Arizona Cardinals VS. Philadelphia Eagles
No one can cover Fitzgerald. No, not even Asante Samuel one on one. Plus Boldin is playing, which could make things interesting, blowout wise.
However, McNabb will keep it close with a 300+ yard, 2-3 Touchdown day. Westbrook will do nothing against the "vaunted" Arizona defense.
Despite Arizona's defense doing not very well in the regular season, they stopped the Panther's Stewart/Williams tandem last weekend, so they will have no problem with Westbrook.
Baltimore Ravens VS. Pittsburgh Steelers
Warning: Ravens Fan Bias
This game will either be a close Ravens loss because of injuries, a close win on Flacco's arm (yes I said it), or a Pittsburgh blowout win.
Unfortunately, Joe Flacco is not yet trusted by the coaching, and unless he is and throws 30+ attempts (With limited turnovers), my Ravens don't stand a chance with the injuries they have.
Anyone I miss?
As a Raven's fan, I can only hope that Suggs' sling is a trick, and he will start and be effective. The possibility does exist.
Still pissed about that call in Ravens Steelers Round II. IF that pass to Santonio Holmes was not called a Touchdown, would the Ravens have won the game? 50-50 shot. A coin toss. A field goal. Two regular season wins later, the Ravens would have had the first round bye and then beaten San Diego. The Steelers would have made the playoffs and beaten the Dolphins and Titans. Would they have the injuries we do now? Yes.
One call changes everything.
Have a nice MLK weekend all.
