    Saturday
    Colts @ Chiefs 4:35
    Cowboys @ Rams 8:15

    Sunday
    Chargers @ NE 1:05
    Eagles @ Saints 4:40



    Gimme the Chargers + the other home teams. I am so utterly sick to death of the Cowboys. Chargers/Chiefs and Saints/Rams would be the best pair of conference title games in recent memory.

    I'm calling it now. Chiefs and Patriots both lose.

    Don't get me wrong. Not questioning you or anything but why the hate for Cowboys? I am rooting for them in this play offs. I hope they win it all. Not only to make Giants fans suffer but because they are a storied franchise and would be nice to see them win after so many years.

    Honestly I don't hate them, just sick of seeing them. Too many national games, too many primetime games, I end up seeing them 10+ times a year, and I don't fucking live in Dallas.

    Jason Garrett is the white Marvin Lewis and I'm not sure if watching a mediocrity like win a title would be sad or hilarious. Maybe that is something to root for :D

    Rooting for Chargers against Chiefs in the AFC Championship game is easy, and I even won't mind if it's Colts and Luck instead of Chiefs and Mahomes.

    Always like the Saints, but my Philly family connection means that I have to root for the Eagles until they lose. Don't like Jerry Jones at all, but still rooting for the Cowboys, to piss off Giants fans and Stephen A. Smith. (Already thrilled that Michael Wilbon was crushed by today's Bears game.)

    The best scenario is a Cowboys/Eagles vs Chargers Super Bowl.

    A lot of Giants fans still hate on Rivers because they don't want Rivers to be proclaimed better than Eli.

    I am going with the Chiefs, Rams, Chargers, Saints.

    KC will have their hands full with the Colts but will win a close one.
    Dallas will have at least 40,000 in the house rooting for them.
    Hoping the Bolts can do for 4 quarters what they did for 3 against the Ravens yesterday.
    Foles magic runs out. I think NO will end up being your NFC representative in the SB

    Very good point - it's only the two SB runs that make this argument only wrong, as opposed to completely idiotic, so a corresponding one for Rivers would pretty much destroy it.

    Road dogs continue to advance with the exception of the Saints.

    If Andy doesn't get to another Super Bowl this season he should retire. It ain't happening for him.

    Chiefs

    Will the refs bail out Prescott again on two failed 3rd down attempts with the game on the line? Not likely.

    Rams

    I was stunned by how ballsless the Chargers coached & played yesterday. They could've sent the Patriots and the league a message yesterday by obliterating the Ravens instead they settled for just getting by. It nearly came back to cost them. I wanna believe but I'm no longer feeling them like I thought I would.

    Patriots

    The Saints should win but the Eagles are the defending champs, they believe in Foles the way the Pats believe in Brady. The Saints blew them out this season I doubt it happens again. This game could go either way but I gotta go with

    Eagles

    Rivers isn't going into NE and winning. NE will hold all day as usual, get no penalties, draw nonexistent PI calls, get every break and win. Entire Patriots game scripts are quite easy to predict.

    Picked the three road teams last week and went for 4/4....

    Though about it a lot, sticking with my preseason Super Bowl pick; New Orleans....

    Colts
    Cowboys
    Chargers
    Saints

    Both wild card teams in the AFC advance (which I believe would be the first time ever both wildcard teams make the championship game).

    Its not even that, Philip Rivers has been one of the best QBs in the NFL since he came in. Right now people don't talk about him, if he ever won a Super Bowl, his whole career will be looked at differently. He probably would be right up there with Brees, Roethlisberger, Manning and Brady as the top 5 over this era.

    I think the best game will be Colts Chiefs, very tough to predict but if I had to I guess I go with the home team pulling it out 34-33 or something like that.

    Can't see Dallas beating the Rams.

    Makes me nauseous to say it but have to think Pats pull out the win at home in chilly Foxboro vs the Bolts.

    Would love to see Philly keep winning but I think their run ends in the dome against the Saints.

    So I guess I'm picking all four home teams. Best chance for a road team win is Indy in my opinion.
