NFL Playoff Predictions

Just want to do a little prediction contest for the playoffs picking against the spread. I’ll keep track of everyone’s records here. I’ll get the line off of yahoo. Anyways just post your picks in the comments section or send them to me via e-mail or IM. Pass this link off to others.

The lines are as follows:

Falcons are a 1.5 point favorite over the Cardinals
Colts vs Chargers is a pick’em game
Ravens are a 3.5 point favorite over the Dolphins
Eagles are a 3 point favorite over the Vikings

My picks are Falcons -1.5, Colts, Ravens -3.5 and Vikings +3

For those of you who aren’t posting your predictions as a reply to this post but sending it to me by IM or e-mail I’ll post your name here to acknowledge your pick. If you don’t see your name let me know.

Eli comes through

So if you live anywhere near the NYC area all you hear on sports radio day in and day out is how Eli is not the right QB for the team. Two solid performances in a row for him hopefully will make things easier on him in the coming weeks. Give the man a break. Yes, he was drafted first overall and the Giants gave up a lot to get him….but seriously how many QBs in the league would you rather have over him? He hasn’t practiced with his #1 WR all season long so of course the flow of the offense won’t always be there but the coaching staff hasn’t helped him much with the play calling. This team lost its #1 RB heading into this year ( a blessing in disguise) yet it didn’t miss a beat. Eli and Coughlin have been on the hot seat all year so hopefully they now get the credit they deserve leading this team to the playoffs 3 years in a row and now advancing into the 2nd round.

Went 3 for 4 this weekend with my predictions and here are my early predictions for next week…..that I might change later in the week depending on the circumstances.

Jaguars 20 Patriots 17
Chargers 24 Colts 30
Giants 28 Cowboys 17
Seahawks 13 Packers 24
