    The playoffs look pretty tough to choose. Glad I'm not making any picks for any championships.
    I'd probably go with:

    Falcons@Cardinals - I think Arizona can win this despite their recent struggles.
    Colts@Chargers - Chargers haven't looked like a playoff team all season which means they will probably win. Colts haven't done that much to impress me despite their record.
    Eagles@Vikings - Just when Eagles look like they are ready to assert themselves they disappoint. Go the Vikings.
    Ravens@Dolphins - Didn't the Dolphins beat the Ravens for their only win last season? Payback time.

    I think you can still join us Webz. Feel free.

    I like the Colts, Eagles, Ravens and uhmmm...Cardinals, I guess. But any could go either way.

    Baltimore and Philly are 3 point favorites.
    Atlanta is a 2 point favorite.
    Indy is only a 1 point favorite.

    These are all the away teams.:bs:

    I'm going with all the HOME teams. :confused:

    End of the season. Home fans going crazy.:beer:

    There's a reason teams are 21-11 at home, :victory:
    during this round of the playoffs.:football:

    Each spread can be overcome by the home team.:eyebrows:

    Wish Me luck on this one...:caked:
    I'm gonna NEED it...:nailbiting:

    I don't know what to do in survivor. I took the Ravens but so did another guy. That would pretty much leave me with the Giants next week, but he has them left too.

    I could try to end it now and take the Chargers ( hoping the Ravens & Colts lose...therefore eliminating the competition and I could win it outright. If I take the Dolphins it eliminates the Raven guy automatically, if i win.

    Sigh..this will not end well for me. PLEASE Help...

    Dolphins, Ravens, or Chargers...

    I refuse to take Minny. Nothing else left this week

    Ravens are the favored choice this week according to the participants.
    They have 56% of the votes against the Dolphins who have 44%.
    The Chargers are seen as an 18% choice for victory this weekend.
    The group at Picks would seem to indicate that Ravens are your choice.

    If I were you, I would take the Vikings...

    1. They are 6-2 at home while the Eagles are 3-4-1 on the road.
    (Remember...they TIED Cincinnati)
    2. Adrian Peterson COULD be the difference at home.
    3. This leaves you with more options next week after you win.
    4. Minnesota is 7-2 in their last 9 games...

    Wow. Ok, Nemo. Your logic makes perfect sense. I'm leaning toward the Ravens still...but your logic makes sense. I like the options picking the Vikes would leave me for the stretch run...IF...I survive this week.

    Thanks. I'll think about it...

    Ok, I am going with the Vikings. I defer to the past champ's logic and intuition.

    Nemo, If I lose I am placing the total blame on YOU.:swear2:

    If I win, I am taking total credit!!! :D:D:D

    Welcome to the world according to Darth! :P

    I always made picks with the plan of leaving meyself viable options towards the end of the season. That's why I took Tampa Bay against the Raiders the last week. It was my biggest guaranteed win...:help2:

    Tater...You are the only one picking a home team.

    The other two are picking the Ravens and the Colts.

    Both those games are away games.

    Congratulations...You win.:)

    I agree with Nemo's Viking logic. Eagles are not a cinch. A Vikes win would leave you with at least one option for next week if it goes that far.

    What if he loses all options late? Loss by default ?
    Nemo if 21-11 is the #s, shouldn't you take at least one home team ?

    Good question, but all 4 games have a point spread of 1 to 3 points.
    It would be hard to choose the right team.
    This week, there are no obvious choices so you have to look at other factors.
    If there was one game with a signifigant point spread, than I say go.
    I believe that fans in places like Minnesota and Arizona will make the difference.
    The Metrodome is REALLY loud, and Arizona is as hungry for a playoff win as the Lions are.

    We've had one win in 51 years. For Arizona, it's one in 61 years.

    Final decision (really)

    I'm picking all road teams in Picks game.

    Eagles playing so well lately, so I am picking the Ravens in survivor.

    It's a tough week. Hard to say what will happen.
    Your decision is as good as any here.
