I'm going for the home teams!

Colts
Eagles
Bengals (but maybe the Chargers get it done)!
Packers

I don't think any media types are on the Packers bandwagon, with 49ers being a more complete team, understandable.

People are playing the weather card, but I don't think the weather will help Packers that much. Some of those players have played in the cold, Boldin is from the Ravens.

... and rightfully so. If there is one team in the playoffs that is built to play anywhere, it's the 49ers.

Colts
Eagles
Bengals
49ers

Just a reminder for those keeping score at home...

New Orleans has NEVER won a road playoff game. EVER.

Not saying it can't happen but given their 3-5 road record and the fact they scored like 40 points a game at home and 15 points on the road, I'm taking Philadelphia despite the fact they had like a 10 game home losing streak that finally ended earlier this season.

Philly ended the season winning 6 of 7 I believe...

The year Tampa went to the Super Bowl, they had to go thru Philly in the NFC Championship. They had never won in temps below 40. I believe they won 27-10.

You still have to play the games. However, these aren't your father's Eagles - new regime, new outlook.

KC @ Ind Colts will win at home, then lose in Denver
NO @ Phi Philly wins at home outside in the cold. Interestingly both quarterbacks went to the same high school.

SD @ Cin Bengals don't loss at home and Chargers got lucky to play this weekend.
SF @ GB 49ers have beat GB 3 times in last two seasons. Its cold, but GB has too many on IR.

KC @ Ind. Maybe the Chiefs backups should play?? They actually looked pretty good in San Diego, while the starters the previous week at home against Indy outside of the first drive of the game looked pretty bad. Chiefs have a good defense, but they can't score enough
NO @ Phi. It's outdoors. It's gonna be about 20 degrees (weather.com has the low for Saturday at 22). Philly and the rest of the Northeast is getting hit by a snow storm, so there's gonna be snow on the ground. The field is going to be slippery. I can go on and on about why the Saints are in trouble.

SD @ Cin. Probably the worst of the 4 games this weekend. No disrespect to either team but if I HAVE to do something during any of these 4 games, this is definitely the game I'm picking.
SF @ GB. I said this the other day, but the Niners just have the Pack number. Packers defense is awful, and is worse without Matthews.
