NFL Playoffs 2009: Week 1

Let’s see if I can do better than two years ago, where I blew a game in every round.

  • Indianapolis over San Diego. Sorry, maybe I’m a little bitter that the 8-8 Chargers are in the playoffs while the 11-5 Patriots aren’t. In any case, I think Indi is the better team.
  • Baltimore beats Miami. I really don’t think this one will be close.
  • Atlanta beats Arizona. This is a tough one… I’m largely basing this on the fact that Arizona is not consistent, even though I think they’re probably the better team.
  • Minnesota over Philadelphia. This one is tough to call. The Eagles are another team that can be really good when they show up, but really bad also. I’d give the edge to the home team, even though Philly is favored.
