Wild Card Weekend.


I was going to offer one more NFL Awesome Rankings, but figured it would be all the teams in the playoffs. So instead, here is a playoff preview with picks to win them all.

Wild Card Weekend:
New Orleans Saints (11-5) @ Seattle Seahawks (7-9): The defending champs have been “under the radar” this entire year, but continue to feature a tough defense and explosive offense. The Seahawks are the first team to win their division with a losing record. While I am tempted to take Seattle at home (12th man is tough), I think New Orleans pulls out a squeaker.
My Pick: New Orleans 24 Seattle 20

New York Jets (11-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (10-6): Former #1 JWSB Power Rankings New York has had a rough few weeks. Going 2-3 the last five weeks has gotten the Jets into the playoffs, but with a little negativity attached. The Colts still have Peyton Manning, but his weapons are severely depleted. While I think Manning keeps things interested, the Jets will just be too tough.
My Pick: New York 27 Indianapolis 24

Baltimore Ravens (12-4) @ Kansas City Chiefs (10-6): The young Chiefs have looked good offensively all season, but the defense has some definite question marks. The Ravens are one of the favorites in the AFC, featuring Ray Rice and that vaunted Raven defense. This one will be another close one, and I am taking the upset.
My Pick: Kansas City 23 Baltimore 20

Green Bay Packers (10-6) @ Philadelphia Eagles (10-6): This should be a great first round matchup. The Eagles have MVP candidate Michael Vick going against an athletic and fast Packer defense. These 2 teams met in week 1 in a very good game. This time though, Vick gets the start. If the Packer run game can help out, the Packers could win on the road.
My Pick: Green Bay 30 Philadelphia 26

    The Saints sure got an easy first round matchup getting to face the Seahawks at home. They haven’t played that well all season, at least in relative terms to last season, but I think that they have a shot to make a run at the Super Bowl. Obviously they shouldn’t have it as tough as other wild card teams as they have to play the Seahawks, but they are also in the been there, done that kind of place, which gives them a big edge over teams like the Bears and Packers. It should be a very interesting NFL playoffs as no one has showed themselves to be favourites this season.
