This is it. The final week of the regular season with a whole bunch of meaningless games. There are also a bunch of games that mean a lot to a bunch of different teams. It's the week where fans of a team become fans of their rivals if it means a win by a team they hate gets them in the playoffs.
The big story lines this week include Adrian Peterson's quest for 2,106 rushing yards. Calvin Johnson of Lions will try to become the first receiver to ever hit the 2,000 yard mark. The Seahawks will try to score 50 for the fourth straight week. Pete Carroll probably feels like he's back coaching at USC the way Seattle is putting points on the board lately. Michael Vick will get his final start for Philadelphia as the Andy Reid era comes to a likely end. Good luck this week if you're investing your Christmas money in some NFL action.
