34 seconds left and Phil Simms just said the Broncos should get in FG range to try a long FG


for what? to cut to 24-16 and still have no timeouts and Colts get the ball back?

I had Denver, too, but I also knew that on any given weekend, Manning might start to look old. This was the weekend that it finally happened. I don't think the offensive play-calling in the first half really helped him, but Manning has been throwing wounded ducks down field late in the season for the past three years in a row now. I think it's safe to say that his window of opportunity for winning another Super Bowl has been slammed shut. Time for Denver and the rest of the NFL to think about life after Peyton, and time for Peyton to think about life after football.
Let's say I am glad to be wrong because I didn't want them back in the SB. But it was nothing about the Colts that made me think they had a chance to win in Denver based on how they played on the road.

No one escapes father time, Not even Peyton. I think he's just washed up now, he really didn't have a good year down the stretch by Peyton Mannning standards.

What do you mean? I didn't pay attention to the Broncos in December since I was so consumed with the Cowboys

So, how you feeling about this brillant comment you made last weekend?

And with Gronk going in healthy (crosses fingers) and Blount pounding the ball, I just think the Pats will take the AFC this year.

Colts at Broncos: As wishy-washy as the Colts have been, I'll go out on a limb and say the Colts will pull this one off. I really think Peyton is hurting, and Luck keeps on coming at you all game.

Cowboys at Packers: I don't think the Cowboys have what it takes to take down the Packers at Lambeau. Romo and Murray need to have a huge game to pull it off. Now if Rodgers is still hurt, that might make a difference, but for now I'll take the Packers.

Panthers at Seahawks: Panthers are playing good ball, but I can't see Seattle losing to them.
I swear this is the first time I've ever gotten every game right. I was wrong about the Pats running game.

I think they can beat the Pats, but the Seahawks are my pick to repeat. I don't think the Seahawks are bulletproof - the Panthers had more success than I thought they would moving the ball, but I still think that when they get it all together, Seattle's the best team in the league.

I simply cannot go against Brady and the Patriots in Jan... regardless
I don't see Carolina scoring enough points to beat the Seahawks in Seattle. They will be lucky to score 17, probably closer to 10.
The Cowboys can beat the Packers but it will be a monumental task because there defense has been relying on turnovers the past month or so and the Packers simply do not turn the ball over at home.. If Rodgers injures his ankle again, all bets are off but otherwise, I think you have to take the Packers.
Wow.. I nailed it but to be honest wish I hadn't. I couldn't really remember who I picked but I do know that every team I was pulling for LOST!
