I only missed the Jets game last week (unfortunately), but that's been partially rectified by putting a flaming bag of crap on Nate Kaeding's doorstop.

Now, on to the conference championship games.

Last week's record: 3-1
Season record: 178-86 (67.4%)

Colts over Jets — New York's dominant defense is carrying them through the playoffs, but if anyone can beat them, it's Peyton Manning. He might not light up the scoreboard, but I expect him to put up more points than Mark Sanchez and the Jets can match.

Saints over Vikings — Okay, so maybe I'm biased. I hate Brett Favre so much, and I can't bear the thought of him potentially winning another Super Bowl. Drew Brees and the Saints' offense can certainly match, if not exceed, that of the Vikings, but it'll come down to whether their defense can stop Minnesota's offense enough.
