These will be tougher. The AFC games match up good defenses with powerhouse offenses and the NFC games are likely to be total shootouts. That said:

AFC

Colts over Ravens
Chargers over Jets

NFC

Saints over Cardinals (YEAH!)
Vikings over Cowboys

OK, rally time...

Colts over Ravens
Chargers over Jets

Saints over Cardinals
Vikings over Cowboys


I really didn't mean to copy your picks Orpheus... :)

I almost took the Ravens over the Colts as my "Upset Special" but I couldn't do it.

Argh.
Ok, just to be different I'm going to go

Colts over Ravens
Jets over Chargers -- but I don't believe the Jets will win.

Vikings over Cowboys
Saints over Cardinals

Playing the upset game, I fully believe that it's possible for Baltimore to beat Indy. I don't think it will happen, but I wouldn't be completely shocked if it did. I'll stick with Indy taking the win, though.

I genuinely believe these picks, so it is not a grab for points. I actually feel more confident this week, so we'll see what happens ...

AFC
Ravens over Colts
Chargers over Jets

NFC
Cardinals over Saints
Cowboys over Vikings

Honestly, these might not be bad picks. Momentum is everything in the NFL and the Colts, Saints and Vikings all had their momentum broke during the last few weeks of the regular season. The bye week may not have helped.

Exactly my thinking re: momentum. The Colts, Saints, and Vikings are cold as ice. I'm doubtful that all 3 will lose, but I'm fairly confident that 2 out of the 3 will.

Cards have a perfect recipe for disappointment. Big time OT win, short week, have to travel to very hostile dome, no defense....It may be a shootout, but there's a lot working against them.
