Sports Boxers & Briefs: NFL Wild Card Edition

We are a month away from the Super Bowl, or where a football game will be played before and after a Katy Perry concert. The NFL playoffs kick off tomorrow with Wild Card Weekend.

We give you our predictions for the games this weekend:

Arizona Cardinals versus Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers have won 4 straight games even though their record is 7-8-1 and are hosting a teams that is 11-5 and is on it's 4th quarterback and might be doing American Idol quarterback auditions next season if Carson Palmer does not get healthy. The Cardinals have lost 4 straight. The Panthers last 4 wins though were against teams that my grandmother could have been playing and would have had better results. With that being said;

Cardinals over Panthers.

Baltimore Ravens versus Pittsburgh Steelers.

We really want to pick the Ravens especially with Steelers running back Bell being hurt. We just don't know if Joe Flacco or James Flacco or James Franco will show up as quarterback tomorrow.

Steelers over Ravens in a close game.

Cincinnati Bengals versus Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts are playing host to the Bengals on Sunday where they whooped Cinci 27-0 earlier in the season. Indy only shows up when it wants to, kind of like Andrew Luck shaving his hillbilly beard. The way the Cowboys smacked down the Colts a few weeks ago when they could have got the number 2 seed is quite pathetic.

Upset Of The Week: Cincinnati over Indianapolis.

Detroit Lions versus Dallas Cowboys.

Even Eminem could not save the Lions from the beat-down they are going to receive Sunday. With everything on the line last week for a division win against the Packers, Matthew Stafford played like Matthew Perry while he needed the confidence of Matthew McConaughey while reading Matthew 5:55.

Lock Of The Week: It would take Jessica Simpson showing up to the game for Dem Boys to lose this game. Dallas Over Detroit.


Diagnosis: Let's see how rusty I am at picking games.
