NFL FOOTBALL PICKS: WILDCARD WEEKEND

ben roethlisberger onthebuzzer.comOK, so my regular season didn’t go so well. But the post-season is where I step up. I’m a clutch players, everyone around me knows that, or at least I’m sure they’re thinking it.  But without any further delay, here are my picks for this upcoming playoff weekend. I’m feeling good about these.

Saturday’s Games:

Redskins @ Seahawks -3.5:  Seattle is one of the toughest places to play.  The Seahawks have been flying under the radar the whole season.   Their passing game is solid and can put up some major points.  I can’t see the ‘skins hanging offensively with the ‘hawks.  Take the home team.

Jaguars -2.5 @ Steelers: The only home team to be an underdog. Call me crazy, but I like the Steelers.  There’s no way that they get beat at home twice in the same season. The cold weather will have an effect on those guys from the south.  Look for Ben and Co. to surprise all…

Sunday’s Games:

Giants @ Buccaneers -3: NY is playing well.  They are a good team.  Their offensive is clicking even without Shockey.  As long as Manning doesn’t throw the game away, they have a chance to win. Bucs have a hard time putting up points. Take the Giants with the points, don’t get crazy and go for the money line.

Titans @ Chargers -9: Chargers beat the Titans in Tennessee during the regular season.  Vince’s quad is hurting and will affect his mobility.  Norv Turner has finally learned that L.T.=win.  Look for the Chargers to pound and give the Titans a big dose of L.T. Take San Diego with the points.
