The Mondays: Chargers, Cardinals, Ravens and Eagles advance to the divisional round

Arizona Cardinals 30 - Atlanta Falcons 24- The Cardinals made light work of the Falcons. The Cards were able to shut down both Matt Ryan and Michael Turner. Turner was held to only 42 yards rushing. The Cardinals will now head to Carolina to play the Panthers.

San Diego Chargers 23 - Indianapolis Colts 17- The Chargers seem to have the Colts number in the playoffs. Darren Sproles and Philip Rivers had fantastic games. The Chargers now head to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers.

Baltimore Ravens 27 - Miami Dolphins 9- The Ravens are a good team. The Titans should really watch out. The Ravens defense torched the Dolphins, giving up only 276 net yards, 52 of them rushing. It will be a tough task, but the Ravens do have a shot against the Titans. I'll have a preview of all games this week.

Philadelphia Eagles 26 - Minnesota Vikings 14- Experience beats out new hotness in this battle. The Jim Johnson defense held Adrian Peterson to 83 yards, but gave up two touchdowns in the process. However, if you take away the 40-yard touchdown run, Peterson has only 43 yards on 19 carries. The Eagles didn't play their best on Sunday, but they did enough to stop the Vikings. They will now face the Giants in what should be an epic showdown.

As I mentioned above, I will preview all four divisional games.

Enjoy your Monday!
