IT'S NFL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME WEEKEND - WE KICK THINGS OFF WITH OUR JIM SEZ AFC & NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PREVIEWS ...

By Jim Hurley:

And then there were (only) four.
    
The National Football League has whittled its playoff field down to just two teams in the AFC (Jets-Colts) and two teams in the NFC (Vikings-Saints) and --  if you've been listening closely to all the "experts" out there -- than a strong case can (and has) been made for all four clubs.
     
You've heard all the chatter:
     
Folks who are weighing in on the AFC Championship Game (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET) have been heard saying the following:
    
"The Jets will run the ball on the Indianapolis defense ..." or
    
"Not even the top-rated Jets defense will be able to handle QB Peyton Manning for a full 60 minutes ..."
    
Meanwhile, the NFC Championship Game (Sunday, 6:40 p.m. ET) has folks claiming:
    
"Minnesota's pass rush is gonna crush Saints' QB Drew Brees ..." or
    
"New Orleans has the most explosive offense in the NFL. Case closed!"
    
Now, tell us you haven't heard all of the above at some point this week in the days leading up to these titanic tilts.
    
The only problem is none of the TV talking heads nor the newspaper writers or not even us internet authors really know what's gonna happen once they kick it off in Indianapolis and New Orleans this Sunday - what, you would have predicted that Cincinnati and San Diego would have gone 0-for-5 in field-goal attempts against the Jets in this year's playoffs or that Saints' RB/PR Reggie Bush would have been the best player on the field last weekend inside the Louisiana Superdome?
    
Heck, who would have believed at the start of this year's NFL post-season that New England QB Tom Brady would have been one-and-done in this "tournament" while New York Jets rookie QB Mark Sanchez would have won his first two playoff games?
    
And what would you have thought if someone told you the Green Bay Packers would score 45 points in their lone playoff game ... and lose;
    
Or that Minnesota and New Orleans each would batter their NFC Divisional Playoff foes by 31 points apiece and the quarterbacks on the other team would be Dallas' Tony Romo and Arizona's Kurt Warner?
    
See what we mean!
    
As we pointed out earlier this week in a prior Jim Sez column, outright upsets have been plentiful in this Championship Game round the past 10 years with nine underdog sides winning outright (that's 9 in 20 NFL Championship Games in all or 45 percent of the time) and with five dog winners in these Championship Games having gone on to cop the Super Bowl that very same year.
    
The 2007 New York Giants, '05 Pittsburgh Steelers, '02 Tampa Bay Bucs, '01 New England Patriots and '00 Baltimore Ravens each entered Conference Championship Weekend as pointspread underdogs - and each of 'em wound up winning it all that year. So, keep that one under your hats!
    
And now hear this:
    
The NFL Playoffs are indeed down to a precious few games and we'll be releasing the Side & Totals Winners for this Sunday's AFC and NFC Championship Games on Game-Day morning anytime after 10 a.m. ET and, of course, we'll have plenty of winning goodies come Super Bowl XLIV on Sunday, February 7th.
    
And don't forget that the 2009-10 College Basketball Season is in full swing and so is the NBA too and there's lots of Hoop Winners on tap all this week long and so don't miss out on any of the b-ball fun-and-profits!
    
Jim Hurley and his Network of Handicappers and Bloggers will continue to crush Las Vegas and the off-shore books in these coming days/weeks and you can go ahead and cash in when you give us game-day calls at our exclusive toll-free telephone # of 1-800-323-4453 or else when you log online right here.

SUNDAY'S AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PREVIEW

NEW YORK JETS (11-7) at INDIANAPOLIS (15-2) - 3 p.m. ET, CBS

Well, you've got to admit one thing:
      
Both the blustery/brash/bragging Jets and the low-key/low-profile/say-no-evil Colts are both on schedule - they just got here in different ways.
    
The Jets still refuse to believe they were handed any gifts with those Week 16 and Week 17 wins against Indianapolis and Cincinnati (c'mon guys!) and once head coach Rex Ryan's club snagged a playoff berth they've shocked the football world with back-to-back post-season wins at Cincy and at San Diego.
    
Hey, did you know that's the first time since the strike year of 1982 that the J-E-T-S won two playoff games in the same season?
    
