NFL Conference Championship Picks

Once again, 1 of 4 on my picks. Its been a great playoffs for me. Good news is I can only get 2 wrong this week!

Jaguars (12-6) at Patriots (14-3): Patriots
I dont know how the Jaguars scored 45 points on the Steelers but theyre not going to do it again on the Patriots. That said, Tom Coughlin (Jags exec VP) sure does know how to take an underdog team and ruin the Patriots season.

Vikings (14-3) at Eagles (14-3): Vikings
The Eagles have had a good run but it ends here. The Vikings are on fire and I dont think anyone can put them out. The have the opportunity to play in the Super Bowl at their brand new stadium. The only chance the Eagles have is if they find a way to break the new found confidence that the Vikings have in their 3rd string quarterback.

NFL Power Rankings Conference Championships

The Jaguars come through with a huge upset to join the top 3 teams in the Conference Championships next week. Despite the win they were unable to move up any spots because the top of the pack is so far ahead. In fact, the only change in the standings is the Cowboys inching ahead of the Lions.

NFL Divisional Week Playoff Pics

Ugh, I sure did pick poorly last week. The only game I got correct was the Saints over the Panthers. Lets see if I can do a little better this time.

Falcons (11-6) at Eagles (13-3): Falcons
Man, if the Eagles still had Wentz this would be an easy pick. As it is, I just dont think the Eagles have enough to stop the Falcons.

Titans (10-7) at Patriots (13-3): Patriots
The Titans may have spoiled the Chiefs post season but theres no way they do the same thing to Tom Bradys Patriots.

Jaguars (11-6) at Steelers (13-3): Steelers
The Jaguars have made it an interesting season. This is where it ends. And for you Jacksonville fans out there: go here.

Saints (12-5) at Vikings (13-3): Saints
I know the Vikings are a much better team than the Panthers but the Saints looked good last week. This one is going to be another close game and will probably determine the NFC Champion.

With a huge win over the Panthers, the Saints have left the peloton and joined the leaders. The Titans upset on the Chiefs makes them the biggest jump, all the way to 14th!

NFL Wild Card Week Playoff Picks

In my late season picks I got all of the division winners in the AFC correct. Look at the Bills sneaking in. As for the NFC, the Seahawks wet the bed and let the rams take the West. Not only that, but they didnt even get a wildcard spot. The Falcons limped in as the 2nd wild card spot. Here are my picks for this weekend.

Titans (9-7) at Chiefs (10-6): Chiefs
The Titans arent supposed to be in the playoffs. The AFC is so bad this year that an 8-8 team just missed a wildcard spot. Not to mention Andy Reed is awesome in the playoffs.

Falcons (10-6) at Rams (11-5): Rams
I just dont think that the Falcons have it in them this year. The Rams have won some big games, including crushing the Seahawks to lock in the division.

Bills (9-7) at Jaguars (10-6): Jaguars
This one has me stumped. First, the Jaguars won the AFC South. How did that happen? Second, the Bills snuck past the Ravens and got a wildcard spot. I picked the Bills because I just cant get behind the Jaguars.

Panthers (11-5) at Saints (11-5): Saints
The Saints have already defeated the Panthers twice this season. Theres no reason to believe they wont do it again. While Newton is a force to be reckoned with I believe that Breeze is a playoff game winner.

NFL Power Rankings Wild Card Week

With the regular season at its end, the Vikings have claimed the number one spot. The Patriots, Steelers and Eagles are not far behind. Its no wonder that those teams are each getting a bye this year in the playoffs. Perhaps the thing Im most excited about is the Browns. The 0-16 Browns with -139 points.

NFL Power Rankings Week 17

The top 7 teams all won this week and are making a mark. I wouldnt want to face a single one of them in the playoffs this January. The Browns are now one game away from a perfect season. A trip to Pittsburgh next week makes 0-16 a very strong possibility. My Lions once again proved that mediocre coaching results in mediocre playing.

NFL Power Rankings Week 16

The Eagles take the #1 spot in a highly contested top 6. The Browns continue to run away at the bottom with their perfect season. What really interests me though is the 8-6 Titans are 19th and the 6-8 Redskins are 17th.
