It’s almost 2 a.m. and I can’t sleep.
Less than a week removed from my beloved Baltimore Ravens upsetting the Pittsburgh Steelers, 30-17, they’ve got another tall task ahead of them, the top-seeded New England Patriots. Many of the pundits are picking the Pats to take care of business and move on to face either the Colts or Broncos in the AFC Championship game. But just in case the Ravens pull off a second stunner in a row, there have been countless articles of how Flacco has out-dueled Brady and this is the one match-up that the Pats did not want. One thing’s for sure, both will be ready to play and this is shaping up to be a classic.
Now on to my predictions:
Ravens at Patriots: My pick, Ravens.
Panthers at Seahawks: My pick, Seahawks.
Cowboys at Packers: My pick (blech!), Cowboys.
Colts at Broncos: My pick, Colts.
I was very tempted to pick the Panthers to complete the road team sweep, but the Seahawks are just too good at home.
