Well, in keeping with tradition, my NFL picks were woefully awful last week. And, in keeping with tradition, Sunny — who doesn’t really follow the NFL outside of the Titans and occasionally the Colts — completely mopped the floor with her picks. Here are last week’s results:
At least Joshua’s keeping me some company down here in the cellar.
As for this week’s picks, here they are:
NFC Divisional Round: Arizona Cardinals at New Orleans Saints
This one has the potential to repeat last week’s high scoring affair between the Cards and Packers. The Saints tailed off a bit down the stretch, but they were still the class of the NFC all season. It’s hard to count out the Cardinals when Kurt Warner is on; last week he had more touchdown passes than incompletions. But I have to go with N’awlins here. Naturally, Sunny likes the Cardinals, so they’ll probably win.
Jason’s pick: Saints
Sunny’s pick: Cardinals
Joshua’s pick: Saints
NFC Divisional Round: Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings
Is anyone playing better football than Dallas right now? The offense has always been fairly high octane, but the defense is simply carrying this club. I think this will be a great game. Favre and Peterson indoors this time of year will be awfully tough, but you’d have to be crazy to pick against the ‘Boys with the way they’re playing right now.
Jason’s pick: Cowboys
Sunny’s pick: Cowboys
Joshua’s pick: Cowboys
AFC Divisional Round: Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts
Peyton Manning. Enough said. We’re all chalk with this pick. Peyton is really the only thing us Tennessee fans have to be proud about these days. Go Colts.
Jason’s pick: Colts
Sunny’s pick: Colts
Joshua’s pick: Colts
AFC Divisional Round: New York Jets at San Diego Chargers
This is where Sunny has just decided to rub it in. She’s taking the Jets — led by a rookie head coach and a rookie QB — on the road against a team that’s won 11 straight games. At this point, who am I to say she’s wrong? But I gotta go Super Chargers here. Maybe I’ll be able to gain a game on her with this pick. But if she’s right, go ahead and put her name on the trophy.
Jason’s pick: Chargers
Sunny’s pick: Jets
Joshua’s pick: Chargers
