NFL Playoffs – Divisional Round
The Divisional Round is upon us. Four teams fell short of their championship dreams last weekend. I managed to correctly predict the result of three out of the four Wild Card games last week. You can probably guess which game I got wrong. Who could have anticipated that the Kansas City Chiefs would blow a comfortable lead at halftime to ultimately lose the game? Surely the so-called “expert analysts” over at ESPN, the network that carried that game, would have seen it coming:
Wow. Looks like ESPN’s Randy Moss had some kind of insight the other panelists did not. If you’ll recall, Moss spent the last eight games of the 2010 season in Tennessee with the Titans. Perhaps there were some of those old-team-homer-vibes pushing him towards this pick? Who knows. In any event, Tennessee’s win was the biggest surprise from last weekend. The game was one of the best in a Wild Card Weekend that was filled with some fairly competitive games. Last year’s Wild Card slate was a bit of a snoozer, with final scores of 30-12, 27-14, 38-13, and 26-6. Hopefully what was an entertaining Wild Card Weekend will carry over into this year’s heavily-anticipated Divisional Round. Going four-for-four in picks would also be great.
With that here are my (hopefully) winning picks for this weekend’s Divisional Round action:
