Pot is legal in Washington now, isn't it?

Yes, but not as legal as Kool-Aid. Which part, in particular, requires the most suspension of reality to accept?

1. San Francisco loses at NE in Week 15
2. San Francisco loses at Seattle in Week 16
3. Green Bay loses at Minnesota in Week 17
4. Giants lose at either Atlanta in Week 15 or Baltimore in Week 16*
5. Seattle beats both Buffalo (5-8 currently) in Toronto and St. Louis (6-6-1) in Seattle.

Why I think each element makes sense:
1. The Niners are 5-point underdogs at New England, who just destroyed the 11-1 Texans.
2. Seattle is undefeated at home this season, and only lost to the Niners 13-6 in San Francisco in Week 7.
3. Minnesota led the Packers at the half in Green Bay earlier this year, and will probably be fighting for their playoff lives in this game.
4. The Giants are underdogs in Atlanta this week (though by only a point), and the Ravens... well, let's just say Atlanta's a better bet on this one. * I made a mistake on the Giants scenario in the OP. If the Giants win out, they'll beat Seattle on Conference Record (9-3).
5. Seattle by 5.5 over Buffalo might be a little strong, but Seattle is clearly the better team, and it's not completely a Buffalo home game. A Ram upset in Week 17 would be epic.

See? Totally plausible. : )

-n8 (#3 gets my vote. The rest are pretty solid.)
