Rematch weekend for these 3 qbs. Can Russell & Rodgers get revenge this weekend?


I hope everyone had enjoyed the wild card weekend. Trust me, I did & there was a lot of surprises. Last week, we saw the Chiefs made the Texans look bad & Brian Hoyer wet the bed, the Benagals (especially Adam Jones & Vontaze Burfict) picked a wrong to self destuct, resulting in a Steelers comeback win, Blair Walsh doing his best Ray Finkle impression (laces out) costing the Vikings a win & the Packers finding their mojo back versus the Redskins. We also had some news from non playoff teams as the Browns & Giants hired new coaches in Hue Jackson & Ben McAdoo while the Chargers & Rams will be relocating back to Los Angeles. It’s a homecoming for the Rams, who left 21 yrs ago & it’s been a while since the city has a team. I wonder what have in store for this weekend. Let’s break down the divisional round.


Kansas City vs New Engalnd- The Chiefs are coming off a dominating performance last week in Houston & they were lucky that Jeremy Maclin’s injury wasn’t that serious & it was only a high ankle sprain. For the Pats, they had two weeks to shake off that loss in Miami & it also gave some players who were banged up time to heal. Only news they made this week was Belechik showing up yesterday sporting a black-eye & Chandler Jones being released from a hospital after a medical issue. I wonder if they will have a weather issue like it was in Minnesota. Can the Chiefs slow down Brady & the offense, who will have Edelman back. The Pats are a 5 pt home have. I like the Pats to win & take the slight over.


Randy: New England

Green Bay vs Arizona- The Packers found their mojo back last week in their win over the Packers. They got a balanced attack from their running game & that took the pressure off Aaron Rodgers. He struggled a little bit in the 1st qtr, but woke up in the 2nd qtr & it carried on til the end off the game. For the Cards, they want to shake off that home loss to Seattle two weeks ago. They had to sign Jason Babin to fill in Alex Okafor’s sopt.. It’s also a rematch from 3 weeks when the Cards pretty much destroyed the Packers, getting 8 sacks on Rodgers. Can that Packers offensive line protect Rodgers & will the running  game show up again? The Cards are a td home fave. I like the Cards to win & cover the points.


Randy: Arizona


Seattle vs Carolina- The game of the week!! The Panthers get home field advantage & might have Jonathan Stewart bad for this contest. For the Seahawks, they have to thank Blair Walsh for their win as he missed a gimmie in the final seconds for their win. It was an ugly win because of the 10-9 score. They should have Marshawn Lynch ack for this game. It’s a rematch from week 6 when the Panthers came back & defeat the Seahawks 27-23 in Seattle. That was around the time the Seahawks were blowing 4th qtr leads & they couldn’t stop the opposing tight ends. It’s going be a defensive affair & Josh Norman doesn’t care that they are facing the NFC champs. The Panthers are 2.5 home faves. I like the Panthers by a fg.


Randy: Carolina

Pittsburgh vs Denver- A rematch from week 15 in which the Steelers had to overcome a 21-7 1st half defect to defeat the Broncos in Pittsburgh. This time, the rem atch’s in Denver & they have some questions heading into this game. Number 1 is the health of Ben Roethlisberger, who suffered torn ligaments in his throwing shoulder as well as a sprained AC joint. He’s day to day & the other question is Antonio Brown, who’s in the concussion protocol thanks to Vontaze Burfict. Speaking of the Bengals, I don’t know why Pacman thinks he’s faking thet injury. They also might not have Deangelo Williams for this game. I guess it’s really next man up for the Black & Yellow. For the Broncos, they’ll have Peyton Manning back for this game & hope that Demarcus Ware will be healthy. It’s gonna come to the defense of both teams & quarterback play. It’s an even pick em for this game. I like the Broncos because the Steelers are so banged up.


Randy: Denver

Last week, yours truly & Randy went 2-2 in the wild card picks while Noez went 1-3. Like I said earlier in the blog, congrats on the Browns for the hiring of Hue Jackson & the Rams coming back to Los Angeles. Happy b-day shootouts this week to Anthony Prieto, Antoinette Martinez, Michael Vargas, Regine Buenviber, Charlie Salas, Jayo Bossluv, Milinda Foley, Sheronda Hogue, & Yvette Calzada. Hope everyone has a safe MLK weekend. Let’s keep this streak going Cavs & I’m out. Peace!!
