As someone who lives and dies with the Seahawks I have to say that I don't have a great feeling about this week's game. I guess I'm just not used to watching them win on the east coast, especially when the game starts at 10:00am PST. As a matter of fact, the only west coast team in history who won two straight games on the east coast in the playoff were the '89 LA Rams. What I'm hoping for is that the Falcons put way too much pressure on themselves, which could happen. However it turns out I have to admit that watching Russel Wilson this year has been the best. Not that I think he's the best QB in the league but I wouldn't trade him for anybody.
Also, I see that most everyone is picking the Broncos - and for good reason. But let me throw this out there; Peyton Manning is 0-3 in cold weather playoff games (which, of course were on the road) but the startling part is this... 1 TD vs. 7 INT's... that's pretty bad! If I were forced to put money on the game I'd pick the Bronco's too, but I won't be as shocked by a Ravens win as a lot of people will be.
