COWBOYS VS. EAGLES
First of all, I do not expect a repeat of last week. If you look at the 2 teams on paper, they are close in almost every statistical category, so another blow out is highly unlikely.
The Eagles have the clear advantage in the coaching department. I’m expecting to see a creative game plan on offense & a relentless blitz scheme on defense from the Eagles coaching staff. The Eagles also have far more experience in the playoffs, and that doesn’t hurt!
I think the Cowboys have the advantage in 2 other VERY important categories DEFENSE & MOMENTUM. The Dallas Defense has been great down the stretch, starting with holding the Saints offense to 17 points, then posting back to back shut outs against the Redskins & Eagles. Stellar defense, mistake free football from Tony Romo & great running has given the Cowboys all the momentum in the world!
MY PICK – Cowboys 24 – Eagles 20
The game will be close, but I think this is the year the Cowboys get the “Playoff Monkey” off their back.
JETS VS. BENGALS
D-E-F-E-N-S-E – Enough said. The running game for the Jets has been awesome this year. It kept them in games when Mark Sanchez was playing like a rookie QB.
Bengals have played well at home all season home. Putting up wins against the Steelers & Ravens.
MY PICK – BENGALS 20 – Jets 17
This will be a close one. Playing at home will be an advantage for Bengals. Jets have beaten a “good” team on the road in a while (INDY doesn’t count, they sat everyone) Look for a couple of big plays from Carson Palmer & Ocho Cinco. That will be just enough to get the Bengals the win.
PATRIOTS vs. RAVENS
Lots of questions… Evil Bill always seems to figure out a way to win despite injuries. He’s a great coach, but can he do it again? Tom Brady is banged up. 3 cracked ribs & a bad finger- Plus no Wes Welker is gonna mean a lot of double teams for Randy Moss. Can someone else contribute?
Ravens have a great 1-2 punch at running back. Ray Rice & Willis McGahee have played well. Ravens will have to pound the ball and rely on Joe Flacco to “manage” the game if they want to win this one. My only concern for the Ravens is this; If New England jumps out to an early lead, do the Ravens have enough offense to play catch up. Low scoring game favors the Ravens .
MY PICK – Pats 28 – Ravens 17
I’ll admit I’ve flipped on this game a couple times. I’m going to have man up a make a pick- I’m taking the Patriots at home for this reason; they’ve won their last 4 home games by an average of 14 points.
GREEN BAY vs. ARIZONA
The Packers O-Line has done a great job protecting Aaron Rodgers & giving Ryan Grants holes to run through. Packers have won 7out of 8 down the stretch.
The Cardinals come in a little banged up on both sides of the ball. Boldin is questionable for the offense & Rodgers Cromartie for the defense. This could hurt the Cards. I do like the running duo of Wells & Hightower, They have been solid all season. The Cardinals play great at home & getting out to a quick lead will be key for the Cardinals if they want to win.
MY PICK – Packers 27- Cardinals 21
The Packers come in with all the momentum, if they can hold the Cardinals offense even a little in check, they win!
