NFL Championship Weekend

NFC (FOX, 3:00 PM ET): Philadelphia Eagles @ Arizona Cardinals

AFC (CBS, 6:30 PM ET): Baltimore Ravens @ PITTSBURGH Steelers

With my credibility shot, my self respect in tatters, I offer this last-gasp stab at redemption. The Eagles-Steelers matchup is the logical selection. So …:

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES at ARIZONA CARDINALS: The Eagles, by all appearances, are the 2008 edition of last year’s Giants. But the Eagles are beaten up, and Arizona — a dangerous home team all season — proved they are legit with the trouncing of the Carolina Panthers. Cardinals 29 Eagles 17

BALTIMORE RAVENS at PITTSBURGH STEELERS: It’s incredibly hard to beat the same team three times in one season. Ask the 2007 Cowboys, who beat the New York Giants twice before losing to them in the playoffs. Ask the 2008 Giants, who suffered the same fate at the hands of the Eagles (memo to self: do not blog while fighting vicious head cold. Nice catch, Adam.). In a razor-tight game, that could be enough. Ravens 17 Steelers 13.

*Super Bowl XLIII at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida on Sunday, February 1 (NBC).
