Picks of the week: Divisional round

Super wild card weekend was definitely wild for head varsity football coach Marcus Teal, assistant varsity football coach Robert Cutts, athletic director William Hemberger, principal Tam Larnerd, and the grizzly community.

The community got one up on our experts last week as they led the pack with a 5-1 record. Cutts and Hemberger were just behind with 4-2 records, and Teal and Larnerd rounded out the bottom with 3-3 records.

Last week brought many close games, with the New Orleans Saints vs Chicago Bears game being the only one without a close score in its duration. Despite there being four more games this weekend, many fans have been debating on which game was the most entertaining with mixed results coming from each discussion.

“Man there were some fun games last weekend, but my favorite was by far the Browns game,” Cutts said. “You can’t help but root for those guys.”

Teal: “I like the Pack!  It’s gonna be cold and the Packers are pretty good at home, in the cold!”  Packers 31, Rams 24
