APC Pick 'Em: Week 17. The Finale.

This is the end. Beautiful friend(s). My only friend(s). The end.

Another year, another pick 'em contest coming to a close. This year, it appears that RockChalkPackers will most likely walk away with the crown. Or possibly Ryan W.K. or Dodgerado... who knows? Crazier things have happened. Either way, I'd like to thank each and every one of you that has participated this year! It was fun. Let's do it again next year. I wish you guys a Merry Christmas! (Happy Holidays to those of you celebrating Hanukkah and Kwanzaa!) GO PACK GO!!!

***********OPTIONAL TIEBREAKERS*************

During the season, I have broken ties with the 'Week __' category. For the end of the contest, I will continue to go that route. However, if there remains a tie between 2 contestants, there will be 3 tiebreakers that I will be adding at the end of this post. These are completely optional. So, if you just want to get your 16 picks in and get the contest overwith, that's cool too. If you choose this second path, the tiebreaker will go like this: Total Points, Week 17 Points, alphabetical order.

Week 16's Top Performer - OBrienSchofieldismyHero notched 13 W's in Week 16! Congrats, man. You've had a rough go of it for the most part, so this is well deserved.

Honorable Mention - osc630 and snapbrimfedora with 12 points apiece. aaronetc and Ryan W. Kasten with 11 points, and finally, with 10 points each: BirdDogUni, Bobcat2010, DeepFriedCheese, RockChalkPackers, and Wiedmann.

Nice picks, brosephs! - Only three of you chose BUF over MIA: bnbfishin, OBrienSchofieldismyHero, and osc630. Samesies for the Indy victory over the favored Kansas City Chiefs: OBrienSchofieldismyHero, SuperGramps, and uofmike. And yet again(!), the magic number was 3 for the Arizona upset in the Emerald City: AdamA, Darrell L, and osc630. Finally, the two brave souls that picked against our Packers (booooo :P): aaronetc and snapbrimfedora.

Weekly request/reminder: Please rec this post at least 2 times to raise it to the Recommended FanPost section. If you were one of the users that recommended Week 16's post, I kindly ask that you go back and un-rec it. Thank you guys, in advance!

Houston (2-13) at Tennessee (6-9): TEN

Jacksonville (4-11) at Indianapolis (10-5): IND

NY Jets (7-8) at Miami (8-7): MIA (I do not trust Miami at all here, but eff it... I am going deep!)

Detroit (7-8) at Minnesota (4-10-1): DET (LOLions)

Carolina (11-4) at Atlanta (4-11): CAR (You should have stayed retired, Tony... )

Tampa Bay (4-11) at New Orleans (10-5): NO

Buffalo (6-9) at New England (11-4): NE

Denver (12-3) at Oakland (4-11): DEN (The Denver Mannings still have that HFA to play for. And there are still 50-yard bombs to be thrown once they are up by 20. Gotta get to that 60-TD mark... )

Kansas City (11-4) at San Diego (7-8): KC (The Chiefs are locked into the #5 seed, but do they want their division rivals in the playoffs? I'm guessing no... )

Philadelphia (9-6) at Dallas (8-7): PHI (No Romo? GLWT, Dallas.)
