Green Bay helped me start things off right last week. Seattle got off to an early start because of Ryan Grant’s fumbles. I’d say he made up for it. I kept rolling with New England. Bill Belichick took away the running game and adjusted to render Jacksonville’s defense useless. He sure can gameplan. Sunday didn’t go quite as well for me. San Diego got by Indianapolis. Peyton Manning had two chances to take the lead and failed to both times. His little brother will be playing next week though, as the G-Men handled the Cowboys.

Last Week: 2-2
Overall Playoff Record: 4-4
Overall Season Record: 158-102

Conference Champion Picks
Green Bay over New York Giants
The Giants have played great on the road. They are on fire. However, I think they will have trouble against Green Bay. Brett Farve is too close to returning to the Super Bowl to let this one get away. The balanced attack that Ryan Grant has provided will be too much for the G-Men to handle. Green Bay will be much tougher on D as well.

New England over San Diego
This game looks familiar. They faced last year, and only a poor decision to return and interception kept San Diego from beating the Patriots. This is a much different team though. The Pats are too tough. You make one mistake and it’s over.

Those are my picks. What are yours?
