Got my picks in yesterday. Thanks for continuing into the playoffs. It may offer me some redemption--------------or a continued run of frustration.

Not sure about the Chargers, but those are my picks for the other three.

Every game from hereon out, though, will be close to pick 'em. Each team in either conference looks just as likely to get in the SB as any other.

Those last passing attempts by Watson were awful. He's crumbled under the pressure tonight, it's been a very poor performance. I don't trust QBs whose best ability is running with the ball and I find it difficult to imagine Watson being able to do a Russell Wilson and ever be capable of being great as a pocket passer too.

Amazing how McDaniels backing out of the Colts job ended up having such a huge impact on both the Colts AND Eags.

As a player, Reich pulled off TWO of the greatest comebacks in all of football history (college and pro). Now he's in the midst of one of the greatest coaching comebacks ever.

Texans might have better individual/star players than the Colts (i.e: Hopkins, Watt), but they lack the depth of the Colts' roster. Hopkins was either extremely well-covered and/or injured tonight, and the Texans seemed totally unable to adjust to that.

Colts now head to Arrowhead, while the Pats prepare to face the Ravens-Chargers winner - wonder which team the Pats would prefer to play? Ravens may have a tougher D, but they also have a rookie QB - and no rookie QB has ever won at Gillette in the Belichick era.

Incidentally, IF Dallas and the Bears both win this weekend, then the Saints and Rams will both have to play a team that shut them down in the regular season.

Tonight's game is also a chance for revenge for Dallas, who was eliminated from the playoffs last year by a home loss to Seattle. But has Dallas genuinely improved enough to beat Seattle, or does Seattle simply have their number?

I made this point the other day but I see a lot of similiarities between the Seahawks and Colts. A great QB (Wilson, Luck), a great linebacker (Wagner, Leonard), one excellent WR (Baldwin, Hilton) with a solid supporting cast, a much improved O-Line, a tough, hungry RB (Carson, Mack) and lots of good, quiet talent scattered around. There's a lot to like about the Colts and I think I'd fancy them to beat the Chiefs, just like the Seahawks did, largely because in pressiure situations, I trust a Wilson or Luck more than I trust a Mahomes or Watson.

Very intriguing end to the NFL season though, these playoff games are very difficult to pick. I'm really nervous about the Seahawks/Cowboys, hopefully Seattle can pull it off. Chris Carson needs a big game.
