re: NFL Thread: RAVENS SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS
My picks for next week:
In the NFC, I am going to go with The Packers to beat The Vikings. I know that sounds silly considering Peterson (Season MVP IMO) ran all over them this week, but I think things will be different in Lambeau, and if the weather becomes a factor, then the Pack will definitely have an advantage. And beating the Packers twice in a row? That is tough to do.
And I will say this. If the Skins were playing Seattle in Seattle, I'd probably pick the Seahawks. However, the Seahawks on the road against RGIII & Alfred Morris and a team on a 7 game winning streak? That is going to be tough to beat. I'll pick the Skins by virtue of home field advantage. No 12th man to worry about.
In the AFC, I am still going to pick the Texans to beat the Bengals. Yeah, they've looked pedestrian the last few games, but I chalk up the Colts game to high emotion due to the return of their coach to the sidelines. I think the Texans are going to click a little better in their first playoff game (I hope so. I'd be nice if they won one).
And due to their high momentum, I am going to pick the Colts over the Ravens. The Ravens started strong, but minus their win over the Giants, they have looked pretty ordinary for at least a month and a half (and the Giants game I believe has more to do with the Giants just sucking). Luck just seems to have everything going right at the moment and the Colts seem like a more finely tuned and in sync team.
