Conference Championship Predictions

I was 3-1 in the wildcard round and 2-2 in the divisional round, so the worst I can do is finish .500 with the superbowl remaining.  This week features an AFC North grudge match in the AFC and an old NFC East matchup of wildcard round contestents in the NFC.  Here are my picks:

  • 24-14 Eagles Beat the Cardinals
  • 24-20 Ravens beat the Steelers

 

I normally wouldn’t go with the higher score in a Ravens Steelers game, but I think the sloppy weather might be a disadvantage to the defenses at times except that we might see more turnovers than usual.  I think both teams will be setup for some short field scoring drives which will artificially drive up the score.  As for the NFC game, I think the Cardinals are playing well right now but the Eagles have the defense that can stop the Cardinals and they have enough offense to win.  Again, both games are rematches and I think one team will get revenge (Ravens) and the other will continue their dominance over the other (Eagles).  A Ravens Eagles superbowl would be a great matchup.  We’ll see what happens…