On the flip side, the Colts - who rolled through 14 straight regular-season opponents before GM Bill Polian told 'em to take a break in that Jets game on Dec. 27th (a stupid move to this day no matter what happens the rest of the way!) - finally won a post-playoff bye game with last week's 20-3 triumph over Baltimore and so the team that earned the AFC's #1 seed from the proverbial get-go is right where it figured to be months ago.
    
Now, Indianapolis won't be cutting funny-man Ryan and his club any "breaks" here - Manning will be in there for every down providing that top-rated defense doesn't send him off to first aid. Last week Manning was sacked twice - and that's an aberration considering the still-underrated Colts' offensive line allowed only 13 quarterback sacks all regular season long.
     
Naturally, if the pocket collapses around Manning here on a semi-regular occasion then there will be reason to fret for the Colts but odds are they will be keeping in an extra blocker to fend off those varied blitz packages and that's the key in a nutshell:
    
If Manning isn't hurried and/or sacked double-digit times here, then the Jets will be in trouble even if CB Darrelle Revis "locks up" WR Reggie Wayne for much of this title tilt.
    
As Manning showed last week against Baltimore while throwing for 246 yards, he's quite willing to throw quick-hitter passes that serve the dual role of gaining yards and chewing clock - and 100-catch TE Dallas Clark figures to be a favorite target and look for this All-Pro to line up in many different areas along/near the line of scrimmage.
    
Consider that the Colts ranked #2 in the NFL in passing offense (282.2 yards a game) and will be playing in this climate-controlled building at Lucas Oil Field with the league's MVP running the show - can the Jets really be expected to hold this offense under, let's say, 25 points here?
     
The other side of the coin here is what will a rather pedestrian Jets offense do against an Indy defense that held 11 foes to below 20 points this year?
    
Naturally, patience is a huge virtue for the Jets who last week went three-and-out on four different series in the first half of that 17-14 win at San Diego. Okay, so the Jets eventually cracked the Chargers with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns and the NFL's top-ranked rushing attack (172.2 yards a game) wound up close to that average with 169 ground yards, thanks in large part to that 53-yard TD run by rookie RB Shonn Green.
    
And it's Green that is the major key here after rushing for 135 and 128 yards, respectively, in the aforementioned playoff wins against the Bengals and the Chargers. The Iowa alum has "fresh legs" - something star RB Thomas Jones (14 carries for 41 yards last week) doesn't have right now -- and nobody is crazy enough to believe that rookie QB Mark Sanchez (just one INT in his last 75 pass attempts) can out-duel Manning if it comes down to that.
    
An off-the-beaten-path prediction:
    
Colts PK Matt Stover (44- and 33-yard FGs last week against the Ravens) won't gag like Cincinnati's Shyane Graham (0-for-2) and San Diego's Nate Kaeding (0-for-3) ... at least we don't think he will!

  • = AFC Wild Card Game

As you can see, even if one concedes the notion that the Colts rolled over and played dead in that now-infamous Week 16 game this year, the Jets still have had success against the Colts over the years. The above chart shows that NYJ's 4-4 SU (straightup) in its last eight head-to-head meetings with Indianapolis and that includes the walkover win in a 2002 AFC Wild Card Game at the Meadowlands.
    
Overall, the Jets enter this game at 5-3 ATS (against the spread) in these eight head-to-head meetings with the Colts since 2000 - back when they were AFC East Division rivals - and note home teams also sport a 5-3 spread mark in these tilts.
    
Spread Notes - The Jets ride a four-game spread winning streak into this AFC Championship Game bash plus NYJ's covered seven of its last eight games since Thanksgiving Day. Note that the AFC East crew is 11-2 versus the vig whenever holding opponents this season to below 20 points and the Jets are 7-3 ATS away this year and a collective 21-14 vig-wise away since the start of the 2006 campaign. Overall, the Jets are 11-7 ATS this '09 season. On the flip side, the Colts are 11-6 versus the Las Vegas prices this season and that includes a 4-5 spread log as hosts. Note that Indianapolis has covered five of its last seven post-season away games dating back to the beginning of that Super Bowl run in 2006 and this AFC South squad is 8-5 ATS overall this year against conference foes.
    
