NFL Playoff Predictions!

It is finally that time of the year. Honestly I think this may be one of the more interesting post seasons in awhile, with there being an argument for just about every team to make it all the way. But here is my predictions for the playoffs all the way to the Super Bowl. List is digs from the last few months.
1Sonic Youth
Murray Street

[WILDCARD ROUND]. Kansas City Chiefs vs Houston Texans. Kudos to the Chiefs from starting 1-5 to going on a massive win streak, starting the game with a 11-5 record. A game featuring two great defences, in the end I do believe the Chiefs will edge out the Texans thanks in part to the Chiefs simultaneously having more capabilities on offence.
Young Team

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cincinnati Bengals. This is easily the best match-up in the Wild Card Round, being the hardest for me to decide, however with that said I'm actually going to side with the typically unlucky Bengals. Despite the lack of Andy Dalton, back-up AJ McCarron has proven to get the job done in the redhead's absence. While the Steelers are still a GREAT team this year, their defence has been a bit shoddy, and Big Ben hasn't been very healthy too. Regardless, this will more likely than not be the most exciting match-up of the week.
3Animal Collective

Seattle Seahawks vs Minnesota Vikings. I'm going with my gut in this game, and my gut says to side with the Vikings. Despite the Seahawks dominating the Vikings during the regular season, there is this air around the rematch that gives me the impression that the Vikings are more prepared. Also lets not forget that home-field is more important in the playoffs... And that the temps in Minnesota for this game are expected to hit a high of 1 degrees.
4Have a Nice Life

Green Bay Packers vs Washington Redskins. Who would have thought that the Redskins would be in the playoffs at the start of the season? While normally I'd pick the Packers easily and move on, for this particular game I'm siding with Washington. The Packers have not been playing well lately, and to be frank their o-line is bad. Thier secondary can use work too. While Washington is coming in to this game hot from 4 wins in a row and an offence that's clicking.
The Ugly Organ

[DIVISIONALS ROUND] Kansas City Chiefs vs New England Patriots. Chiefs win a shocker. How? New England is just way too banged up. Sure, some of thier players are expected to be back by now, but Brady was limping out of Week 17, and he may still not be in 100% by then. Even so, I do think Kansas City's defence can hold up in this match up.
Frizzle Fry

Cincinnati Bengals vs Denver Broncos. So the Broncos are starting the aging Peyton Manning huh? Yeah I'm going with Cincinnati here again (what? The Bengals actually winning a playoff game, no less 2?). I think the Bengals defence will be the saviours of this game, as Denver's has been falling off a bit as a late. Sure, they do have another week to prepare, but I don't think it'll be enough.
7Hop Along
Get Disowned

Washington Redskins vs Carolina Panthers. Despite all I said about the Redskins for the last round, I think the Panthers will win this game kind of easily. There is a reason why they are 15-1 people.
8Future of the Left
The Plot Against Common Sense

Minnesota Vikings vs Arizona Cardinals. Now this could be a very fun to watch game. Despite the Cardinals lose in Week 17, I believe that was a bit of a fluke, and the Cardinals win out at home against the team that beat their "arch-rivals".

[CONFERENCE ROUND] Kansas City Chiefs vs Cincinatti Bengals. Okay so I'll admit that this scenario is BOLD to begin with, but let's not discuss that now. Who do I pick here? Well, the Chiefs. Their defence will stop the Bengals cold in their tracks.
10Elliott Smith
Roman Candle

Arizona Cardinals vs Carolina Panthers. Now this may be a better game than the Super Bowl itself! In the end, somebody has to move on to the big game, and I think that team will be Arizona. They are a VERY balanced football team, and I think Carson Palmer will figure out a way past the Carolina defence.
11Julia Holter
Loud City Song

[SUPER BOWL 50] Kansas City Chiefs vs Arizona Cardinals. Cardinals win in a closer-than-some-would-think game. Palmer, Fitzgerald finally get the rings they very much deserve.

So yeah, this is my (very very very bold) predictions.
