NFL Playoffs are starting this weekend. I would like to hear some other peoples, but here is my predictions

http://www.opensportsbookusa.com/i/brackets/2014-nfl-playoffs-picture.png

First game: Bengals (11-5) and Chargers (9-7)

I'm easily persuaded that the Bengals will win this game. Chargers just barely have a winning record, while the Bengals had a very good year offensively.

Win: Bengals

Second game: Colts (11-5) and Chiefs (11-5)

This game could really go either way in my opinion. I think the Chiefs and Colts both have their offensive and defensive strength, so it may come down to the luck of the game and the coaching ability from each team. I will give it to the Chiefs for now

Win: Chiefs

Third game: 49ers (12-4) and Packers (8-7-1)

Now many of you may think the 49ers would also probably win this game, since their record is substantially better.
However, Aaron Rodgers has just returned for the Packers, giving them a much needed boost that, if they had had the rest of the season, would have made their record quite a bit prettier. However, the 49ers are also a very good team, one of the best in the NFL. So in the end, I think this game will be a lot closer, but 49ers will still win. Fuck de Uprising right?

Win: 49ers

Fourth game: Saints (11-5) vs Eagles (10-6)

What a bunch of close games, but I guess that's the playoffs for ya. This game is no exception, as honestly this game could go either way. The Saints could dominate with their passing game and a pretty good defensive structure, but that is definitely not guaranteed. On the other hand, the Eagles could dominate with their all round passing, running, and defensively stable team. I choose to believe the ladder will prevail over the Saints. Fuck de Governor right?

Win: Eagles


TIME FOR ROUND 2
These games aren't even guaranteed, considering my predictions could be wrong (NOT LIKELY HERHERHER)

Round 2 bracket:
Bengals vs Broncos
Patriots vs Chiefs
49ers vs Panthers
Seahawks vs Eagles

First game: Bengals (11-5) vs Broncos (13-3)

A pretty easy decision for me. The Broncos with Peyton Manning are better than ever, albeit having a defensive star injury. I think they will prevail in a mildly close game.

Win: Broncos


Second game: Patriots (12-4) vs Chiefs (11-5)

This game, not as an easy decision. The Patriots and the Chiefs are both amazing teams, with offensive and defensive swagggg. Coaching is also pretty even on both ends, so man, I don't know. I think I will have to stick with the Chiefs, if they can beat the Colts they can beat the Pats.

Win: Chiefs

Third game: 49ers (12-4) vs Panthers (12-4)

Hm....I will have to say the 49ers will win. They are just an all around amazing team, though the Panthers are as well, yet they seem to be able to overcome them to win. They went last year to the Super Bowl, why not again?

Win: 49ers

Seahawks (13-3) vs Eagles (10-6)

The easiest to determine game of the second round IMO. The Seahawks will crush the Eagles, a good team, but not good enough to stand up to the might of the Seahawks. I might not even watch this game, as I think it will be such a blowout.

Win: Seahawks

Round 3
Even less determinable bracketing

Bracket:
Broncos vs Chiefs
49ers vs Seahawks

Broncos (13-3) vs Chiefs (11-5)

I think this is where the Chiefs luck and skill runs out. The Broncos are just an unstoppable Juggernaut this year, setting offensive records backed by defensive continuity in the good. The Chiefs will be shutdown, the Broncos winning by at least a couple touchdowns in my opinion.

Win: Broncos

49ers (12-4) vs Seahawks (13-3)

This, is why the 49ers aren't going to the Super Bowl this year. While they have skill backed by Frank Gore and Colin Kaepernick, they are not as good as Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, and Richard Sherman. A close game, but a Seahawks win nonetheless I see.

SUPER BOWL:

BRONCOS VS SEAHAWKS, WHY NOT

Will be an amazing game, if it comes down to this. I have no doubt both teams will be amazing and make a great close game, but I feel the Broncos will still win. Peyton Manning, Von Miller, Champ Bailey, Wes Welker, and Brock Osweiler really boost this team greatly. You never know for sure though, as the Seawhawks are an amazing team.

Win: Broncos

Final Score: 24 - 17 (Broncos of course winning)

That's just my see, what have you

I posted this before, but okay.


Kansas City@ Indianapolis- I think resting the starters was a good idea for KC. Dwayne Bowe was cleared to play today, and I think the rest will do the stud defense a lot of good.
New Orleans @ Philadelphia- Saint's on the road. 'Nuff said. Sorry Sparts.
San Diego @ Cincinatti- Andy Dalton sure loves keeping games competitive with all those INT's. However, I don't think King Laserface will be able to overcome the Cincinnati Defense.
San Francisco @ Green Bay- No, this isn't actually just blind Packers hate. Green Bay has a swiss cheese defense, and frankly, none of the NFC North teams deserve a playoff berth. You've all seen the last two games between SF and GB

Kansas City@ Denver- PEEYYTOOON
Philadelphia @ Seattle- This is going to be a close one. I say it'll be decided by a field goal.
Cincinatti @ New England- Fuck the Patriots. That's not my reasoning, but this game will be decided by defense. Namely, the Bengal's amazing one, and the Patriot's less than stellar
San Fransisco@ Carolina- YEAH I SAID IT. Last time these two played against eachother, it was a low-scoring defensive game. I'm putting my money on the Panther's front seven.

Cincinatti @ Denver- PEEEYTTOOOOOON
Carolina @ Seattle- YEAH I SAID IT AGAIN. When these two played earlier this season, the game was decided at the very end. Now that Carolina has found it's identity, I'm going to say the Panther's front seven will abuse the mediocre Seattle O-Line, Luke Kuechly and Co. will contain Lynch, and the secondary is more than a match for the Seahawk's receivers. I think Riverboat Ron will utilize Cam's running ability more in this game, taking away the vaunted Seahawk's secondary advantage.

Denver vs. Carolina- This is going to be THE game. Old school vs New.This is going to be a high scoring game, but Peyton has had the best season ever in recent memory, and their receiving corp will overpower the Carolina secondary.

Brad you got it wrong. It screws up your whole prediction. No offense.

Say the Eagles win, they would play the Panthers. The highest seed remaining plays the #2 seed (Panthers, Eagles would be #3, thus being the highest remaining aside from CAR and SEA obvioulsy)

Then since you have the Niners winning, they'd play Seattle.

Also have it wrong in the AFC. Bengals are #3, Pats are #2. So if the Bengals win, they'd face the Patriots.

Wumbo you failed also.


AFC:
#6 Chargers @ #3 Bengals

Going with the Chargers here. They're hot. Andy Dalton gonna lay an egg yo.

#5 Chiefs @ #4 Colts

Going with the Colts. Chiefs are just all kinds of fucked up right now heading into the playoffs while the Colts are hot. Luck gets his first playoff win.

DIVISIONAL ROUND:
#6 Chargers @ #1 Broncos (LOWEST REMAINING SEED PLAYS THE #1 SEED NIGGAS)

Dat Denver defense doe. Historically speaking, if you look at all top 10 offenses of all time, only ONE of them won the Super Bowl, the 99 Rams. Only two made it to the dance, them and the 07 Pats. Broncos going to go one and done again.

#4 Colts @ #2 Patriots

Colts are going to get trounced by 20+ points in Foxborough.

CHAMPIONSHIP:

#6 Chargers @ #2 Patriots

I think SD wins. Let me explain myself here. I fully believe in chance, and luck, and things of the sort. Have you guys ever heard of the Lincoln Financial curse? Since 2008, every year, the winner of the Super Bowl played the Eagles in Philly's home opener. This year San Diego played the first game in Philly. Did you see how much shit went their way to get into the playoffs? They're going to carry the tradition on because I believe in this freaky shit.

NFC:

#6 Saints @ #3 Eagles

Call me a homer or whatever but I actually think we get our first road playoff win ever here. Get the monkey off our back. The team is tired of hearing about it, expect them to come out strong and win. We also match up really well with the Iggles, and we have experience. They do not. See it being similar to Seattle, who went 3-5 on the road last season yet still got their first road playoff win ever.

#5 49ers @ #4 Packers

Hahahahahahah the Packers don't even deserve to be here. 8-7-1.. really? That division is the definition of mediocre. I mean, come on Detorit, you fugging losers. 49ers in a rout.

DIVISIONAL:

#6 Saints @ #1 Seahawks

I believe I'm a realist, and I don't see us winning here. MUCH closer than last time doe. Something like 27-17 IMO. Seems right to me.

#5 49ers @ #2 Panthers

Panthers win by 3.

