Wild Card Weekend Recap

This was the first week of the Playoffs, and it certainly was WILD. 

Andrew Luck and the Colts came back from a 28-point second half deficit, Shayne Graham nailed a game-winning Field Goal to lift the Saints over the Eagles in Philadelphia, and that was just the FIRST DAY. 

You got everything you could've wanted: a high-scoring shootout [Kansas City 44 Indianapolis 45,] a big upset [San Diego 27 Cincinnati 10,] and TWO yes TWO game-winning kicks as time expired [San Francisco 23 Green Bay 20, New Orleans 26, Philadelphia 24.] 

It was a great week to be a Chargers fan, or Colts fan, or Saints fan, or 49ers fan, or just a FOOTBALL FAN.

 It was a  TERRIBLE week for Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton whose highly-favored Bengals lost 27-10 to San Diego in a game they should have won. [I was one of the few people who predicted a San Diego upset.]

 All in all, I was 3-1 on picks with the lone mistake being that I put too much faith in Nick Foles and the Eagles and not enough in Sean Payton and the Saints.
