Unanimous selections

All of our writers were in unison on the following games:

Despite having locked up their playoff seed, the Bills are a heavy favorite to take care of business against the Jets - who are coming off an upset victory over the Steelers. Elsewhere, all of our writers envision the Cowboys bouncing back from a disastrous loss in Philadelphia last week. They have a juicy matchup against the Redskins on Sunday.

Unlike the Bills and Cowboys, the Saints have been on a roll lately and based on the predictions of our staff, they’ll continue their hot streak against the reeling Panthers. The Packers and Patriots are fighting for the No. 2 seed in the NFC and AFC, respectively, and are in a good position to do so with favorable matchups.

“Lone Wolf”

The following writers were alone in these selections:

With Daniel Jones back under center, the Giants offense showed signs of life against the Redskins in Week 16. With that being said, however, Adrian was the only writer to take New York to defeat the Eagles in the regular season finale.

In a battle of two struggling squads, the Browns were picked to beat the Bengals across the board with the exception of one vote from Kyle - who went out on a limb to take Cincinnati. Last but not least, Jakob is rolling with the Chargers over Kansas City in a AFC West showdown.

“Flip a coin”

The following matchups were the most evenly-picked:
