Giants Gab Editor Jeremy Fuchs’ Championship Game Picks

The two Championship games have the potential to be classics. They feature great offenses and great defenses, legendary players, and wunderkinds. Who will come out on top and face off in the Super Bowl? Here are my picks for Championship Sunday
JETS AT COLTS:

At first glance, the Colts are the clear favorite. Great offense, pretty good defense. And you have Peyton Manning. To paraphrase Stephen A. Smith, quite frankly, that’s all you need. But, the more and more I think about it, the more and more I lean towards the Jets. The Jets remind me a lot of the 2007 Giants. Great defense, great run game. They don’t ask the QB to do too much, but when they do, he delivers. Jets are hot. They have that magic about them. The Colts are good, but the Jets’ mojo may be too much.

FINAL SCORE: Jets 24, Colts 17

VIKINGS AT SAINTS

This should be a fun game. Saints can score on anyone, but so can the Vikes. It all comes down, in my mind, to whoever can make the most stops. I think it’s the Saints. They will have to make some big plays–I’m looking at you, Darren Sharper–but I think that their defense is better than the Vikes. The Saints will have to find a way to stop Jared Allen, mostly by putting a tight end on him.

FINAL SCORE: Saints 24, Vikings 14
