Well, those were two games, weren’t they?
So far, this tourney has gone straight chalk. Not one upset to be had and not one game within ten points.
The funny part is that both Saturday games were close at the half, teasing us with the promise of actual entertaining second half football. Alas, the Falcons’ tendency to play well at home (as well as Seattle’s tendency to play like shit on the road) took them over the top and the clock struck midnight on the pumpkins that were the Houston Texans.
I do not expect the Falcons to do much going forward. I still do not think they are a good team. They beat a flawed Seahawks team that had struggled all season to get into some kind of rhythm and was never able to get it. Where is your God now, Russell Wilson?!? I happen to know, but I’ll get to that later…
Yes, the Falcons have offensive weapons, but their defense is suspect. I don’t think they match up well against either team still alive in the NFC.
If you think I’m going to talk nice about the Pats, you really don’t know me.
So now we are left with the Cowboys hosting the Jordy Nelson-less Packers and the Steelers visiting the Andy Reid BBQ All-stars. You can call me a homer all you want, but I honestly think the Steelers are the best hope we have for a lower seed/road team to win a game.
The Packers would be a much more dangerous opponent for the Cowboys if 1) they were at home and 2) they had Jordy Nelson. The Packers’ D is not that good and the O won’t be able to keep up with DAK, Zeke, Dez, and Witten. The only question will be if the Cowboys can cover and I think they will.
In the evening game, switched from the day because of the weather, the Chiefs host a rematch of the game won by Pittsburgh handily at home. I have a feeling that it will be a repeat of the Houston-Patriots game. Close for a half and then the Steelers pull away. Of course, I can’t be unbiased here, so someone else tell me if I’m wrong.
FWIW, I went to Mass on Saturday night (thus missing most of Patriots-Texans. Yes, I know, I’m not stupid) like the good Catholic boy I am (shut up) instead of Sunday so I could watch the night game. Now, I’ve determined that my beautiful Mexican God only grants prayers related to sex, so that is why Brady made it through his game roughed up but in good shape. This is also why my Steelers may lose today.
On the bright side, I’m looking forward to the blowjobs this month! Thanks!
