Let’s take a brief break from the game of baseball and talk some football!!!
My mind is on those New England Patriots, and the big game vs. the Chargers on Sunday. In my estimation, this is by far the biggest challenge the Pats have faced since Super Bowl XXXVI against the Greatest Show on Turf.
I wonder how much of the game-plan Belichick used against Marshall Faulk in that epic Super Bowl will be deployed in this one against LT. And I wonder how much Marty Schottenheimer might study that tape to see what he might expect.
This is going to be a fantastic football game. Here are my predictions for the weekend and I’d like everyone to chime in with there’s.
New England 38, Chargers 34: Shootout for the ages ends with the Brady having the final possession.
Indianapolis 21, Ravens 10: Ravens D does a decent job on Manning, but their "O" comes up small.
Saints 32, Eagles 21: The feel-good team of these playoffs lives to see another week.
Bears 30, Seahawks 14: The Bears will be stopped short of Miami, but it won’t be this week.
