Well, hmm, I know I have the AFC games locked up, but the NFC. Hmmm, I really like the speedy Rams on turf with their playoff experience over the Falcons. Although, Its Mike Vick. Their WRs are pretty weak and the Rams DBs will be fine.

The other game where the Vikes take on my Eagles depends on Randy Moss. If Moss is hurt, Eagles walk away with it but if Moss is > 90% then the Eagles will lose. With that being said, I have to go with my team, Eagles win 24-20 while the Rams win 31-17.

So my picks are as follows

Colts, Steelers, Rams, Eagles.

Colts v. Pats
Jets v. Steelers
Rams v. Falcon
Vikings v. Eagles

Colts - No Ty Law in the Secondary means that the Pats will be weaker in their coverage. Manning was in the zone against the Broncos

Steelers - Steelers D is just too strong for the Jets. THe blitzes should disrupt Pennington all day.

Eagles - There may be no Owens, but The Vikings awful defense, despite the game against the Packers, and the Eagle defense will make the difference.

Rams - The Rams have a lot of momentum right now and they are confident. Unless the Atlanta defense can stop the Rams, the Rams should win in a close one.
