    Today is the day for the AFC Championship Game and the NFC Championship Games. The winner advances to Superbowl XLIV.

    Game #1- NY Jets @ Indianapolis Colts
    Game #2- Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints

    There has been a lot of attention in the media this year surrounding the playoffs. Brett Favre, NY Jets surprise run have led the topics.

    My Picks:
    Indy-27   NY Jets 17
    Saints-38   Vikings-27

    #3 pick--Favre will return next year to try again for another Superbowl as well as a MVP. He now trails Peyton Manning in that category by one.

      Hi Michael, I think Vikings will win 35-28

    I think the Jets defense will shutdown Peyton and also I think Jarred Allen will reek havoc on Drew Brees.

      If that happens, it would be Brett Favre against another team he played for and the  media would love it!

    The Jets cannot afford any mistakes against the Colts, and that puts tremendous pressure on the team.

    The Colts have much more leeway, they can put the game away early, but even if they don't, no one is better at 4th quarter comebacks.

      I do believe your Colts team will get to the Superbowl. Manning just has so many choices where to throw the ball.

    Despite the many naysayers, the JETS do have a chance.  Today is their Superbowl.

    When was the last time a rookie QB took a team to the Superbowl? Has it ever been done?

    1. Michael Willis profile image77
      Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      No rookie QB has started in Superbowl.

        Hey there Texan. Good to see you back.

        I could have sworn Marino was a starting Quarterback his rookie season...(shrugs) maybe it was his first starting season...

          Marino made it his second year.

            eye,

            I'm with you, I thought Marino got their as a rookie

    2. dohn121 profile image82
      dohn121posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I don't think so, but Marino did it in his second season big_smile

  9. Michael Willis profile image77

    What a pass play. Sanchez will to have to have a career/ break-out day for the Jets.

  10. dohn121 profile image82
    dohn121posted 8 years ago

    BTW, how smart do the Jets look now after picking up Braylon Edwards.  One man's trash is another's ticket to the Super Bowl (perhaps).

    1. Michael Willis profile image77
      Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That was a very smart move.

    Jets are looking good thus far.

      looks like they are shaking up Peyton . he looks mighty pissed!

    Marino wasn't a starter on the 83 team and Miami did not go in 84

    1. EYEAM4ANARCHY profile image81
      EYEAM4ANARCHYposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      He became a starter in game six of his rookie year and made the pro bowl. They made it to the '85 SB, which was played after the 84 season.

    Another long pass...Colts better tighten up that defense.

  14. dohn121 profile image82
    dohn121posted 8 years ago

    Um...I'm starting to BELIEVE.

    Update: 14-6 Jets

    1. Michael Willis profile image77
      Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      It is about ti be a bigger lead! I wouldn't want to have to come from too  behind against that Jets defense.

  15. dohn121 profile image82
    dohn121posted 8 years ago

    Geez this is a good game:

    17-13 Jets now.

  16. Ron Montgomery profile image60
    Ron Montgomeryposted 8 years ago

    Colts made some bad mistakes in the 1st half, but they look to be back on track now.

    1. Michael Willis profile image77
      Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      They are giving Manning more time to throw and defense is all over Wayne and Clark, so Garcon and Collie are making plays.

    The Colts are 3-1 when trailing at halftime. Nice, completely meaningless stat CBS gave us.

    Jay "Touchy" Feely is NOT feeling it today...I wonder what Scott Norwood is up to these days hmm

      He hasn't been dating Jessica Simpson has he?

      1. dohn121 profile image82
        dohn121posted 8 years agoin reply to this

        lol I wonder if those six points he should've gave them is going to amount to a hill of beans at this game's end.  In truth, this should be a 1 point game.

        1. Michael Willis profile image77
          Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          And that last miss was 52 yards.

      And the Colts are in!

  21. EYEAM4ANARCHY profile image81

    Those last minute scores in the first half are killing teams against the Colts.

    Tough to see Favre go out like that.  The turnovers killed them....and that last drive penalty with too many men in the huddle was painful to watch.
