Dirty Cleats: Analysis and predictions for Super Bowl Sunday

One thing is for certain: this will not be a boring game.

Four years ago, in Glendale, Arizona, the New York Giants shocked the New England Patriots -- and a nation of football fans -- as what many have claimed to be the greatest Super Bowl of all time.

An improbable catch and final touchdown by the Giants ended the Patriots' road to perfection that year.

This Sunday, they will be at it again.

To say that revenge will be on the minds of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady is an understatement.

Will they get it?

Dirty Cleats: Predictions for NFL's 2011 Championship Weekend

Championship weekend is upon us, and the four teams left are going to bring us two games we’ll be talking about for weeks after.

The next two games are both worth watching, as all four teams have their strengths and very few weaknesses.

Vegas is favoring the Patriots and 49ers, but that hasn't meant much his football season, because upsets have been an ongoing trend.

Saturday morning, I’m jet-setting to San Francisco to enjoy some NFC Championship game excitement in one of my favorite cities.

Dirty Cleats: Predictions for NFL's 2011 Divisional Round

Eight teams remain in this race to Super Bowl XLVI.

Who will continue onto Championship weekend and who will pack their bags to head home?

There are two games on Saturday: New Orleans at San Francisco (1:30 PM PST), and Denver at New England (5:00 PM PST).

There are two games on Sunday: Houston at Baltimore (10:00 AM PST) and NY Giants at Green Bay (1:30 PM PST).

Dirty Cleats: Predictions for NFL's 2011 Wild Card Weekend

The regular season came to a finale Sunday night, as the Giants won the NFC East.

My regular season record ended up at 166-88. Next season, I just might move to Vegas to cash in on these picks!

Yay! The post-season is here!

Twelve teams made it, but as we head into Wild Card Weekend, only eight will play. This leaves the four top-seeded teams, (Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, and the Baltimore Ravens) out for a week.

The best part about this playoff season is that each team has a distinct strength and weakness, making no game a definite win.

Dirty Cleats: Predictions for NFL's 2011 Week Seventeen

This is the final week of regular season play for the 2011 NFL season.

There will be some good games, as a lot will be decided as this week comes to a close. Unfortunately, there is not a Thursday game or a Monday night football game.

However, there is a Sunday night football game that is the perfect ending to such a great season. The Giants host the Cowboys in a must-win game. The loser will not advance to the playoffs.

Dirty Cleats: Predictions for NFL's 2011 Week Sixteen

Perfection fell and the defeated prevailed in Week Fifteen, as the Packers are now imperfect and the Colts grabbed a win at home.

The 72’ Dolphins are safe for another year, and they have the Kansas City Chiefs to thank.

After the last few weeks of impossible upsets and unpredictable blow-outs, I take nothing for granted in the NFL.

As the season wraps up in the next two weekends, prepare for some grand entrances into the playoffs and some heartbreaking mishaps, that cause a few of the better-playing teams to be watching post-season from their couches.
