Nfl Playoffs 2008 Week 3

By: Jeffery Reed

Last week, I was 3 of 4 in predicting playoff winners. I correctly predicted that one of the Manning brothers, would be involved in an upset, but I think very few people saw the other one coming. The Colts loss was the only one that I missed out on.

That loss kind of takes some of the thunder out of this week's picks. I had Indy upsetting the Patriots and going on to win the Super Bowl. Wrong!! Maybe next year.

With that, let's get to this week's picks. Let's start with the easy game. I don't see anyone left who can stop the New England Patriots from going 19-0 and winning the Super Bowl. The Patriots will make quick work of the San Diego Chargers this week. This one won't even be close. The Patriots cruise this week, then rest up for the big finale on Feb. 3.

Now the other game this weekend is very intriguing. The New York Giants are on a roll. They have lost only once on the road this year and they avenged that loss last weekend. 8 in a row on the road and a pretty nice home stand against New England is very impressive. Although the ride has been nice, I think it stops here. I think the cold and the show will be too much for Eli and crew.

The Green Bay packers play well in the cold and I can see Brett Favre going out as a winner. Although I waver back and forth on this pick, one thing is for sure. Being a self professed homer, I can guarantee this one thing. There will be a Mississippi quarterback in the Super Bowl. It will either be Brett Favre from The University of Southern Mississippi or Eli Manning from The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss).
