    Don't get me wrong... I think Minnesota will lose the following week... but I'm not going to be surprised at all to see them win this week.

    The "can't beat Green Bay at home in the playoffs or cold" legend was broken several years ago... and Minnesota is built to win in that environment anyway, with their 1-man wrecking crew Peterson.

    Minnesota is by no means a great team... but he has ran for 200 yards against Green Bay in both games this season... unless Green Bay fixes something they haven't been able to fix all year in one week, I expect more of the same.

    Stewart, Green Bay has all their injured regulars back. That's not good for Minnesota.

    While I don't really follow either of those teams...yes...that should be a good one. I'll be rooting for the Redskins, as the Seahawks are only in the playoffs because of the historically bad replacement ref calls early in the season.

    Let us be fair... When they played the first game this year, Packers won 23-14... prior to that game the team records were:

    Packers 7-4
    Vikings 6-5

    Had the Vikings won that close game at the time... they would have had identical 7-5 records... Ponder had an arguably bad game and Minnesota was missing injured players too in that game.

    I like the Packers... and I'll root for them... but honestly, I'm picking Minnesota to win the re-rematch just as they did this week.

    Me too. Could possibly be the best game of the entire playoffs, but definitely the best of this weekend. I'm torn.

    I like RGIII, but don't like coach Shanahan... I like Russel Wilson, but don't like coach Carrol...

    My gut says RGIII is the better QB, but that Seattle has the better rest-of-team.

    Are you sure?

    I don't mean about the game error... 100% right on that one... Seattle should have lost that game... but then they would be 10-6 instead of 11-5.

    Wouldn't Seattle still be in the playoffs at 10-6? Or would they have lost the tie-breaker with Chicago as a result? That's something I have not dug into.

    I believe Chicago would have gotten in instead...so in that context, go Seattle. :D

    I hope the 'Skins do to the Seahawks what they did to the Niners two weeks ago. Then we'll see how Kaepernick and RG fare on the same field. I'm also not at all a fan of Pete Carroll—nor Shanahan for that matter.

    Ha! Vikings are toast. Ponder ruled inactive for today's game.

    (Not that that would've mattered. Green Bay would have beaten them anyway.)

    Nothing would please me more than to see the Packers getting beat, but I don't think they will.

    Looks like you're going to be disappointed.

    Then again, some of us will be quite pleased with a Packers win.

    Packers ain't going anywhere. They will probably win today, but they're not good enough to win the Super Bowl.

    The good guys won.

    Bring on the 49ers. If they win that game somehow (and it will be very tough - SF is a great team), then they're the NFC favorites at that point.

    Last time these circumstances were in place (players coming back from injuries for the playoffs)...the hoisted the Lombardi.

    The Saints got the season they deserved (well 0-16 would have been better), the Colts performed far better than expected, and Peyton Manning excelled. I'm happy no matter how this ends.

    But the biggest step comes right after CES! If they win that, I will be rooting for them. Until, then...... watch out for the Smith Brothers.

    This year has been really hard to predict... teams show up one weekend and are flat the next.

    By all rights, Atlanta could either be flat and get steamrolled next weekend OR they will go lights-out and be a Superbowl shoe-in from the NFC.

    It's just tough to pick.
