NFL Playoffs, Who To Root For: Ravens-Steelers, Packers-Falcons

Over at, one of my favorite writers, Spencer Hall, writes a rootability guide for big college football games. Basically it's a guide of who to root for during the game so I figured we'd try that today.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 3:30 p.m. (Arrowhead time), CBS: The Ravens just beat the Chiefs so I think I'm going to be rooting for them to go all the way. I'd like to see the team that beat the Chiefs end up being the best in football. Plus, the Steelers have been there lately and I'd like to see a change to the NFL's power structure.

The winner: Ravens 14 Steelers 10

Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons, 7:00 p.m. (Arrowhead time), FOX: Obviously I'm going to be cheering for the Falcons. They've got Tony Gonzalez and I want to see him get a playoff win and possibly a Super Bowl ring. Unfortunately I don't think the Falcons win this one. I want them to but Green Bay is tough.

The winner: Packers 24 Falcons 20

Now it's your turn. Who's on your rootability guide?
