The Playoffs – Giants v. Falcons for Princess

I don’t have to tell everyone what a huge win last weeks victory over the Dallas Cowboys was for the NY Giants, it was huge. The win sealed the division title for the G-men and propelled them into the NFL playoffs. And if you remember back to last week, Princess the Camel predicted the outcome correctly!

For those keeping track thus far of Princess’s prognostications for the year, she finished up the regular season with an impressive 11(W)-5(L)record with last weeks win, she is now looking to extend her winning ways into the playoffs.

In the opening round of this years playoffs, the Giants will be facing the Atlanta Falcons at home on Suday in MetLife Stadium. It will be the very first playoff game held in the Giants the new stadium.

So who does Princess the Camel favor in this historic game? The Giants of course!

“…the Giants defense is finally healthy now. Did you see what they did to Romo last week? I felt bad for him and I feel sorry for the Falcons quarterback. Eli to Cruz unstoppable!!! They ought to call it “The Cruz Missile”.”, said Princess, not at all trying to hide her glee over the resurgent Giants.

Do the Giants and Princess have what it take to continue their winning ways (until at least next week)? I think so, the Falcons are a team built to play indoors and while the weather may not a big factor (temps in the mid 40’s with a chance of rain and possible wind), it may come into play at some point and turn the game in favor of the Giants.

A Football Friday Double-Header: Princess Picks Pariots over Jets, Giants Over Falcons

For this week, Princess the Camel is doubling-down and picking picking two teams to win on Sunday after her pick of the Jets came up short in the final seconds against the Jaguars last week.

For some reason Princess’s handler John seems to want to stick with local teams this week even though her choices for the New York teams haven’t worked out very well so far this season.

In the first of her picks this week, Princess has chosen the New England Patriots to beat the Jets in the early game in New England, then changes gears and picks the Giants to clip the wings of the Falcons as the swoop down into Giants Stadium.

When questioned about her pick’s Princes responded ” Well, if the NE coach doesn’t make any blunders like he did last week in the loss to the Colts they should roll over the Jets. The Giants – I hope they learned a lesson from the Jets and used their extra week off to get their act together and prepare for the Falcons.”.

Well Princess, so do I.

Princess’s predictions now stand at an even .500 , 5-5 for the season.
