Arizona Cardinals
(10-6) at New Orleans Saints (13-3)

1:30 PM PST, FOX
Cardinals coverage: Revenge of the Birds
Saints coverage: Canal Street Chronicles


After last weekend's wild finish, the Arizona Cardinals find themselves squaring off against the offensive juggernaut that is the New Orleans Saints.  The Saints stumbled to three straight losses in closing out the regular season, so you have to wonder if they can "turn it on" now that the games really matter.  The Saints sit as touchdown favorites, in a game where an over/under of 57.5 might not be enough.  In my prediction for the game (Saints 34-24), I actually think I was rather conservative with my estimate.  Either way, if you're looking for offensive fireworks, this would seem to be the game for you.

Baltimore Ravens (9-7) at Indianapolis Colts (14-2)

Ravens coverage: Baltimore Beatdown
Colts coverage: Stampede Blue

While the Cardinals and Saints looks to provide us with offensive fireworks, something about the Ravens-Colts matchup has me intrigued.  The Colts are actually also touchdown favorites, although the over/under is much lower at 44 points.  I think part of the reason I'm sensing a close battle is the fact that the Colts laid down for the final two games of the season.  Maybe nothing will come of that, but I have to wonder if karma will swing back and around and kick them in the junk.  Anybody else think that?
