I started off at 0-2 last Saturday for the Wild Card picks, but was able to rebound with a 2-0 record on Sunday. Hopefully I can do a bit better this week, but none of these games are gimmes.

Last week's record: 2-2
2010 season record: 170-90 (65.4%)

Steelers over Ravens — This is obviously a touch match up between two bitter division rivals, but I have to give the slight edge to the home team with the NFL's best scoring defense.

Falcons over Packers — Trying not to let my dislike for the Falcons cloud my judgment, Atlanta is a tough team to play at home and has to be the favorite here.

Bears over Seahawks — The Seahawks might have had their day in the sun last week, but now they are on the road and again facing a superior talent. I don't see them pulling it off twice in a row.

Patriots over Jets — The Jets have done a ton of smack talking in the week leading up to this game and I think they are a bit overconfident. I like Bill Belichick to get his team ready to stomp them.
