    Since we have people here "that know things," it's a good idea to put their insights to work for financial gains $$$$$.

    Make your vote count!

    It was a tough decision since you didn't list the Browns. Perhaps next year.

    Sorry Random. As you know, the polling option only allows up to 10 choices. I just used who's currently the bookie favorites. Besides, Ohio's Super Bowl is Sunday. Can your brownies stop the Bengals? RG3 is starting.

    Yeah, that limit of 10 choices is rather unfortunate. That's the only things stopping me from posting a question about everyone's favorite letter of the English alphabet...

    Hopefully, the Browns season of perfection continues for the remainder of the regular season, culminating in the #1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. It's very difficult to finish a NFL regular season winless and untied; by losing their last 4 games, the Browns have an opportunity to match the dubious record of the 2008 Detroit Lions, who finished 0-16. So a lot is at stake for Cleveland in the next few weeks. A shot at history for yet another professional team from Cleveland in 2016, although this time the accomplishment might not be as celebrated as the NBA Championship by the Cavs or the AL Championship by the Indians.

    BTW, Ohio's version of the Super Bowl is tentatively scheduled for December 31st (Ohio State vs. Clemson).

    After last nights game, I may be leaning toward the Chiefs. That Hill dude is the real deal!

    The Chiefs looked pretty good last night. But I still have to go with the team that was so close last year and won it all 2 seasons ago. Except for that inexplicable pass at the end, the Browns, er, Seahawks would probably be in the running for a 3 peat.

    Good to see your brownies didn't blow it today! The hawks are looking good and may indeed lift another Lombardi. They should have easy going against the Pack, who have no ground game. Rogers will be on the ground a lot today.

    You forgot to take into account the Seahawks-Packers game was in Green Bay in December. Fortunately, the Browns did what they have done better than any team this outside of the 2008 Detroit Lions.

    Did you see Hawks last night? Wilson missed a lot of throws and that knee brace was giving him trouble. Their offense doesn't look like a Super Bowl winner. The Rams D is tuff, but the hawks need to work out some kinks. But they locked up playoff spot.

    True, and losing safety Earl Thomas won't help. But what NFC team is going to beat them? The Cowboys are playing well, but come playoff time, I'm not ready to pick Dallas -- a team with rookies starting at QB and RB (albeit playing behind a great O line) -- over a team that has played in 2 of the past 3 Super Bowls. What has Detroit won in all those seasons it has had Matthew Stafford at QB? Talk about regression to the mean being overdue, and it's probably coming (at Giants, at Cowboys, Packers). Giants and Packers likely won't win their division, so as long as Seattle wins the NFC West, I believe the NYG & GB wouldn't have home field (over Seattle) should either of those teams play the Seahawks in the playoffs.

    Hawks won the west last night. Right now they're no.3 seed behind Lions and Cowboys. I can't see Hawks beating the Boys at Jerry World. I can see Cowboys in the Superbowl. Should be fun.

    Seattle has been blown out in 1 game this season -- at Green Bay. Chalk that one up to a road game in cold weather and the Packers' sense of urgency to make the playoffs. As long as the Seahawks avoid cold weather, I think they have as good a shot as any team in the NFC. When Seattle plays well (I.e., at New England earlier), it's as good as any team in the NFL.

    You're right -- should be a wide-open playoffs.

    No surprise there, your picks are the equivalent of $204 across (meaning you got everything covered), my friend. :D

    Pittsburgh would likely have to go through New England or the Chiefs/Raiders to get to the Super Bowl -- and not have home field in all likelihood. Tough way to win the conference.

    It won't be easy for Big Ben to get another ring, but I hear the voices. Get your money on the Steelers now, before the odds drop. James Harrison wants a ring and he is a dangerous man.

    Sorry Twelve4s, I grew up in Cleveland. I can't get myself to root for (or bet on) the Steelers. Who knows, though, those voices you are hearing might be right. Or maybe they meant the (Pitt) Panthers over Northwestern in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

    Not to worry, my voices are wrong a lot. But WTF is the New Era Pinstripe Bowl? All the players wear sport coats?
