The NFL playoffs resume today and tomorrow. This weekend's match ups promise to be good games. The winners this weekend will advance do the NFC and AFC Title Games. Let's take a look and make some predictions.
The first game is Saturday between the Seattle Seahawks and the Atlanta Falcons. The game will be played in Seattle but I think their luck has ran out. Matt Ryan and the high-powered offense is going to be too much for the Seattle defense.
The prediction: Atlanta 25, Seattle 21.
The night game on Saturday is the New England Patriots hosting the Houston Texans. The last time these two teams met New England had a third-string quarterback and still won 27-0. I won't spend much time talking about this game because it won't take much time for New England to dispose of the Texans. The bright side for Houston is this one will not be shut out.
The prediction: New England 34, Houston 10.
Sunday Green Bay travels to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. This will be the most competitive game of the weekend. It will also be a shootout. Dallas is led by two rookies who have never tasted NFL playoff action before. The way they handle this change will directly affect the outcome of the game. On the other side Aaron Rodgers is on fire. He has the rest of the Packers believing this is their year. And if they can get past the Cowboys it may just be true.
The prediction: Green Bay 14, Dallas 13.
The final game of this weekend's playoffs was moved to Sunday night due to weather. The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs. This will be another excellent game that will be decided in the final minutes. I was wrong last week going against Pittsburgh, so that won't happen this week.
The Prediction: Pittsburgh 17, Kansas City 16.
