All these games kind of seem like mismatches too me, GB/PHI excepted, not that one of the other 3 can't come up with an upset or anything; just that I feel it would actually be a substantial upset - rather than 2 evenly matched teams squaring off.

I don't really know why everyone on ESPN seems to fall in love with the Jets, considering that they lost 3 of their last 5 games, and Mark Sanchez is still vastly overrated. I can't see the Jets winning at all at Indy, Peyton Manning is still the QB for the Colts, they finally found a running game, and the Jets don't play very well on the road at all. People need to stop treating them like they are the reincarnation of the '85 Bears, and realize how fraudulent they really are.

As for the Ravens and Chiefs matchup, I really wanted to go with the Chiefs at home, but with an 0-3 home playoff record since 1994, and Baltimore winning so many playoff games on the road, I had to go with the Ravens.

Saints and the Seahawks, this one is a joke, enough said.

The reason why I picked the Eagles over Green Bay is because I don't believe Rodgers will get it done when it matters most. Their defense may make it close, but with no running game to speak of, the Packers aren't really that threating to anyone else, not to mention they'll be on the road throughout the playoffs, and they have a piss poor record on the road.

Though a Jets loss and a Ravens win, would secure Ravens-Patriots round 2, which would probably be epic.

Technically, it would be Ravens-Patriots Round 3, considering the regular season matchup that the Pats won in overtime. This time, I can't imagine that the Ravens would beat down the Patriots at all, if anything, the Patriots could easily drop at least 38 on Baltimore's D, given the chance. Considering how much they carved up the rest of the league, the rest of the AFC teams aren't as scary as most people want to imagine.

Steelers can't win in New England, nor can they even keep up on the offensive side of the ball.

The Patriots would surely remember last year's beatdown at the hands of the Ravens, you better believe they're going to get some payback for that.

Last time the Jets went to New England, they got slaugtered 45-3, I don't think it's going to be any different if they do get this far.

Colts are too banged up to stand with the Patriots toe to toe on either side of the ball.

The Chiefs may have the best shot to defeat New England, with their running game and Matt Cassel, but I don't think they'll ever get that chance.

The Aggies started out great, but haven't really done much since the first quarter. The turnovers really killed them. I'm hoping they win, but it's going to be difficult when they are down by 14 in the 4th.

Here's my picks for the entire playoffs to show how wrong I am in February.

Last year's Super Bowl Champions are losing 31 to 20 to the team that has the worst regular-season record (7-9) of any Playoff Team in history. Only in America...

Saints lost 41-36 to the 7-9 Seahawks, which proves that the Saints' Super Bowl win last year was largely a fluke. Something tells me that this is the 2010's version of the St. Louis Rams, who only won 1 Super Bowl, choked another one, and crashed and burned ever since.

Then again, this isn't the first time this season that the Saints played down to their competition, which is embrassing if you ask me.

The Saints should not be called a bad team for this loss at all, and their win was no fluke. The Seahawks earned this win more than anything else. Hasselbeck had a career game and that entire team buckled down and put on a great performance. At the end of the day a team with as much on their back as Seattle is a force of nature and you just can't win.

Let's hope they send Chicago home crying too so that the Bears can stop kidding themselves.

To be honest I'm not surprised that the Seahawks won. This Saints team wasn't all that good, having lost to the Cards and the Browns of all teams this season, as well as having to go on the road.

It's nice they won, but don't see them beating either the Bears or Falcons next week. Great run by Lynch; pity he didn't run like that for the Bills. :P

Bad losses to the Browns and Cardinals, Drew Bress throwing over 20 picks and losing to a 7-9 team in the playoffs says otherwise. I know that they have 11 wins overall, but you just can't lose to a bad team like that, even at their place, and expect to be treated seriously.

The Seahawks earned this win more than anything else. Hasselbeck had a career game and that entire team buckled down and put on a great performance.

That may be, but at the same time, why did it take them so long to finally have that type of performance? I know Marshawn Lynch was overdue for a huge play, but other than that, the Saints had this game on a silver platter, and didn't capatialize when it mattered most.

At the end of the day a team with as much on their back as Seattle is a force of nature and you just can't win.

Calling Seattle a force of nature is like saying the sky is green and down is up, let's face the facts here, They are a bad team in a shitty division, and their luck is gonna run out very soon, As I said before, even a blind squirrel can find a nut once in a while.

Let's hope they send Chicago home crying too so that the Bears can stop kidding themselves.

I seriously hope you're kidding, Chicago is far better on defense than the Saints, and it is going to be at their house. I know that Jay Cutler is the most schizophentic QB in the league in terms of production, but to think that they can carve up the Bears D like they did with the Saints is laughable.

