NFL playoff predictions

It's much more interesting for me to watch if I feel like I have little sumthin' sumthin' invested. I have no money, so I'll make some public predictions. The VICTOR of each matchup is bolded and all-capped.

Wildcard Round

RAMS at Seahawks
Jets at CHARGERS
Broncos at COLTS
Vikings at PACKERS

Divisional Playoffs

RAMS at Eagles
Packers at FALCONS
Colts at PATRIOTS
Chargers at STEELERS

Divisional Championships

Rams at FALCONS
STEELERS at Patriots

Superbowl

STEELERS over Falcons - 34-13

It is a little unclear at this point which wildcard victor will play which divisional winner, so these predictions are a little shaky. Still fun.

*And staying on the sports tip (I'm a much bigger and more knowledgeable MLB fan than I am an NFL fan), a note to my boys the Chicago Cubs: Throw all of your money at Carlos Beltran. If you let the Houston Asshos sign him, your two-decade peak is behind you, you're finished--you hear me? Finished!

Zach, Zach, Zach. I respect you so much, your poetry, Octopus, it's all great . . . but do you really think the Rams will beat the Seahawks, let alone the Eagles? Oh my friend.

Kudos to you, sir. And kudos again. The Rams triumph. Still: there is no way in God's green hell that they'll beat the Eagles.

Michael,

Thanks for your kudos. I am waiting however until next week to launch some sort of smug arrogant response. I'll have more ammunition. There is still a chance I think that the Rams will have to play the Falcons. Either way, you'll feel a little salty (do they say that where you are?).

I in no way want to portray myself as an Eagles fan. In fact, I'm a Giants fan (though I more readily associate myself as a Dallas Cowboy / New York Yankees hater than a fan of any particular team). So being a Giants fan I hate the Eagles, Redskins, Cowboys. Still, if I were a bettin' man, I wouldn't bet against the Eagles. Though, San Diego and Green Bay did lose . . .
