With all the coaches and GM’s being fired I almost forget that the playoffs start this weekend. Their are a few teams that I didn’t expect to be in the playoffs but some are more obvious then others. I have this gut feeling that these playoffs are going to be exciting and shocking. Let’s get down to business as now the regular season is over and the playoffs have begun.
Bengals at Texans (NBC)
The Bengals had a great run at the end of the season and the Texans really fell apart the last month of the season. I think the Bengals will give the Texans a run for their money but I see Houston moving on the next round.
Vikings at Packers (NBC)
After watching the Vikings beat the Packers on Sunday one has to wonder if Green Bay can still hang. However the Packers always get hot during the playoff especially at home. I am going with the Packers for the win but I am very conflicted about this choice.
Sunday 1 p.m.
Colts at Ravens (CBS)
Ravens are old and Colts are young. Joe Flacco chokes in the playoffs every year and the defense is getting old and injured on a weekly basis. With the motivation of having Chuck Pagano back and Andrew Luck looking like a veteran I think the Colts are going to pull what most people would call an upset and move on to the playoffs.
Seahawks at Redskins (Fox)
One name….RG3. I think RG3 is going to shred the Seahawks defense apart. I love what the Redskins have done this year and I think they have a great long term future which will start with a win against Seattle. It’s refreshing to see the Redskins outlast the Cowboys, Eagles and Giants.
The AFC teams with byes are the Patriots and Broncos and the NFC teams with byes are the Falcons and 49ers. The Road to New Orleans is going to fierce and hot.
