Not that it matters to anyone else other than me, but Iâ€™m 7-8 in playoffs picks (the one loss, obviously being the Steelers Wild Card Weekend).
Baltimore Ravens â€“ New England Patriots
Iâ€™ve seen some late-week picks going for the Ravens after early predictions had the Pats heavy favorites, despite Ed Reed calling out his quarterback Joe â€œEd Hardy of Unibrowsâ€ Flacco for being scared against the Texans. Sure, New England has a pretty weak defense compared to Baltimore, but all four of the Ravens 2011 losses came on the road, including giving up games to the listless Jaguars and San Diego Chargers. Picking the Patriots over Baltimore 31-17, but really rooting for a meteor/bird flu outbreak in Foxboro on Sunday. (I guess the Patriots are a lesser evil. YOU MEMBER I SAID SOMETHING NICE ABOUT YOU NEXT SEASON PATS FANS.)
