    Friday's two minute drill

    One thing that often happens in the NFL is when a team rattles off a few wins, there's a tendency to overvalue how good that squad really is.

    Remember when Sports Illustrated's Peter King started loving the Vikings last year when they won five in a row?

    Good read, thanks...he makes some good points.

    As far as sportswriters go, momentum is a huge factor in who they think is a good team. When the Giants got on a roll last year, they looked good to everybody.
