Last week I picked the following winners!

Colts
Seahawks
Ravens
Bears


So, now for my week 2 picks.

Colts at Chiefs - I love Mahomes (son of former MN Twins pitcher), but Colts defense is playing too well, and Andrew Luck makes his playoff drive. COLTS!!

Cowboys at Rams - I thought Cowboys would lose last week. I hate the Cowboys more than anyone but the Packers, so therefore with my luck Cowboys win again. Rams offense lost it's potency. Cowboys defense holds them to under20. COWBOYS.

Chargers at Patriots - I'm a big fan of Rivers. Been underrated his whole life. He led his NC State team to beat the Minnesota Gophers in some unknown bowl game several years ago. Rivers has the fighting spirit and the good story, and he seems to be a great family man. As a child, the Dan Fouts Chargers were my second favorite team, therefore, in Vikings-eque fashion the Chargers will lose in a close one. Probably some last second play. PATRIOTS WIN.

Eagles at Saints - I don't hate the Eagles teams. I just hate a good number of their fans. Carson Wentz has ties to North Dakota which is like western Minnesota. But he's not playing. The only way the Eagles win is if Foles has some magic. Closer game that a couple weeks ago, but Eagles can't close the gap on the rested Saints to win. SAINTS WIN.

Vikings vs Nobody

Vikings rested last week with Kirk Cousins getting some long needed rest in his suburban home. Vikings resigned Kevin Stefanski as Offensive Coordinator after his impressive 3 game debut in which the last two games the offense couldn't achieve a first down in the first quarter. I expect no first down again this week. NOBODY WINS off a missed field goal by our kicker... whoever it is.

I really can’t believe so many people on this board think that the Cowboys are going to beat the Rams. The Cowboys can win a low scoring game, but not a high scoring game on the road. They’re going to lose by double digits.

So, maybe it was mentioned but um... Why are you posting your picks on a fan message board of a team you are not a fan of? Sorry, I'm just trying to figure out why I or anyone else here should care about this.

I frequented this board during the playoffs last year and some during the off-season and during Vikings / Saints week.

I'm still in denial as I await our playoff rematch.

Yeah this didn't age well, lets just hope Sundays games are more accurate. And seriously Colts over the Chiefs? Maybe in Indy but not at home.

Here's a tip. Not full proof, but enough that it matters.

Don't get enamored by teams winning on WC weekend. The week off and homefield matters in the divisional round. Home teams win at a very high percentage in the divisional round.

Well I was 0-2 today. I’ll settle for one out of four being correct though. 😊

Hi all!

No problem. I'm still doing well overall with my success from last week.
Tough day today. Either game could have gone either way with the help of 3 more TD's, so I'll just call it bad luck.
Better luck tomorrow. I haven't been able to find the Vikings game on my TV Guide so that will be a tough one to follow.

You want to look for a show called 2018 Football Follies, you’ll find the Vikings games there.

Dude, I'm starting to believe that you are actually the Vikings GM just masquerading as a fan.
No one else could ever make picks this bad even if they tried. :scratch:
