Wow. I'm 8-0 in the playoffs so far. I even, on a whim, picked the Colts to upset the Broncos and it worked out. I need to correctly pick three more games to go a perfect 11-0 in the playoffs.
Here's where it all falls apart:
Packers 23, Seahawks 17 -- Everybody seems to think Green Bay has zero chance to win this game, and there are some legit reasons for that: Aaron Rodgers is hurt, the game is in Seattle, and the Seahawks thumped Green Bay pretty good when they met back on Opening Night. For some reason I feel good about the Packers' chances, though. It would add to Rodgers' legacy if he were to pull off the upset on a bad leg (and, to be honest, to me he didn't look like he was in serious discomfort during Green Bay's win last week over Dallas). And what the hell, I bucked the trend in the Colts-Broncos game and it worked. Why not?
Patriots 23, Colts 21 -- Everybody seems to think Indianapolis has zero chance to win this game, and for my sake I hope everybody is right.
LAST WEEK -- 4-0
SEASON TO DATE -- 183-81 (175-81 regular season; 8-0 playoffs)
