This is where all the games matter.
OK, obviously, in a 16-game season, all of 'em count heavily. Yet, now we are down to five games for every team besides the Browns and Titans (the last two bye teams, both off this week), which means there's juuuussssssst enough time for that 5-6 or 6-5 team to make its move, and for a division leader to crap the bed. Will that latter team be the Texans? Or the Lions? How about the Seahawks, whose offensive line looked awful Sunday? Could Seattle slide down the seed line?
Many football fans, though, caught the thriller in the Black Hole:
Well, Chris ... I got:
1) Ezekiel Elliott
2) Derek Carr
3) Tom Brady
4) Matthew Stafford
OK, enough dilly-dally. Below you'll see how I separate the serious contenders from the also-rans. The top 10? Pretty solid. After that? Football gumbo -- little bit of everything, but mostly the teams that will be home after New Year's. Your take is welcome, as always: @HarrisonNFL is the place.
Let the dissension commence!
