The Wildcard rematch bowl let the playoffs begin and my picks
Well it has all come down to a weekend of rematches in the NFL. This is a good time to be a sports fan and there will be some great games this weekend. I am going to give you my picks for the weekend and why. There are only 4 games and I will go at least 3-1 if not 4-0.
It takes a lot of wisdom and a keen knowledge of sports psychology as well to pick these games right each and every week. The past two weeks I have been on vacation and so I didn't do my picks but for the season my picks were about 75% right.
Let's take a look at the first game the Jets and the Bengals. The Jets made this team look like a bunch of high schoolers the way they dismantled the Bengals. This week will be totally different the Bengals will be able to run and throw the ball. The Jets are going to have to ask Sanchez to make some big plays for them and he will end up with at least two picks in this game. The Bengals will win 21-10
What do you know here's another game where the team that lost last week was shut out. Philly did what they could early and then decided to shut things down. You will see a lot more of Michael Vick than you saw in the regular season. McNabb will be sharp and Jackson will have at least two big scores. Dallas will not perform up to par under the pressure and Romo will have 3 turnovers. The Eagles will win 31-14
This is the only game this weekend that is not a rematch from last week. The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and niether are the Ravens. What I feel the difference will be in this game is Baltimores ability to move the ball against the Patriots defense. The Ravens will get pressure on Brady and Joe Flacco and Derrick Mason will have big days. This is the upset of the weekend. The Ravens will win 20-17 giving Brady his first home playoff loss.
Rematch number 3. A lot of people are on the Packers band wagon and they have played very well in the second half of the season. Watch this game closely because it will look nothing like last week. Kurt Warner will be Kurt Warner and the Cardinals will win this game 34-20. Arizona's defense believe it or not will be the difference and will have 5 sacks on Rodgers.
Ok there you have it. I am putting myself out there and my credibilty is on the line. Either I will look like the genius I am or a fool. Until the Divisional round God Bless!
