Looking Forward to this Weekend’s Playoff Action

Last weekend offered up some entertaining football. I am glad I stuck with the Green Bay/Arizona game. Unlike the Eagles, Patriots, and Bengals, the Packers where able to make a stunning comeback attempt. This weekend all the home teams are favored to advance.

Dallas at Minnesota (-2.5)
Dallas is hot – I like their chances over Minnesota, but if the Vikings live up to their potential they could roll all the way to the Super Bowl. I just don’t see it happening.

Arizona at New Orleans (-7)
New Orleans was the class of the NFC – I don’t like they way they slacked off at the end. I understand trying to get everyone healthy, but I don’t believe you can just turn it on at will. Arizona has the offense to go toe-to-toe with anyone. If they follow the game plans that Atlanta almost executed in their upset bids over the Saints, I think the Cardinals can pull off the upset. Of all eight teams left in the playoffs, the Saints are the ones that I want to lose. Always a Falcons fan until the bitter end!

New York at San Diego (-9)
While the Jets have the defense to stop anyone, I just get a feeling that the Chargers will do everything right to move on to the AFC Championship game.

Baltimore at Indianapolis (-7)
Speaking of good defenses, the Ravens looked damn impressive in their win over the Patriots, but the Colts are a different team. I do not see the Ravens shutting down the Colts.
