Wild Card Round game predictions

The playoffs are here, and although the first game is already starting, I thought I'd get my four picks up for this weekend's Wild Card action.

Last week's record: 10-6
2010 season record: 168-88 (65.6%)

Saints over Seahawks — It's not easy to go on the road to the West Coast and play in the elements, but the Seahawks are hardly a playoff-caliber team and the Saints, despite being decimated by injuries, are the more talented and potent team.

Colts over Jets — The Jets hardly played like an elite team over the last few months of the season, and I like Peyton Manning to continue carrying his team as he did down the stretch in the regular season.

Ravens over Chiefs — Playing on the road in Kansas City won't be easy, but I expect a big day from the heavy-hearted Ed Reed and a strong stand by the Ravens' defense.

Packers over Eagles — Yet another road team I'm picking this week, I think the Packers' will throw a strong pass rush at Michael Vick and keep the Eagles at bay enough to pick up the win.
