Whiteboy picks the playoffs: SUS Playoff Challenge begins!!

Philadelphia Iggles (-2) at Minnesota Petersons- These two teams have arrived at this playoff matchup in decidedly different ways. Philly, save a putrid offensive showing against the Skins in week 16, has been playing brilliant ball since its tie against Cincy going 4-1 over that span. Donovan is throwing it well to Baskett and Jackson and Westbrook is finally being used as a real running back and not purely as a checkdown option in the passing game. Minnesota looks like garbage. The Giant's 2nd team offense was shreading its 1st team defense for most of the 2nd half and only lost because New York put in its third string defense; in other words, if that was a playoff game you would be seeing Corey "Pro-Bowl Snubb" Webster on Bernard Berrian and not talented but green under the ears CB Terell Thomas. Minnesota also got rocked by red hot Atlanta in its own building a week prior. I will be rooting hard for the purple and white because I don't want to face Philly again but I just don't see it happening. THE PICK :EAGLES 24-13
