NFL Teams Heading to the Superbowl

by dmcsorley on January 21, 2013

What a great Sunday of football games. The Atlanta vs San Francisco game was just as good as I thought it was going to be. The New England vs Baltimore game wasn’t as close as I thought it was going to be but it was still a great game. Congrats to the 49ers and Ravens for heading to the Superbowl.

NFL AFC and NFC Title games this weekend…

by dmcsorley on January 17, 2013

Hey all! I’m sure that you can tell… I’m pumped for the games this weekend. I can’t wait. Here’s a video of some of my picks as well as some of my keys to what each team needs to do to win the NFL Divisional games this weekend.

NFL Divisional Championship!

by dmcsorley on January 16, 2013

First off, as you know I went 0 – 4 last weekend. I’m not sure I should even choose teams this weekend but I will!! :)

The first game is the NFC Divisional Game between the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons – It’s #1 vs #2!!! I think this game will be close but honestly it could go either way as far as a close game or blow out. I think both teams have that in them. San Francisco has a better defense but they have a really good offense now as well. The biggest question, can Atlanta get to Colin Kaepernick this weekend? He made the Green Bay defense look silly. If he has near or over 100 yards rushing then that answer is no, Atlanta couldn’t stop him and they win the game. I look for Atlanta to pound the ball with their backs like they did against Seattle and air it out when needed. They looked great in the first half against the Seahawks but came back down to earth in the second half until Matt Ryan was able to drive them down the field for the winning field goal. If that happens again in the second half, they’re in trouble. I look for the home field to play a factor in this game. Like I said before, this game could go either way. I like both teams. I’d like to see San Francisco in the SuperBowl but I think I’m going to go with Atlanta by 3 in this game. If Atlanta figures out Kaepernick and can stop him, then I think Atlanta will win but if not the 49ers will win. It should be a great game and I’m excited for this one.

The second game of the day is between the New England Patriots and the team not many people including me thought would be in the AFC Championship, the Baltimore Ravens. We all know New England will be ready for this game! They’ve had great success playing at home in the AFC Championship and many experts are picking them to win the game. They have a solid defense now and we all know Tom Brady can throw the ball. If Baltimore can get in Brady’s face, then I think it will be a tough day for the Pats. I respect the Pats for all that they’ve done in the last 8 to 10 years but I’d love to see a new team in the Superbowl. Yes, I know as a Steelers fan, I really don’t like both teams. But I know both of these teams especially the Ravens since the Steelers played them twice this year. We saw the Ravens struggle at one point of their season going 1 and 3. The answer? They fired their offense coach and promoted Jim Caldwell. It took a few weeks but their offense looks better. Great at some points, ok at other points. Joe Flacco had a great game against a questionable Denver’s secondary. Yes, the Broncos should have won. If Denver didn’t give up the TD with 30 secs left, they could have won that game. But I truly believe everything happens for a reason. This Ravens team is different since Ray Lewis announced he’s retiring! They love the underdog mentality … this team will be fired up! No doubt about it. New England has a great run defense but struggles to stop the pass. The Ravens will need Ray Rice to win this game… if he’s involved in the game then I see the Ravens winning this game. But if New England can stop Ray Rice both in the running and passing game, it could be a long game for Joe Flacco and company. This game should be great. I’m super excited for both games this coming weekend. Who do I pick in the AFC title game… I’m going with the Ravens by a point. They want revenge for last year and they actually have a good kicker that can kick the ball for them. I say the Baltimore Ravens by 1.

What’s your take on the games this weekend? Do you agree or disagree?

Syracuse vs Louisville on Saturday

by dmcsorley on January 15, 2013

Hey all! Since we don’t have any NFL games this Saturday, I thought I would talk about the big basketball matchup in college this coming Saturday at 4PM – # 6 Syracuse Orange at the #1 Louisville Cardinals. It’s a huge matchup and it should be a great game. Louisville had trouble last night against UConn. This is a huge test for Syracuse and can’t wait to watch this game.

Here’s my video on the game:

NFL Divisional Results

by dmcsorley on January 14, 2013

Well it was another great NFL weekend. This time it was the right to play in the Divisional Championship in the AFC and NFC next weekend. I went 0-4 on all my choices. I don’t call myself an expert and I think after these results I’ll keep my day job. But I thought it would be fun to choose Green Bay, Houston and Seattle. I’m not sure if many people would have picked the Ravens over Denver, the way the Broncos have been playing as of late. But like the experts say, “That’s why they play the game” and anything really can happen in the playoffs. Congrats to the #Ravens, #Patriots, #49ers, and #Falcons!!!

Here’s my video of the NFL games from this weekend:

NFL Playoffs heading into the weekend!

NFL-Divisional-Playoffs

NFL-Divisional-Playoffs

There is no better time of the year than the NFL Playoffs! We just wrapped up on wildcard games from this past weekend and now we are ready for the NFL divisional games this coming weekend. I thought the Alabama vs Notre Dame football game would get my mind off of the NFL for a day or two, but I was wrong. That game wasn’t even close.

So here’ are the match-ups and game times for this weekend’s NFL games!

Saturday games:
#4 Baltimore Ravens at # 1 Denver Broncos – 4:30PM
#3 Green Bay Packers at #2 San Francisco 49ers – 8PM

Sunday games:
#5 Seattle Seahawks at #1 Atlanta Falcons – 1PM
#3 Houston Texans at #2 New England Patriots – 4:30PM

As I’ve talked about before, heading into the playoffs, I’m looking forward to every game this weekend, just like I was in the wildcard match-ups. Of course since I’m a Steelers fan, I’ll be cheering for the Broncos to take it to the Ravens, but I hope it’s a great game. I’d love to see Tom Brady vs Peyton Manning in the AFC Divisional game. I guess time will tell.

Both NFC games intrigue me. The Saturday night game with Green Bay heading into San Francisco peaks my interest, as I’m sure most of the nation will be watching. San Francisco has struggled a bit heading into the playoffs and I’m wondering how they will do against a hot Green Bay team. Green Bay is finally healthy on defense, but they have some key injuries on offense – the biggest one being TE Jermichael Finley. However, Head Coach Mike McCarthy says he will be fine for the game. He said the Packers are all banged up after playing two physical games against the Vikings. Now they head into San Francisco to play another very physical team. I can’t wait for this game. I’m hoping it will be a very close, but high scoring game.

The second NFC game is between the team nobody wants to play, the Seattle Seahawks against the Atlanta Falcons. The Seahawks are a hot team and Atlanta has been struggling as of late. I have been impressed with how Seattle is playing and this is another game that I’m excited for. I’d love to see Seattle win this game and the way they’ve been playing, I wouldn’t be shocked if they do. I’m picking Seattle to beat Atlanta in this upset alert.

In the other AFC game, I’ll be curious to see how the Houston Texans match-up against the Patroits. Last time they played, New England crushed the Texans. Will this game be closer? We can only hope. Houston looked like a really tough team a few weeks ago, but then started to struggle towards the end of the season. They just beat Cincinnati last weekend and I’ll be curious to see how they do against a much tougher offense and a great New England defense.

What NFL divisional games are you most excited about heading into this weekend?
