Pilfo's Wildcard Parlay
January 8th 2010 - Pilfo
Cincinnati may have the most balanced team in the playoffs this weekend and they
are playing the most 1 dimensional team in the playoffs. The Bengals simply do
not have a weak spot. They are above average in all categories from Running
Backs to Wide Receivers to Special Teams to Defense to their under-rated
Quarterback. The Jets have the best defender in the league and a very good
defense overall but their one dimensional offense and their rookie quarterback
will be their downfall in this game. Throw out last week's game between these
two. This one if for real!
Prediction: Bengals 24-10
The Dallas Cowboys have been an improving team and a streaking team down the
stretch which is what you want to enter the playoffs in the NFL. Romo has
improved his timing with his receivers but the running game stays average. The
Dallas defense has also stepped up in the past few games. So why do I like the
Eagles in this one? If the Eagles would have won last week, which they certainly
did not, we would be talking about the streaking Eagles instead of the streaking
Cowpokies. After the Cowboys got out to a lead last week, the Eagles pretty much
shut down their show as to not give anything for the Cowboys to look at on tape
to lead up to their rematch. The thing the Eagles do best, they did not do. Rush
the quarterback and get him out of rhythm. You will see a different Eagles team
on the field this week that will keep Romo running for his life. Count on Wade
Phillips to be out coached in this one.
Prediction: Eagles 27-21.
The Patriots are a team that has been running on heart, guts and great
game-planning. Brady has been admirable and the defense is over-performing. The
running game has been good also. That is where it ends though. The crude reality
is that the Pats are banged up and the Ravens defense will be targeting Brady
and all other injured players that take the filed. The Ravens offensive running
game will dictate this game and open up the passing game to Mason and Kelly
Washington who is actually the best receiver on the team. Look for a very
physical game that wears down the Pats midway through the 3rd quarter.
Prediction: Ravens 24-20
3 Team Parlay: Bengals -3 / Eagles +4 / Ravens +3.5
