    The NFL’s Conference Championship Games are this Sunday. Are you ready to find out who is going to make it to the big game on February 1st? Here are the match-ups:

    NFC – Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals, Sunday, January 18th at 3:00 PM EST

    AFC – Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday, January 18th at 6:30 PM EST

    I’m going with the all-Pennsylvania Super Bowl. The Phillies just won the World Series in October 2008, so why not another team from Philly (or Pittsburgh – aren’t all Pennsylvania cities the same anyway?) winning the Super Bowl in February 2009?

    Check out the ESPN crew’s picks here. Everyone likes the Steelers at home, but the group is divided in the NFC.

    The Steelers won both contests against the Ravens during the regular season. Although both games were close, I’m looking for the Steelers Willie Parker to run wild on a tired Ravens defense and numerous mistakes from the Raven’s rookie QB Joe Flacco who will end up losing the game for Baltimore.

    Philadelphia’s defense is just playing too well right now. While Arizona has played well at home and found a resurgent running game with Edgerrin James, I don’t think they have what it takes to put up enough points to win the game. Eagles QB Donovan McNabb and RB Bryan Westbrook each emerged from the Giants Divisional Playoff victory with no significant injuries, and that means the 2 will be ready to go off in Phoenix. Look for a 31-17 victory for the Eagles and a 2nd shot at the NFL title for McNabb.

    Good luck – stay warm – and enjoy some exciting NFL action this weekend!
