The NFL Divisional Round Prediction/Discussion Thread

Discussion in 'Sports' started by Danielson, Jan 7, 2013.

  1. Alright fellas, I went 3-1 last week. Let's see how our Divisional Round projections go.

    First game on tap

    Saturday, Jan 12th 4:30 EST

    Ravens @ Broncos - Ray Lewis had his final home game of his career last week in a win over the colts. The defense only allowed 9 points to a good offense. Now they will play the guy Andrew Luck replaced. Unfortunately for them, The Broncos are much better defensivly.

    Prediction - Denver Broncos

    Saturday, Jan 12th 8:30 EST

    Packers @ 49ers - The packers were clicking on all cylinders last week, which was to be expected against a team will virtually no passing game. The 49ers are one hell of a defensive team, and if anyone can stop the Packs offense, this will be the team.

    Prediction - San Fransico 49ers

    Sunday, Jan 13th 1:00 EST

    Seahawks @ Falcons - The Seahawks D really stepped it up after allowing 14 first quarter points. Was this because the inneffectiveness of an injured RG3? Or are these guys for real? The Falcons have been known choke artists in the playoffs and only put up 2 points in a loss last year. Will this bet he year the Falcons finally get Matt Ryan a playoff win?

    Prediction - Seattle Seahawks

    Sunday, Jan 13th 4:30 EST

    Texans @ Patriots - Two years in a row the Texans have taken out the Bengals in the first round. Now they will be seriously tested against one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, in foxborough. I do think the Texans are great but how can anyone pick against Brady, at home, in January?

    Prediction - New England Patriots
  2. Picking Seattle to upset? That's the only game that's up in the air for me. All the other games i agree with, even though I'm a Ravens fan and would like to see my favorite player ever ride out with one last superbowl win but i doubt Joe flacco will score enough points to make it interesting for Peyton and the Broncos.

    The big question is what falcons team will we see. We know the Seahawks are legit, will we see if the falcons are a fraud again like last year.

    ~Three Said That~
  3. I like what you said about Atlanta, and I believe they are frauds. Their schedule was pretty cupcake if you look at it.
  4. The Packers are going to win, count on that shit.
  5. I beg to differ but best of luck brother.
  6. @"Respect Gohan6425" What do you think?
  7. I have a feeling Baltimore will play a good game in Denver and make it interesting. Seattle/Atlanta is good as well. New England will roll, and I think Green Bay wins in San Francisco rather easily.
  8. I only took one upset pick according to vegas. I probably will go 1-3 this week. I doubt all the home teams will win like i projected. We will see
  9. With you on all 'cept I have the Packers winning. I think it'll be a close game though.
  10. Yeah, I just hope it's better than the crap we watched last week
  11. I really, really hope the Packers win on Saturday. Thankfully the 49ers seemed to be on the decline near the end of the regular season and lately it seems like having a bye week doesn't seem to be a benefit.

    As far as the other games are concerned, I think Denver, Atlanta, and New England will win.
  12. I'm just skeptical of the Packers after their piss poor performance in the divisional round last year. They were smoked out of their own building. If anyone can stop rodgers it would be that 49ers D. Whoever wins this game is going to the superbowl.
  13. Yeah I don't blame you. Sometimes the Packers seem off on offense and sometimes the defense doesn't hold up against the big play. Both teams are great so I'm excited to see what happens.
  14. How do you feel about the other games?
  15. I see Denver, Atlanta, and New England winning. I think all of the home teams but anything is possible in the playoffs.
  16. HotLanta choke in the playoffs. Maybe ithis year they can win one, but I say :no:

    12 is going to do work like he always does, and Matthews is going to bury some people. I agree, whoever wins this is going to the superbowl...really hoping it's vs Denver.
  18. Well good luck because as long as NFC wins, i'm on board
  19. Will anyone be discussing this with me tomorrow and sunday?
  20. I' down :smug:
