    Now that my head has spoken, I will mention that my heart is pulling for Arizona.

    past-the-pylon-contest1
    This contest is as simple as picking the playoff winners.  OK, maybe it’s not that simple since you never know what is going to happen in the NFL, especially in the playoffs.  You just have to go to Past the Pylon every week and submit your picks for the current round.  If you pick the most correct games you’ll take home $25.  It’s that simple.  Here is the link to get started on this weekends games.
