Today begins the NFL playoffs, truly a magical time of the year. So, to get in the spirit I've decided to share my selections for this weekend's games. FYI, my preseason Super Bowl pick was Denver vs. Green Bay. It's looking like a pretty good possibility at this point. But, one thing the NFL playoffs has taught us over the years is that nothing is as simple as it appears.
And that's why they play the games...
Game 1: Cincinnati @ Houston, Saturday, 4:30 p.m. (NBC)
By no means a blowout, but I think Houston wins this matchup convincingly. I'll go with a final of 20-10.
Game 2: Minnesota @ Green Bay, Saturday, 8:00 p.m. (NBC)
Pick: Green Bay
This game might come down to who has the ball last. In a shootout, I will take the Packers and Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau against almost anybody. Packers survive, 37-33.
Game 3: Indianapolis @ Baltimore, Sunday, 1:00 p.m. (CBS)
Hey, it's no fun picking all chalk, so I have to throw one upset in the mix. I wouldn't consider this an epic upset if it happens. Colts advance, 27-20.
Game 4: Seattle @ Washington, Sunday, 4:30 p.m. (FOX)
Hail to the Redskins, 24-17.
Enjoy the games everyone!
