O.K. So the Patriots are out of the picture so now you can predict the games without hoping one or the other wins now.... What are your picks for this weekend games? I'll go first... Dallas Cowboys 29 Minnesota Vikings 27 I think Romo and Ware on both sides of the ball are on fire and this is where Favre usually lays an egg when the game gets big and he starts throwing it all over the place and making mistakes - The Cowboys are on a nice winning streak while the Vikings have been mediocre since early december - This is reminicent as to why the hottest teams in December win in January - Should still be a close game until Dallas scores a FG with 1 minute left to win it. San Diego Chargers 28 New York Jets 13 Its been an up and down cinderella season for Sanchez who has had to rely on his defense and rushing attack to win games for them,I just don't think that Sanchez can keep up the scoring with a very solid season from Rivers who may lock up with Vincent Jackson on a few long bombs and maybe this is the game Revis has a hiccup,expect Tomlinson to grind out a nice game as well..should not be close - SD will be in the SB. New Orleans Saints 40 Arizona Cardinals 23 If the Cardinals thought it was tough to keep up with the offensive explosion of the Packers, imagine of how tough a 100% healthy Saints team will be with a well rested Brees and Company,Arizona should have saved some of those points for N.O.,They will need them,I love the classy Kurt Warner who may be the greatest playoff QB ever, but this game should be over by end of the 3rd quarter. UPSET SPECIAL: Baltimore 23 Indianapolis 20 Don't know why but I really don't think Indy is ready for this game and against a very confident defense,I think taking those weeks off as a team that really has won with everything on Manning's shoulders almost all season may not be enough,We all saw a very firey and up tempo Ravens team who's leader Ray Lewis wants another ring badly..this is another nail biter that goes to the end with Stover MISSING the game tying FG with 30 seconds left to lose a very exciting game.