Patriots lost to the Browns also, so did the Ravens, but no you're right, they aren't threats at all. Each game is a new one, you can look back all you want but in the end the games of the past only give you an idea of what to expect, is it possible New Orleans were lax and let this one slip? Yes, as evident by their near comeback, but they were just as dangerous as any other team in the playoffs.

Every team has these kinds of games, they've struggled with injuries among other things, but at the end of the day the Seahawks are a team that plays in the playoffs. If I remember correctly they've never had a first round bye since their Superbowl run or before it, but they win playoff games. That's just what seems to happen for the Seahawks.

I meant they were in this game, they could easily falter for a number of reasons next week, but they proved that they are a legitimate threat. Seattle simply had more to play for in a sense, it's not that the Saints didn't care or anything, but Seattle wanted it more, and they proved it.

I seriously hope you're kidding, Chicago is far better on defense than the Saints, and it is going to be at their house. I know that Jay Cutler is the most schizophentic QB in the league in terms of production, but to think that they can carve up the Bears D like they did with the Saints is laughable.

They already beat them once this year, and counting a team entirely out of a game is far more laughable then anything I could suggest.

Hello, I regret to inform you that Puddinn64 passed away today at the end of the NFL game between the Colts and Jets. The cause of death was nonstop laughter at the fact that both Super Bowl teams from last year got eliminated from the playoffs in today's games. The funeral will be held during the Super Bowl.

A great start to the play-offs this year, though frustratingly I can't watch any of the games as they aren't shown on terrestrial TV here in the UK. As a Broncos fan I obviously have to favour the underdogs, and as I can't stand the Patriots or Steelers I will be willing on absolutely anyone but them (the Colts would also have been in that list, but they did the decent thing and lost).

The only games we get here, besides the match at Wembley which is rather irrelevant now, are the Sunday night games. As such there are a few play-off teams I haven't seen at all this year (Falcons, Chiefs, Bears). By far the best teams I have seen, at least in the games that have been televised, are the Packers and Eagles, and it will be whichever of those two that wins that I will be rooting for, along with the rank outsiders (go Seahawks!).

Looking forward to the Super Bowl (I've not missed one for 10 years now, and that will be televised at least!), and hopefully a win for a team that hasn't been there for a few years.

Well, tomorrow is the day that I have been waiting for all my life. Auburn is going to get a chance to win the BCS title that will be our first in a very long while. After we got shammed and slammed out ending as #3 in 2004 I always thought that we need another shot at this and we got in this time.

Now, I just hope that we win.

one day...

Was really suprised at the Jets games last night , Thought the Colts would surely win but the Jets really pulled together and got the upset. On another note here is my version of what reverend posted:

AFC Divisional:
2 Pittsburgh <---
3 Indianapolis

1 New England <---
4 Kansas City

NFC Divisional
1 Atlanta <-----
6 Green Bay

2 Chicago <---
5 New Orleans
---
AFC Championship

---

So, Philadelphia lost to Green Bay. What a shame. I wanted to see Mike Vick redeem himself and make it to the top.

That puts my record for this weekend at 1-3. Not good, not good at all. Maybe I should quit the football predicting game...

Even though I picked Philly, I wasn't really that surprised that Green Bay won at all. But I still don't believe they are getting any farther than the Divisional Round because they have a piecemeal running game, which you can't really get away with that beyond the first round.

Wow, The Chiefs got blown out of the water the way they did was a shock to me. I picked the Ravens to win, but it looked like KC gave up after the 2nd quarter, and didn't even bother to stop Baltimore on either side of the ball. Going 0-7 in the playoffs since 1994 is pretty painful, although the Chiefs are a young team with a lot to build on, it's obvious that they are not there yet, considering that beatdown laid upon them by the team that is named after a poem by the world's first emo, Edgar Allen Poe.

All of the Divisional Round games are going to be rematches of regular season games, most notably in the AFC where they are all divisional showdowns, {Steelers vs. Ravens & Patriots vs. Jets} which are much akin to boxing trilogies, {e.g. Ali vs. Frazier}.

The one I'm looking forward to would be the Seahawks vs. Bears, because it's going to be the matchup between the team that shouldn't be there vs. the Monsters of the Midway, even though I would expect that the Bears will blow out the Sea chickens easily.

Auburn won 22-19, with thanks to Dyer's run in the 4th quarter, when everything looked like it was in slow motion after the tackle.

I'm sure Cootie is partying with excitement in the streets of Auburn, Alabama right now.
