Don't know who came up with this gem because Super_Kazuya didn't attach a name to the poster which was rather considerate of him seeing how ridiculous a comment it is...wow! No teams season is riding on a week 9 game unless they're 0-8 and if you're 0-8 consider yourself done anyway. In week 17 the writing is on the wall for every team. Some teams have already been eliminated from playoff contention while other teams already have a playoff spot wrapped up. A few teams need to win and have to rely on someone else maybe several teams to have a chance to make the playoffs. In an "elimination game" both teams fate will be determined by the outcome of THAT game win and they're in lose and they go home.
