Seahawks @ Falcons - Falcons are overrated.

Texans @ Patriots - This is Hello Kitty @ Jeffrey Dahmer. Houston really sucks and they are lucky to play in a bad division and even luckier to have played the wild card game against the Carr-less Raiders. I hate NE but even I will enjoy this game because they didn't deserve to be in the playoffs to begin with.

Steelers @ Chiefs - should be an interesting game. I think the Chiefs choke but I could be underestimating them.

Packers @ Cowboys - Aaron Rodgers was so clutch tonight. I think he takes it against an inexperienced Dallas QB. Prescott will be back, but not in his first year.

  • Patriots over Texans (Best team in the NFL should not lose this one)
  • Steelers over Chiefs (I'll take Brown, Bell, and I don't trust KC)
  • Packers over Cowboys (looked good against the Giants, and Rodgers should shred the Cowboys D)
  • Seahawks over Falcons (I like Ryan, but Seattle is playoff tested)

Lots of away team picks. Rested legs, no travel, & home field advantage is big in the NFL. I'd say home teams win 3/4 next week. I'm not sure what 3 that'll be though.

I don't like Seattle's chances at Atlanta. Long flight, 3 time zone changes, less rested, playing on the road.

Either Steelers or Packers will rip one away. Too tough to call right now.

I'm not as familiar with the AFC stadiums, but isn't Arrowhead a real tough place to play? Or is that all media hype? Don't they have the record for the loudest stadium?

I agree with these picks, and the Texans will take a butt whipping up there in New England .

The only no doubter (IMO) is the Patriots over the Texans. The other 3 are toss ups and can go either way.

I like the Falcons over the Seahawks. The Seahawks have been inconsistent all year and I like the Falcons at home with that powerful offense.

I lean towards the Steelers in KC but only because I am not sold on Alex Smith outplaying Big Ben.. of course he doesn't have to for KC to win but the Steelers would have to turn the ball over a few times otherwise, i think the Steelers win.

I hope the Cowboys beat the Packers. This one is the hardest to gauge because of Dak. Dak has answered every question so far but he will have to answer another next Sunday... can he play well under pressure (Playoff Pressure). No doubt the Pack will stack the box in an effort to stop Zeke and put the onus on Dak to beat them with the pass. I think he can.. i think he will dink, dunk, hit a few deep balls and pick up more yards running than he has all year.. if he does all this without any turnovers, i like the Cowboys chances. Rodgers is gonna do what Rodgers does.. (300 yards, 3 TDS: 25-30 points..) This game will be decided by how Dak plays against the Packers defense...

Patriots - Will this game even be close?
Falcons - Seahawks have not been a good road team this year and are so inconsistent
Chiefs - I know how good the Steelers are but Chiefs might pull this one out
Packers - Will depend on if some of the mash unit can play, stopping Zeke, should be a good game I hope. I'm not putting any importance on the Cowboys already beating the Packers, none. I could be wrong but . Go Pack Go!
