Playoff Predictions

Wednesday, Jan, 2 2013

In the weeks leading up to the end of the season, I would go through the "if the playoffs started today" scenarios.  We can't do that anymore as the season is over and we have the playoffs staring us down this weekend.  So now it's time to put my neck out there and give you my playoff picks!

***My preseason (actually, my pick the day after last year's Super Bowl) was Green Bay over Houston.  Just to note that I am wavering from it.***

Wild Card Weekend
Packers over Vikings:  Rodgers > Ponder no matter how good A.P is
Seahawks over Redskins:  Seahawks will be to physical for the Redskins
Texans over Bengals:  Texans have struggled, but the Bengals don't "wow" me
Colts over Ravens:  The emotion of Pagano being there will be the difference

Divisional Weekend
49ers over Packers:  49ers defense will be the difference
Seahawks over Falcons: Sorry Atlanta, your stigma will stick with you
Broncos over Colts:  I get my dream Peyton vs Indy matchup, Colts get the nightmare finish
Patriots over Texans: Brady vs Manning is destiny

Conference Championships
49ers over Seahawks:  Jim Harbaugh will out coach Pete Carroll
Patriots over Broncos: I really hate picking against Bill and Tom, even thought I should

Super Bowl
Patriots over 49ers:  Brady with a game winning touchdown drive...why not?

If the NFL Playoffs started today...

Tuesday, Dec, 18 2012

Considering the number of BIG GAMES in week 15, there is no shock to me whatsoever with the amount of change we saw this week.  The Giants and Bears drop out in the NFC while the Steelers are out of the picture completely with a loss this week.  So once again, if the playoffs started today with my current picks.

NFC Seeds
1.) Atlanta Falcons (12-2)
2.) San Francisco 49ers (10-3-1)
3.) Green Bay Packers (10-4)
4.) Washington Redksins (9-5)
5.) Seattle Seahawks (9-5)
6.) Minnesota Vikings (8-6)

NFC Wild Card Round
Packers over Vikings
Seahawks over Redskins

NFC Divisional Round
Packers over 49ers
Falcons over Seahawks

NFC Championship Game
Packers over Falcons

AFC Seeds
1.) Houston Texans (11-2)
2.) Denver Broncos (11-3)
3.) New England Patriots (10-4)
4.) Baltimore Ravens (9-5)
5.) Indianapolis Colts (9-5)
6.) Cincinnati Bengals (8-6)

AFC Wild Card Round
Patriots over Bengals
Ravens over Colts

AFC Divisional Round
Texans over Ravens
Patriots over Broncos

AFC Championship Game
Patriots over Texans

Super Bowl
Patriots over Packers

***Again, I am picking Green Bay if they play in San Francisco and Atlanta.  That is once again how things would play out (in my mind)I probably will regret that.  Patriots are still the team to beat in my mind despite the hiccup Sunday night...***
