mike-champCongratulations, Mike Procopio, on winning the VoodooBrown Office Pool for the second year in a row (comfortably). Mike posted a 162-94 record, which is better than pretty much every pundit from ESPN/Fox/CBS that put their picks on record. He’s dialed in, folks — and I’m honored to have him on our team.

WILDCARD ROUND:

Kansas City Chiefs (-3) @ Houston Texans

Over/Under: 40.5
Temperature: 62°
Wind: 10-20mph
 
 
 
Kansas City charged into the postseason with a 10-game win streak — hottest team in football. Houston has been lingering all year — they’re survivors. I see this game coming down to the wire, with KC emerging. Santos hits a last-second FG for the 2-point win.

Voodoo’s picks:
Against the spread: Houston +3
Straight up: Kansas City
Over/Under: Under 40.5
 
Mike Procopio’s picks:
Against the spread: Kansas City -3
Straight up: Kansas City
Over/Under: Under 40.5
 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals

Over/Under: 45.5
Temperature: 46° (60% chance of showers)
Wind: 7-12mph
 
 
 
Both teams are dinged up in key positions, but I can’t see Pittsburgh losing this game with McCarron at QB. If Andy Dalton was playing, I’d be more likely go with the Bengals. But he’s not, so I have to give the edge to Pitt.

Voodoo’s picks:
Against the spread: Pitt -3
Straight up: Pittsburgh
Over/Under: Over 45.5
 
Mike Procopio’s picks:
Against the spread: Cincy +3
Straight up: Pittsburgh
Over/Under: Over 45.5
 

Seattle Seahawks (-5.5) @ Minnesota Vikings
game-banners-seamin
 
 
Over/Under: 39.5
Temperature: 3° (-10° wind chill)
Wind: 5-10mph
 
 
 
The Vikings are on the right path, but they got a bad draw for the first round. They’re not beating the Seahawks in round 1, even with the ungodly temperatures. I can’t imagine anything less than a double-digit Seahawks win.

Voodoo’s picks:
Against the spread: Seattle -6
Straight up: Seattle
Over/Under: Under 39.5
 
Mike Procopio’s picks:
Against the spread: Seattle -6
Straight up: Seattle
Over/Under: Under 39.5
 

Green Bay Packers @ Washington Redskins (-1)

Over/Under: 45
Temperature: 46°
Wind: 12-22mph
 
 
 
A few key factors: 1) the Redskins have been very good at home this year (they’re 6-2). 2) The Packers are not a good team. It’s a tough pill to swallow for everyone that thinks Aaron Rodgers can turn water into wine, but this team hasn’t clicked since their mid-season skid (Week 7 on). The absence of Jordy Nelson has proven to be too much to overcome for their offense. 3) The Redskins’ offense is rolling, and that’s not about to stop. There will be a lot of points, but the Skins should win comfortably.

Voodoo’s picks:
Against the spread: Washington -1
Straight up: Washington
Over/Under: Over 45
 
Mike Procopio’s picks:
Against the spread: Green Bay +1
Straight up: Green Bay
Over/Under: Under 45
 

WEEK 17 RESULTS:
Darren DeGaetano: 11-5
Mike Angelina: 10-6
Mr. K: 10-6
Voodoo Brown: 8-8
Mike Procopio: 8-8
CJ Sullivan: 8-8
Meredith Short: 8-8

Voodoo Brown
Voodoo Brown started playing fantasy football way back in 1994 — when you had to manually add up scores with the Monday edition of USA Today (yes, that’s how it was done). Since that time, he has amassed 16 championships and 7 runner-ups, with most of his success coming after 2003 (avg. participation of 2-3 leagues per year). These accomplishments are evidence that Voodoo steadily adjusts to the ebbs & flows of the ever-changing fantasy landscape. It’s a different game now than it was in 1994 — hell, even 2004. Rarely finishing as a doormat, Voodoo’s teams are always in the mix.
