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.
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
