Who cares? The two best teams in the NFL lost by having fluky turnovers last week.

Amen. It wasn't momentum, it wasn't an identity crisis, it came down to ball security.

My picks ----

N. England over Balt.

Giants over the 49er's (probably in OT)

Still nailed it.

How often is it that the team that makes the least mistakes, wins. A grudge match Superbowl coming up. Although I think the Giants have the overall defense over offense edge over NE, Brady and Co will really want payback. Since it is unlikely that NE will fumble as much as the Pack did against the Giants, I give this one to NE in another close one. But I wouldn't be shocked at all by a Giants blowout.

And I think that offense carrying the team and the mere fact of willing to live with a bend but not break defense is what doomed the Packers. Shootouts are not football, IMO. Really looking forward to a different defensive team next year and an appropriate SB to go with it.

the patriots had a -2 turnover differential in the game yesterday and still won

So the Packers go on a tear at the end of last season, win three play-off road games, and win the Super Bowl with the most banged up championship team in history. And the Giants (with a near identical record) go win three play-off road games to get to the big dance this year. And they did the same thing in 2007 and won the Super Bowl. But there is no such thing as momentum. Teams do not "get hot." They just get lucky I guess. OK. If that's your view, that's your view.

Their first game was at home, and san
Francisco's special teams implosion ( twice) had nothing to do with Giants momentum. That would be the lazy narrative.

I dunno, the Giants defense really did a nice job of keeping the 49ers to zero third down conversions.

Of course, I almost had an aneurism with the number of 2nd-and-long runnings plays from the shotgun that were called by San Francisco. Really?

You're right, I'm wrong - the Giants did play the first game at home this year.

Yes, there is a lot of luck involved. But having the ball bounce your way is one thing. Capitalizing on it (and not tripping on your own mistakes) is another. Look at the Packers game against the Giants. They had their opportunities, but did not take advantage.

To me, momentum is desire and confidence. It drives you when the going gets tough because you are on a mission and will not be denied. Does that sound like the team that we saw at Lambeau last week?

It's ALL about who's hot in December.
