    NFL Playoff Predictions

    Let's hear them. Predict who will be in the playoffs, what seed they will be, and than how the playoffs will play out. Who will be in the playoffs isn't too tricky with only 2 games to go

    AFC
    #1 Colts
    #2 Chargers
    #3 Bengals
    #4 Patriots
    #5 Ravens
    #6 Dolphins

    I think Denver's lose to Oakland is going to keep them out of the playoffs as I have them losing @ Philly this week. I like that Miami's last 2 games are at home. And while both are tough (Houston and Pittsburgh), I think they take care of business. Especially if Pitt loses to Baltimore this week and has nothing to play for

    Dolphins at Bengals: Like Bengals over Miami at home

    Ravens at Patriots: I like Baltimore as their offense is underrated and thier defense is good enough to slow down the Pats

    Bengals at Chargers. Like Cinnci. Just lost this past week to San Diego on a last second FG. I think they take care of business on the road

    Ravens at Colts. I am not sold on this Colts team BUT Peyton Manning has owned the Ravens the last 5 times he has played them. Passer rating of 106 in that time. Still I think Baltimore is going to beat them and the Colts do what they do more often than not....lose in the playoffs. Ravens

    AFC Title Game
    Bengals vs. Ravens: Feel good story? Bengals win the AFC for their fallen teammate? I don't think so. Ravens win



    NFC
    #1 Saints
    #2 Vikings
    #3 Cowboys
    #4 Philly
    #5 Cardinals
    #6 Green Bay

    Packers at Cowboys. Is Ware healthy? If so he can get a lot of pressure on Rodgers and if you sack him you know what you can do to the Packers. Cowboys at home in their first playoff win since Lincoln was president

    Cardinals at Philly. Rematch of last years conference title game. Same result. Cardinals win

    Cardinals at Vikings. Cards dominated earlier this year. This is different. In the dome. Vikings win

    Cowboys at Saints. See above. Cowboys won already but not in this rematch. Saints win

    NFC Title Game
    My heart says Vikings but my brain says Saints. It all depends on 2 things. Can AP be a consistent threat on the ground AND can Jared Allen get to Brees. At New Orleans....Saints win


    NFL Super Bowl

    Saints vs Ravens. Give Brees and Payton 2 weeks to prepare and I think they use the Ravens aggressiveness to their advantage. Saints win




    ***Now watch the Ravens lose the last 2...not go to the playoffs and the Colts beat everybody by 20+****

    Wouldnt the Cards be division champs, therefore have at minimum 4th seed?

    Other then that, I think you got the teams in the NFC right.

    NFC
    #1 Saints
    #2 Vikings
    #3 Eagles
    #4 Cards
    #5 Packers
    #6 Cowboys

    Does it work that way? That's what I thought at first but wasn't sure so I just went by how I saw the record playing out.

    I think Dallas wins @ Washington and then beats Philadelphia at home the last game of the year to win the division at 11-5

    Although last year they got killed by them to go to the playoffs so who knows

    Re: NFL Playoff Predictions

    I'd like to think Dallas gets in but I view the win over the Saints as this team doing nothing other than yanking my chain. And it's ironic they'll have to beat Philly to get in...so long as they don't lay an egg against the Redskins.

    Mark it down! Cowboys get the #3 seed!

    Re: NFL Playoff Predictions

    Well Miami coming out and laying an egg in the 1st half really killed them.

    Otherwise I think my picks are looking good. I still think the Cowboys take care of the Eagles at home next week and get the #3 seed.

    Re: NFL Playoff Predictions

    **************Time for updates!!! **************************

    AFC

    Bengals over Jets. Jet's looked great last night and Rivas might be the best cornerback ever but I think the Bengals make Sanchez throw more this game and he throws a couple to many INT's that they can't make up for

    Baltimore over NE. With Welker out the Ravens can allow for Ed Reed to shadow Randy Moss a little more. Edelman is a good ball player but he is no Welker. Baltimore is to balanced for NE and they win a close one on the road
    ..............................
    Colts over Ravens. I predicted the Ravens to beat them above but I am changing my pick now

    Chargers over Bengals. Same as above. Earlier I predicted the Bengals. Now I don't feel as good about the upset
    .............................
    Colts over Chargers. Chargers have had the Colts number lately but the Colts seem to find a way to win this year


    NFC
    Dallas over Eagles. Tough to beat a team 3 times in a year? Well according to the guys on Fox it has happenend 12 out of 19 times. Dallas is the better team and they are at home. As long as Romo plays within himself they win this one by 10+. But you know the Eagles are going to blitz and blitz a lot!

    Cardinals over Packers. We have seen this before. We actually saw it a year ago. Everyone is down on the Cardinals as they enter the playoffs and they go out and win.
    ....................................
    Vikings over Cowboys. Vikings are a different team at home and I think they found their game again (offensively) the last 1 1/2 game.

    Cardinals over Saints. If the Cardinals players are healthy (mostly Comrartie) I like their chances at pulling the upset
    ....................................
    Vikings over Cardinals. Rematch game but this time at Minnesota

    ......................................
    Super Bowl
    Vikings over Colts. Homer pick? Probably. But I really think they are the more complete team
