Today's Preview
It's the final Sunday of the NFL regular season, and as usual we are football-heavy on the Streak. There are key playoff matchups, including the Cowboys-Eagles game and the Chargers-Broncos battle. Both games are for your choosing.

Before we reach the 1 PM games, we've got a morning English Premier League offering. The Bolton Wanderers host Wigan Athletic at 9 AM, with Wigan getting the draw as well. Bolton looks to rebound from their 3-0 loss to EPL leader Liverpool on Boxing Day.

The early NFL schedule on the Streak includes four straight up games and one player proposition. Tennessee visits Indianapolis in a game where many people expect the Colts to rest key starters for the playoffs. Also, Carolina visits New Orleans in a game where a win would clinch a division title for the Panthers.

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles
This is the showcase football game from the later set - Dallas needs a win to assure themselves a spot in the playoffs. Philadelphia must win to simply have a chance. The Eagles were on a strong late-season run until they were derailed by Washington last week, and will come out looking for redemption. The Cowboys need to defeat both the Eagles and their own internal turmoil.

In the final regular season NFL game of the season, San Diego hosts Denver with the AFC West title going to the winner. San Diego still believes they were robbed in their controversial Week 2 loss at Denver. If the weather is fair, look for this game to showcase a lot of offense.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers had their best day in two weeks - of course, that didn't take much. Still, they were above 55%, led by the West Virginia (football) Mountaineers' thrilling come-from-behind win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. Streakers would have had a much better day if they'd had as much faith in the West Virginia (basketball) Mountaineers, who destroyed Ohio State despite being backed by only 5% of Streakers.
