Wildcard Weekend - Sunday Games Open Thread

The second day of Wild Card Weekend begins at 1PM EST today; there's nothing more we can do save putting my prediction curse to yet another test.  Here we go...

Bal_medium   Mia_medium
Baltimore Ravens (11-5) at Miami Dolphins (11-5)
1:00 PM EST, CBS
Ravens coverage: Baltimore Beatdown
Dolphins coverage: The Phinsider

I don't really like either of these teams, but my dislike of the Dolphins trumps my annoyance with the Ravens, especially since Brian Billick was shown the door.  I will say this, both of these teams proved that you can succeed immediately after making a coaching change.  That should make us Broncos fans feel good.  In a twist of irony, it was the Ravens that gave the Dolphins their only win of 2007.  Now the two teams are playing for the right to move on in the 2008 NFL Playoffs. I'd usually take the home team in these situations, but I hate the Dolphins....

Prediction: RAVENS 17, DOLPHINS 9

Phi_medium   Min_medium
Philadelphia Eagles (9-6-1) at Minnesota Vikings (10-6)
4:30 PM EST, FOX
Eagles coverage: Bleeding Green Nation
Vikings coverage: Daily Norseman

Can Brad Childress, who has done everything possible to sabotage the Vikings this season, really out-coach his mentor Andy Reid in a playoff game?  Can Tarvaris Jackson really beat Donovan McNabb?  Can the good fortune the Eagles received the final week of the regular season really just lead to a one and done?  No way.  I'll take the Eagles to win on the road.

Prediction: Eagles 21 - Vikings 17
