Cowboys & Giants Still In NFL Playoffs Picture
The sleeping Steelers finally woke up, the almost-slumbering Chiefs sleepwalked their way to a win (barely, again) and the Jets are so hopeless their fans are getting mad when they actually win a game.
The NFL heads into its final regular season weekend with the the playoff picture as muddy as a New Orleans bayou. But that’s what makes it interesting, down to the last field goal. Note that due to New Year’s Eve, there is no Thursday game this week, nor is there a Sunday Night or Monday Night game. Instead they are on Sunday afternoon.
Here are this week’s bold picks, with winners in bold and confidence points in the far right column.

Breaking Down Why These NFL Teams Will Win (Or Lose)
The Cowboys are the best of the worst (hard to believe I’m writing this after watching them earlier in the season but the offense is finally hitting stride with Andy Dalton of all people at quarterback), the Rams are sure to rebound after being stuffed at Seattle, the Falcons will lose another close one and the Jets will win another one (why stop now?), the Steelers have finally woken up from their 3-game snooze, the Bills have too much for the Dolphins and the Packers are priming for the playoffs.
