most difficult group of WC games that I can recall.

Yeah. Tough picking this weekend. I keep going back and forth in the GB-SF game.

I just don't see how San Fran is going to be able to adjust to that weather. They have the run game for it, but Krapernick is the key. I don't see him winning this game unless his defense plays lights out. Aaron Rodgers proved his worth last week and probably will again given the conditions.

I just checked Accuweather's forecast for Green Bay tomorrow.

The projected high for tomorrow is 0° F with a wind from the NW of 12mph with gusts to 22mph resulting in a wind chill factor of -17°.

Fun football weather

They are saying it will be the coldest NFL game in history. I thought about the Ice Bowl and if this will rival that day. I doubt it because of the technology available today. Those guys didn't have the advantage of cold gear and sideline heaters like they'll see tomorrow.

3 out of 4 of these games could go either way.

I think the Ice Bowl in 1967 started at -13 degrees F so that would still be the coldest game in NFL history.

KC up by 6. Is it too late to change my KC pick now?
