I've been pouring candle wax on my nipples all day today in anticipation of tomorrow's Colts/Pats showdown. I even played the matchup on Madden to see how that played out. Basically, I think Manning and Brady combined for 7 interceptions, and the Patriots won like 24-7 or something like that. Madden is a horrible game. But if Manning and Brady come out and are throwing interceptions all over the place tomorrow I will bow down and kiss its balls.
For what it's worth, I think the Patriots will win, but I can also see Joseph Addai running for 200 yards against them and exposing the fact that it's possible to keep the ball away from their offense, and the Colts winning.
Here are some of my other favorite games that are being played tomorrow:
SEAHAWKS AT BROWNS
An intriguing matchup of the young up and coming Browns against the aging, wobbling but still standing Seahawks. The Browns have been one of the most exciting teams in the league this year, and have been just about unbeatable at home. I say the Browns go over big in this one.
BRONCOS AT LIONS
It's win or else for the Broncos, who are 3-4 and in possession of a horrible defense. That's not a good thing to be in possession of if you're hoping to win in Ford Field these days. The Lions win and go to 6-2. How insane is that?
PACKERS AT CHIEFS
Winning back to back weeks at Mile High and Arrowhead is a lot to ask, but that's what the 6-1 Pack will be trying to do tomorrow. This one could go either way, but I think the ghost of the recently deceased Max McGee intervenes to give the Pack the win in this Super Bowl I rematch.
JAGUARS AT SAINTS
The Jags gutted one out on the road last week against the Bucs. The Saints look like they've been running windsprints on the beach with Apollo Creed and regained the eye of the tiger though. I see them getting back to .500 with a win tomorrow.
CARDINALS AT BUCS
Tampa got off to a strong start, but they've lost of 3 of 4, and they need a win over the wacky Arizona Cardinals and their multiple quarterback offense if they are to avoid falling below .500 and into the NFC quagmire. Arizona, believe it or not, can be tied for first in the NFC West on Monday morning if they win this one.
PANTHERS AT TITANS
Much like the Bucs, the Panthers look like another team that got off to a fast start but is going to backslide into oblivion. The slide continues tomorrow.
COWBOYS AT EAGLES
This is the Sunday Night game, returning this week after we spent last Sunday night slapping our TVs like baboons wondering why there was no football on it. This game serves up a healthy dose of irony, as T.O. has been a choir boy, and Andy Reid is running a drug emporium. Dallas wins and Donovan McNabb's vazhin continues to ache.
