For all of you who were either concerned about or upset with my decision to pick the Patriots to win tomorrow's game at Gillette Stadium, I have some good news. I was absolutely certain the Cincinnati Bengals would handle the New York Jets today, and I'm now 0-1 in my Wild Card picks.
Hey, if I could pick football games, I'd be in Vegas lying next to one of those fancy swimming pools on The Strip letting supermodels feed me fresh fruit. So, maybe I'm on a reverse role and the Ravens will have no trouble with Tom Brady and the Pats.
Congrats to Rex Ryan, who tried to tell everyone how good his team was, and Mark Sanchez, who played a near-perfect game to knock the AFC North champions out of the playoffs. I feel bad for Marvin Lewis, but both Rex and Marvin are good guys and one of them was going to be disappointed.
