Wildcard number four — Eagles over Vikings

Filed under: Sports — Tags: , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 6:51 pm

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Minnesota Vikings 26-14 in a spirited game. Maybe too spirited looking at some of the hits delivered by the Eagles defense. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Giants ask the league to watch Brian Dawkins penchant for helmet-to-helmet contact very closely next week.

That said, Philly looks like the charmed team right now. Not great, but good and they seem to have all the breaks falling their way. You can’t discount that in the playoffs. Just ask New York last year.

Here’s next weeks matchups:

NFC

Eagles at Giants

Cardinals at Panthers

AFC

 Chargers at Pittsburgh

Ravens at Titans

Wildcard number three — Ravens over Fins

The Baltimore Ravens advance over the Miami Dolphins 29-9. The game featured five turnovers by the Fins, but it’s fair to say the errors were not unforced.

Baltimore played a methodical, and solid, game.

Wildcard number one — Cards over Falcons

In a battle-of-the-birds, the Arizona Cardinals win their first home playoff game in some sixty-odd years 30-24 over the Atlanta Falcons.

I’m going to admit to floating around during the game and not really watching the every play, but from what I saw the Cards overcame both the Falcons and the guys in black and white for a bit there.

Congrats to Arizona.

Cowboys out of playoffs

Filed under: Sports — Tags: , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 6:27 pm

In losing to Philly 44-6, Dallas missed the playoffs and looked unbelievably flat for the second straight week.

I’ve always supported him, but I’m starting to think Romo isn’t the guy. He’s pretty much whiffed on every single big game in his career.

(And a quick note to Roy E. Williams — STFU. Don’t run your mouth and lay an egg in the biggest game of your career.)
