We've got one divisional playoff game in the bag, and the second taking place today is a few short moments away from kickoff. Riding a two-game self-inflicted losing streak, Indianapolis is set to take on Baltimore, a team that absolutely flattened Indy's arch rival, New England, in Wild Card action less than a week ago.

Indy has a lot to prove in this matchup. With an opportunity to play for a perfect record, GM Bill Polian and head coach Jim Caldwell made the controversial - and that's an understatement - decision to rest its starters. While we'll be eternally grateful for that move, as it allows us Bills fans to brag that we beat two of the remaining four AFC playoff contenders this past season, it also irritated Colts fans. Baltimore, for all of its flaws, isn't exactly a favorable matchup for the Colts, either - they run the ball very well and play tough, aggressive defense. This could be an excellent game.

This is your open thread for tonight's game. Enjoy it, have fun, and as always, stay classy. Buffalo Rumblings' authors made their picks below - no, we're not really an exciting bunch.
