The Baltimore Ravens play the Tennesee Titans at 4:30PM today. I expect this to be a defensive battle. They did play earlier in the year with the Titans winning by a score of 13-10. I expect a very similar game with the Titans winning 17-14. The weather will not be a factor in this game with 45 degree temperatures and no precipitation.
The Arizona Cardinals travel to Carolina to face the Panthers tonight at 8:15PM. The Cardinals are 0-5 on the east coast this year and i dont expect them to get their first win tonight. The Cards may be without star wideout Boldin and that is not good for them. I expect the Panthers to win 28-14 and that may be genrous.
The two games tomorrow will feature the Super Bowl Champion Giants hosting the Philadelphia Eagles who are flying high at 1:00PM tomorrow. The weather for this game will be a factor with 15-25mph winds expected and frigid temperaturs. I expect a rough and tough NFC east battle. I see the Giants prevailing by a score of 24-17. I think the Giants will get to McNabb a little and slow down Westbrook especially with the passing games being taken out by the weather. I think the Giants will run it and wear the eagles D down and control the time of posession.
Tomorrow night will feature the San Diego Chargers traveling to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. The weather will be a factor in this one as well. The temperature is supposed to be 24 degrees with 9 mph winds and a 10 percent chance of snow. I dont see anyway that the Chargers survive this game. I am calling the Steelers 21-10.
If my predictions hold true we will have the 1 vs 2 seed in both conferences which will set up nicely. Enjoy the games on this cold,snowy day here in New Jersey. Go Big Blue
