FOOTBALL



Here are your Late Consensus Picks for the NFL playoff games of Saturday, Jan. 5.


VERY STRONG PLAYS: None


STRONG PLAYS: Indianapolis +2 Houston


REGULAR PLAYS: Seattle +2 Dallas


NORM'S LATE THOUGHTS: I've begun to look more and more at the totals on these two games today. Recent trends point to UNDERS in this round. But I like only one of these games to go UNDER. Houston's defense has been stout all year and Indy's defense has gotten better as its youth has developed. So:


TAKE: Indy--Houston UNDER 48


The Dallas defense has eroded the last four weeks allowing 11TD's and 8 FG's in its last 36 opponent possessions. The Cowboys have allowed 7 1/2 points per quarter over their last 14 quarters  after permitting only 4 1/2 points per quarter through their first 50 quarters. Seattle has allowed 10 of their 16 opponents this year to reach at least 24 points. So:


TAKE: Dallas--Seattle OVER 43
