The Divisional Round

Well, I went 1-3 last week, but that's ok. It's a new week.
One interesting tidbit last week - all four losing teams were called for 12 men in the huddle on Offense! That's very rare to see called at all, and to have it happen four times in one week was weird.
Some other thoughts:
Marvin Lewis really needs a challenge advisor. Both of his sucked really bad, and he needs someone near him to give him advice on those.
How did we see inadvertent whistles stop *two* serious plays - the scoop and score that should have been in Lions/Saints, and the backward pass turned into an inc in Denver/Pitt? That rule really needs to be tossed out.
Will we see Mike Smith's 4th down percentage climb not that Mularkey's a Jag? Those were terrible plays Mularkey called on 4th and 1s.
And, on a side note! J-E-T-S! Jets Jets Jets!! Melting down like marshmellow's tossed into a blast furnace. It's so nice to see! Sniping at each other, Rex looking lost, and hiring that offensive genius, Tony Sparano, to be the OC. How Wonderful!
On to this weeks picks:
Ravens vs Texans: Ravens will take this one. They're awesome at home this year.
Pats vs Broncos: We beat them in Denver, and we have Spikes, and Chung back for this one. We win, setting up my last year's predicited AFC Championship Game of Ravens vs Pats.
Saints vs 49ers: Much like Seattle did to Brees and company last year, the 49ers will end the Saints run.
Giants vs Packers: Between the tragedy of this week and JPPs less than wise words after the win over the Falcons, the defending Champs will be fired up. Packers win, in a blowout.
