NFL Playoffs - Divisional Weekend

This week is hard to pick. Too much emotion involved in these games. Plus injuries with key players, don't know if they'll play. But here we go.

New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys - I don't like Eli Manning, so I always root against him. But even thinking rationally, I think the Cowboys will have Owens back and he will be effective. Gotta go with the Cowboys. Dallas wins.

Seattle Seahawks @ Green Bay Packers - The Seahawks actually looked pretty decent for most of the game last week. But they're on the road, and the Packers will be ready for them. Green Bay wins.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ New England Patriots - Oh, I hate Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. I want Jacksonville to win so bad, but as good as they are, and as good as they are playing right now, I really am not convinced they'll be able to win. I think they will play hard, I think they'll put points on the board, but unfortunately I don't think they'll keep up. New England wins.

San Diego Chargers @ Indianapolis Colts - I am not picking this game. Or at least I should not be. As a fan, I have too much emotion involved, and as much as I try to stay impartial in this sort of stuff, trying to be impartial, it's hard. I'm not a professional, I don't get paid to think about this stuff, I don't get paid to study games. I just enjoy the games and root for my team. And since I'm a fan, and I can see how the Chargers match up well against the Colts, I have to follow what my (possibly slightly biased) brain says. San Diego wins.
