The NFL Playoffs begin tomorrow. For the eighth straight year, there will be no New York Jets in the postseason, but this should be an entertaining slate of games.
On today’s podcast I offer picks for the first round of the Playoffs. Just once I want to go 11-0 through an entire postseason making predictions. The closest I have ever come was 10-1. Last year the dream was over before it started. In the first game of Wild Card Weekend, I picked the Chiefs to beat the Titans. Tennessee won in an upset, ending my quest for perfection early. I picked against the Eagles in all three of their games to cap off a brutal postseason. Hopefully I will do better this year.
For this weekend I am picking Indianapolis over Houston, Dallas over Seattle, Los Angeles over Baltimore, and Chicago over Philadelphia. You can listen to the show for an explanation.
