Ok so I am one for two so far. Arizona somehow beat Atlanta. Go figure! See, always bet on the cute boys!

And I was really close on the second game with Indianapolis and San Diego! Really, who thought the Colts would just lay down in OT and let the Chargers, um, charge all over them?

Falcons/Cardinals aka the Birdfight, at least in my mind.

“Kurt Warner was 19-of-32 for 271 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. It was Warner’s eighth career playoff game overall and his fifth throwing for at least two scores. Matt Ryan was 26-of-40 for 199 yards, two scores and two picks. His 26 completions, 40 attempts and 199 pass yards were the most by a rookie signal caller in his postseason debut since the merger.”

Um. Ok. No idea what that means but yay! Go Kurt and Matt!

Final Score: Arizona 30 Atlanta 24

My Fun and Totally Weird Football Fact of the Game: “It was a nice day outside but the Cardinals kept the roof closed at University of Phoenix Stadium. The stadium is far louder with the roof closed” From ESPN’s game notes. Seriously? That’s a game note? Well, it was mild here today too. A bit overcast though. I had to turn the a/c on. Really pisses off my family in New York.

Darren Sproles' game winning touchdown in OT

The game went into overtime and the Colts just, I don’t know, fell asleep. It was a close game throughout and the last 2 minutes of regulation were exciting enough for me to actually give it my full attention. And then overtime was a blowout. The Colts’ defense  gave the Chargers three first downs based on penalties. What does that mean? Well I’m not entirely sure but I know it’s not good! The Colts basically threw it away.

San Diego’s place in the next round was secured when their running back Darren Sproles broke out of the pack and sprinted the 22-yards for the game winning touchdown, early in OT. And in NFL playoffs, the first team to score in OT wins regardless of how much time is left in the quarter.

Sproles finished with 105 rush yards, 45 receiving yards, 106 kick return yards and 72 punt return yards. (Grand total: 328 yards). Gosh that made me sound smart!

The Chargers rolled on to stop the Colts in the playoffs for the second year in a row.

Final Score: Chargers 23 Colts 17

My Fun and Totally Weird Football Fact of the Games: Defensive players are not allowed to “hold” an offensive player until the football is in the air. Because the holding rule wasn’t dumb enough to begin with. You can tackle the guy but ya can’t hug him.
