The NFL playoffs are upon us, so now it is incumbent upon me to bestow upon you JOHNNY B'S FEARLESS NFL PLAYOFF PICKS!
Last week's regular season finale: 10-6. My final 2005 regular season record: 155-86 (+/- 1 game), .643.
I start with a clean slate for the playoffs. Here goes:
TAMPA BAY over Washington. I know, the Skinnies have been hot, but they feel like a team which is a year away.
NEW ENGLAND over Jacksonville. I just can't see the better than you think Jag-wires going up there and beating Belichick.
CAROLINA over the NY Giants. Sorry, Roger, but the learning curve of Eli Manning gets a little steeper now that he's in the playoffs. He'll be back, though.
PITTSBURGH over Cincinnati. I like Cincy, I really do, but the last couple of weeks have been dismaying.
