Hear hear! If we can’t make it for two months, shame on us. Either way, I’ve re-titled our tag line as “Your #12 source” . . . so we have a better chance of living up to our namesake in case we slack off like before.
Without further ado, I announce my picks for this week’s divisional round playoffs. These reflect the playoff odds from footballoutsiders.com, which have New Orleans and San Diego as heavy favorites, and Dallas/Minneapolis, and Baltimore/Indy as pick-em’s. I go with Indy due to 1) home field; 2) Flacco’s injury; and, 3) overblown concerns about the Colts taking off three weeks in a row. I pick against Dallas, because it’s just too difficult to root for them so long as Jerry Jones is the face of the franchise. Anyway, here you go:
Sunday Games My Picks
Arizona at New Orleans (-7) New Orleans
Baltimore at Indianapolis (-6.5) Washington
Dallas at Minneapolis (-3) Minneapolis
NY Jets at San Diego (-7) San Diego
