First off let me say that I appreciate the players that get in there and put themselves on the line to help win a game, but what about the fans? Less than a week after Hernia Surgery (yeah, just take a second to think about that), I will be upping the dose of pain killers (Drugs are good... MMMMkay) to make sure I don’t miss a second of the Seahawks vs. Redskins tilt on Saturday.
I've had nothing better to do this week other than lay in bed and recover (Thank God for the Food Network and ESPN, oh yeah, and don’t forget TiVo) so I have heard every analysts pick for every game this weekend.
But enough about me, let’s talk about some football. Let's get the obvious game out of the way first.
NFC West Champion Seattle Seahawks vs. NFC Wildcard #1 Washington Redskins
Could this be the season us Seattle fans have waited for? Could the Hawks really win a playoff game? OF COURSE THEY WILL!!! Seattle will win this game easily if the Washington offense looks like the team that showed up in Tampa last week. They tried to lose that game, but the Buccaneers wanted to lose even more.
Seattle has caught all the breaks this year as opposed to years past where they went to the other team. This year when we needed a break, we got it. Thanks, Mr. Feely.
However, the one team we didn’t get a break against was the Washington Redskins, who beat the Hawks back in Week 4 only because Josh Brown doinked a 47-yard field goal as time expired. In overtime, Washington got the ball drove down the field and kicked a field goal to win the game without the Seahawks ever touching the ball. I don’t think this game will come down to a last-second field goal though. Seattle wins 27-16.
AFC East Champion New England vs. AFC West Champion Denver Broncos
This game really could go either way. I personally have reasons I would like to see both teams advance in this game. I really want to see the winner of this game in the Super Bowl.
My late Grandfather (We’ll miss you, Grandpa) is a huge Broncos fan and I know he would love to see his Broncos get to another Super Bowl. On the other hand, I would also love to rub it into all of my friends and family in Utah (most of which are Broncos fans for some reason) if the Seahawks play the Broncos in the Super Bowl.
As far as New England goes, how can you not root for this team? It seems every year there is some reason why they shouldn’t play well and yet they seem to find a way to win. I think New England has the edge in this game, but this should be the tightest and the most exciting game of the weekend. I pick New England to win, 24-23.
I will cover the other two games of the weekend later. The Percocet is kicking in and I’m beginning to see two screens. Go Hawks!!!
I am 35 years old. Have been on Percocet for 7 days now. It did help the pain but the side effects weren't worth it. I'd rather have the pain.
I have experienced some of these side effects-
nausea, very itchy, racing heart, anxiety, flashing lights(almost hallucinogenic?), weird dreams, tiredness
I hope this information will be useful to others,
