Divisional Playoff Predictions – Pluck the Falcons!

I went 4 for 4 last week and hope I get the same out come today, but I only REALLY care about one game!

Saturday

Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers: The Ravens rolled into the Chiefs stadium last week and handed them the ONLY blowout game of the Playoffs.  The are driven and determined.  I expect to see a closer game this week in Pittsburgh, but the Steelers should pull it out.  Ravens 21 Pittsburgh 27

Green Bay Packers vs Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons are hosting the Packers for the second time this season..the first time, the Pack lost in a heart breaker with a last second FG.  This time….things will be different.

The last time these teams met up, Rodgers was the leading rusher for the game. Now, “Some body has a running game” (In my best Happy Gilmore voice)… Starks + Jackson + Kuhn = Rushing TD’s.

Add that to our powerhouse offense, our Beast Tsunami – Matthews, Bishop, Hawk and Raji;  going after cute little Matt Ryan… and our second to none secondary of Collins, Woodson, and Tramon (Da Man) Williams.. and it’s a team that’s going to give the Dirty Birds more than they can handle!  Packers 24 Falcons 17

Sunday

Seattle Seahawks vs Chicago Bears: I think the nation was stunned last week when the ‘Hawks beat the Saints, they had the game of their lives. Can they keep up the intensity and carry them through to the NFC Championship game? It’s hard not to think the cards might lay in their favor.  The Bears have been enjoying a nice long break from game play, and we all know what bears do in winter, they hibernate.  With that, I’m going with the underdog.  Seahawks 21 Bears 14

New York Jets vs New England Patriots: I had a dream a few weeks back that the Packers and Jets were in the Super Bowl.  I’m just going to go ahead with that prediction (We’ll soon find out if I am just a dreamer or if I had a premonition) Jets 27 Patriots 24
