Styx singer-guitarist and co-founder James "JY" Young, after going three-for-four in picking last week's Wild Card games, is back to break down this weekend's Division Series.
In the early game on Saturday in the NFC he's picking the favored New Orleans Saints to go into San Francisco and take out the 49ers by three points.
The Saturday game that most people will be tuning into is the AFC match-up between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots in suburban Boston. JY feels religious Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is really out of miracles this time and that they "don't have a prayer." He's picking the Patriots by 10.
The first game on Sunday has the Houston Texans visiting the Baltimore Ravens and JY thinks "the Ravens are a solid touchdown favorite... Baltimore is just a little too strong at home."
And rounding out the weekend are the New York Giants going up against the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers in Green Bay. JY feels the Packers still have "a big chip" on their shoulders after losing to the Giants in the NFC Championship game in 2008 and that they will avenge that upset with a seven-point victory.
So if JY is correct, then it will be the Ravens and Patriots in the AFC Championship game next week and the Saints and Packers in the NFC with the winners of each going onto Super Bowl 46 on February 5th in Indianapolis.
