This week is the divisional round for the playoffs and their are some fantastic games on this week. Let’s start with Saturdays games which will start off with a bang.
No. 5 Baltimore Ravens (13-4) at No. 2 Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4)
Heinz Field, 4:30 p.m. ET, CBS
I truly believe that the Ravens will win this game. Their defense is strong, motivated and their offense looks great. They have a lot of weapons this year and have all the tools it takes to win the Super Bowl. Big Ben has taken a lot of shots this year and I am not sure he can hold up with that foot injury. The Steelers Defense has been somewhat inconsistent this year and I believe the Ravens will take advantage that on Saturday.
No. 6 Green Bay Packers (11-6) at No. 1 Atlanta Falcons (13-3)
Georgia Dome, 8 p.m. ET, FOX
Well I am going with the Falcons on this one. The Packers had to play a very tough team last weekend the Falcons have had time to rest. The Falcons have dominated this year and their losses haven’t been by much. They know how to win tight games and game that really count. I think the roads ends here for Green Bay and Atlanta marches on to the NFC Championship.
No. 4 Seattle Seahawks (8-9) at No. 2 Chicago Bears (11-5)
Soldier Field, 1 p.m. ET, FOX
The first game on Sunday is an interesting one. The Bears have played really decent football this year but Seattle is totally unpredictable. It should be noted that they did beat Chicago in week six and it was at Soldier Field. The other unpredictable factor in this game is Jay Cutler. One week he plays good, and the other week he throws a lot of interceptions. I am going with the upset and saying Seattle meets Atlanta in the NFC Championship game.
No. 6 New York Jets (12-5) at No. 1 New England Patriots (14-2)
Gillette Stadium, 4:30 p.m. ET, CBS
The game everyone is talking about and it’s going to be a good one. In week two, the Jets beat the Patriots 28-14 at home. However in week thirteen, the Patriots beat the Jets at home 45-3. I hate to say it because I am a Jets fan but I believe the Patriots will meet the Ravens in the AFC Championship game. The Patriots are just playing too good right now.
So there you have it, my predictions for this weekend.
