A battle from the black and blue division (anybody remember when Tampa Bay was in the NFC Central?). Two teams going two different directions with two completely different identities. After being a very trendy pick to go far in the playoffs, the Lions have imploded this season under a sea of penalties, poor coaching, and questionable dirty play the Lions have receded back to being the doormats of the the NFC North.

The Packers had a rough start and are fighting some inconsistency with their defense and ability to run the ball, but they still have Rodgers and with the Bears ugly loss today, they can rise to the top of the division with a little room to spare. This should be a shootout with the high powered offenses and banged up defenses, but divisional games are always tough to predict. I'm sure there are a lot of interested fantasy owners with their first round playoff matchups hanging in the balance. Good luck and Post em'!

Already won my 1st round matchup so all that's left is to enjoy the Megatron show. If he breaks Rice's record maybe we can avoid hearing about that ridiculous Madden curse again.

Hopefully Cobb will have a good game, I sat Nicks and Alexander for him. Nicks had 16 points in my league, and Alexander had 27 points.

Can someone please explain to me how snow affects the offenses? I've been trying to figure this one out all week, but I have been unable to. Does it help out the offense more than it helps out the defense, or vice versa? How much does snow affect the passing game/running game?

He is definitely a viable option so we shouldnt expect complete duds like *cough* Myers, Rudolph, Brown and company :)

It hurts, but the rest of my team did good thanks to Charles, Ryan, Rice, and Marshall.

There's no heavy accumulation. Your skill players should be fine.

It generally favors the offense, assuming no steady wind. Offensive players know when they're going to cut and will adjust to the slippery conditions a split second before the defensive player can.

But what if there was heavy accumulation? How does that affect the game?
