First prediction: by the 15th post of this thread. I'll explain later. ON TO THE GAMES! Bengals at Texans This is tough. Classic example of hot (Bengals) versus cold (Houston). You have to wonder the mindset of a team that has completely blown it down the stretch. Houston was sitting pretty for home field advantage throughout, and completely let it slip away. I do believe that Cincy will keep it close... just don't know if I have the courage to pick them to win. UPSET SPECIAL!! Cincy keeps the momentum rolling, 24-21. Vikings at Packers Man, the experts are giving Minnesota no love, stating that the Packers they'll see today will be a lot different than, what? 6 days ago? All I know is GB has had no answers for the beast that is known as Adrian Peterson. That said, they are hosting this game, and it's cold and at night. However, GB has hardly been invincible hosting playoff games of late. I'm all over the place, huh? OK, I'll get off the fence... I'll go Packers, 28-24. But certainly wouldn't be surprised to see the Vikes pull it out. Colts at Ravens I think it finally comes crashing back to earth for Luck and the Colts. Too much Ravens experience, and Ray Lewis announcing retirement--that was a cruel trick to play on Indy. Ravens, 30-21. Seahawks at Redskins Here's a prediction: the winner of this game makes it to the NFC championship. I really want the Seahawks to win, though I love RG3 and I have nothing against the Redskins. Shanahan's career playoff record without a guy named Elway at QB? 1 and 4. Hmmm... If this game was in Seattle, I think the Seahawks would win running away. But it's not. So I'll go with them winning a close one: Seattle 28-26. Your picks please!
