Gregg Easterbrook doesn't have the New York Times to kick around anymore, now that the Times has ceased its practice of picking the exact final score for each game. Here's hoping Gregg turns his eye on our old buddy B. Duane Cross, who tells us that the Packers will beat the Colts 24-21 in overtime on Sunday, as well as his projected final score for each NFL game. He also tells us that he has a 6-year-old daughter named Peyton. It kind of makes me feel sad to think of B. Duane as an actual human being with a daughter and everything. Almost like I shouldn't make fun of him anymore. Almost.
Denver's defense carried the team all season, and carried Peyton Manning right to a second Super Bowl ring in his worst season. Carolina's offense joins long list of postseason duds from the 500-point club.