CHAMPIONSHIP:

#2 Panthers @ #1 Seahawks

Now if you guys don't know.. there's a "curse" in the NFC as well. Ever since 2006, an NFC team that plays their out of conference games vs the AFC East MAKES the Super Bowl. (While the team that plays in Philly first actually wins it, sometimes it's said NFC team). This year the NFC South played the AFC East, so I think the Panties pull off the upset.

SUPERB OWL XLVIII:

Chargers vs Panthers.

Chargers will win, like I said, carry on the curse.

P.S. fug you guys if the Eagles win I don't really care cuz I'm not expecting Superb Owl this season plus the Iggles are my 2nd fav team.

When we win I can laugh at all of you mwahahahahahaah.

But if we lose I won't even be mad doe cuz my expectations are tempered.

Here are my playoff picks.

Kansas City @ Indianapolis This is probably the closest game of the Wildcard round for me. Both teams have been kind of inconsistent it seems, but the Colts have been slightly more consistent lately.
New Orleans @ Philadelphia Yeah, New Orleans isn't great on the road, but Philly isn't that great at home either. Maybe I'm just biased because I don't like the Eagles, but I think Saints are the stronger team, regardless of where it's being played.
San Diego @ Cincinatti Both of these teams have been really impressive this year, and I could see the Chargers making a surprise-run to the SB, but the Chargers pass defense is pretty weak.
San Fransisco @ Green I think this game is going to be closer than people think, what with Rodgers finally playing and the 49ers playing in -15 degrees. That said, Green Bay proved this year that they're nothing too special without Rodgers, while as the 49ers have a strong team all around.

Indianapolis @ Denver I don't believe Peyton's going to choke again. He came pretty close to a win last year against a team that almost won the SB and I think he'll do what he can to make sure that doesn't happen again.
New Orleans @ Seattle Seattle at home can beat anyone, as far as I'm concerned.
Cincinatti @ New England I kind of just feel like picking an upset here, but I do think this is a strong possibility. Cincinatti has a much stronger defense and they're offense isn't something to laugh at either.
San Fransisco @ Carolina This is a really close one. I could see this going either way.

Cincinatti @ Denver If Peyton Manning plays as well as he did in the regular season, and I think he will, he's definitely got the best team in the AFC.
San Fransisco @ Seattle Again, Seattle at home.

I called a Denver vs. Seattle superbowl before the season even started. I stand by that and I predict that Denver will win the superbowl.

I already posted this in the other topic. This time I included reasons.

Let me just say that just because the Packers don't deserve to be there doesn't negate any chance of them winning, like you guys seem to think.

Another curse that helps the Chargers is that Washington beat them.

'09: Redskins ALMOST beat the Saints
'10: Redskins beat the Packers
'11: Redskins beat the Giants twice
'12: Redskins beat the Ravens
'13: Redskins beat the Chargers

I still doubt it, but it would be funny, considering they're the only playoff team we beat.

Really disappointed in how the KC Defense played that second half. It doesn't help that there were about 10,000 injuries, (I swear the Colts covered their helmets in a fine layer of lead) but still. TY Hilton was the #1 threat against them, and they didn't double cover him. Every other receiver is about average, and one-on-one coverage would have sufficed against them. You have some of the best linebackers in the league, you shouldn't be worried about Donald Brown or (lel) Trent Richardson. Coby Fleener isn't going to be blazing past you.

Seriously, how do you get outscored 35 to 9 after you dominate the first half?

Spars
01-05-2014, 01:44 AM
Cuz Andy Reid.

P.S. Trent Richardson had 1 carry. It was for 0 yards. And on that 1 carry he fumbled it.

BUT DAT 1ST ROUNDER

Just so you all know, I'm 2-0 for picks so far.

Let's go Bengals and Packers so I can get to 4-0!

Mainly let's go Packers, that game is going to be colder than the blue hell that the Rock keeps talking about.

Spars
01-05-2014, 03:54 PM
Bengals can't win in the playoffs. Still 4:30 left in the 4th, but they're down 10 and it's SD's ball, so it's pretty much over. Never know after that Colts game though.

But since it looks that way, I will now be 3-0 in playoff picks so far. :cool: I went 11-0 last year, can I keep up my amazing perfection in the playoffs? Who know. Go Niners so I'm 4-0.
