Lions would be the division leader to not allow a TD and lose Monday night at home.

/c'mon pack, beat the steelers

I thought Detroit had already found every possible way to spectacularly go down in flames. I was wrong.

My wife says the lions do everything spectacularly, both winning and losing.  At least the NFC north is so farked that the Lions still have a decent chance.

Baltimore was already enamored with Tucker for many reasons, but you know there will be a rush to buy his jersey for Christmas gifts now.
 
2013-12-17 09:20:08 AM
Meanwhile, Lions running back Joi-kee Bell doesn't get his name pronounced properly until he's proven he deserves to have his name pronounced properly.

/srsly, Joi-kee? You didn't have 7 more yards in you?!

Maurice Jones-Drew has been vocal about his own fantasy teams in the past, so *finally.

The worst player in my league had Justin Tucker as his kicker.

The Lions need to win out and have at least one loss by the Packers or Bears next week to even have a chance.  I'm not really holding my breath at this point.
 
2013-12-17 09:29:21 AM
As someone who went into last night's semifinal up 1 on my opponent who only had Tucker and I still had Smith and Bell playing, I hate everything and am not getting a kick out of any replies.

Don't lose too much hope.  The Bear's defense is total shiat, so the Eagles could, and probably will, easily run all over them and win in Philly. Meanwhile I'm guessing the Packers and Steelers will be a close game, and even if the pack win I think the Bears will beat them the week after.  As for the Lions, all they need to do is beat the Giants and the Vikings, which shouldn't be too hard... right?  Guys?  Anybody?
 
2013-12-17 09:37:31 AM
Also, i just looked it up.  Eagles are first in rushing yards and the Bears are dead last in rush defense.  This is gonna be fun to watch.

Mark me down as another who got bounced from the playoffs by Justing Tucker last night.

/kill all kickers and remove kicking from the game all together

It's possible, and I'll be watching, but it does seem too much to hope for.

A friend of mine had a 16 point lead going into last night and a win would take him to our league's Super Bowl.

This is Fark. His opponent had Tucker.
 
2013-12-17 10:18:50 AM
If he had any money at all involved in his fantasy league he should be banned from football forever a la Pete Rose.

Briggs should be back and the Bears will finaly have a LB that can read and react propperly to a run.

Bears have the #32 run defense, Eagles have #1 run offense.
Eagles have the #31 pass defense, Bears have the #5 pass offense.

So yes, all kinds of interesting.

I was down 6 with Tucker and he had Smith. Oh, the trash I was talking last night!
Same guy I beat lost by .02 last year to get kept out of the playoffs.
I ALMOST feel bad.
Almost
 
2013-12-17 10:34:04 AM
I for one thank Justin Tucker for keeping my playoff semifinal loss competitive. Course if I had started Greg Jennings and Martellus Bennett instead of Andre Johnson and Charles Clay, I'd be in the finals instead of the consolation round.

BURN IN HELL, ANDRE JOHNSON!

Lance Briggs will be back next week, upgrading the Bears defense to merely bad.

Lions will always be their own worst enemy.

Lions need any of the following:
1. Week 16: GB Loss, Chicago Loss; Week 17: GB Win; Either week: Detroit win.
2. Week 16: Chicago Loss, Detroit Win; Week 17: Chicago Win, Detroit Win
3. Week 16: Detroit Win; Week 17: Detroit Win, GB Win

There are other scenarios involving tie, but I am too lazy to think them up

GB needs to equal or better Chicago and Detroit in week 16, then win week 17

Chicago can clinch with a win and a detroit and GB loss in week 16 or a week 17 win.

Eagles can score, but so can we.  Unlike previous years, being in a shootout doesn't create quite as big of a scare.
 
2013-12-17 11:24:47 AM
Another thing with the Eagles, they're averaging 26 pts (#7) a game.  Da Bears are #2 in the league with 29.  Let that sink in.  Da Bears, #2 in the league for Pts/game.

Week 17 is Bears v. Green Bay, which is always a great game to watch regardless.  Bears v. Green Bay, the winner goes to the playoffs?  And Green Bay might get Rodgers back for it?  That'd be an awesome game to see.

