Some think of this coming weekend as maybe the best of the NFL season...the four games of the NFL divisional playoffs, the Super Bowl quarterfinals if you will.
NFC - Seattle at Green Bay, 1:30 pm (PST)
My upset pick of the weekend. The Seahawks pull it out at Lambeau.
AFC - Jacksonville at New England 5PM
For any team to have a shot at beating the Pats, they're going to probably have to score 40 points. It's been a nice run for the Jags, but it comes to an end with the cold hard reality of a winter night and 17-0 in Foxboro.
Sunday - San Diego at Indianapolis 10 AM (PST)
The Chargers defense will keep the game close. But especially if they have to play without clutch tight end Antonio Gates, Phillip Rivers will struggle even more than last week. And especially with some key weapons back, don't expect Peyton to play as poorly again as he did in November in San Diego. The Colts are the pick here.
NFC - NY Giants at Dallas 1:30 PM
T.O.'s health is a concern for the Cowboys, but I expect he'll play and maybe even have a big game. Could be close but I like the Cowboys - and Tony Romo continues to live the dream - Cancun, Jessica Simpson and the NFC title game.
AFC title game prediction...what else? Colts at Patriots
NFC ........Seattle at Dallas
