Seriously guys, I'm more scared of the Giants in the post-season than the Saints.

I understand where you are coming from but the Giants have been such a bi-polar team. The wild-card game should be telling.

I'd be very surprised if the Loins go into NO and beat the Saints. Something tells my they will lose their composure, just like their tool of a coach, Gym Shorts.

Lions gave up almost 500 to Matt Flyn... can't imagine what Brees will do to them, but would be nice if they won. Who the hell knows

I was saying in another thread that although they lost by 14 @NO last month, they may have won if not for dumb penalties and missed fgs. They dominated time of possession by 10 minutes and had slightly more yards. If I had any confidence they would limit their penalties, I'd be tempted to pick them here.

Also think the Falcons are being overlooked. The Giants play better on the road than at home and play better as underdogs. In their last matchup two years ago in NY, the Falcons lost 34-31 without Michael Turner. Before that, the road team had won the last 9 games in this series. I do think the Giants are extremely dangerous, that's why I picked them to beat GB a month ago when everyone had given up on them. I won't be at all surprised to see them in the Super Bowl, but it would be just like them to be tripped up by the Falcons as home favorites. Not quite ready to predict it tho.

Pitt@Den is such a mismatch that it almost feels like there are three playoff games this week. It might be fairly close because of Pitt's style but doesn't seem like Denver has any chance to win. And I say that mainly because Tebow has lost his spark. He looks shaken. A few weeks ago this game was interesting.

Houston outplayed Cinci in Cinci and without Andre Johnson. Cinci is one of those classic 6-2/3-5 teams that stumbles in and exits early. Dalton did not have a good second half. Maybe he's hit the rookie wall. Very confident Houston takes this, even with Yates' shoulder injury

I forgot the Lions also didn't have Suh for that game @NO.

HOU>CIN
NO>DET
ATL>NYG

NE>PIT
BAL>HOU
GB>ATL
SF>NO

NE>BAL

not gonna pick the NFC champ yet but I predict the winner wins the SB. I think any of the top 4 NFC seeds would win it. I'm hoping the Giants beat Atlanta, because they'd have a far better chance against GB.

And if Houston had lost, I'd say they blew it by having 2 more turnovers, including one at the goal line. Houston outgained them 412-285, 1.6 more ypr, won TOP, had 9 more first downs.
