I have a bit of the writer's block this morning so let's just go with the picks.
Arizona (PK) over Atlanta - The Falcons could have very well been the two seed, but instead have to travel to the desert in the opening weekend. I've liked the Falcons in this matchup all week, but they have struggled on the road while the Cards will be pretty jacked for a home playoff game. I'm regrettably taking Arizona.
Indianapolis (-2) over San Diego - Stop the presses, I'm picking against the Chargers. A Winks favorite all year, I just think there's something special about Peyton this year. The 2008 Colts look an awful lot like the 2007 Giants, if you ask me.
Baltimore (-3 1/2) over Miami - I love Miami as much as the next guy, but Baltimore is just too tough of a team. One of the rookie QB's will win this weekend, I just hope it's Flacco and not Ryan.
Vikings (+3) over Eagles - Since I'm not just doing these for fun anymore and there is actual chalk on the line, I have to go against my heart sometimes. But Simmons is right on this one, this is a doozy of a game to pick. Still, I have to go with the Vikes.
Now that I mentioned it, I just realized all my picks are the same as Bill Simmons' this week. Hope you enjoyed my original content, guys!
