And it couldn't have arrived any sooner for our tastes, being the perfect time of year.
For Chris Brown, it's a chance at a fresh start with a clean slated record after a disappointing regular season.
I won the year long competition, finishing with a 167-88 record, 20 games better than Chris. However, he is riding a lot of momentum heading into the postseason, finishing strong with a 14-2 record in week 17.
For 12 teams, the time starts now on their final descent towards a championship. In the next 11 games, Chris and I get another chance at bragging rights.
As always, we select games straight up, and not for gambling purposes.
Onto our Wild Card weekend picks:
Kansas City at Indianapolis
Chris: Colts – Indianapolis was clearly the better team in the first meeting, and I don't see a big difference for this one. The Colts should come out strong.
Steven: Colts – Indianapolis is as healthy as they've been in awhile. I'm never a fan of sitting guys for an entire game when you already know your placement. Staying sharp is critical for long term success. The Colts make enough stops of Jamaal Charles to shut down the Chiefs' attack.Read more... Join the Conversation...
