Ravens roll Colts, Seahawaks shut down Skins

The Colts ran up over 400 yards of offense, but could only mange three field goals in Baltimore. The Ravens now head to Denver to play the Broncos

 

The Baltimore Ravens want one long final ride for Ray Lewis. Having disposed of Andrew Luck and the Colts, they now face a more imposing challenge.

Next up, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Anquan Boldin set a franchise record with 145 yards receiving, including the clinching touchdown in the Ravens’ 24-9 victory Sunday over Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game. The win delays star linebacker Lewis’ retirement for at least another week as Baltimore (11-6) heads to top-seeded Denver (13-3) next Saturday.

Can the Ravens D stand up against Peyton’s offense?

Seahawks too much for Skins, ailing RG3

The Seattle Seahawks finally won a road playoff game Sunday, taking a 24-14 NFC wild-card victory over the Washington Redskins, who lost Robert Griffin III to another knee injury in the fourth quarter.

Marshawn Lynch ran for 131 yards, and Russell Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards and ran eight times for 67 yards for the Seahawks, who broke an eight-game postseason losing streak away from home.

Seattle will visit the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.

Lynch’s 27-yard run with 7:08 remaining gave the Seahawks (12-5) the lead. On Washington’s next series, Griffin reinjured the right knee he sprained about a month ago while trying to field a bad shotgun snap.

The knee buckled badly, and the Seahawks recovered the fumble and kicked an insurance field goal

Can the Atlanta Falcons stop red hot Seattle next week?

Oh yes, the NFL Playoffs DO start today

And here are my picks for the opening weekend

The slumping Texans will edge the Bengals in a close game. 

The Pack will nip the Vikings

The Colts will go back to Baltimore and defeat the Ravens in Ray Lewis’s last game. And that means we NEVER have to watch that moronic pre-game dance Lewis does! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Finally, the Seahawks go to DC and knock off the Skins
