By any measure, this past Divisional Round was one heck of a good weekend of playoff football. Every single game was extremely competitive and filled with late heroics and great plays and just the right amount of weirdness.

Even with all of the ups and downs, Stella and I managed identical 3-1 records. We were both validated in both of our Saturday picks. New England battled their way to a victory against the Chiefs, ending Kansas City's 11-game winning streak in the process. In the later game, we got to watch the wildly entertaining end to the Green Bay/Arizona match-up. Despite the best efforts of Aaron Rodgers and company, the Cardinals won it in overtime thanks to a huge game from Larry Fitzgerald.

Meanwhile, we split the games on Sunday. Stella's belief that Seattle could upset Carolina was mistaken, though not by nearly as much as it looked when the Panthers were up 31-0. Carolina made me sweat more than I anticipated, but they ultimately got me the win. My seemingly poor pick of the Steelers came closer to paying off than I ever would have guessed considering their injury issues. Still, Stella knew that Denver would come through on their home field and the Broncos wound up holding serve and getting the W.

Kibbles and Picks 2015/2016 Divisional Round

You know, I really thought that once we made into the playoffs, the fact that I had at least some knowledge about the participating teams would make a difference. And yet, here we are.

Stella came out on top this Wild Card weekend, going 3-1. Her sole blemish was admittedly a big one she was on the wrong end of the Chiefs blowout win over the Texans. However, she correctly predicted the continuation of the Bengals postseason woes against the Steelers. And as for the Seattle/Minnesota tilt, well I felt pretty good until Blair Walsh. Laces out, Jeff!

Kibbles and Picks 2015 Wild Card Round

So the regular season has come to a close. For those who have been following the epic man/beast battle for primacy of prognostication that is Kibbles and Picks on our website, you know that it has been a fairly long season for the man half (that would be me) of the equation.

My dog Stella has once again proven to be my better at picking the winners of NFL games for the second time in three years, in fact. She is adorably cutthroat, feeling no shame at metaphorically biting the hand that feeds her.
