Divisional Round Playoff Predictions

AFC:

Titans @ Patriots

After watching what Kelce did to the Titans defense before he was injured, Gronk should have no problem shredding the defense. Patriots don't make mistakes, Marituou (or whatever) does. I "like" the Patriots.

Jaguars @ Steelers

Blake Bortles is too bad to torch the  Steelers mediocre defense?? Yeah, basically. Steelers are a tough out at home when they catch the ball ha.

NFC:

Falcons @ Eagles

Falcons aren't going to be able to handle Philadelphia's physicality in the cold. Atlanta is soft. I'm over the recency bias already. I like Philadelphia.

Saints @ Vikings

This should be a game as both teams play much better than they look on paper. But the Saints are a team on fire at home and will ultimately have to rely on their defense to win them the game... yeah... so I like the home-dome atmosphere and think the other Vikings' intangibles (e.g. swagger, and getting to a home super bowl) will be too much to handle. I do have some reservations.. Not the team we wanted to play this round and as long a Blair Walsh 2.0 is kicking i'll be on the edge of my seat.


I am rooting for every team I picked against (except the vikings' opponent) and am looking forward to an AFC South championship followed by Dirty bird hunting!

My only hope is that we don't have Atlanta @ Minnesota for the NFC title.

The amount of hype related to the 1998 NFC Championship game would be overwhelming.

Apologies, all around. I never should have posted the link here. It was not an intentional mistake on my part.

I am also on the edge of my seat with the Saints-Vikings game.  I have been a Vikings fan since 1961.  I thought their season was over when Bradford got hurt, but they proved me wrong.  All season they kept my blood pressure going.  Go Vikings.

While it's been awhile since the Vikings made it to the 'big one'  I'm rooting for the Saints to win

Well. That happened. So much for getting in field goal range.

This weeks picks are going to be succinct.

I like the Jaguars to punch the Patriots right in the mouth. Brady's up that's all the good they'll have to say  ;). Then I have to take the Vikings, because the chance to play in a home super bowl is priceless... but... Win or lose. We. Will. Skol.

Jags over the Patriots...just because I don't like New England
Vikings over the Eagles...just because I like the color purple
