Predictions from a Nutball (NFL Playoffs)

This weeks NFL Games

Saturday's games

Ravens at Titans..

Titans have the best record in the league. and Ravens only got in on the last weekend of the season aided by the collapse of the New York Paper Airplanes, The Titans have one of the best coaches in the NFL in the name of Jeff Fisher. They have more experience at QB with Kerry Collins, but they are going to be missing Kevin Mawae and that could be a huge loss against a great defense like the Titans. Still everything says the Titans should win at Home, But somehow the rookie QB Joe Flacco
will be the first rookie QB to ever win his first 2 Playoff games

Ravens 20---Titans--17

Cards at Panthers

Cards cannot and will not even compete traveling east in this game. Big Rout

Panthers 38----Cards--10

Sunday's games

Starting with the late game

Chargers at Steelers

Chargers are a Red Hot team, They have a great story, however the injuries to LaDainian Tomlinson and also with Antonio Gates hobbling (But he will Go) will be too much along with the Chargers being forced to play in a Hostile Climate.
Ben Roethlisberger appears to be healthy, reports say he is sharp in practice, I can see no way that the Chargers can come into Pittsburgh and win

Steelers--34-----Chargers---20

Now for the big grudge match!
Eagles at Giants

Giants are the defending Super Bowl Champion, The Eagles needed all sorts of help to get in the playoffs after being given up for dead earlier in the season,
The Eagles still lack a big time running back and Brian Westbrook is hurting, also the Eagles do not have a go to receiver either, But the Defense is stellar.
The Giants have been here before and knows what it takes, They have a lethal running game (If Brandon Jacobs is Healthy) But he just might not be, Also without Plaxico Burress, Eli Manning does not have his guy to stretch out the Defense, I see the Eagles stacking the box and making it a long day for Eli Manning and the Giants, also the eagles in recent years have had the upper hand at Giants Stadium, So my pick is..

Eagles--27-----Giants--23

Sorry Dan and Pete.

I have the same picks, but have the G-Men winning. I'd love to be wrong on that one though.

MY scores and spreads on Saturdays Games were right on, and

By the way I was misquoted on who I said was going to win the Panthers/Card game.

Hilarious. Flight of the Birds continues.

I'm proud of the Cards.

Would not surprise me if the Cards win Sunday, They have alot of big play makers. But I really do not see anyone beating the Steelers in the end.

Hey, 3/4 that week is pretty impressive. Nobody saw the Cardinals competing with the Panthers. Who do you like in the Super Bowl? I'll be looking forward to your posts as well.
