i can't see either of these games being close…I think Brady will carve up the Indy Defense and when they correct to stop the pass, they will run. Belicheck throws some of his exotic schemes at Luck and he throws 2 mistakes…Pats win big, 38-17

The only people celebrating more than Packer fans were Seattle fans. I thought Dallas presented much bigger matchup issues for Seattle….GB a totally different team on the road than at home (9-0 vs 4-4) and Rodgers was healthy in week one and couldn't do anything against Seattle….Dallas gashed the GB defense on the ground, expect much more from Seattle (Romo doesn't run, Wilson does). Seattle has to love the fact that Matthews is on the inside, opens up the ends for his pistol formations….GB will not run on Seattle, so now all the load is on Rodgers with one leg vs the best secondary in football. That is not a pretty picture, could get ugly fast….Seattle wins 34-13

On the plus side, Pats/Sea would be a great SB buildup….Brady vs the Seattle defense and how NE's defense contains Wilson….should be fun

Although I would love to see the Colts win, I think Mr. Luck's luck might have run out this year. I hope I'm wrong. I'm very worried about Mr. Rodgers' calf injury. I really don't think the Packers have a chance in Seattle without him being 100%.

Seahawks
Patriots

New England wins on their home field.
Luck and the Colts are hot right now and should cause some damage against a suspect Pats secondary as Revis is over rated and Browner is penalty prone...but Brady offensive punch will out score the Colts in a high scoring game.

Seattle will win at home.
Green Bay seems to be a one dimensional team as their running game was almost a non factor against the Cowboys which will play right into Seattle run defense's hands. Rodgers inability to limp out side of the pocket will help the Seahawks secondary. Like Dallas took advantage of a weak Green Bay secondary so will Wilson. Close game thru three quarter with Seattle pulling away late.

...did anybody actually watch this game?

Lacy ran for over 100 yards (again) with a 5.3 average per carry lol.

I'm a Pats fan and traveled to Indy for the game back in Nov. Although I don't expect the Pats to rush for 200+ yards again, they soundly thumped the Colts in their building at Lucas Oil Stadium.

I think the Colts victory yesterday was more about the uninspired play from the Denver Broncos. I don't think the Patriots will collapse like Denver did.

Patriots 38 - Colts 20

I'm going with a Seattle vs New England Super Bowl. Aaron Rodgers is not 100% healthy going up against a tenacious #1 rank defense on the road and in a very loud stadium. Seattle is a much better defense than what Dallas had. Would love to see the colts get in, but I don't think they will get by the Patriots.

Seattle is good, I get it, but Lacy was more than a non-factor with 100 yards and with half the snaps. They took him out because his asthma was bothering him. I think he was in for 35 or so and they ran 68.

Only 19 times and almost nothing in the 2nd half until they were trying to kill the clock at the end....McCarthy seemed to make a concerted effort to hand the ball to Rodgers starting the 2nd half, turning them into a one dimensional team on Rodgers shoulders (not saying it was the wrong decision, they won)....Seattles run defense is a whole lot better than Dallas' run defense and Sherman is in Rodgers head....Rodgers was healthy week one, if GB cant run and Rodgers cant scramble, this could get ugly quick on Sunday

What does the amount of carries Lacy had have to do with the success he had running the football... I dont get it.

MASON CROSBY IS AN INEFFECTIVE FIELD GOAL KICKER WHEN HE ISN'T GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES TO KICK... lol.. Ummm yeah.

Anytime you average 5.3 yards a carry, you are having phenomenal success running the football.

I also like how nobody is mentioning the fact that our center had his first career start in Seattle in week one. Since then, he has proven himself to be ridiculously good at run blocking along with Sitton and Lang.

Rodgers certainly looked good this week when he went 10/10 on his last ten throws... With over 300 yards passing and 3 tds... But I guess that means nothing too.
