NFL 2012 Playoffs Round One Round-Up

The Wife steals a game this week due to Tebow pulling another miracle, and ties things up with me.

Bengals @ Texans
The Wife: Bengals
Me: Bengals
Steve: Texans
WINNER: Texans (solid if unspectacular QB play by Yates and an awesome Arian Foster makes for a good offense)

Lions @ Saints
The Wife: Saints
Me: Saints
Steve: Saints
WINNER: Saints (for all the hype, Lions D-Line couldn't get any pressure on Brees)

Falcons @ Giants
The Wife: Giants
Me: Giants
Steve: Giants
WINNER: Giants (a lot of people made fun before this season for Eli saying he was an "elite" QB, but he's played some of the best football of his career this season . . .)

Steelers @ Broncos
The Wife: Broncos
Me: Steelers
Steve: Steelers
WINNER: Broncos (gotta admit, that was a damned exciting ending and I was jumping up and down and cheering--and I don't even *like* the Broncos!)


The Wife: 3-1
Me: 2-2
Steve: 3-1


The Wife: 156-107
Me: 156-107
Steve: 168-95

Hey now, I know I ran away with the best record of the year but that's no reason to cheat me out of a game now. In fact you would need to cheat me out of a game for each week of the second half of the season if you wanted to remain close now. ;)

Since I'm already here though I'll go ahead and give you my picks for next week...

NO @ SF - NO : I'd love for SF to prove me wrong but I don't think they will.
Den @ NE - NE : No way, NO way, I see Denver getting past New England.
Hou @ Bal - Bal : This is the one this week where I went back and forth before deciding on my pick.
NYG @ GB - GB : Green Bay's offense is just too much to handle...

Crap--sorry about that, fixed!

So what happens in the event for a tie? Tiebreaker? Both write ... perhaps differing sides of the same story? Just curious...

Hm, a very good question. I'll talk to The Wife and try to come up with a solution.
