The divisional round is usually the most exciting weekend of the NFL season. The NFC games should be pretty good, but the AFC games look like real clunkers. Maybe one of the underdogs will surprise everyone and make a game of it, but since I hate both of those teams, I hope they don't. Here are my picks and the schedule.
Baltimore @ Denver (3:30 central CBS)
The Ravens are a 10 point underdog in this game. Given Peyton Manning's history of shredding Baltimore, that number probably isn't big enough. The Broncos already hammered the Ravens once this season. I don't expect the game today to be any different. Take the Broncos.
This should be a really fun game to watch. One of the best quarterbacks in the league against one of the best defenses in the league. I expect this game to go down to the wire, but I am hesitant to ever bet against Aaron Rodgers. The Packers are a field goal underdog. I'll take the Packers.
