My takes on the Saturday games are here.
Sunday's games are as follows:
NY Giants 24 - TB Buccaneers 14
I only watched a little of the Tampa Bay-NY Giants matchup this afternoon. What I did see was all Giants. I did hear one of the Bucs' scoring drives on the radio, in the car.
What I was able to gather is, the Giants were too strong for their overrated opponents. TB wouldn't even be in the playoffs if it wasn't for the fact that they play in one of the sorriest divisions in the NFL. This doesn't take into account that the Bucs are horrible at home and the Giants are one of the best road teams in the league.
No surprise here.
Next week, the Giants will need to face the Cowboys for a third time. Most football fans can tell you, it's very difficult to beat a team three times in one season.
SD Chargers 17 - Tennessee Titans 6
You have to hand it to Tennessee's defense, they really did a number on the run in this one. LT could not get into a rhythm to save his life. The one thing that really helped the Titans in this game was the coach. Jeff Fisher gets the most out of his players, even when they are out-gunned on paper.
The Titans shut the Chargers out 6-0, in the first half. The game was not decided until late. But down the stretch, the Chargers were just too strong for them. They will not have that luxury next week, when they face the Colts in Indy.
Prediction on tonight's BCS Championship:
LSU plays in the best conference in college football, they are used to big games. Ohio State plays in the Big Ten, not exactly the same caliber of opposition as the SEC. LSU should win this game, but I do not expect OSU to hand it to them. It could be close and go down to the wire. They will have to earn it.
