With about an hour and a half until the first game begins, I am going to have to be brief.
In the first game of the weekend, Arizona at New Orleans, I am going with the Saints to win 31-21. The week off should help the Saints prepare for this game. Even though my beloved Packers lost, I believe they showed the weaknesses of the Cards, which Brees and company should be able to expose.
The late game on Saturday is Baltimore at Indianapolis. I have the Ravens winning 28-24. I believe the one weakness of the Colts will be exposed: their run defense. I also feel that the defense of the Ravens will fly aroud like they did last weekend in New England. The big win in Foxborough should give the Ravens an extra boost of confidence which should have the Colts a little worried.
The early game on Sunday is Dallas at Minnesota. An interesting stat to keep in mind is Favre is 0-3 lifetime against the Cowboys in the post-season. Anyways, all season long I have been talking about how overrated the Vikings are, and I feel this weekend the Cowboys will show the world how overrated the Vikings are. I have the red hot Cowboys beating the Vikings 31-17.
The conclusion of this weekend is the New York Jets at San Diego. San Diego was the second best team in the league down the stretch run of the season, and Phillip Rivers was the best quarterback. I have the Chargers breaking through the top ranked defense of the Jets and stopping their running game. My pick is the Chargers win 24-10.
