New England @ Pittsburgh - Not too difficult a choice in my estimation....if Peyton Manning struggles that much against New England's D, then Rothlisberger is done like dinner. Pittsburgh's D will keep the game close, but Brady's experience and poise pays off in the end. He just finds a way to get it done.....New England wins 20-10

More Rushing yards: Bettis or Dillon

Atlanta @ Philadelphia - I didn't think Philly looked overly sharp against Minnesota today. That being said, their defence is very, very strong, but I think Mike Vick will find a way to work some magic and help Atlanta come out on top. As long as they can contain Westbrook, I think they win the game.....Atlanta wins 27-20

Wow, we have ourselves a couple of great games! Both have the potential to be classics!

NFC Championship Game:

Should be a very interesting matchup. I am anxious to see how the Eagles' defense comes out against Vick. He is so hard to prepare for, and people can say "they need to contain" Vick all they want, but he is impossible to plan for. The lack of a passing game will hurt the Falcons but I don't see it stopping them in this one. Also the Eagles receivers will have a much tougher day, same with McNabb. The Falcons pass rush is much more potient then the Vikings, so I do expect McNabb to have pressure. When McNabb is under pressure and made to throw on the run, his passing really falls off. I think the Falcons defense is the difference maker in this one.

Falcons 21 Eagles 17

Dunn with more rushing yards.

AFC Championship Game:

Well what can I say about the Pats performance against the Colts...hmmm...perfect comes to mind. Keep Manning off the field and play tough D, worked to a T. Steelers were less then dominant in their game against the Jets and survived by the skin of their teeth (and Brien's bum kicking). The Steelers defense played very well but this weekend they face a much better QB, better O Line, better(IMO)/very determined RB, and most important of all more experienced team.

If Ben plays like he did last week, then the Steelers are in for some trouble. Of course they will feed the Pats a steady dose of Bettis/Staley but if the Pats are able to hold them in check and make Ben beat them, they are in good shape. To me Ben looked very nervous and not 100%. He made two very bad/rookie passes and really should have costed his team the game, look for the Pats to put a lot of pressure on him and force some more bad throws.

Should be a very entertaining and interesting game, as both defenses are rolling right now.

Patriots 17 Steelers 13

Dillion with more yards.

How fair is it that those who picked the wildcard games correctly are now tied with those who bombed out in the first round because of a rule change? You miss picks, you lose. Isn't that how it's supposed to work?

You need to just drop all the bonus stuff and redo the standings to reflect the picks.

What's even more annoying is the constant moaning. Alexander set up this contest and if he wants to do it this way then it's his prerogative, if you dont like it then dont play. It's just a friggin' prediction contest, it's free, and as far as I know there's no prize for winning. So cut the whining already.

Big carries though plus isn't Buckhalter back yet?

Buckhalter has been on I.R. all season.

In a normal game of about 55-60 offensive plays, the Eagles will pass for about 35 plays and run for 25. Of those 25, Westbrook will get about 10-15 carries. That's the way it's been the majority of the season.

I expect Levens to actually get a lot of carries today. He's become the designated power back that will run the short yardage plays for the team and in the red zone....and if there are strong gusts, He'll probably get even more touches than the 10 or so a game that he normally does.

I thought Buckhalter would be back in time for the championship game he must have torn that leg up pretty badly
