Patriots, Steelers, Bears and Falcons, though obviously I'm hoping for a Green Bay upset. The Packers and Ravens get no favours by winning on Sunday and then getting a short turn-around week against opponents who have already had more rest.
Can't pick against the Jets now, and what's more, if our path to the SuperBowl means beating Manning and Brady in back to back weeks, all the more awesome. And yes, I will be heartbroken if the Jets don't get it done, because I'm a Jets fan.
The Ravens D will be looking to absolutely murder Big Ben. Ed Reed's playing with an enormous chip on his shoulder, and with a bye I don't know Troy Polumalu will be in the swing of things or not. You know the running game will NOT work on either side, and Flacco has better targets IMO.
Marshawn Lynch probably will not do anything remotely close to what he did against the Saints defense in Chicago. The real question is whether Jay Cutler will show up to play.
Falcons are already on the bus. I love the commercial, I think if Chunky soup and Madden can have curses, Play 60 can be a boon. That said this game will be very tight with a highly talented Packers defense trying to rattle a highly talented Falcons offense.

Sorry, but you *have* to include Paul Brown on the Honorable Mention list - Went from OSU to the Browns, led them to every AAFC championship ever, then won the NFL Championship in 1950 when they joined the league. Fantastic, innovative coach.
