The divisional playoffs are here! Jackie is currently leading the Eligible Receiver crew as the only one who still has a perfect bracket. Here are our thoughts on this week's games.

Wild Card Picks: 4 out of 4

Divisional Picks
Ravens @ Patriots: I am not doing anything silly like picking the Ravens. They have been so hot and cold all season, but with the cold in New England. They run away with this. If I had to pick a blow out this weekend, this would be it.

Panthers @ Seahawks: Am I the only one who thinks this is an extremely legitimate game? Sure the Hawks are probably going to win and that is my pick, BUT the Panthers are rolling, fresh, and heatlh. Cam Newton is playing pretty darn well. Expect this one to be closer than people think.

Cowboys @ Packers: I don't feel good about this pick, but I chose Green Bay, so I am sticking to my guns. This all comes down to QB play for me. Tony Romo in the cold vs. a possibly injured Aaron Rodgers.

Colts @ Broncos: I have not checked out the Denver weather report, but if it is chilly, it certainly comes into play. I still think the Broncos sneak this one with their newly found run game. It is better than the Colts' crappy one. Hard to believe I am discussing running games in this matchup, BUT I am.

Divisional Picks
Ravens @ Patriots: I like this Patriots team. Plus, Tom Brady wins at life. Why wouldn’t he win this game, too?

Cowboys @ Packers: Poor Aaron has a partially torn calf; that could prove to be problematic. He needs to be able to scramble to make a play, like he did against the Bears in Week 17 last season, or against the Dolphins in the last few minutes of that game this season. The calf will impact the game more than we would like. As for the Cowboys, I equally want them to lose. No one wants to see Chris Christie bouncing around in his ugly fucking red sweater. I can not stomach such a douchey, ass-kissing, dweeby, unmanly scene again. It was nauseating. Then there is this: "He's part of our mojo," [Jerry] Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "I want him there all the way. I'll tell you, if he's got enough mojo to pull this thing out, he ought to be looked at as president of the United States." Do not make my fucking game about your politics. Damn it all.

Colts @ Broncos: Because this faux Peyton...

Wild Card Picks: 2 out of 4

Divisional Picks
Ravens @ Patriots: This is one of those "I know deep down inside it's not going to happen, but it's what I want to happen so I'm going to pick it anyway" picks.

Panthers @ Seahawks: Last week when I was briefly concerned that the Cowboys were going to lose, I was feeling fired up and ready to pick a bar fight. My target was the douchecanoe bopping around SO HAPPY in a Cam Newton jersey. Your team sucks, you needed an extra week just to get a 50/50 record, you don't deserve to be in the playoffs, I hate you.

Cowboys @ Packers: My Tony Romo jersey and I are ready. Well, we'll be ready after I call Monty for 700 pep talks anyway.

Colts @ Broncos: I was talking Thursday night about the possibility of a Broncos/Cowboys Super Bowl and how hard it would be to root against Peyton. Let's try to make that happen.

Allen

Wild Card Picks: 2 out of 4

Divisional Picks
Ravens @ Patriots: The best dressed QB wins.

Panthers @ Seahawks: If the Seahawks were not allowed to use any of their starters, this could be a good game.

Cowboys @ Packers: Rodgers' calf injury scares the crap out of me and makes this by far the hardest of these picks. I still like the Packers at home in a close one.

Colts @ Broncos: What writer could fail to love a symbolic passing of the torch like this? Peyton's weapons are far from great, he's looked shaky lately, and it's going to be cold.

Wild Card Picks: 2 out of 4

Divisional Picks
Ravens @ Patriots: Duh.

Panthers @ Seahawks: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Cowboys @ Packers: You have one job, Green Bay. YOU HAVE ONE JOB.

Colts @ Broncos: This pick is meaningless since I picked neither of these teams to advance to the Conference playoffs, so...screw it. Let's go, Colts!!
