    Surprised that NBC didn't snatch up the SF-GB game. Guess they already committed to the Saints due to the possible Dallas matchup (which would give them the highest ratings).

    Good games all around. SF-GB has a chance of being another classic.

    Brees not in the dome though. Hoping for another snow game.

    San Fran and NO got hosed though. Much better records but have to play on the road due to the division winners. This rule needs to be changed.

    I think the Packers are going to ruin the 49'ers season. The Eagles are going to end the Saint's season. I can actually see the Packers going to the SB, but I will pick the Eagles instead. They will upset the Seahawks. Eagles/Broncos SB.

    There have been wars and peace. Justice has been served and denied. In the blink of an eye it will be 2014, people will rise up, nations will fall, and the Saints will take the superbowl in a few weeks time.

    Saints 31- Patriots 17

    I'm just glad we made it. Cincy's D is scary but I'm feeling an upset.

    As Rivers said, there's no team they can't beat, and there's no team that can't beat them.... haha.

    KC winning in Indy will give them lots of confidence heading further into the playoffs.

    Problem is, they will lose in Indy and go home. I have no faith in KC at all. Their D is nothing special and their O is mediocre at best.

    Anybody else notice how much less buzz there is surrounding the NFL playoffs when there are no fantasy implications?

    Fantasy football does more for regular season NFL football than people expect... to the point that it makes a regular season "week" feel like more of an even than the actual playoffs.

    As long as Charles' legs work, I have faith in KC's running game. Though I will grant that Smith isn't a very good QB.

    The defenses of both teams are on different trajectories. KC started out suffocating, but recently, hasn't looked well. Indy started off loose, but recently, has clamped down.

    Chiefs are in a serious downward spiral. After starting 9-0, the only teams they beat were the sorry Redskins and Raiders. The Colts seemed to have righted the ship (somewhat) in recent weeks.

    IMO, this is by far the easiest of the 4 games to call. Chiefs aren't about to beat anyone good right now.