That said, looking at the remaining schedules:
Packers v. Steelers
Packers @ Bears

Bears @ Eagles
Bears v. Packers

Detroit v. Giants
Detroit @ Vikings

I still think Detroit has a great chance at making the playoffs.  I bet the Bears lose to the Eagles and who knows what Packers v. Steelers will bring.

Yep, should be awesome. I think Detroit is going to be in trouble, though. They essentially need to win out and need at least GB or Chicago to lose Week 16, since like you said, they play each other in Week 17.
 
2013-12-17 12:24:49 PM
Final week may see:

Baltimore at Cinncinatti for the AFCN.
Green Bay at Chicago for the NFCN.
Philadelphia at Dallas for the NFCE.

Which means we get to see Romo in another week 17 win or go home game in prime time. Because there's no way that doesn't get the night game. (A win by the Cowboys against Washington Sunday guarantees a division title match no matter what the Eagles do)

Also, the Patriots could be facing a win or go home week 17 game against the Bills.

The Bears are going to get Briggs back next week, and they have the #2 scoring offense in the entire NFL, behind only Denver.  Philly gave up 48 points to Matt Cassel and an AP-less Vikings team last week.

Something interesting for the last two weeks.

There are 4 second place division teams who control their own destinies:

Carolina (tied with New Orleans, behind by single game head-to-head tiebreak)
Dallas (game behind Philadelphia)
Green Bay (half game behind Chicago)
Baltimore (game behind Cincinnati)

If Carolina beats New Orleans this weekend (and Atlanta in week 17), they will have the better regular season record.

A win by Dallas over Philly means they own the head to head tiebreaker.
A win by Green Bay over Chicago means they would have a better record.
A win by Baltimore over Cincinnati means they would own the head to head tiebreaker.

Should be interesting.

They have to beat NE first. But I like the matchup at home, without Gronk and the Ravens on a roll. Which mean the Ravens will lose by 22 and Ray Rice will collide with J. Jones and both will be out of football forever....

Who knows, maybe the Eagles will do the Bears a favor and completely abandon the very effective run game in the second half like the Cowboys were nice enough to do?

I lost by less than a point because my opponent had Tucker.  I am sad.  That is all.
 
2013-12-17 01:48:51 PM
I had Justin Tucker.   Still lost by ~40 points in both my leagues.

Fark you very much Jamaal Charles.

The team with Justin Tucker lost welker, gronkowski and Rashad Jennings last week, and lost cruz this one.  The three replacements combined for a whopping total of 10 points.


Still happy with both teams though.  Almost all entirely drafted players (my NFL league only had 2 changes the entire year, Jason Campbell for Vick (only needed him for the week Romo was off), and when one of my colts receivers went on the IA, I grabbed Marvin Jones who also only played a single game.  Ended 2nd in the league.

Having been in GB for a week 17 game that could have ended the Packer season (1/2/10) but instead allowed them into the playoffs and led to their Super Bowl championship, I am afraid of this match-up. It will be cool if it comes down to this, but if the Packers sneak into the playoffs with a 1/2 game lead over the Bears (or Lions), I may cry. I have a lot of coworkers from Madison and a lot of cousins from the Milwaukee area, and there would be no end to it if the Pack goes on to great things in the playoffs.

I'll definitely be rooting for the Steelers this week.

I had Tucker. Still lost.

I also had Peterson, Gronkowski, Welker, and Rashad Jennings.

Still, I was down 25 points, with both Monday night defenses and he had Megatron.
I played the DET D, but even the Baltimore one would have left me with a 1 point loss.

We keep saying the NFC North and East are going to be one and done, but do we seriously think that New Orleans is going to go on the road and beat anybody in the playoffs this year, even if it's Chicago/Detroit/GreenBay/Dallas/Philly?  (Because Carolina wins the South, obviously.)

And you just know if the Packers go to Seattle in the divisional round, it's going to be a murderous payback for the replacement ref fail mary game.

I've got 3 out of 14 (yes, I have a problem) teams playing for league championships next weekend.  Would have been 4 except for Tucker, but I'm okay with taking a fantasy loss when it keeps the Ravens in the (realistic) playoff hunt.

Lost one other game this week by 0.46 points, but that was in a consolation bracket so I can deal with it.

New Orleans already won in Chicago this year, but then again playing in Chicago in January is likely to be a different story than playing in Chicago on October 6.
