I feel like the Ravens will win tomorrow. I envision a lot of Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce carrying the ball and I don't think the traditionally undersized Colts defense will have an answer for it. I might have a different gut feeling if it was on the road, but no. Anyway, I hope they can keep Ray Lewis playing another week. I was rooting for the Bengals as I'd rather play the Patriots than the Broncos in the next round, but whatever.
I think the late game will be a good one. I'm not sure what to make of it, but the better team thus far has been Seattle. But the Redskins being home underdogs scares me so I think they could win.

Um, what were your picks for today's games?
I didn't really make any formal picks. I felt like each game was a tossup, but that was without the news that Ponder wouldn't be playing.
I'm wondering what type of injury he had that was so severe that he had to be kept out of arguably the biggest game of his career...

I can understand that. I made the Packers pick as I just didn't trust Ponder anyway and I thought that the Packers would turn it on in the playoffs. I know that the Vikings had won last week, but I just didn't think it would happen for them this week.
I'm still confused why even an injured Ponder wouldn't have been better than Joe Webb, but whatever. I'll be curious to see what Leslie Frasier's explanation is for this.

A deeply bruised triceps, assuming it was his throwing arm, would obviously have an effect on his play.
Most definitely. An injury like that would of certainly hindered Ponder's already limited throwing abilities.
I still think that even with his off hand, he would trow better than Webb
anyway, it's looking like a Ravens game to lose. It's a shame that I won't be able to watch the redskins tonight, I'd like to see RGIII doing his thing!
I'm going to go 0-3 :pout
Well, I am sorry, Gary. I had thought that your Ravens were looking a bit shaky lately, but Lucky's inaccuracy popped up again. Then again, his receivers dropped a bunch of passes, too. I mean, he's thrown the ball 50 times. I thought Chuck Pagano made some poor play calls, such as not going for it on that 4th and 4 from the 5 yard line. I thought that the back up offensive coordinator with Bruce Arians being out sick did a bad job.
The Ravens played well though and the defense played fairly well.
I'm now 1-2 in the Wild Card games, with only my pick of the Packers over the Vikings working out. Come on, Washington, make me .500 for the weekend!
RG3 was so hurt in this game, but like I said before "I like Seattle on the road". :moshin OH YEAHHHHH! *KOOL AID MAN VOICE*

Patriots vs Seattle in the Super bowl. I call it.
I'd say our defense played better than fairly well. They didn't score a point on offense. I don't think this is the case of numbers lying either.
Well, your defense played well, but the Colts ineptitude hurt themselves quite a lot. The Ravens did do a good job hitting Luck, although most of the better teams have done well at that.
With RG3 going down with injury and the Redskins only recording 70 or 74 yards of total offense in quarters two through four, I went 1-3 this weekend in my picks. The Packers over the Vikings was the only pick I got wrote. :(
I hope RG3's okay going forward.
