Behind enemy lines on wild card weekend.

Yo, this is Nicky, and we’re coming off a victory in the Rose Bowl and we also played a round robin for the first and hit that as well as the over was done by the end of the first half. Now it’s winning time in the NFL as Wild Card Weekend is upon us. In the early game I love the Bengals (+4.5 buy the hook) as this is not a battle of backup quarterbacks as Dalton has a full season under his belt as the main man and Yates will get a rude introduction to playoff football. Andre Johnson is back but not 100% and the Texans will be forced to get it on the ground against a good Bengal defense.

In the second game, call me crazy but I am going to take the huge lumber (11.5) and the Lions. That Saint defense has now been notorious for giving up huge yards, and points, and it’s not because they’re always winning by a lot, they just have some serious holes (258 pass, 108 rush). I know Detroit gives up a ton as well but back in the confines of a dome stadium the Lions will score enough to keep this close and dare I say, win it on the field. That’s a wild cup o’chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
