Yep... Seattle was 8-0 at home... 3-5 on the road.

Skins have won 7 straight.

Still not overlooking a Falcons vs Seahawks showdown next week though... Depends on which Seattle team shows up tomorrow. Having both your teams meet in the playoffs would be cool...

I'm a transplanted southerner who grew up an Atlanta fan and moved to the PNW 2 years ago.

My NFC picks for the weekend

Vikings
SKins


Vikings: Adrian Peterson runs with a attitude which will open up their passing game on a Packers secondary that has shown some weakness this season.

Skins: The Skins has a strong running game which will open things up for RG3 in the passing game against a seattle defense that has given up close to 30 pts on the road this season.

I didn't know Seattle was giving up that amount of points on the road. All the talking heads are picking Seattle to win. HTTR!

The seahawks gave up this amount of points to these teams on the road who do not have a QB as good as RG3

19.....Rams

28......Lions

24......Dolphins.


Those are three teams who are not playing at all in the playoffs which should let you know something about the seahawks defense on the road.

So many people on the Seattle bandwagon, I'm still thinking 'Skins. Watching Texans/Bengals and I'm still thinking Bengals in this one but Texans may hang on, low scoring affair.

Everyone here giving up on the Packers, hmmm??? I know they can't stop AP, but game in MN was 3 points, it wasn't a blowout. With all of Rodgers receivers back, Cobb, Jennings, Finley, Nelson and Jones, it will be tough for Vikings to match up. Some rookies have been playing well with Woodson back, will be interesting to see where he goes. Casey Hayward is an INT machine as a rookie so they won't give Wood that spot. I'm hoping the Packers can do this!

I think whatever team scores the next offensive TD will probably win the game based on how the defenses for both teams are playing. I picked the Vikings because they are playing with house money and have already exceeded expectations. So the pressure will be on the packers to stop a team playing with house money who had Adrian Peterson for their running back. So we will see what happens tonight in lambeaud and i expect a good game like last week.

My pick for the wild card games -

Doesn't matter.
None of these wildcard scrubs stand a chance against the Falcons, Broncos, 49ers, or Patriots!!

The Packers are easily the best of the wildcard teams, but they don't match up well with the 49ers.
