NFL Playoff Predictions

NFC

Wild Card Round – The Redskins are a good story but are one and done… Seattle beats them going away in the 4th quarter to survive another week. The Giants surprise the Buccaneers and win a low-scoring game by a late field goal. Eli Manning plays very well and leads his team by not giving away the ball as he has all year.  

Divsional Round – The Giants will come in banged up after their tough win over the Bucs… they will get hammered by the well rested Cowboys and Tony Romo will set team passing records. The Packers will host the Seahawks in bitterly cold conditions at famed Lambeau Field. The playoff rematch will not go into overtime this time… Packers win big as Farve throws for at least 4 touchdowns.

Championship Round – The heavyweights of the conference will be ready to take each other on to represent the NFC in Super Bowl XLII. The Cowboys will rediscover their running game as Marion Barber will be the best offensive player on the field. The Packers will fall behind early and Farve will press and turn the ball over which will cost them dearly. The Cowboys win a high-scoring game 43 – 31.

AFC

Wild Card Round – The Titans and Vince Young are just not ready physically and mentally for this matchup with the Chargers. LT and crew will allow HC Norv Turner to breath easy and start their gameplan for the next opponent by the end of the 3rd quarter. The Steelers are very banged up and the Jaguars are physical and very confident that they will beat the Steelers. This will be the best game of the first round because the Steelers are a proud bunch and will rise up to meet the force of the Jags. However, the Jags have too much and will wear down HC Mike Tomlin’s team. Jags win.

Divisonal Round – Great matchups here… the Chargers will go to Indy where they’ve had success in the past. However, they will get their doors blown off as Manning will have his offense in high gear and will get an emotional lift as Marvin Harrison returns… Colts win. The best game of the weekend will be the Jags going to Foxboro… league MVP Tom Brady will be at his best and will find Randy Moss a couple times for long scores. The Jags running game will be successful, but not enough this day. Pats win.

Championship Round – The Patriots will be the favorites over the Colts and we concur. This game will not be as close as you’d like to believe. The Colts just don’t have the (healthy) horses to keep up with this Patriots team. Pats win 34 – 18.

Super Bowl XLII – Patriots vs. Cowboys – Brady vs. Romo – Moss vs. T.O.  – this will go down as one of the most entertaining Super Bowls in NFL history. We will get big plays and lots of points. The Patriots have more experience and superior coaching… Pats win 44 – 37.

    If the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to beat New England, there can’t be any squandered 18-point leads in the fourth quarter, with both sides of the ball going ice cold for nearly the final third of the game. There can’t be costly Garrard interceptions down the stretch, or the suddenly shoddy pass defense that Jacksonville’s secondary displayed during the Steelers’ big comeback. It’s going to take the Jaguars best possible game, and not the 40-minute version we saw Saturday night.

    “The Dallas Cowboys lead the series 54-35-2, but this is the first time the teams have met in the playoffs. Dallas won both games this season, 45-35 in the season opener in Dallas Sept. 9 and 31-20 at Giants Stadium Nov. 11. In the first game, Dallas tore apart a Giants defense that was still learning new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s system. The Cowboys had 476 yards and six touchdowns, including two on passes of more than 45 yards. In the second game, the Giants defense could not stop quarterback Tony Romo (20 of 28, 323 yards, four TDs) and Eli Manning threw two interceptions.”
    From a Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo website.

    Dallas 35 Giants 28..

    Go Boys!!

    “Indianapolis’ track record against 3-4 defenses, including two losses to San Diego, is subpar. Pittsburgh eliminated the Colts from the playoffs in the 2005 season, and New England did the same in 2003 and ’04. Indianapolis averaged 12.6 points in those contests.”
    This is the only thing that scares me about the game this weekend.

    Go Colts
    Indianapolis Colts fan!!
