Here are the simple playoff predictions and all you need to know:

Take the home teams.  They get home field for a reason.  Even the two teams who won their divisions despite losing records won their first round games.

Take the teams with the bye weeks.  I’ve already explained this.

If you really feel the need to pick upsets, be selective and select no more than one per round.  You’re better off.

So next week I’m taking the Bears over the Eagles, the Cowboys over the Seahawks, Ravens over Chargers, Texans over Colts.

Divisional Round I take Chiefs over Texans, Patriots over Ravens, Saints over Seahawks, (one upset), Bears over Rams.

Conference Championships:  Chiefs over Patriots, Saints over Bears

Slightly Better Than Average Bowl:  Saints over Patriots.

There.  So long until the next Joke of a season begins. . .
