-          SEA has scored 150-pts in their last 3 games
-          STL has won 4 of their last 5 games
ANALYST INSIGHT
The difference here will be the Seahawks' stronger offensive and defensive lines – V. IYER

No one wants to play the Seahawks right now. They’re destroying everything in their paths. The Rams will be no different – M.D. SMITH

The Rams are remarkably unbeaten in the NFC West and should at least keep it within 12 against even the red-hot Seahawks – D. BILICKI
FINAL PREDICTION
SEA
SU
vs SPR
STL (+12.5)
The Seahawks have been red hot of late, handing out not just defeats but downright drubbings to any and all that have gone toe-to-toe with this ball club over the course of the last 3 weeks. STL is a division foe of SEA that prides itself on its defensive play and will not give the Seahawks a free pass for the NFC West crown this Sunday afternoon, be it the game held at CenturyLink Field or not. With the playoffs right around the corner and the potential for crucial injuries on the line, SEA will, at best, strive for the ‘W’ here and the ‘W’ alone.

-          ARI WR Fitzgerald has 0 TDs since week 9; averaging 3 REC per game during that stretch
ANALYST INSIGHT
SF dominated this weakling opponent in earlier meeting in the desert this season – R. THE HANDLE

San Francisco's angry defense will ensure it wins the NFC West – V. IYER

San Francisco will shake off Sunday night’s thrashing in Seattle to clinch the NFC West – M.D. SMITH

All the Niners have to do is win to get the division title. I’d expect them to pull their starters after going up big – D. BILICKI
FINAL PREDICTION
SF
SU
vs SPR
ARI (+16.5)
SF would love to wrap up the NFC West crown with a victory here over division rival ARI. With a 4th-string QB set to start for the Cards in this spot, a resounding 49ers victory appears all but assured this weekend. Then again, with little to no hope for a first-round playoff bye in sight and such a formidable victory required to cover this large a spread, look for SF to do no more than they have to here to seal up the win before resting any and all starters for their coming playoff run (a possible final sighting of QB Alex Smith in a 49ers uniform is likely to ensue in this ball game)

ANALYST INSIGHT
Vikes taking points in their domed stadium with a smoking hot RB Peterson gets my lean here – R. THE HANDLE

I like GB QB Aaron Rodgers to lead the Packers to a high-scoring win – M.D. SMITH

The Vikings are playing for a postseason berth.  The Packers are playing for a bye.  The Packers remain the better team, and they have every reason to demonstrate that on Sunday – M. FLORIO

The Packers are hitting stride at just the right time while the Vikings are just a one-man team (RB Peterson) – D. BILICKI
FINAL PREDICTION
GB
SU
vs SPR
GB (-3.5)
The Packers need a win here to assure themselves a first-round playoff bye. MIN needs to win this game to have a shot at qualifying for the post-season this 2012-13 campaign. With a division rival on tap, QB Ponder & Co. hold as likely an opportunity as anyone to stun the Pack in this spot with an upset victory. Then again, considering the Vikes offensive attack this season has been scaled down to RB Peterson or naught since the loss of WR Harvin in week 9 and with a Super Bowl MVP winner two seasons removed toeing the turf in this matchup (GB QB Aaron Rodgers), don’t expect anything outside the public play this weekend in the Twin Cities to come through.
