Wild Card Weekend
It’s Wild Card weekend in the NFL Saturday and Sunday and with the winter weather rolling in, it gives me yet another reason to stay in and just be lazy!
Saturday will see the only team with a losing record to make the playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks take on last years Super Bowl Champions, the New Orleans Saints at 4:30 on WNYT13. Prediction: Saints are missing 2 key running backs in Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory but still have Drew Brees, Saints 31 Seahawks 14.
The other saturday game features the guy who does the best commercials ever Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts vs. Mark Sanchez and the New York J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS at 8p on WNYT13. Prediction: Colts are beat up but have been rolling lately and except for a dominating performance against the Bills, the Jets look vulnerable. Colts: 35 Jets 27.
On Sunday we start out with the surprising Kansas City Chiefs taking on the big bad defense of the Baltimore Ravens at 1p on CBS6. Prediction: Chiefs did me wrong to many times when i picked against them in the past and Baltimore is a bit banged up. Chiefs 24 Ravens 21. You can watch all the action of this game with Jeff Levack at Vapor as well!
Finally what will surely be the game of the weekend Sean McMaster’s Philadelphia Eagles take on Marshall Dillon’s Green Bay Packers at 4:30 on Fox23. Prediction: Michael Vick is banged up and i think the Green Bay Defense will be all over that. Aaron Rodgers wins his first playoff game, Packers 35 Eagles 28.
Let me know what you think, what are your predictions for the weekend?
