NFL Predictions!

KANSAS CITY AT NEW ENGLAND

New England is the favorite!  Kansas City has won 11 consecutive games with a no-name offense.Besides Jeremy Maclin Kansas City has no stars. This is a tough one to call but I like the KC defense to be the difference.
KANSAS CITY 24 NEW ENGLAND 23

GREEN BAY AT ARIZONA
Arizona has a very good team and the Packers have struggled as of late until last week. The Cardinals beat Green Bay 38-8 in December. The Packers just don't have an offensive line. Closer this time but....
ARIZONA 30 GREEN BAY 17

SEATTLE AT CAROLINA
Wow this should be a great game. Two winners. Marshawn Lynch is back for Seattle and should give them a great chance to win. Russell Wilson is one of the top four quarterbacks in the NFL. Carolina has lost just one game this year and are on a roll.
CAROLINA 31 SEATTLE 28

PITTSBURGH AT DENVER
I would take Pittsburgh any day in this one if they were healthy. They are injured at running back, quarterback, and receiver. And their receiver is the best in the NFL in Antonio Brown. With the injuries I have to go with the Broncos but it should be a great game until the Denver defense scores a couple of TD's.
DENVER 27 PITTSBURGH 20

Not a lottery winner this time!

Ok I didn't win the lottery. I had no chance anyway but what the heck I put a few dollars in our pool at week so I wouldn't be left out.

Did you know?
YOU HAVE A

One in 2 chance to win a coin flip.
One in 10 chance of being left handed
In the US, you have a One in 112 chance of dying in a motor vehicle.
One in 337 chance of winning $7 if you buy one Powerball ticket.
One in 292 million of winning the Powerball when buying one ticket.

Chances of the Nebraska men's basketball team beating Illinois at Illinois on Saturday is 33%.
Prediction is however Nebraska 78 Illinois 76  We are playing good  No reason to stop.

I hated to hear about Lawrence Phillips. I think there was more good than bad with the young man.

Chip Kelly goes to the 49ers. That should be interesting.

Basketball Prediction

Nebraska will end their long streak of losing in the Big 10 today by beating Rutgers 70-66.

NFL playoffs start today!! Arizona and New England are the favorites to go to the Super Bowl in San Fransisco. I like Carolina over Arizona or Seattle. I think both are better.

New England or Cincinnati could be in the Super Bowl although an underdog I like is Pittsburgh. Antonio Brown is amazing.

The Packers are really struggling right now and I don't see Houston being a factor.

KANSAS CITY AT HOUSTON
The winner of this game plays Denver next week. Kansas City is hot and has won 10 straight. I don't see that streak ending this week. Houston has a pretty good defense so there will not be a lot of scoring. 20-23 points should win this one and I think that will be Kansas City. The last time Kansas City won a playoff game they had Marcus Allen in the backfield and Joe Montana at quarterback. That was 22 years ago.  Houston's only chance is getting four turnovers or more. KC 23-20

PITTSBURGH AT CINCINNATI
The winner of this game will play New England next week. I call this almost an even game because Pittsburgh can play some good ball. They have a great passing attack but they are injury riddled at running back. Big Ben, Antonio Brown, and Bryant are very good and Pitt can put up a lot of points. Cincinnati has AJ McCarron at QB. He is playing while Dalton has been hurt and he has played well. Pittsburgh defense win as Cinncy will have a hard time running. Pittburgh 31 Cincinnati 28

SEATTLE at MINNESOTA
The winner of this game plays at Arizona next week. Minnesota plays at home in this one but Seattle is going for its third straight Super Bowl trip. I just see Seattle controlling this game. Seattle 34 Minnesota 17

GREEN BAY AT WASHINGTON
The winner plays Carolina next week. This is probably a game that has the two teams that don't have a chance for the Super Bowl. But this should be a pretty darn good game. The game is in Washington and the Redskins have been been scoring big in the last three games.  I look to this game having a lot of offense. Washington 38 Green Bay  34
