Championship Games

Championship game Sunday is always a lot of fun (more if the Seahawks were involved).  I find myself intrigued by both games:

Indianapolis vs. New York Jets – A rematch from the Week 15 debacle that was the pulling of all Indy starters when they had the lead and a perfect season. The Jets, who needed a win to stay alive in the playoff hunt, dispatched the Colts backups and got a controversial win.  Today, they won’t get that same luck. However, they are now on a big-time roll.  This game will be closer than you think due to the Jets D.  I’m rooting for the Jets, but I think Peyton Manning is too good.  Colts 24 Jets 13

Minnesota vs. New Orleans – The Saints have never been to the Super Bowl. The Vikings last trip was under Bud Grant, Fran Tarkenton, Chuck Foreman, and the Purple People Eaters.  This is a toss up.  I think it will come down to which QB has the better day – Drew Brees or Brett Favre.  I think Minnesota is the more talented team overall, but the home-field is strong for championship games. I’m rooting for the Saints and I think they will win a shoot-out.  Saints 38 Vikings 35

What do you think?

  1. I am less intrigued by the early game. My feelings towards it are like my feelings towards the National League in baseball. There has to be something there for me to get into it.

    I like the Colts to win, and am rooting for the Saints in the later game. Otherwise I want it to go the other way; Sanchez vs. Favre….youngest up against the oldest.
