Is Favre Done?
Four picks against a Vikings defense that had 11 interceptions all year, two straight playoff losses in Lambeau, and he's looking older by the game. Maybe Favre should go into politics. Or acting..

The Eagles and Falcons should make the NFC Championship Game easily, each facing off against a mediocre team that struggled to go 8-8 in the regular season. The Pats and the Colts on the other hand will fight to the death in Foxboro. My pick is the Colts - the Pats have dominated the rivalry so far, but their banged up defense goes against a Colt offense coming off a record-setting year.
