Every team in the postseason has a chance.
The NFL lives and breathes this any-given-Sunday mantra. Every 60-minute game can be decided by a few fluke bounces (Kyle Williams anyone?), regardless of the talent disparity of the two teams.
Thus, we can leave the regular season behind and focus solely on the playoffs because that is where careers are made.
Thus, I shall follow suit. I'm leaving my regular-season record behind and focusing on what's important. Sure, I fell six games short of the even-water mark, but that's all in the past.
All I want is a chance. And luckily, there is absolutely no criteria keeping me from picking the playoffs.
It also wouldn't hurt to win some money. Although my girlfriend keeps yammering on about some "girlfriend tax" on winnings. So in some ways that regular-season record was a blessing. Right?
I didn't think so either. Whatever. Just click through for my NFL Wild Card picks against the spread.
