Sowing's Divisional Picks

Went 4-0 in the wildcard round. This week looks much harder to discern.
1The Guessing Game
Holy Crow

Seahawks (11-5-1) at Falcons (11-5): First off, may God have mercy on my picks this week. 3 out of 4 games this week are virtual pick 'ems. Here, we get a team with defense and playoff experience on its side going against a team with offense, a bye, and home field on its side. They played earlier this year in Seattle and it was a 2 point 'hawks win. I don't feel like either of these teams are superbowl caliber so...should I just find a quarter and flip it? If I've gotta dig deep, I think Seattle's defense offers a stingier test than Atlanta is used to from the NFC South, and when all else fails we all know what wins championships. Also, Matt Ryan is 1-4 all time in the playoffs. But then again, that one win was against the Seahawks. Also, Seattle was held in check by Detroit for the vast majority of that wildcard game! *pulls hair*, Tails! Prediction: Falcons 28-24.
Welcome to: Our House

Texans (10-7) at Patriots (14-2): First off, may God have mercy on the Texans. Brock Osweiller leading a 9-7 team that shouldn't be in the playoffs to begin with straight into the heart of Mordor, where the dark lord sees all? I'd give Frodo a better chance to be honest, at least after all the embarrassment he'd be able to slip the ring on and disappear. I'll elaborate on why this will be a blowout even though I shouldn't have to. Third string QB Jacoby Brissett led New England to a shut out of Houston earlier this year, now Brady is playing. Blount is having one of the best years of his career. Brady is hungry for a fifth ring so he can finally bask in definitive statements about him being the GOAT over Joe Montana. New England is 22-9 in the playoffs under Brady/Belichick. The Pats defense quietly finished in the top 10. You get the point... Prediction: Patriots 35-13.
3Bleeding Kansas
Dead Under Decor

Steelers (12-5) at Chiefs (12-4): Okay, back to the real games. Did you SEE what Pittsburgh did to Miami? How much do you think Andy Reid is shitting himself right now? I love the Chiefs this year, especially at home, and think they are more of a legit contender than in recent seasons. But sometimes you just have terrible luck, and playing a red hot Pittsburgh qualifies as exactly that. The main way I see KC edging Pitt is if Roethlisberger is slowed/hampered by that ankle sprain, although all reports indicate that he's going to be just fine. The Steelers obliterated the Chiefs 43-14 earlier this year, and while I think this will be a MUCH closer battle, I just don't think KC can match up with Pittsburgh's absurd offensive talents. Prediction: Steelers 26-17.
4Job for a Cowboy

Packers (11-6) at Cowboys (13-3): Before I say anything else, I just want to note how hilarious it would be if the Cowboys won this on a pass to Dez Bryant that was ruled incomplete, but then overturned to a touchdown. Lol irony. Anyway, I think Dallas' defense isn't capable of shutting down Rodgers, even for a half, like the Giants did. I also don't think Rodgers will have the ball nearly as often though, with Elliott smashing through every hole punched by that freakish O-line. Not entirely sure I trust Prescott yet as an ice-veined playoff QB, although he's handled himself admirably in every situation thrown his way thus far. There's just something different about the finality of 4th and 10, convert or go home. If the game comes down to that, I like Green Bay - but I don't think it will. Dallas builds a lead steadily over the first half, and Rodgers gets the Pack back into it in the second half for a thrilling finish. Prediction: Cowboys 30-28.
