    The winner moves on the loser goes home . .which one of this weekends Wildcard games are you predicting will be the biggest upset?

    NFC

    - New York Giants vs Atlanta Falcons -
    The Meadowlands is going to rock it this weekend and I am hoping to see the likes of Cruz dancing up a salsa storm! Osi healthy, Tuck, Jason Pierre Paul . .need I say more . .Ok I will, let talk Eli as he continues to improve every single season. They have been comparing this team to the SB 2007 Version . .and Im loving it.

    - New Orleans Saints vs  Detroit Lions - 
    Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are the real deal, but the Saints are as hot as ever and they are playing in the dome. This is sure to be a great game.

    AFC

    - Pittsburgh Steelers vs  Denver Broncos - 
    Will the loss of Rashard Mendenhall going to send this team home? With veterans such as Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, James Harrison and Troy Polamalu I doubt the Broncos defense will be enough to cover up the fact that everyone has figured Tim Tebow out.

    - Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans -  The Bengals are so young as most probably arent thinking they can win . .hmmm with  Matt Schaub and Mario Williams out, and Andre Johnson is not at his healthiest (hamstring) could be a win for Cincy.

    I'll take the Bengals to beat the Texans. The biggest loss the Texans have had this season isn't Schaub or Williams, it's defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. He'll be in the press box this week, right where he was last week. He needs to be full strength and down on the field for that defense to click.

      I think Wade is too busy thinking about his loss of a gall blatter and the fact he thinks he should be considered for the head coach!

      Im with you on the Bengals!

      Giants - Atlanta ?

        Yeah, Wade Phillips was the definition of mediocrity as a head coach, but he's one of the best defensive coordinators in the business. He turned one of the worst defenses last season into one of the best this season, and he did it without many significant player changes.

    I'm picking Denver.

    Not for any rational reason, I just enjoy having lots of people tell me how F-ing stupid I am.

    If Denver could beat the Steelers, it would easily be one of the biggest upsets of all time. I am not sure it will happen, but it would be fun to watch.
