|Rex Ryan will need to keep his head if his Jets are to step forward and get past another arch-rival.|
I continue to stink it up as a predictor of football games. But I will press on. Here are my picks for the NFL conference championship playoffs:
- New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers: Jets 16, Steelers 24. I saw the Steelers winning last week, but who would have imagined the Footie besting the Hoodie? Now, my gut tells me the Steelers will get this one, but in a dogfight. I won't be surprised if Jets special teams help make the difference in their getting to the Super Bowl.
- Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears: Packers 30, Bears 10. The Packers will beat down the Bears. I have no doubt.
So, yes, I predict a Steelers-Packers Super Bowl. Place your bets!
