After going 4-0 with last week's Wild Card predictions, I've decided to try it for this weekend's games. The divisional round usually offers some of the best games of the playoffs. Below are my quick picks for the weekend.
Saints @ 49ers
The 49ers are a great story, but Drew Brees has been putting up crazy numbers. The SanFran D will hold him....to just under 400 yards. The Saints win this one easily.
Broncos @ Patriots
Tom Brady and the Patriots made Tim Tebow and the Broncos look silly just a few weeks ago in Denver.. Noone in their right mind would pick the Broncos to win this game. That is exaclty why I am... Tebow Mania lives on for yet another week.
Texans @ Ravens
If the Ravens were on the road I would be a little worried. Lucky for them, they get to play in the friendly confines of M&T Bank Stadium surrounded by 70,000 purple-clad maniacs. Two good defenses will keep this one a close, low-scoring affair. Baltimore prevails.
Giants @ Packers
Only the Patriots defense was worse than Green Bay this year. The Giants can control the clock with their run game and Eli Manning can sling it when necessary. This Packers team is vulnerable, even with the home field advantage. Both teams will probably put up over 30 points, with the Giants finishing on top.
