NFL Play-offs, WildCard round/pick the winner and discuss.
I thought it was a pretty good season. As a Cleveland Browns fan it was especially satisfying to be able to watch every Sunday with an expectation of winning, of actually being the better Team on the field. I thought there were several weeks with some compelling match-ups and the way things ended on Week 17 was perfectly scripted --- the late games held suspense and the last spot at the "Dance" came out of the very last game. The scheduler(s) really planned it well!!!
So now we head to the play-off round and the WildCard games. We all have our favorites and there are, again, some compelling match-ups and even some re-matches from the regular season. Those are always interesting. Let's pick the winners and say why, I'll start. Then we can get into the ForumFistFight as the weekend approaches and move on to the next round.
Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans. ---- Houston because of home field.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys --- Dallas mainly because of Dak Prescott and a healthy, rested Zeke Elliot.
LA Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens --- this may be the best WildCard game. If the Chargers have paid attention they'll "stack the box" and force Jackson to pass, then let Phillip Rivers pass them to victory.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Chicago Bears --- Philly has surged but 'Da Bears are back. How can I not roote for my homeboy, Mitch Trubisky!!??!!
