I checked the past 6 years and there has not been a scenerio where the #1 & #2 seeds have played each other in both conferences...are you thinking this year will be any different?

Wild Card Round
Colts vs Bengals-Colts really weren't that impressive this season and just kind of coasted thanks to an easy division. However, they're going against Andy Dalton in the playoffs at home, so I gotta go with the Colts here. They blew the Bengals out 27-0 earlier in the season. Ho Hum! Bengals lose in the first round again.

Steelers vs Ravens-This is a classic rivalry game and the first-round match I'm looking forward to the most. They split during the regular season. Steelers were a Jekyll and Hyde team most of the season, but they seem to have righted ship down the stretch. Ravens kind of limped into the playoffs. While the Ravens are typically a good playoff team, I think momentum is on the side of the Steelers.

Cowboys vs Lions-This is more of a wishful thinking pick. I actually think the Cowboys will win this, but I couldn't bring myself to pick them out of spite for the team. I mean, Matt Stafford is 0-16 on the road against winning teams. That's a staggering stat, and it doesn't look good for the Lions going to Dallas to play a Cowboys team who appear to be clicking on all cylinders. The only good thing is that it's in Arlington where the Cowboys are .500 on the season. Hopefully Romo makes a boneheaded play to lose it.

Panthers vs Cardinals-This is kind of a dud game for the playoffs. I can't believe I'm picking a team with a losing record, but the Panthers are looking good right now, winning their last 4. Cardinals have gone 2-4 since their hot 9-1 start and have sputtered with their injuries, especially at the QB position. It's gotten so bad for the Cardinals that they're pinning their hopes on Drew Stanton to come back and be the saving grace. I think even if Stanton comes back that the Panthers will win this.

Divisional Round
Patriots vs. Colts-A well-rested Patriots team will cruise past the Colts in Foxboro. Colts were a popular pick to win the AFC this year, but I just don't see them getting past the Patriots. Luck would have to have the game of his life. New England won soundly, 42-20, at Indy in the regular season meeting.

Broncos vs. Steelers-This could end up being a really good game, but I give the edge to the Broncos simply because they're going to get a week of much-needed rest and preparation, not to mention, they're undefeated at home this season.

Packers vs. Panthers-A healthy Aaron Rodgers and the Packers put an end to the Panthers season with a blowout win at Lambeau.

Seahawks vs. Lions-If the Lions somehow get past the Cowboys, they will get eliminated by the Legion of Boom. Seahawks are the hottest team in the playoffs right now, winning their last 6 games. Everyone was wondering what was wrong with them earlier in the year, but they've returned to Super Bowl form.

Conference Round
Patriots vs Broncos-Defying all logic, I'm going with Peyton and the Broncos. I know playing in Foxboro is their kryptonite, but I just have a gut feeling about this.

Seahawks vs Packers-If anyone can go into Qwest Field and defeat the mighty Seahawks right now, it's the Packers. Yes, I know that the Packers got it handed to them by the Seahawks in Week 1, but I feel like if the Packers D can keep the Seahawks to 20 pts or less that Rodgers and company can put up just enough to win. Rodgers would be wise to stay away from Richard Sherman's side of the field. He has enough other weapons that I don't think that will be an issue.

Super Bowl
Broncos vs Packers-I think this will be one of the best Super Bowls and that Rodgers will outduel Manning in the desert.

Yeah, green bay would get Dallas or the winner of Carolina Arizona.
Even though Dallas is worse at home I don't see Detroit beating them.

that is correct because the #1 seed will always play the lowest seed (which this year is the Lions at #6)


The only way the Lions and Pack will play again this year would be if they both made it to the NFC Championship round..

Thanks for the info! I didn't understand how the seeding works. I thought the winner of the 4-5 game played the 1 seed and winner of the 3-6 game played the 2 seed, but, of course, the NFL isn't like that. If the 6 seed wins, they play the 1 seed. Well, shoot, I was hoping for a Packers-Lions rematch. I'm pretty sure Seattle and Green Bay will win no matter who the opponent is, but the Cowboys are perfect this season on the road and could give the Packers a challenge.

Once the playoffs start, regular season stuff is out the window. Packers situation will depend if AR is a full go, and able to move out of the pocket. Cowboy fans are convinced because of their road record they are the only team able to hang with Seahawks, dismissing the other four. This is why the games are played, we shall see!
