My two favorite teams are in the playoffs and I couldn't be more excited about it, esp. since both got in my beating divisional rivals. (The Redskins manhandling the Cowboys Sunday was just wonderful).
Now they both go on the road for the opening round and the NFL guy over at USA Today
has picked the home team in both games. He makes some good arguments as to why he believes both teams will lose, but I don't agree.
That said, if I had to pick one of the two I have more faith in to win, it'd be the Washington Redskins. They're playing some great football right now, with a strong defense that held the Cowboys to one yard rushing last Sunday. And the offense is seeming to come together at the right time for what could be an interesting run in the playoffs. And I'd love to see the Redskins beat Seattle and then head to the center of all evil in pro sports to take on the most evil team in pro sports for the second time in two weeks. Deep down, you know the Cowboys want no part of the Redskins again.
Man, I love football...
