Divisional Round playoffs - Picks & Predictions

Posted on: January 14, 2010 12:34 pm
OK, I was 1-3 last week, with the Ravens upset over the Patriots my only correct pick.  Yikes.  Undecided   Anywho, lets see if this week's guessing game goes better than the last.  Feel free to chime in: 

Cardinals @ Saints -- What Kurt Warner and the WR's were able to do against a pretty good Packers defense last week was unprecedented.  If the Packers couldn't stop them, I don't see how the Saints can.  The Cowboys and Buccaneers proved Drew Brees can be beat.  The Cardinals will prove it too. 


SAINTS             28

Ravens @ Colts -- The Colts offense usually struggles against this team, but the defense always manages to play a tad bit better than the Ravens defense.  Expect more of the same here with maybe a late TD or FG deciding the outcome.  Peyton Manning does just enough to get the win. 


RAVENS     17
COLTS         19

Cowboys @ Vikings -- I underestimated the Cowboys last week.  I won't make that mistake this week.  The Cowboys are playing their best football right now.  The Vikings are not.  If the Vikings are smart, they'll put the game in Adrian Peterson's hands.  But, they won't.  Brett Favre will cry about wanting to run the offense and boss the coaches around, and it will cost them.  Expect the #2 seed to go down as well. 



Jets @ Chargers -- The Jets won't push the Chargers around the way they did the Bengals.  The Bengals just wore down toward the end of the season.  However, the Chargers have won nine straight under the arm of Philip Rivers and an improving defense.  Expect Rivers to be prepared for the blitz and take advantage of one-on-one match-ups down the field.  Chargers big at home.

Divisional Round playoffs - Picks & Predictions

Even though I only went 2-2 in my picks last week I do feel pretty good about picking the Cardinals over the Packers. I'm going with them again this week but I don't have as much confidence in the pick this time.

It seems like the Cowboys bandwagon is getting pretty full which is understandable after how well they've played lately but I'm going with the Vikings as I think Favre will make a couple more plays than Romo will.

Good stuff as always Charlie....
