Dallas/Carolina - Dallas wins this game with defense by stopping an ailing Stephen Davis and Jake D. chokes in the prime time spot light.

Dallas wins 21-17

Green Bay/Seattle - The Holmgren bowl is won by GB as Bret Favre continues to have all the breaks fall his way. The real story here will be the rb matchup of Green vs. Alexander.

Green Bay wins 31-14

Indianapolis/Denver - Indi gets revenge for the beating they took from the Broncos a couple weeks ago. Peyton finally gets the monkey off his back with 3 td passes.

Indi wins 24-21

Baltimore/Tennessee - Baltimore makes it 7 in a row against the Titans. McNair has a good game, but Eddie George goes nowhere. Jamal Lewis and the Baltimore D will be too much for the Titans to overcome.

Baltimore wins 20-7

Dallas/Carolina - This one will be close and ugly. Both teams don't have a QB and Dallas can't run the ball. The difference will be that Parcells has been here before.

Dallas 13 Carolina 9

Green Bay/Seattle - Lots of backstory here but the Pack prevails.

Packers 24 Seahawks 17

Indianapolis/Denver - I want to pick Denver but Indy will be looking for revenge.

Colts 24 Broncoes 20

Baltimore/Tennessee - Possibly the most interesting of the 4 games. Baltimore has discovered their offense and the defense is tough as always. The Titans have McNair who is the best QB in the game right now but no running game.

Ravens 27 Titans 15

Tennessee at Baltimore
I think the Titans will barely pull this one out.
TEN 21, BAL 17

Dallas at Carolina
Two solid D's, two so-so offenses. It'll all boil down to Cundiff vs. Kasay.
DAL 9, CAR 6

Seattle at Green Bay
I don't think this will be the debacle that it was in Week 5, but Seattle's road woes will come back to haunt them.
GB 31, SEA 20

Denver at Indianapolis
Denver stifles a last minute Manning comeback attempt. Also--I'm a homer.
DEN 28, IND 24

Tennessee at Baltimore
What do you think? Besides, Eddie George traditionally does squat against the Ravens. Baltimore 17, Tennessee 10

Dallas at Carolina
Two teams, neither of which have been firiing on all cylinders as of late: Carolina 21, Dallas 17

Seattle at Green Bay
Seattle can't win on the road. Period: Green Bay 30, Seattle 13

Denver at Indianapolis
Lightning strikes twice: Denver 34, Indianapolis 30

Four more wins....

I won't pick scores, but I'll go with:

Tennessee over Baltimore
Carolina over Dallas
Green Bay over Seattle
Denver over Indianapolis

followed by:

New England over Denver
Tennessee over Kansas City
Green Bay over Philadelphia
St. Louis over Carolina

and I'll look at injuries before I predict beyond that.

Tennessee @ Baltimore
I will take the Titans. Steve McNair always brings his "A" Game and his crutches to the playoffs. Titans 10 Ravens 7

Denver @ Indianapolis
IMHO, Peyton Manning is the MVP. This is the year he finally wins a big game. Colts 27 Broncos 17

Dallas @ Carolina
Carolina will win this one with their defense. Earlier this year their defense got railed by the Cowboys, not this time around. Panthers 21 Cowboys 3

Seattle @ Green Bay
How can you not root for Brett Favre? With my Steelers looking at a top 10 draft pick I officially adopt the Packers as my playoff team. I lost my Dad very suddenly this year too, so I know what Favre is going through. I dare say if he lead the Pack to another Super Bowl win he could be the BEST QUARTERBACK EVER. Yeah thats right, I said it.
Packers 24 Seahawks 14

EDIT: Titans are @ B-More not other way around

If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

Panthers 13-Cowboys 9: Both teams have lousy offenses. Dallas completely sucks on grass (except against Washington).

Baltimore 10-Titans 6: Titans peaked a month and a half ago. Baltimore can get away with playing without a QB at home.

Packers 35-Seahawks 10: Seahawks suck on road.

Colts 35-Broncos 31: After a weekend of bad or boring football, this game will make up for it. Can't see Denver holding the ball 45 minutes again, and Jake Plummer will throw at least 1 4th quarter touchdown pass to the Colts.

If only Paul Jones had brought in General Skandar Akbar as a technical military advisor, Paul Jones' Army could have thwarted the McMahon infidels and prevented the collapse of wrestling civilization.

Titans in a shutout just so I can tell Grimis the Ravens have no heart.

Broncos in a close Indy heartbreaker
Packers in a good close game
and the Panthers in the ugliest game of the weekend.

Dallas beats Carolina just so we can somehow see the Bill Parcells ego take on tangible form in front of the tv cameras.

Seattle beats Green Bay as the roll the Pack have been on the last few weeks comes crashing back to earth.

I believe it was the Sports Guy who said he was practically salivating last year at the thought of betting against both Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy in the same playoff game. I don't see any reason that should change. Peyton goes another year with the albatross as Denver runs them over.

Steve McNair uses his just-legalized electric wheelchair to fly about the field and keep the Ravens off-balance all game, leading the Titans to victory despite about a million billion yards rushing by Jamal Lewis.

Denver over Indy
Baltimore over Tennessee
Green Bay to whip Seattle
Carolina to beat Dallas....the Cowboys' balloon has burst, and frankly they're lucky to make the playoffs. Carolina just keeps rolling along, winning games under the radar. The Parcells factor might help, but John Fox has shown he's a pretty decent coach himself.

Rob asks Dave and Ric if they want to go backstage to play Hungry Hungry Hippos and Flair and Batista immediately bail. Flair wants to be Green. Man, EVERYBODY wants to be green. Except the girl in the commercials. She wanted to be pink. That either means that the ad agency was sexist or that she was communist. Of course Hungry Hungry Hippos is a rather capitalist game isnít it? No self respecting communist would play Hungry Hungry Hippos. Except Stalin. He LOVED Hungry Hungry Hippos.

Conversely, Denver hasn't won a playoff game since Elway left. Something's gotta give.

Denver over Indy because this game can not end in a tie. I would have said Denver big until they go out with their JV team and get the crap beat out of them and I still have no faith in Manning in any sort of big game.

Baltimore over Tennessee in the best game of the weekend.

Dallas over Carolina. My head keeps saying Carolina here but I just can't shake thing feeling that Parcells will pull something out to win this game.

Green Bay over Seattle. Because the world will not be complete unless we have one more week of everyone on TV telling us how Favre is a god and when he smiles little elves dance around him. People seem to forget that GB needed to beat a JV team and the terrible Raiders PLUS a Red Sox-like loss from Mn to be playing this week. This team is just not very good. But all that being said they will beat Seattle.

I figured between the fact he was doing the handoff as his best possible action shot, and the completely blank stare as his pose shot on the card, I could find no better shot of Mr. Johnson if I tried.
