Flex Me Up!

By the time Santa crammed his butt down our stovepipe, we were in 7th place in the NFC standings. Only the first six matter, though, of course. However, we're down to just three things we need to have happen in order to jump up to #6 and make the playoffs:
  1. We beat the Bears on Sunday*
  2. The Giants lose to the Redskins in Washington on Saturday night
  3. The Rams lose to the Viqueens in Minnesota on Sunday
So when the sun rises on Sunday, we'll know if we're down to just needing two things to happen or if we're out of it altogether.

*The NFL has potentially made it a bit more interesting; The Packers/Bears game has been moved and will now be played as the final Sunday night game of the season. In fact, as there's no Monday night game, it will be the final game of the 2006 season as a whole. Perhaps Roger Goodell has some presentimental feelings about the way this will all shake out... or perhaps we're just being allowed a final chance to lay an egg in the blinding national spotlight. Who knows?

Either way, I know I'll be tuning in to find out!
