Oh geez, for as good as the early afternoon slate was for Week 15, the late afternoon games are proportionately awful. The only contest with appeal outside of solely fantasy interest is Steelers-Cowboys, otherwise known as the great convergence of the bandwagons.
With Pittsburgh and Dallas hanging at or around the margins of the playoff picture in their respective conferences, the game has some import for football next month, which might be the only consolation for the very many mentions of winter meetings past between two franchises that have a combined 11 Super Bowl titles and a half billion asshole fans.
Beyond that, the Bills are playing in Toronto, where a grateful crowd of friendly Canucks will cheer politely as Buffalo gets routed by the Seahawks.