Now, here are the game-by-game logs for this season for both the Jets and the Colts:

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: WHAT TO WATCH ON THIS BUSY SATURDAY

It's not often that Duke and North Carolina lose on the same night - but that's what happened this past Wednesday when the reeling Tar Heels were blasted at home 82-69 by 6-point underdog Wake Forest while the Dookies took it on the chin in an 88-74 loss at 12-point pup N.C. State.
    
Now, here's what to watch in the ACC come Saturday:
    
The #24 North Carolina Tar Heels (12-7, 1-3 ACC) are idle until Tuesday's game at N.C. State but #7 Duke (15-3, 3-2 ACC) has a monster ESPN night game at Clemson (15-4, 3-2 ACC).
    
If Mike Krzyzewski's club is gonna turn the beat around at Littlejohn Coliseum, then someone's going to have to play some defense. The Blue Devils allowed N.C. State to shoot 32-of-55 from the floor (that's 58.2 percent) and senior guard Jon Scheyer (5-of-16 FG shooting for 21 points against the Wolf Pack) must get squared up and take/make more triples (see 3-of-7 against N.C. State) for Duke.
    
Another ACC game to check out is Virginia (12-4, 3-0 ACC) at aforementioned Wake Forest (13-4, 3-2 ACC).
    
This one tips at 4 p.m. in Winston-Salem and all eyes are on a Cavaliers club that is sitting on top of the ACC under first-year boss Tony Bennett. The Wahoos have won seven games in a row for the first time since the 2006-07 campaign and Virginia's really taken care of the ball (10-or-less turnovers in 10 different games this year) while soph star Sylven Landesberg is averaging 21 points in his three league games.

 

 

OUR NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PREVIEW IS HERE - CATCH ALL THE GOODIES FOR THIS VIKINGS-SAINTS SUNDAY SHOWDOWN

Just think about the magnitude of the following two-pronged statement:
    
The Minnesota Vikings have been a member of the National Football League since 1961 and the New Orleans Saints have been part of the NFL scene since 1967 ... and neither of 'em have ever won a Super Bowl.
     
Now, you think there's some anxiety, some pressure building for Sunday's NFC Championship Game inside the loud-and-wacky Louisiana Superdome?
     
Whether it's Joe Kapp or Jim Marshall or Bud Grant that comes to mind when thinking about Vikings team of yore or John Gilliam, Archie Manning or even Ricky Williams that makes you think of past Saints team, know this:
    
There's years and years and years of NFL commissioners handing out the Super Bowl Trophy on 43 other occasions in league history but never before have the Vikes or the Saints been the guys getting their mitts on the shiny hardware at the end of an NFL season.
    
Now, a win this Sunday makes those dreams more palpable.
    
Win and you're in Super Bowl XLIV - it's a simple statement but it doesn't figure to be an easy task on Sunday in"The Big Easy".
    
The Vikings have not been to a Super Bowl since the 1970s (Kansas City, Miami, Pittsburgh and Oakland all beat Minnesota in early Super Bowl history) and the Saints - well, they've never/ever been to a Super Bowl and so no wonder"Who Dat Nation" is busting at the seams this week/weekend.
    
We'll get into our NFC Championship Game Preview in just a moment but first this important reminder:
    
The NFL season is winding down in a hurry and we'll be releasing the Side & Totals Winners for this Sunday's AFC and NFC Championship Games on Game-Day morning anytime after 10 a.m. ET and, of course, we'll have plenty of winners come Super Bowl XLIV on Sunday, February 7th.

SUNDAY'S NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PREVIEW

MINNESOTA (13-4) at NEW ORLEANS (14-3) - 6:40 p.m. ET, Fox
    
It's safe to say that somebody is gonna enjoy a"fairytale" ending here - if the Vikings seize this opportunity and win then 40-year-old quarterback Brett Favre will have silenced any/all critics that claimed he should not have made a comeback here in 2009.
    
If the favored Saints win, well, it will one of the great post-Katrina stories to hit this rebuilding city and it may"force" the natives to party hard for the next two weeks ... anyone for a little beverage along Bourbon Street?
    
