notes on government, sports and popular culture
With the help of a snowstorm, the Patriots shut down
Peyton Manning and the Colts. Is there any doubt they will do the same to Roethlisberger, after his performance against the Jets? I'll go ahead and call it now- hearts will be broken in Pittsburgh.
I would say the Philadelphia-Atlanta would be easy to call as well, because you have the same situation- a dome guy playing in cold weather. But Michael Vick handed the Packers their first home playoff game two years ago. So the NFC matchup is a little tougher to call.
