Ok so its established which teams are playing which in the NFL playoffs, and I’m here to tell you who will win each game.

NFC Wild Card Round:

3. New Orleans Saints (13-3) vs 6. Detroit Lions (10-6)

The Saints have had a record breaking season this year. Drew Brees broke the single season record for passing yards. He also broke the record for the most 300 yard games with 12. The Lions have also had a historic season. After years of horrible seasons and first picks in the draft the Silver Crush has finally made it to the playoffs.

  Prediction: Saints 38 Lions 24

4. New York Giants (9-7) vs 5. Atlanta Falcons (10-6)

What happened to the Giants? After beating the Patriots early in the season the G-Men were riding high and 6-2. But then it came down to a winner take all finale against the Cowboys. The Falcons were my pre-season prediction to win the Super Bowl but now the Falcons just look like a watered-down version of the “Dream Team”.

Prediction: Giants 31 Falcons 21

AFC Wild Card Round:

3. Houston Texans (10-6) vs 6. Cincinnati Bengals (9-7)

The Bengals surprised everyone including me by winning more than two games. The Bengals have two of the best rookies this year, QB Andy Dalton and WR A.J. Green. The Texans have had a lot of injury problems lately. The Texans lost there star WR Andre Johnson, there starting QB Matt Schaub, and there backup QB Matt Leinart.

Prediction: Texans 14 Bengals 28

4. Denver Broncos (8-8) vs 5. Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4)

The Steelers are also having injury troubles. There starting QB Ben Roethlisberger is injured, there starting running back Rashard Mendenhall is out with a torn ACL. The Broncos were on a win streak of 6 games because of Tim Tebow but now after the Patriots put an end to “Tebow Time” the Broncos barely made it to the playoffs.

Prediction: Broncos 13 Steelers 31

NFC Divisional Round:

1. Green Bay Packers (15-1) vs 4. New York Giants (9-7)

The Packers were called the “best team in NFL history” early in the season. But the Chiefs put an end to there run for an undefeated season. The Packers still have Aaron Rodgers who might just be the best QB since Tom Brady.

Prediction: Packers 31 Giants 17

2. San Francisco 49ers (13-3) vs 3. New Orleans Saints (13-3)

The 49ers have had a dream season. The 49ers hired a new head coach, Jim Harbough in the off-season and he led them to the “promised land”. The 49ers did not even have sign any big names in the off-season.

Prediction: 49ers 31 Saints 38

AFC Divisional Round:

1. New England Patriots (13-3) vs 6. Cincinnati Bengals (9-7)

The Patriots made two big signings in the off-season by signing Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth. But the signing that helped them the most was Andre Carter, until he injured himself.

Prediction: Patriots 38 Bengals 13

2. Baltimore Ravens (12-4) vs 5. Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4)

Another re-match of the season opener. The Steelers are just happy to make it to the Divisional round with all there injuries. The Ravens have one of the best defense’s in the league. But the Steelers also have a good defense and offense.

Prediction: Ravens 31 Steelers 17

NFC Championship Game:

1. Green Bay Packers (15-1) vs 3. New Orleans Saints (13-3)

The Packers dream season is still on a run but the Saints are also having a great season. Drew Brees is having one of the best season for a QB ever. But Aaron Rodgers is also a having an outstanding season.

Prediction: Packers 24 Saints 35

AFC Championship Game:

1. New England Patriots (13-3) vs 2. Baltimore Ravens (12-4)

The Ravens have had a great year so far. The Patriots also have had a great season. Tom Brady has had a wonderful season. Rob Gronkowski has also had a great season, the best season for a TE ever.

Prediction: Patriots 35 Ravens 31

Super Bowl XLVI

1. New England Patriots (13-3) vs 3. New Orleans Saints (13-3)

Both these teams have had a great offensive years. The Saints started out there season by losing to the Packers but since then they have continued to win and made it to the playoffs. The Patriots have also had a great season. Both these teams have record breaking QB’s in Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.

Prediction: Patriots 38 Saints 35
