NFL Playoff Pick'Em

Last year I had a website for picking the playoff winners. Then I realized, why? I can just do it here. I also offered a trophy to the winner from me...except I won. Doh!

Anyway, this is open to anyone and everyone, pick the playoff winners, and the scores. The scores are for tie-breakers, you get 1 point of being within 3 points of the actual score for each team respectively, and 1 point of guessing the discrepancy correctly. Any posts showing edited later than the Friday of that playoff week will be DQed. So you can change it, but those times show. :thumbs up:

Wild Card Round:

Baltimore @ New England: 27-17, Baltimore Win.

New England's offense is in a pinch without Wes Welker, and while I think that they are still a difficult team, the combo of Baltimore's 2 running backs, McClain at fullback, and Flacco throwing better is the recipe for success. Ray Rice will be the key in this one.

New York @ Cincinnati: 23-13. Cincinatti



Philly @ Dallas: 30-27 Dallas



Green Bay @ Arizona: 24-10 Green Bay

This is just getting eerie. I mean, thank goodness for the Baltimore game, at least we have on switch from last weekend. I pick Green Bay here, that 33-7 win convinced me that they just have it on the offense. Such a tough team that can pound the ball the way they do will be difficult to stop. The Steelers couldn't stop them, and only pulled a win off of a ballsy play by Tomlin. They've won 7 of their last 8 and Arizona is more streaky than my underwear. Control control control, the mantra and expected results from the Pack.

Interesting Notes:

The AFC should thank the Texans and Ravens for keeping the Steelers out. Had to plug that, lol.

Green Bay has scored 165 points in their last 5 games, but only allowed 82, nearly half of that coming from Pittsburgh. Only in one of their 16 games did Green Bay score under 20 points. (17-7 W over Dallas)

The Cowboys are dubbed the team to beat in the NFC, but does anyone expect them to win 3 in a row just to get to the Superbowl?

The last time Baltimore rushed for under 100 in a game Joe Flacco threw a 152 QB rating.

The Jets have the #1 Ranked Rushing Offense, and #1 Ranked Defense. The Bengals have the 22nd ranked offense, but #9 ranked rush defense. How will those numbers match up this week?



Changed 2 games at the last moment. I have a feeling the Bengals will actually come out this time, and Dallas will be the status quo team from week 17-Wild Card.
