Moose's Weekly Picks

These are the times that try men's souls.  The playoffs.  Last week we were a little pre-occupied with the Iggs game to get a proper post up.  It would have been a solid week if Fat Andy and the Chiefs hadn't epically collapsed in the second half.  This week features several interesting games, as well as a few rematches of regular season match ups.  Let's take a deep dive.

New Orleans (+8) at Seattle: New Orleans exorcised their road demons last week in a last second victory against the Iggs that ripped my heart out.  Drew Brees played lousy against an average defense though.  I think they get spanked against a real defense and Russell Wilson at home.  PICK: Seattle

Indianapolis (+7) at New England: Really tough to figure out which Colts team will show up.  Both showed up in different halves last week.  The Pats are undefeated at home, but seven points is a lot to give up to a seemingly solid Colts team.  One thing is clear though, the Colts trading a first rounder for Trent Richardson was a worse deal than when Homer traded his danish to Bart for a delicious doorstop.  PICK: Indy

San Francisco (-1) at Carolina: Carolina beat San Francisco at Candlestick earlier this year, but the playoffs are different.  I think San Fran shows Cam Newton what they are all about this week, and I think Jim Harbaugh will out coach Ron Rivera.  San Francisco is also finally completely healthy, while Carolina is a bit dinged up. PICK: San Francisco

San Diego (+9.5) at Denver: According to the Eagles home opener theory, the Chargers are going to win the Super Bowl this year.  They have also beaten Denver in Denver this season, and Big Phil Rivers is looking mighty good.  9.5 is a lot to give away knowing all those facts.  PICK: San Diego  NO DOUBTER

OVERALL: 116-121-6
