UPDATE #2: The Divisional weekend is in the books and more shocks continue to shake up the playoffs. 

CHI did what we expected them to do to an inferior SEA team.  The final score doesn't reflect what happened in that game, but I'm sure it gave a lot of people a scare as they almost got the back door cover.  The big upset of the day came from the NYJ/NE rivalry as NY punched them in the mouth early and often and NE never knew how to respond.  We lose the teaser as a result, but it was still a winning week as we head into championship weekend.

I should have picks up later tonight or early tomorrow depending on the opening lines. 

UPDATE: After getting hurt by a couple of the shocks in Wild Card weekend things got back on track as it was a clean sweep against the spread this week.

BAL had a great first half after capitalizing on some PIT mistakes, but in the end Joe Flacco played like the fraud I thought he was.  Home field and fresher legs took over the game in the second half and clinched the win. 

Matty "Ice" and the rest of ATL proved that they aren't quite ready for prime time.  The warning signs were there when they couldn't close out of the division against NO in week 16.  Rodgers played out of his mind and GB followed the same game plan as they used earlier in the season against ATL - spread the field and pick them apart. 

Looking ahead to tomorrow, we just need NE to win by a field goal to cash the other side of the teaser and I will be adding CHI/NE in a 7 point tease if the public push the SEA/CHI line to -9.5 or lower.