The headlines leading into this game have revolved around Favre (234 yards passing and four TD strikes in last Sunday's 34-3 NFC Divisional Playoff win against 2 ½-point underdog Dallas) and Saints slinger Drew Brees (247 passing yards and three TDs in last weekend's 45-14 win/cover against 7-point underdog Arizona in the other NFC Divisional Playoff game) but - make no mistake about it - the singular biggest matchup is what does a stellar Saints offensive line do against this fierce Minnesota pass rush?
    
The Vikings claim that both DE Ray Edwards (three sacks and six tackles last week against the Cowboys) and DT Kevin Williams will play here with both D-linemen suffering with knee woes and their mobility - along with DE Jared Allen and DT Pat Williams - is key here because if this four-man line cannot hurry/harass/sack Brees, then New Orleans' long-distance pass patterns will have time to develop and then the likes of WRs Marques Colston, Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson will flourish against this Vikes secondary.
     
Throw into the mix the fact that more time for Brees means more time to find his"dump-down" receivers such as born-again RB Reggie Bush (217 all-purpose yards last week against Arizona including a 46-yard touchdown run and a scintillating 83-yard punt bring-back for a score that finally iced things in that post-season triumph) and RB Pierre Thomas as both of these gents can/will make big plays out of short passes for Sean Payton's squad.
    
No doubt the Saints' rushing attack (see 171 yards last week against 'Zona) needs to keep the Minnesota front seven"honest" but it's not ultra-imperative for New Orleans to crank out 100-plus yards rushing - it's more important that Brees stays away from downfield picks and big-time negative yardage plays.
    
Note that New Orleans averaged 33.2 points a game in its nine home tilts this season (eight regular-season games and last week's playoff tilt) and hitting their average here would no doubt give the Saints what they want: A ticket to Miami for Supe XLIV.
    
On the flip side, Minnesota might be rollicking right into this game off that 34-point outing against Dallas last Sunday afternoon but - as everyone knows - the Vikes have been night-and-day different at home and on the road in recent weeks.
    
In fact, Brad Childress' club hasn't won on the road since November 1st - a much-celebrated 38-26 win at Green Bay in Favre's return to Lambeau Field - and among the negative aspects of last week's post-season victory was the fact Minnesota was successful on only 4-of-13 third-down plays and averaged just 3.3 yards a rush (33 carries for 109 yards with RB Adrian Peterson managing only 63 rushing yards on 26 pops).
    
No doubt that Peterson must be a bigger factor here because the Saints' game plan on"D" here is taking away WR Sidney Rice (six catches for 141 yards and three TDs last weekend) and, as you might have heard, rookie WR Percy Harvin had to sit out Friday's practice with major migraine headaches and that's been something bothering Harvin for years now.
    
So, how does road underdog Minnesota pull off the minor upset here?
    
Get 100-or-so yards rushing from Peterson - and at least a couple of shift-the-field runs - and make sure Favre's other targets not named Rice get open and move the chains on key third-down plays.
    
This could be a game where WR Bernard Berrian makes a major splash ... we'll see.

  • = NFC Divisional Playoff Game

As you can see, the Vikings have really held a hammerlock on this matchup since the start of the decade of the 2000s with five SU (straightup) wins in six tries and a sizzling 5-1 ATS (against the spread) log in these head-to-head showdowns that includes a playoff game back at the very start of the decade. The Vikes have covered three of their last four games into the Superdome including those outright upset triumphs last year and way back in 2002. P.S., note that Minnesota averaged 30.3 points a game versus New Orleans during this time period - and yet Favre was not the quarterback in any of these tilts.

Spread Notes - New Orleans enters this title tilt at 9-8 ATS overall this year including last week's 45-14 win as 7-point home favorites against Arizona in an NFL Divisional Playoff affair. Note that the Saints are a resounding 16-8 versus the vig as betting favorites while dating back to the start of the 2008 season and N'Orleans is 15-5-1 spreadwise when facing non-NFC South foes the past two years. Meanwhile, Minnesota is 10-6-1 ATS overall this season and that includes a spread split in two games as the underdog side (failed to cover at Pittsburgh, then covered at Green Bay as you can see in the accompanying chart). The Vikings have produced a losing away spread mark the past five years as Minny's just 17-21-2 ATS on the road since the start of the 2005 season and that includes a 4-4 ATS log this year. Finally, Minnesota is 6-5 spreadwise this year when facing non-NFC North crews.
