SE: Saints vs. Vikings, Colts vs. Jets/Chargers
It's almost all set. In the NFC, the championship game will be the Saints vs. Vikings. New Orleans took down the Arizona Cardinals 45-14. Drew Brees had a big day going 23-32, 247 yards and three touchdowns. Reggie Bush also had a productive day with five carries for 84 yards and one touchdown. The Vikings Brett Favre went 15-24 for 234 yards and four touchdowns. Sidney Rice caught three of those four touchdowns and had six catches for 141 yards. My prediction: Saints, 34-28.
In the AFC championship it will be the Colts vs. the winner of the Jets and Chargers. Deep in the fourth the Jets are leading 17-14. The Colts are still dangerous as Peyton Manning won the MVP award. Austin Collie, Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon will help Manning out. The Jets need a turnover free game from Mark Sanchez and a monster performance from Thomas Jones. San Diego needs a healthy LaDanian Tomlinson and a strong defensive performance.My prediction Colts, 31-21.
