It's mid-December -- time for any NFL team with serious ideas about reaching the Super Bowl to show it on the field.

It's a popular theory, and it usually applies.

What any team has done until Weeks 14-16 usually matters little if it takes its foot off the gas now -- or suddenly can't find the pedal.

It's time to floor it.

Disagree? Then consider, for instance, the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants at this time a year ago.
