Got the Colts and Chiefs as the afternoon tilt. Young upstart Patrick Mahomes vs the resurgent comeback player of the year Andrew Luck. KC is hotter than biscuits, esp at home, but they have a horrible playoff record since, oh, 1971. Indy’s getting 5 points.
Bucking the trend, I think KC wins but doesn’t beat the spread. 34-31 Chiefs
Dallas at LA? Part II of teams I don’t like, so in the interest of hating Dallas more I’ll take the Rams AND the spread (Dallas is getting 7?). Rams in a walk. 28-16 LARs
Chargers at NE. I’d love to pick the former San Dawgs, but the Chargers in the cold against Brady never works. SD is only getting 4, but NE by 7. 27-20 NE
Philly in the Big Easy. NO has been a bit erratic, and it’s hard to bet against the Philly Pholes Phenomenon. Good defenses have been shutting down Brees and Co, so Philly bucks the spread (+8) and and wins outright. 35-27 Iggles.
