Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions
Who to cheer for: Lions
Why cheer for them: The Packers might still be a favorite to make the playoffs, but they are stumbling right now. The Lions may be surging, but they're still a very long shot to make the playoffs. It would be nice for the Lions to beat the Packers while they're down as the Lions are not a real threat to make the postseason.
New York Jets @ New York Giants
Who to cheer for: Jets
Why cheer for them: At this point, cheer for every AFC team playing an NFC team.
Arizona Cardinals @ St. Louis Rams
Who to cheer for: Cardinals
Why cheer for them: With a loss, the Rams would be done, their season buried, and the players given up.
Seattle Seahawks @ Minnesota Vikings
Who to cheer for: Vikings
Why cheer for them: Everyone keeps saying the Seahawks are on fire, but they just lost Jimmy Graham for the season and their defense is terrible. The Seahawks have an easy schedule the next few weeks, so a loss to the Vikings would be a big help for the Bucs as they battle the Seahawks for one of the two wildcard spots.
San Francisco 49ers @ Chicago Bears
Who to cheer for: 49ers
Why cheer for them: I know it likely won't happen, but the Bears are do for a let down, right?
Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints
Who to cheer for: Panthers
Why cheer for them: The Bucs can't beat the Panthers, so let them win every game...except the last one! A loss for the Saints buries them and ends their season.
Dallas Cowboys @ Washington Redskins
Who to cheer for: Cowboys
Why cheer for them: The Cowboys are done and the Redskins are a sneaky streaking team.
