    I think the same can be said about Dallas... and they were without Zek.. If Dallas keeps this up, should be an interesting playoff season for them.

    Ravens play great at home, that might be a toss up. I can't see the Cowboys beating the Seahawks, their fluke playoff run will end quick.

    I got upsets this wild card weekend.

    Colts over Texans: Colts just seem to be the better team and better balanced. They don't have the stars like the Texans do but they look like a team ready for business. (1 for 4)

    Seahawks over Cowboys: I can't trust the Cowboys. Whenever I think they finally got to a level we all expect them to, either Dak's inconsistent play or Garrett's coaching catches up and ruins it. I know they are playing well the last 4 weeks but I think Seattle and Russell Wilson put an end to the Cowboys' season. (1 for 2)

    Eagles over Bears: Nick. Foles. That is all. (Emotional pick rather than logic.)(2 for 4)

    Ravens over Chargers: Defense and run game. It's a good recipe to have in the playoffs. (1 for 3)

    I have an interesting debate:

    Lets say hypothetically the Eagles go on a miracle run with Foles again and they win the SB and he gets MVP again (Yes I know its a super duper long shot but work with me here) Does he get consideration for the hall of fame? I mean he has to be considered the greatest backup QB in nfl history at that point no?

    Well at that point I'd say he's not a back-up QB having won two Superbowls.

    I'd say he isn't one now. He has come in twice for the Eagles now and done great. I think some team is going to make a play for him this offseason.

    It would be an achievement but coming in off the bench and leading a team to one Super Bowl and hypothetically a second one is not enough to get into Canton. There are too many aspects and pieces to a HoF career and while playoffs is one aspect, he does not have the others (regular season success/stats, stats on all-time list, Pro Bowls, All-Pro teams).

    There go the seahawks... Russel wilson was averaging over 8 yards per throw and the runs were averaging 2.8 yards. They keep running it. Also they need a change up on special teams. Tired of seeing punts being returned 20+ yards so many times.
    Predictions for tomorrow :
    Chargers
    Bears(although I would love to see nick foles do good and win the game)

    Yesterday went as expected for me.

    I think the Bears and Ravens win today.

    I hope the Chargers will but I don't see it happening.

    Losing their kicker didn't help things for the Seahawks.

    I would just hate to be a Chargers fan, Jebus.

    Wild Card round: 2 for 4.

    Divisional Round:

    Colts over Chiefs: Yes, the colts probably have the most complete team that can plays very well on defense. All of the Chiefs losses were to teams that had a good offense and defense. I think Colts do enough here to stop Mahomes and walk away with the upset.

    Rams over Cowboys: Rams are my team so I have to stick with them. Do enough to stop Zeke and let Aaron Donald do the rest.

    Patriots over Chargers: Hard to bet on Brady regardless of age. There's no one better in the playoffs than Brady and Belichick.

    Saints over Eagles: In Foles I trust...but they're going up against Drew Brees in New Orleans. I think the magic stops here.
