So last week in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs I picked Oakland, Seattle, Pittsburgh, and New York and went 2 of 4. Let’s see if I can get it right this week!
Seattle Seahawks @ Atlanta Falcons
My Pick: Falcons
Last time these two teams met, Richard Sherman tackled Julio Jones while the ball was in the air preventing him for being able to catch the ball on the last play of the game stopping Atlanta from getting into field goal range. This is called pass interference and he got away with it. Because of this, I don’t think Atlanta will lose this time.
Houston Texans @ New England Patriots
My Pick: Patriots
Maybe the Texans are for real, but I can’t see them beating a healthy Patriots team in New England. Tom Brady and company have too many tools on that offense. Although Houston’s defense is good, I don’t think it’s good enough to keep up with the Patriots Offense.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Kansas City Chiefs
My Pick: Chiefs
Of course I would pick KC. But putting my fandom and being a KC native aside, I think the Chiefs will win and heres why. It’s a playoff game, in Arrowhead Stadium. Which for those of you who don’t know, that IS the loudest stadium in the NFL.(Sorry Seattle.) My next reason is that The Chiefs are healthy. When KC played The Steelers in September, they got embarrassed. A large part of that was because of a lack of health. They had no Justin Houston, Jamaal was just coming back from injury, and Spencer Ware was hurt. One other note to realize about this game is that your boy Big Ben has a walking boot on one of those legs. #gochiefs
Green Bay Packers @ Dallas Cowboys
My Pick: Green Bay
Aaron Rodgers looked good last week. I mean scarily good. Which is bad news for Dallas because their only losses this year have been from The New York Giants, the team Green Bay beat last week….
