Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of NFL football. And my team — the Chicago Bears.
My Bears did not make the playoffs. No, they blew it by losing to the Houstan Texans on week 17 — the last weekend of the NFL season. Instead, the Vikings won the NFC North and the Eagles magically stole the final wildcard spot by embarassing the Dallas Cowboys 44-6.
However, even with the Bears out of the playoffs I am still excited about the postseason. Unlike other popular sports which hold tournement-style elimination series, in the NFL it is lose-and-you’re-out. To win the Superbowl you have to have a PERFECT postseason record. So the question now is, who will do it?
In the AFC you have the:
Colts – They started off slow but have been on fire since late October.
Chargers – They’re in the playoffs without a winning record (8-8)!
Ravens – Inconsistent and lack luster.
Dolphins – Had only ONE win last year — this year in the playoffs!
Titans – Their best season ever. They want to win this for Tennessee.
Steelers – Looking strong and Ben is ok.
In the NFC you have the:
Vikings – It is just hard to take this team too seriously.
Giants – Last year they won the big game. They are favored to repeat the feat.
Eagles – Needed help to get in – and they got it big time.
Panthers – They have been winning all year. Solid all-around team.
Cardinals – The Arizona Cardinals? In the playoffs? The CARDINALS?
Falcons – This team was expected to be bad. They are in fact quite good!
This weeks games are:
the Dolphins VS. the Ravens – I PICK THE DOLPHINS BY 2 POINTS
the Colts VS. the Chargers – I SAY IT’S THE COLTS BY 10
the Eagles VS. the Vikings – I LIKE THE EAGLES BY 3
the Cardinals VS. the Falcons – FALCONS BY 12
So, what are your picks?
