Lets Get Some Playoffs Going

This coming weekend is the Wildcard weekend with the Chiefs-Texans and Steelers-Bengals playing on Saturday and Seahawks-Vikings and Packers-Redskins on Sunday. Currently the odds are against the home teams in all four games.

The game that interests me is my Seahawks visiting the Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Currently the weather forecast is 0 degrees at kickoff with a projected wind-chill factor of -15 degrees making it one of the Top 10 coldest games.

Seattle is a cold weather location but not a frigid weather location like Minneapolis. I spent half my life in Seattle and only saw single digit temps a handful of times during snow and ice storms so unless Pete Carrol has the team practicing in a meat locker this looks to be an advantage for the Vikings.

Like every season I am very superstitious so I will not be saying anything about the Seahawks until the end of the season outside of my Sports Cards Super Bowl prediction if they make it that far.

  1. The football gods were looking down on the Seahawks (and their fans) today and blessed us. One step down. Go Hawks!
