Philadelphia at Arizona, 3:00 P.M.
Philly is on a roll, having beaten Dallas to get in and then the Minnesotas and the defending champion New York Giants on the road. Here's the deal though - I still don't believe. Dallas was just bad, the Vikes weren't any better, and the Plaxico-less G-Men weren't as good as advertised. Combine this with the fact that they have zero sacks in the playoffs and I'm seeing a huge day for Kurt Warner. Plus, the Eagles cannot run the ball worth a damn. So kids, I'm picking the Arizona Cardinals to get to the Super Bowl. Read that again slowly. The . . . Arizona . . . Cardinals.
Baltimore at Pittsburgh, 6:30 P.M.
This one will be a barfight, an absolute war. It has everything from alleged bounties to spitting in faces. In other words, just the way both teams like it. Bottom line though? I simply cannot see Joe Flacco going into Heinz Field and beating the Steelers. That place will be rockin' and the field will be in horrible shape. Both defenses are stellar, but I'll take Pittsburgh's offense over Baltimore's any day. In addition, Ray Lewis and his dance disgust me, and he may have once killed a guy. Allegedly.
Pittsburgh 17, Baltimore 3.
