TOUCHDOWN! Get An Inside Look At The NFL’s Biggest Games
You may think that the most wonderful time of the year is just wrapping up, but GUESS WHAT. It is just getting started! The NFL playoff season is upon us.
The first round of playoffs was pretty predictable, but this next round has NFL fans on their toes! Let’s check out the match-ups we have for this weekend.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons
Looking at the stats of these two teams, it’s pretty much a toss-up. Seattle’s seeded #3 (BARELY!) with a record of 10-5-1. They are gearing up to play #2 seed, Atlanta whose record is 11-5. If the Seahawks dominate the way they did against the Lions, possession of the ball for 37 minutes of the 60 minute game, then they’ll be in pretty great shape. However, with the recent injuries on the Seahawks, the Falcon’s killer offense, may just be able to squeeze through for a win. My prediction for the game though? SEAHAWKS.
Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots
If we were just to look at week three – we all know who would win this game. The Patriots came out on top with a 27-0 win over the Texans; have the Texans learned from the mistakes of that game? The Texans currently have a record of 10-7 while the Patriots are at 14-2. While I would like to give you random stats that show that the Texans stand a chance – they simply don’t exist! If the Patriots win this game, they will be the first NFL team to win six consecutive conference championships. Is it too obvious who my pick is for this game? PATRIOTS.Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
This one is tough. We got the Steelers with a record of 11-5 and the Chiefs with a record of 12-4. Alex Smith, quarterback for the Chiefs, is ranked third (in wins – after Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, obviously!); this is obviously a perk. Take a look at the Steelers though… they had to fight their way into the playoffs and don’t look like they are slowing down anytime soon. My pick? STEELERS.Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys
Aaron Rodgers has led the Packers to seven straight wins. HOWEVER, on October 16th, the Cowboys did quite a thorough job of defeating the Packers (30-16). Back to the Packers… Jordy Nelson just received a rib injury (14 touchdowns). While this will hurt the Packers, I think they will pull together just fine. I say PACKERS win!I don’t feel confident enough to say who will win it all, but looking at momentum, I feel confident saying that it will be either the Green Bay Packers or the Pittsburgh Steelers winning the Super Bowl this year!!
