Round 2...

Packers over Seahawks

Brett Favre has one more run in him, taking his permanent 5 o'clock shadow and "The most talented team he's ever been a part of" past Seattle and into the NFC Championship. Close game, but most likely the least exciting of the weekend. If by some chance the Seahawks win, I believe they will go all the way to the Super Bowl, as the Packers are my team to beat in the NFC.

Patriots over Jaguars

I'm not buying into all this hype of the Jaguars being able to take down the mighty Pats. I saw on ESPN's BottomLine that 58% of the fans are picking New England. Don't listen to all of these analysts who are doing their best Nostradamus impression, trying to forecast a team to lose that hasn't in nearly a year. It should be a good game, but I still take New England by 10+. How can you pick against them? Seasoned quarterback, playoff experience, they've been here before and with the cleft chin Brady has, how could you be afraid of David Garrard and Fred Taylor?

Colts over Chargers

Peyton and Co. are the defending champions of this league with something to prove. They have gotten no hype and quietly have one of the best defenses in the league. When these teams met in the regular season it took a San Diego Miracle (Darren Sproles punt and kickoff return, 6 Manning interceptions, 2 Vinitieri missed FGs) to take them out. Despite all of this, Indy still dominated in most categories but the scoreboard-the only one that matters. Don't bet on Peyton making too many mistakes on Sunday.

Giants over Cowboys

I said it once and I'll say it again... man I love being a turtle. No but seriously, Eli Manning is 8-1 this year away from Giants Stadium (Including the playoffs) and I will throw another bone to a determined Giants team. Eli has played well and the G-Men front four (Strahan, Robbins, Cofield and Umenyiora) will be in Tony Romo's face all game long. The only way he can be saved is if Rapunzel throws her hair down from her comfy seat in the press box

Last Week's Record: 3-1
Todd f***in' Collins screwed me otherwise I would have gone undefeated while picking 3/4 road teams to win.

AFC Championship: No surprise here, Colts @ Pats
NFC Championship: Revived G-Men @ Lambeau to face the Pack
