SD is the worst possible matchup for Denver next week. They better learn quickly from that loss a month ago.

That was the only pick I had any kind of confidence in. Oops.

That was my least confident pick.   I don't think Dalton has ever won a playoff game.   Between him and Bernard, SD had to win.

I think you're right - he hasn't - but I tried to look at the whole team and not put so much emphasis on just QB. Of course, I'm a Dallas fan so maybe that's a self-defense mechanism. I thought Cincy was better and playing at home made it an easy pick for me. 1-2 so far ...

Cinci's problems are a lot more with coaching than their QB.  That isn't to say I think Dalton is a great QB (he isn't), but I think a team could win with him.  I just don't like the coaching on the offensive side of the ball for Cinci at all.  It really is bad.  I mean Cinci had over 100 more yards, over 20 more plays, won the time of possession, etc. and lost the game by 17.  Now sure the turnovers certainly played a part in that, but they should have scored more than 10 even with all of that.

I actually thought that during the game but then wondered if it was a matter of execution.   A coach can call any type of play but, if the QB can't run it, it doesn't matter.   That said, I've never thought Lewis was much of a coach.

I realize it was wet, but I was very surprised they didn't try for the 56 yarder in the 4th quarter. Statistically, what's the better bet: hitting a 56 yard FG or converting on 4th and 13? They were down by 10, so going for the FG made the most sense there, especially with how Dalton was throwing today.

Cincy was so dominant at home this year, I'm surprised they were able to look so horrid today. SD gets credit for the win, but I think Cincy gave this one away more than SD won it.
