NFL Divisional Playoffs

This is always a great football weekend. Four games over two days. And the four games are all good matchups. I'll be glad to split them, as I did last weekend.

I am still rooting against the Colts, which means I'll be for the Ravens. It feels strange to root for an east coast team against a team 150 miles from my house, but I still feel betrayed by the Colts. I was rooting for them to go 16-0, and they didn't give it their best shot. I guess I should just get over it. Especially because I think they'll win.

The early game today features the two most explosive offenses, New Orleans and Arizona, so it should be a track meet, probably the funnest game to watch this weekend. I almost typed St. Louis instead of Arizona. I'm stuck back in the '80s.

Tomorrow we get the game the experts are anticipating the most- Minnesota v. Dallas. I think the winner of this game will get to the Super Bowl. Funny how Dallas went from ridicule to favorite in a matter of 3 weeks.

The last game has the most swagger- Jets v. Chargers. Both teams think a lot of themselves. I'll again root for the underdog but pick the favorite.

San Diego.


  1. So then you are also predicting that Minnesota will beat New Orleans? It's all so unbelievable for Minnesotans and Vikings Fans, so why not! I wasn't a Favre fan in August, but I am now. Can a QB win the Super Bowl for a team? If so, we look pretty good.

  2. TK!

    I am predicting it. But you do realize if Minnesota makes it, they could end up as the only team in history to lose 5 Super Bowls?

    Never been a Favre fan and never will be. But I think he picked the right team.
