Pittsburgh over New York Jets - Give the Jets credit for hanging tough. Pittsburgh nearly blew this game with a blown punt coverage and two costly Roethlisberger INT's. I don't think any less of Pittsburgh for winning so close. They aren't a team that usually wins by big margins. I think New York got lucky last week on a missed field goal, and Pittsburgh got lucky Doug Brien missed two makeable FG's.

Atlanta over St. Louis - Not much to say here. Once St. Louis played a real playoff contender, I knew they would lose.

Minnesota over Philadelphia - I called this one correctly. I'm not sold on 8-8 teams going far in the playoffs. I'm impressed with the efficiency of Philly's offense. I liked how they utilized Westbrook as a reciever and out of the backfield. Minnesota got behind early so they were unable to establish much of a running game.

New England over Indianapolis - There's a reason the Pats have only lost a few games over the last two years. After seeing the snow, I wished I knew of a good sportsbook where I could place an under bet on this game. There weren't going to be 50 points scored in these weather conditions. Manning didn't necessarily play a bad game, but he didn't do enough to put Indy in position to win.
