Well we might as well start this early.  It's a poll so you got all week to think about it.  Also since this only allows 5 questions -- you'll have to write in the winner for the Bills/Patriots.

I'm picking the Bills over the Patriots.  Sadly I think I picked all the favorites.  So I'll call my upset special.  SF over Dallas though I don't think it's going to happen.

What does thinking have to do with it?

Whether you want to post in here and risk grandiosity vs heckling.

I had trouble with the Raiders/Bengals matchup. Conflicted with wanting to see the Bengals lose and the reality of the chances of a Raider victory. Then I asked myself, when was the last time that Cincinnati won a first round playoff game?

I did too.  I also think the Patriots/Bills game is going to be very close.  Rooting for the 49ers but that's a solid Dallas team.

My guess is the Niners blew their wad vs the Rams.

Unfortunately Josh Allen’s style is more suited to a dome. His fastballs are harder to catch in cold weather. Next Saturday is looking cold but dry so far. I think we’ll win, but Belichic is a master.

So, in the beginning of the year, I said Miami would make the playoffs, then they go 1-7 to start the year and I talk about" How could I be so wrong?  I suck at prognosticating!".  Then they finish with a flourish (9-8) even though the starting QB can't break a throw past 12 yards to save his life, through what seems like really solid coaching.  Then they fire the coach.  :wacko:

I think this is a better Bengals team than they’ve had since Ickey Woods.

I’ll never bet against the Patriots. I haven’t watched any of their games, but know the Steelers beat the Bills this year, and the Steelers are a mediocre team at best.

And we all know once you blow your load, it’s over.

It’s a toss up but I think the Bills are finding their stride.

Yeah I’m not betting.

Thank god for spellcheck. It's a tricky work to get correct.

In normal weather.  It's dry here, so not much up in there today. My loss.  :angry:

Just going to have to settle on Cap’n Crunch instead of oatmeal.

So nobody is picking the Steelers?

The Steelers have little hope in this one.  They stand a tiny chance if they get an early lead and can run the ball, but I don't see them being able to even be in the same stadium if the Chiefs get an early lead.

I give the Steelers maybe a 2-3% shot at winning this game, with maybe a 5% chance of even being in the game at any point in the 4th quarter.

100%

It seems like Tampa and Kansas City have the majority this weekend.  The rest of the games are pretty close.  Again, how do you feel about New England and Buffalo?

 

I'm taking Buffalo but it's not a gimme.

Neither am I. I just don’t want to root for a team just to have the Patriots yank that enjoyment away. So I’ll assume the Pats will win, and then be happily surprised if not. 

Everybody's winner for Saturday's second game... except -- ahem -- @Square Wheels.  But the biggest winner is @BuffJim!  I wonder if he's going to be hungover today.

Does Seattle have a kindergarten team?

I can tell you we swept the 49ers and beat the Cardinals. So if Dallas loses I have bragging rights over Dallas. 🤣

My summary of the game:

Weather was blooming freezing.
Bills only got the ball 4 times in the first half.
After the Bills first drive in the 2nd half I basically gave up on thinking the game was going to have a big come back from behind.
The Bills kicker was pretty rubbish in the game.
The Defense allowed NE to get too many breakaways and TD's.
It got to the point where the Bills even took Allen off in the 4th Q.

Outcome of Steelers Chiefs matters a lot to me. Steelers win, they come to Buffalo next weekend. Chiefs win, we go to KC. I think the Chiefs are better, but either team could win. 

No.  <slap> No Eagles. <slap>  No Steelers. <slap> You're going to KC.  Put the Cool-Aid down and drink this:
