    Bungles, Eagles, and Cards will all win next week. Bank on it.

    Vegas odds that I'm right: 100%

    With that out of the way, can the Ravens upset the Pats? yes

    Good God, I love the playoffs!

    I'm not convinced the Bengals can gain double digit yardage.

    And green bay is my pick next week as well.

    I am.

    They won't be resting Benson and I'm sure they held back today.

    Will they win? Who knows.

    Will they get blown out like they were today? No

    Go Go Green Bay!!! I want them to go to Minny so the media is too wrapped up in FavreBowl 3.0 to make a fuss over our boys.

    You think they held back against the Jets on sunday night?? :icon_huh:

    It was like what...24-0 at halftime, or 27-0. Palmer looked HORRIBLE. Bengals can still run the ball without Benson, but couldn't even do that with the other RB's against the Jets. The Bengals flat out got their asses kicked by halftime. All they did was punt in the first half. Their only first down was on a penalty with their starting offense minus Benson. They've ran for over 100 yards before with their other RB's in games.

    They got their asses kicked, BAD. Palmer looked like the rookie, not Sanchez. :yes:

    You think they showed everything they have in their playbook in a mostly meaningless game against a team they could be playing in a meaningful game a week later?

    I'm not saying they accomplished what they wanted to accomplish, nobody wants to get beat that bad, but I am positive they weren't in full throttle, yes.

    They didn't even get it out of "park" in the first half. There was nothing for them to show the Jets :icon_rofl:

    as pathetic that game was, it wasn't really Palmer's fault not most of it. Ocho, and Caldwel kept on dropping easy catches.

    don't know what the hell was wrong with Caldwel, plenty of passes that went Ocho's way Rivera (sp) shut him down.

    Bengals won't get beat down like that next week. if they lose at all.

    Be that as it may, they're hearts probably weren't in the game nearly as much as New York's.

    The game is part mental.

    Next week it counts.

    Don't fool yourself into believing we'll see another 37-0 game.

    the Jets aren't that good.

    Bengals are overrated, they lost 3 out of last four stumbling into playoffs. Thats who they are, they played outta their asses against the chargers mostly on emotion due to a players death. They will not beat the jets next week even at home. Jets def is too good, plus ochosnatcho left game with an injury. Their other 2 best receivers from last year; TJ left to Seattle and the other is dead. They just dont have what it takes on off to win in playoffs.

    Well with the NFC teams like Arizona and Philly, they're dangerous. They can score on pretty much anyone with just a little luck so they could absolutely punk Dallas and Green Bay right out of the gate and I'm saying they will. The Bengals on the other hand have been in decline, barely beating the Chiefs and getting destroyed by a motivated Jets team. I'm pretty sure they'll be much more competitive but Sanchez and the Jets defense will still put them away.

    They lost 3 out of 4, but there's 16 games in an NFL season.

    I wouldn't count GB or Dal out.

    Defense in the playoffs are the key imo.

    Dal & GB are near the top of points allowed.
