moder8 and I can claim perfect scores for the first round --all zeros that is. It means absolutely nothing, but it looks nice. Maybe we could keep it going this week, but I will not be trying to do so.

Chiefs are a juggernaut on offense and nearly nonexistent on defense. Colts have an excellent offense and a fairly steady defense. Errors will determine the outcome here. Indianapolis by 7

Cowboys finally hit their potential in the latter half of the season, but they now run into what most consider the cream of the crop. Cowboys might keep it close, but Rams will prevail. Los Angeles (National Conference) by 13 LOCK

Forget about mobile quarterbacks, RPOs, and all the rest. This is a battle between a pair of pocket passers each of whom has an impressive arsenal of weapons. On paper, Chargers look to be the better team, but they have had to travel coast to coast twice, it looks to be pretty damn cold in Foxborough on Sunday, and Patriots are very familiar with the Chargers' defensive concepts and how to attack them. Overtime in this one would not surprise me. New England by 3

Eagles supposedly have been on life support for most of this season, but here they are in the divisional round. How many points have us SpoFites lost betting against them? The pundits keep coming up with reasons that they have a chance against the Saints. As my ex wife used to say, "Not happen, mistah". New Orleans by 16 LOCK

Now for the propositions.

Passing yards: Goff, Los Angeles Rams

Rushing yards: Michel, New England

Receiving yards: Hilton, Indianapolis

Interception: Mahomes, Kansas City

Most points: Indianapolis

Some evil being has crept into my laptop and has caused the phrase 'New England' to become a link to advertising. I have looked to see if there is anything obvious running in the background, or if anything strange pops up on task manager, but my computer expertise is far from adequate. Unless you want to see ads, please do not click on those links. In the meantime, McAfee will be put to work.
