NFC Wildcard Sunday; lets turn it around

They couldn’t execute, they dropped passes, and committed three turnovers, all of which will cause any team to lose. And the Chargers held strong even without LT, which I thought would eventually lead to their defeat. Back-up running back Darren Sproles had 328 all-purpose yards and helped his team to victory in overtime. Let me try to shake it off and pick my Sunday winners…

Baltimore @ Miami (1:00pm) – After watching Atlanta and rookie quarterback Matt Ryan, trends would imply that Ravens’ rookie Joe Flacco doesn’t get the win. Miami has done very well this season because they protect the football and base their offense off efficiency. Baltimore has one of the best defenses in the NFL and Ed Reed, alone, could collect some takeaways from the Dolphins. I have been fortunate enough to watch a lot of Ravens’ games and I think this team could do some things in the playoffs. I’ll take the Ravens to win the game based on the defense they bring on the field and their overall physicality.

Philadelphia @ Minnesota (4:30pm) – Does anyone really have faith in a banged up Vikings team with Tavaris Jackson at the healm? Apparently not, the team was on the verge of a blackout because of the weak fan support. But they do have one guy named Adrian Peterson who I think is pretty good. Too bad for AP, he may not be able to beat the #3 Eagles defense by himself. And don’t forget that the Vikings’ defense then has to stop McNabb, Westbrook, DeSean Jackson’s speed, etc. Philly is Philly and I never go into a season thinking they aren’t a threat, and this year is no different. McNabb needs to do big things in order to stay in Philly, there’s no better time to do it.  Philly wins the game in the half-empty Metrodome.

Good luck.
