This week is the Divisional Round in the NFL Playoffs and their are some intriguing games this and interesting match ups. Lets start with Saturdays games first.
Arizona Cardinals at New Orleans Saints
Well we know both teams can score and score big. The Cardinals are starting to build the momentum they had last year when they got into the Super Bowl. The Saints lost a lot of momentum towards the end of the season. Both teams have very shaky defenses and high powered offenses. I think that the Cardinals are going to upset the Saints and go on to the NFC Championship game.
Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts
The Ravens defense took down Brady and I believe they will do the same thing to Payton Manning. Ray Lewis has been on a tear lately and so have the Ravens in general. The Colts also lost momentum the last few weeks of the season. I think the Ravens move on to the AFC Championship game.
Then you have Sundays games which are just as good as Saturdays game, maybe even better because of the teams playing. Here are Sundays games.
Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings
Both teams have a lot of momentum going into this game but Minnesota has Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson and all the weapons at Wide Receiver. This will be the game that Tony Romo chokes again. The Vikings defense is going to be too much for him to handle. I also believe Peterson is due for a huge game and I think he’s going to have a huge game against the Cowboys. The Vikings easily move on to the NFC Championship Game.
New York Jets at San Diego Chargers
This game is very intriguing to me because of the different philosophies each team has. They play the game in two totally different ways. The Chargers have been very dominant and the Jets barely skated into the playoffs. I think at the end of the day the Chargers will move on to the AFC Championship game. Everything is clicking for them right now and it’s going to be hard to stop them.
So there you have it, my predictions for the week. I think it’s going to be an exciting week. Last I week I guessed 2 games right, maybe I’ll get all four right this week. Check back Monday for a recap of the games and predictions for the AFC and NFC Championship games.
