Quite alright with the hockey for me. Love it. Congrats to Canada.

My Hershey Bears are leading the league just now. Go to some games during the year.

The World Junior Tournament is quite entertaining watching tomorrows NHL players going at it.
Huge turnover for the Colts, this game is gonna go right down to the last play.

Here we go. Colts on their own 1 yard line, 2:41 to go with a 3 point lead.
I hope SD gets the ball back and kicks a FG as the clock runs out to send it to OT.....

This is gonna be a wild ending.
I want to see OT!
I kind of expect Rivers to throw a pick though.
Good stuff!

I had a feeling this game would go to OT...
Whoever wins the toss will probably win, especially if it is the Colts.

You called it.

Unless there is a fumble/int, SD will drive down the field and win.

I got a feeling this morning that this was gonna go to OT....lucky hunch
I also had a hunch the Colts would kick the FG, that could be wrong though.

I see the Charger’s biggest weakness is they don’t really have a lead WR. It’s actually Gates, the TE.

They must have at least 10 penalties. ....seemingly 8 of those 10 in the last quarter (+ OT).

Game over.

Wow,what a meltdown by the Colts. They fold late in the game and just gave the game away in OT.
I guess my prediction of the Eagles vs Colts SB is way off, LOL.
I suck at picking the games, 0-2 today.

That was mentioned on NBC. I wonder if a reporter will ask him about that.

Chargers peaking at the right time ... for once. Sproles is da man tonight. Hope LT gets healthy enough to contribute next week.

The road teams were favored in all four games this weekend, but you knew there’s no way home team loses all four games. Home field is just too much of an advantage in this league.

I am not a gambler but homefield advantage is a real factor and you should never discount it. Not sure what it is across all sports but its around 60% or more games are won by the home team. That is a decided edge however you slice it. When I saw the predictions of most saying the visitors would win all the games this weekend I felt they had a very good chance of being wrong.

Warner should have been league MVP, not Manning, who is a media darling who almost always fails to win big games.

I will save myself further embarrassment and not predict anything tonight, LOL.
I really am terrible at picking the winners.
I thought the Colts were gonna run the table but you see what happened tonight.
My picks for Sunday was the Eagles and the Ravens so you might want to put some money down on the Vikings and the Dolphins.......shesh.

It played out exactly like he said. Defense needs to make plays. They had the Chargers and 3rd and 11 and let them convert, they forced a fumble and failed to recover, and had them at 3rd and 8 and gave it away with a hold. The defense had their chances and failed.

Both Atlanta and Indy had better records than the hosts...most experts picked them like you did. Tomorrow Baltimore and Miami have the same records. Except for the tie Philly had they are the same with the Vikes as well. Even so....both visitors are favored again.

Great ending to the game. My new team, the Fighting Norv’s, played their butts off and eliminated maybe the toughest team they’ll have to play on their way to the Super Bowl!!! But that offensive line needs to step it up big time or they could have some trouble reaching their goal.

I suspect eventually the NFL will institute a rule that the team with the better record gets the home field advantage in the Wild Card Round.

I do not gamble either. I usually am wrong so I just play the pick ‘em games.
I think I get it right about 40 % of the time, that is pretty bad.
I'm really surprised the Cardinals won today, the Chargers did not rally surprise me that much.
We are in store for some great football through the whole playoffs. I hope all the games will be as good as tonight's game, that was fun.

Well, if it’s any consolation to you, my hot picks have a consistent,predictable track record of being wrong. Just recently I picked Bowl winners in Texas Tech, Alabama, and TCU, and even the Dallas Cowboys to make the playoffs! But that won’t stop me...

I doubt it. If they did something like that they’d have to turn the post season into an open tournament, ignoring all division and conference boundaries. The benefit of winning your division is a guaranteed home playoff game, if you give it to a wild card team with a better record you’ve invalidated the whole divisional structure, if they can’t get a home game then why should they even be in the playoffs. And way too many cross divisional rivalries have been made in the playoffs (like Chargers Colts, and Colts Pats) thanks to this structure, rivalries are good money, open tournament would make it almost impossible for teams to meet repeatedly in the playoffs.
