New Orleans Saints AT Seattle Seahawks
Greg’s Pick: New Orleans Saints. You know part of me wants to pick the Seahawks, they’re at home (12th man), nothing is expected of them, and they’ll be playing on high emotion. But I just cannot do it. Last time these two teams met, the Saints destroyed them – since then, the Saints have gotten healthier and better, the Seahawks are just about the same.
New York Jets AT Indianapolis Colts
Greg’s Pick: Indianapolis Colts. Can we just end this Jets to the Superbowl talk already? The Colts had to win 4 straight games just to get here, while the Jets are limping in, literally. I expect this to be a close game, but the Jets offense will once again doom their season.
Sunday January 9, 1:00pm EST, CBS:
Baltimore Ravens AT Kansas City Chiefs
Greg’s Pick: Baltimore Ravens. As much as I really want the Chiefs to win – the Ravens do this every year, go on the road and win the first game, they thrive off of this environment. I think the game will be tight and will come down to the final drive though, in which the Ravens defense will hold up.
4:30pm EST, FOX:
Green Bay Packers AT Philadelphia Eagles
Greg’s Pick: Green Bay Packers. This is the toughest game I had to pick this weekend. Both teams are very good and I think the winner of this game will go to the Superbowl. I am picking the Packers strictly because I think they have a better defense and allow far fewer points than the Eagles do.
