Saturday

Titans vs Chiefs

Falcons vs Rams

 

Sunday

Bills vs Jags

Panthers vs Saints

 

Who do you think will win these games? Can anybody go 11-0?

 

*this little game is probably is not allow in this section. If not then delete. I thought maybe the guys who still frequent this board could have a little pick-em playoff games.

Chiefs 27-10, you beat the Chiefs through the air, and Tennessee does not have the QB nor the WR to pull this off.  They will fall right into the strength of the KC defense.

 

Falcons 23-20, I think the entire NFC is a fraud besides New Orleans.  Atlanta's defense has been playing real well, and I'm not sure McVeigh will be able to diagnose it at the line of scrimmage before the 25 second mark, leaving Goff on his own, which I think will end up disastrous.  That said, I don't think highly of Matt Ryan either, but I think they are able to muster up enough to get the win here, with Julio having over 150 yds receiving.

 

Bills 19-10, the Jags are in free-fall, and were over-confident based on their league worst schedule.  The Bills have a solid pass defense, so this will be a grinding game.  Ultimately, I think Bortles is good for 3 turnovers, and Taylor usually plays error free ball, and moves the ball just enough for a handful of field goal attempts.

 

Saints 27-21, this will be the best game of the weekend, and an unfortunate matchup as I think both could run the table in the NFC.  Saints at home with the league best run game is just too tall of an order for the Panthers to overcome.

Chiefs

Falcons

 

Bills

Saints

 

Chiefs and Saints at home are locks imo. Bills are riding an emotional high and I think they can get one. Jags have looked bad recently, and it is mostly due to the play of Bortles. Falcons have the playoff experience. They snuck their way in. I think the Rams/Falcons game could easily go either way.

Historically Andy Reid almost never loses the 1st playoff game. He was undefeated at one point. Also factor in how difficult it is to play in KC.

He also had an amazing record coming off of bye weeks, that didn't matter this year.

He hasn't had the same sustained success in KC that he he had until 2009 in Philly (the year after Jim Johnson passed away), but I still love the Chiefs in their match up in the wild card round.

Chiefs - Since Andy Reid gave up play calling, the Chiefs' offense has been lighting it up.  Titans do have a solid run game so they will need to lean on Alex Smith.  Can the Titans keep up on offense? With the way they have been playing, I highly doubt they will be able to keep up at Arrowhead

 

Rams - Falcons have playoff experience but they are coming in very banged up.  As long as the Rams don't shoot themselves in the foot, they should be able to win.  Wade Phillips will dial it up against a Falcons' offense that has been inconsistent all year.

 

Jags - No McCoy, no chance I would say

 

Saints - they own Cam Newton and the Panthers this season.  Strong run game and their defense matches up well vs Cam.  Home game to boot.

Chiefs. (Tennessee is one of the worst teams to make the playoffs in years).

Rams (Falcons just really aren't very good).

Bills (Jax is a fraud).

Panthers (Carolina stuffs the run, Drew's arm won't be able to beat them through the air.  Carolina is hot, Saints backed in with a BAD loss to Tampa.  Cam is always a defensive scheme buster because of what he can do with his legs).

Yup.  Those of us in Survivor/Knock out leagues know all too well about his 16-2 record coming off a bye.

 

I like the Chiefs though.  Mariota just isn't getting it done this year.

Rams.  They are well-rested playing an Atlanta team that is a shell of what they were last year.  Apparently Shanny does matter.

Bills.  More a bet against the erratic Blake Bortles than anything.

Saints.  Not because of Brees, but because of Kamara and Ingram doing the damage.
