FWIW....I just got my copy of SI for 1/9/12 that will hit stands on Monday and PK has his playoff chart up....
He has us BEATING Cincy 19-17 moving on to LOSE to the Ravens 27-10 the following week.
As it stands now, I agree with this. I just have an ultra positive feeling going into this game (not saying it is in the bag.....but as a life long pessimist, this team has me optimistic right now against the Bengals at home..) and then losing probably on the raod in BAL.
For those interested, cliff notes version of the rest of his prediction....
Pats vs Saints in the SB and Saints win 34-24.
Into black waves I am sinking,Drowning away from the ghosts,Disappearing into eternity,Into the mirror of my soul,The pounding sound is mesmerizing
