NFL playoff predictions: Week two

Last week’s wild card games: 2-2.

I must admit that this past week I based my picks on the teams I would like to see advance. I was pulling for the Seahawks and the Steelers, and they both won. 

On the flip side, I knew the odds were against both the Raiders and the Giants, but as I just stated, I was hoping that they, too, would advance to the divisional round.

Finally time for the big game

Are you ready for some football? Waiting two weeks for many of us seems like eternity, and it would be worse if the Patriots or Giants were involved. But the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 7, has plenty of intrigue and all the parts needed for what could be a memorable game. Unfortunately, memorable could mean a Carolina blowout or maybe a glorious swan song for Bronco quarterback Peyton Manning.

Stay tuned for Super Bowl picks

Last week, 0-2. For the playoffs, 6-4.

made two very poor picks last week, but even though I picked against them, I’m glad that Denver advanced to the Super Bowl rather than the Patriots. As for the outcome of the second game, Carolina’s dismantling of the Arizona Cardinals didn’t really surprise me. It was more a case of wishful thinking on my part picking the Cards to win that game.

It’s time for the league championships

Last week, 3-1; for the playoffs, 6-2.

 

Now that I have gotten past picking with my heart instead of my brain, we move on to the league championships. Before we get to that, however, let me take a moment to recap last week’s games.

If you read my weekly picks, you know by now that Seattle and Pittsburgh are my favorite teams.

Just three weeks left in regular season

Last week, 11-5; for the season, 123-85. Pick of the Week, 1-0; for the season, 9-5.

 

As long as I reach double-digits in wins I’m not going to complain. In addition, I hit my Pick of the Week with the Packers win over the Cowboys, so all and all it was a decent week.

NFL season is winding down

Last week, 12-4; for the season, 112-80. Pick of the Week, 1-0; for the season, 8-5.

Finally, a real good week! If it weren’t for a couple of tough losses it could have been a great week. I also hit my Pick of the Week when the Broncos won on the road against the underachieving Chargers.
