According to the receipt from last night at Ace Bar, there were 42 Irish car bombs consumed in five hours. The Colts won that game, right?

That made today's viewing of the Eagles/Vikings much more subdued and, honestly, much more satisfying. Today's NFC Wildcard game proved to be loaded with defense, Purple Jesus, questionable play-calling, and a timely appearance by Brian Westbrook. It wasn't pretty, easy, or confidence-building, but it did result in victory, glorious victory. So pay up, Drew.

So the Best Football Weekend lineups are set: For the divisional playoffs, we'll get the Buzzsaw of Arizona travel to Carolina for a Saturday night date with the Deange-a-Panthers. The Eagles head to the Meadowlands on Sunday for the early game. Ed Reed and the Furious Flacco head down to Music City for the Saturday nap time special game. Norv Turner's Nine Coaching Lives move on to face the Steely McBeams at Rusted Root Stadium in the Sunday late afternoon game. Should be fun.

Oh, and regardless of today's outcome, I still think Kendra Wilkinson's presence will negatively affect the team before the playoffs are over.

Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin and it's new Recession Weekend schedule.

See you tomorrow.
