So the question is.....has DB won the championship already or does my game against him actually matter?

It matters a great deal. I beat DB this week, so at least one team is within a game of him going into this final week.

Boy, did DB fall into an awesome defense, the Steelers, because I took the Colts.

Well, when I made this post, I did not know Indy scored.  So, I guess, in the end, it is six of one, half a dozen of the other.  Good luck to all, and to all a good night.  I am going to go wallow in the tears of yet another failed season.

Yeah, you said it.  If not for the Steelers' D, I would be done.  Other than my defense, my team is not playing well.  The injuries to Gurley and McCoy really hurt.

At this point, I think Pak has the lead on me but it is somewhat close and it depends on how our QBs end up.  My game with Warner will be ever closer but I think I have the advantage at this point.  
 
Assuming that Pak beats Travis and I beat Warner (which is a big IF), the championship is 50/50 between Pak and I and will likely come down to how Newton and Palmer do in the Divisional Round.
 
Steg, if Pak and I end up with the same record and are 2-2 in head to head, the next tie-breaker is points differential, right?

That is correct.
 
Rob has the Cardinals' D in the Divisional Round.  That is going to be significant, as well.
 
On a side note, I was surprised you did not go to an old staple of yours, Steven Jackson. His yardage was whatever, but that touchdown would have helped you.

The game between DB and I is close. I need Marshawn and Desean Jackson to have good days. Ultimately, it could come down to my kicker not getting a single field goal Only 3 stupid extra points.

You also have Antonio Brown to go (unfortunately).

Yes, I could have played Steven Jackson and I should have kept my other old friend, Larry Fitzgerald.  I also could have played David Cobb with better success.
 
As for Antonio Brown, he played against me week 17 (unfortunately).  Not sure why you say unfortunately, Mr. Commissioner.  Are you rooting against me?  I guess I would root against me too.  I hope I win but I would not be upset if Pak finally one it.

Don't be so narcissistic!  "Unfortunately,"... for Steve.
 
But, alas, you are correct!  I was reading his lineup "upside down".

Well, it seems that the Basement Dwellers have a pretty good shot at actually winning against the #1 seed. If DB gets a Carson Palmer rushing TD, the game would be really close. So I need either Palmer not to run a TD in OR if he does get a rushing TD, ,I need Marshawn Lynch to play this week and get a rushing TD. If Lynch does not play, then I would get Alfred Blues 99 yards - which does not do me any good in points. Going to be close!!!!

Definitely close.  Will come down to Palmer TDs (need at least 2); Lynch & Palmer yards per rush; and Catanzaro FGs.

Well, here is what I am fairly certain Warner needs to beat DB, that is to say, what Pak needs to take the crown...
 
M. Lynch to have a good enough yards per rush to flip the category, which currently stands at 3.55 to 4.00.
 
OR
 
Lynch to score a touchdown receiving.
 
OR
 
Lynch to get 20 yards receiving AND 101 yards rushing.
 
OR
 
Lynch not to play or record any stats AND Seattle to lose so that Warner gets A. Blue's Wild Card week stats.
 
...
 
What a finish...!!!

Wow this is really close. I am really lucky to be in this situation.  That Carson Palmer TD at the end of regulation was pure luck.  If they do not get that bounce, the Cardinals are done and so am I.
 
Based on my calculations, if Lynch does not play, then Warner (really Pak) wins 18-17.  If Lynch plays, and he is expected to, it will be very tight.  
 
In addition to what Steg says, Lynch can win it for Pak if he throws at TD or kicks a bunch of field goals.  
 
A Lynch 2 point conversion would also hurt me depending on his yards her carry.  Lynch's receptions and receiving yards per reception may impact things as well (as Blue's one catch gave Steve 2 points for the receptions' category but he lost him the bonus for yards for reception).
 
Steg,  I don't see how 20 receiving yards makes a difference.  Also, I cannot access the spreadsheet for some reason.
 
Pak, I hope that you are aware of all this and that if Lynch is active, you (like me) will be agonizing over every play. Good luck!

Yards receiving bonus.  Coming in, Warner was sitting at 280, no?

Yeah I forgot to calculate Hightower's receiving yards.  
 
I have me beating Warner 17-10.  Boy did Lynch come close to scoring on a reception in the end.  Assuming Pak beats Travis, I win Lucky Number 7.

It was nice to see so many of the Gurley Men in the Pro Bowl last night.  I wish I had played Russell Wilson in the PB instead of the playoffs.
 
Good luck to you Bronco fans next week!  I usually root for the team that has not won a championship but will not do so in this case.  I would like to see Peyton go out on top.

It was just a randomly smiley......
 
And yes, a deal does make sense.   Who the hell knows what is going to happen down there - The signing of Ivory is definitely a weird signing IMO.  
 
Lots of strange happenings-  does Denver really think Sanchez is good enough to start the season?   That is nuts.
