    Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles

    If the Eagles still had carson Wentz at QB, this might be a totally different game. Problem is, the Eagles have been less than good without their starter. The Falcons have been just getting better and better and it looks like the Falcons will be playing again next week.

    Wnner: Atlanta Falcons

    Tennessee Titan vs New England Patriots

    The Titans won't get the gift of their QB throwing a TD pass to himself this weekend. Without that that single freak play, the Titans would all be watching Kansas City play the Patriots. Nothing makes the patriots more dangerous than someone or something trying to distract them from the job at hand. The Titans will take one for all of the Brady, belichick, Kraft bullshit the past two weeks.

    Winner: New England Patriots

    Jacksonville Jaguars vs Pittsburgh Steelers

    The Steelers have been squeaking by teams over the last month. They have the guns, but bullets haven't been firing correctly. The Jags have also been squeaking by a lot of games but they have a legitimate defense that is the best in the NFL. If Big Ben doesn't get the Steelers off to a quick start and let's the Jags defense dictate the tone of the game, the Jags will pull this out from under the Steelers.

    Winner: Pittsburgh Steelers

    New Orleans Saints vs Minnesota Vikings

    Vikings playing at home gives them a distinct advantage. The big question is if the Vikes can slow down the Saints and Drew Brees. Brees has an armory and his weapons are deadly. If the Vikes can score early and press the Saints just a bit, this will be the best game of the four.

    Winner: New Orleans Saints

    Tonight's game in New England will feature temperatures dropping from the low 20s into the upper teens. 20+ MPH winds will make it feel like 4 below by the end of the game.

    Last week, the Dark Lord had practice in single-digit weather. "We may have a playoff game in this weather," was his rationale. Looks like he was right.

    The scheduling sucks. The Pats should be the early game and the Saints-Falcons should be the prime time game since it'll be a better one.

    But, that Saints-Falcons NFC title game is going to be epic.

    Yeah well they set the Saturday and Sunday games ahead of time. Can't take a Sunday matchup and move it to Saturday.

    Patriots are the better seed of course they will be playing later. Though I do like when they play earlier games... They seem to play better those games

    Since 2001 the Pats are 15-5 in late playoff games. Outscoring opponents on average 28-20.

    In earlier games, they are 10-4. Outscoring opponents on average 25-21.

    They've played 7 late games in the divisional round and are 6-1 with the only loss coming in 2005 @ Denver. Their last 3 late divisional games were against Houston, Indianapolis, and Denver when they averaged 41 points scored and 16 points allowed.

    I just meant they seem to not make me "scared" and take control of the game sooner... But I love those stats@!

    Isn't this where Tomlin cries that it's unfair those assholes get an extra day?
