OT-NFL Playoffs, who wins next week?

So who wins in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs? I myself like Indy to beat the Ravens and San Diego to beat the Jets in the AFC. In the NFC I like the Cowboys to beat the Vikings and The Cardinals to beat the Saints. IMO Dallas wins it all, but what do I know.

I have the Cowboys over the Vikings and the Saints over the Cards in the NFC. In the AFC I have the Chargers over the Jets and the Ravens over the Colts. I will admit that I'm biased as a Ravens fan, and I always want to get some revenge on the Colts.

Looking at the lines..

Arizona +7 over the Saints. Didn't it go like this last year? The only thing that scares me is the only true home field advantage is in New Orleans. If Warner plays like he did today - this is a lock. The NO defense, IMO is overrated and not as good as GB's.

Baltimore +6.5 over Indy. How is Indy that much better than New England this year? They have Peyton Manning and nothing much else. This seems like a no brainer.

Minny -2.5 over Dallas. This one will come down to who sucks less - Childress or Wade. I think Minny protects Favre and they win this game. I think this game looks a lot like the two AFC games above, whereby the home team had a great record but struggled down the stretch. And the teams they are playing now are hot and talented but their record wasn't as good. So how is Dallas only getting 2.5 but the others are around 7? Does not make sense to me, at all.

San Diego -8 over NYJ. The Chargers are good at home, and the Jets have a rookie QB. Phillip Rivers might be the most underrated QB in the NFL and had a great year after beating Manning in the playoffs last year. Sproles and LDT are almost as good as Benson this year so the running game should flourish. And god knows the combo of Rivers/Gates/Jackson is better than Palmer/Ochocinco.

I think most of these games look to be toss-ups, with a possible exception for the San Diego-New York game. But I'll have a go:

Chargers over Jets
Colts over Ravens

Cowboys over Vikings
Saints over Cardinals

This should be a great NFL weekend. Most of these games feature teams that have been really hot as of late against teams who have been getting it done all year, but have cooled down a bit lately, largely due to resting key players.
