How about the match-ups this weekend? I don’t think I’ll move away from my T.V. until Sunday night. Here are some predictions:
Green Bay over Seattle: No one knows Brett Favre better than Seahawks coach, Mike Holmgren. However, Favre enters tomorrow’s game with plenty of playoff experience under his belt. This will be Favre’s 21st playoff game, but Green Bay has not been back to the NFC Championship game since Holmgren was coaching there.
New England over Jacksonville: The Jags don’t have a shot at ruining the Pats chances of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy into the dry Arizona air. You know that the Patriots will be focused on the only game that is guaranteed to them. Otherwise, that 16-0 season is a wash.
Indianapolis over San Diego: The returning champs are hungry for more. Don’t expect to see Peyton Manning and the Colts perform the way they did in November’s 23-21 loss to the Chargers. San Diego didn’t have to worry about Marvin Harrison or Dallas Clark the last time these two teams played. The next time Manning throws six interceptions, he will probably retire and watch his little bro from the sidelines.
New York Giants over Dallas: The Giants are more comfortable playing on the road than they are at home as evident by their 8-1 away record (including playoff games). However, the Giants won’t have it easy with Tony Romo wanting to avenge last year’s playoff performance, and with Terrell Owens most likely playing. Confidence is once again on the Giants side after winning 8 in a row and their first playoff game against Tampa Bay.
