Divisional Playoffs Open Thread: Saturday

New, comments

After this weekend, we'll be down to just three more football games remaining in the NFL season. Enjoy it while you can, folks.

Use this thread for any live game discussion.

Saints vs Cardinals, 4:30, FOX
If this game is anything like last week's Cardinals/Packers game, this should be a great way to kick off the weekend. The Saints looked out of sync the last couple of weeks of the regular season. Will the week off benefit them or hurt them? To me, this game comes down to how Arizona's defense performs. If they play like they did last week, the Saints could easily put up 40. But will 40 even be enough in what should be a shoot-out?

Pick: Saints 38-28

Colts vs Ravens, 8:15, CBS
The Colts decided to rest their guys and prepare for the playoffs rather than trying to make history by going undefeated. Now we will see if Bill Polian's decision works out. Part of me would like nothing more than to see the Colts come out sluggish and lose this game just to spite Polian - who thinks he's the smartest football man alive. On the other hand, I really don't like the Ravens nor do I want to run the risk of the Jets - if they get lucky and win tomorrow - hosting the AFC title game next week. So I'll be hoping for Peyton Manning and company to come out hitting on all cylinders.

Pick: Colts 27-20

Enjoy the games, everyone.
