Dolphins (7-8) at Patriots (13-2) - Game is meaningless and an argument could be made we should be rooting for the Dolphins cause if the Raiders win a Dolphins win will help with the pick. But even as much as I care about the picks. I can't root against the Patriots for some stinking draft spot.
Bills (4-11) at Jets (10-5), Meaningless game, both for playoff implications and are picks. But I root against the stinking toe suckers out of habit. I am not gonna stop now.
Raiders (7-8) at Chiefs (10-5), Our first round draft pick.
Giants (9-6) at Redskins (6-9) Helps our first round pick.
Titans (6-9) at Colts (9-6) - Helps our first round pick. Plus the rooting interest of the "I fear Peyton" whimps.
Vikings (6-9) at Lions (5-10) helps our first round pick. But hurts our 3rd round pick. If Oakland is winning big start rooting for the Lions.
Jaguars (8-7) at Texans (5-10), Could help our 1st round pick. Plus the rooting interest of the "I fear Peyton" nimbies.
Bears (11-4) at Packers (9-6), don't care.
Bengals (4-11) at Ravens (11-4), game won't affect any picks, but it is nice to see a playoff team go into the playoff cold.
Steelers (11-4) at Browns (5-10), see above. plus might help our third round pick.
Buccaneers (9-6) at Saints (11-4), don't care
Cardinals (5-10) at 49ers (5-10), don't care
Chargers (8-7) at Broncos (4-11), don't care
Cowboys (5-10) at Eagles (10-5), might help with 3rd round pick.
Panthers (2-13) at Falcons (12-3), pick is locked after rooting against the team all season long, I feel I owe to them to root for them for once.
Rams (7-8) at Seahawks (6-9), There have been at least one 8-8 team to make the playoffs. I rooting for the first losing to team to do it.
Citing the Bible as proof of God is like citing comic books to prove the existence of Superman.

I copied this from the "Raiders pick scenarios" thread, so assuming it is correct I can figure out which 6-9 teams could pass the Raiders in the final standings used for draft order. Looks like it would be all four of the 6-9 teams - the Redskins, Vikings, Titans and Seahawks. I guess whichever NFCW team loses Sunday night will pick before Oakland. The only other 7-win team is the Dolphins but I'm not going to root for the Pats to lose, even if it is a meaningless game.
Also, I'll go ahead and root for the Packers to win because their fans that were here this season were pretty cool, and that would keep the Giants out of the playoffs.

Redskins beat Giants
Vikings beat Lions
Titans beat Colts
Dolphins result irrelevant in this scenario.
Raiders finish 7-9 and pick 12th due to "winning" tiebreaker vs. Redskins, Dolphins, Vikings and Titans.
Want Bucs to win so that the locals have someone in the playoffs, not that they deserve it whining about blackouts with 30,000 unsold seats in a home game with the playoffs on the line. Bucs won.
Love to see Petey Carroll SEA lose to a rookie QB StL
Want SD to win so that they draft later; they're a threat should they ever change management
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck." RAH
