Game-by-game predictions made prior to the NFL Wildcard Weekend based on the results of those games
Before the Ravens' game against Indy, Roger Goodell will greet Ray Lewis and congratulate him on his impending retirement. They will share a long embrace while having a short conversation. Luckily, our lip readers will be able to catch every word.

Ray: Um, ok.
Roger: All the other players are being really mean to me.

Ray: Wait a min-
Roger: Thanks Ray, byee!
