Championship Predictions

It's championship week! Just four teams remain in the hunt for the ultimate NFL title. I'm low on time to put some predictions up before the start of the Eagles-Cardinals game, so here's my pick.

Cardinals +3.5 over Eagles
People are totally underestimating Arizona. Throw out some of the games you saw them play late in the season: they are irrelevant. Prepare to see University of Phoenix stadium like you've never seen it before: absolutely rocking. The Eagles are a good football team, but so is Arizona. Maybe I'm a little biased against the Eagles, and maybe I'm ignoring the lack of success home teams have had so far, but give me Kurt Warner at home over Donovan McNabb. And I'll take the points.

Cardinals 27, Eagles 20

Update (5:55 PM)

Now for the late game...

Ravens +6 over Steelers
All week I've wondered how in the world the Ravens are getting six points against the Steelers. Does anyone understand how these two teams play? This will be yet another slugfest, and points will be hard to come by. And I really wanted to pick Pittsburgh in this game. Rex Ryan would be free to be a Jet. I tried to convince myself that Baltimore would be tired after 18 straight weeks of playing their style of football. I tried to look at injuries to various Ravens as a reason to pick a Pittsburgh blowout. But I can't bet against that Baltimore defense getting six points. I just can't.

Steelers 13, Ravens 9
