Admittedly, this post is going up a little late, so all of us here at TVG send along our apologies. That being said, we offer this series as our official picks for the playoffs. There are three participants: myself, Mimir’s Head, and my fourteen-year-old beagle, Mickey. Now, at this point you might be asking youself: how does an old beagle choose winners and losers in a football game? Answer: he runs the gauntlet.
There are six games, so Mickey had his choice of six game cards. We placed kibble on each the home and away cards, separating them by about a foot or two. The card he goes to first is his pick. With that said, here are our picks.
Game #1: Colts at Bills
Game #2: Rams at Seahawks
Norm: Rams. I think Aaron Donald is going to ruin Seattle’s day.
Game #3: Bucs at WFT
Mimir: WFT. The front 4 for WFT could just absolutely ruin Brady’s day.
Game #4: Ravens at Titans
Norm: Titans. Derrick Henry, it turns out, is pretty good.
Game #5: Bears at Saints
Game #6: Browns at Steelers
Norm: Browns. I’m pulling for Stefanski, even if he can’t coach the game.
Mimir: Steelers. Cleveland barely won last week against the Steelers second team and haven’t been able to practice since.

Be sure to check out The Moron’s Guide to Football. Mimir’s Head is going to be breaking down the game to make it more accessible to fans. In the first article, MH is covering personnel packages. The first one goes up tonight.
