NFL Championship Round Preview
The Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, and Seattle Seahawks were sent packing this past weekend. Only 4 teams remain. Can this Sunday repeat the quality of last Sunday's matchups?
All the teams that remain in the postseason all have top 10 ranked offenses. We should see high scoring games for the rest of the playoffs. I went 4-0 with my picks last week and I am 8-0 in the playoffs.
NFC: (4) Green Bay Packers 36 vs (2) Atlanta Falcons 32: The Packers lost in a 33 to 32 shootout to the Falcons earlier in the season. Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan are playing sensational football right now. It looks like Jordy Nelson won't play again for the Packers this week. The Falcons have a better running game, but the Packers experience will lift them to victory.
AFC: (3) Pittsburgh Steelers 30 vs (1) New England Patriots 37: Le'Veon Bell is a one man wrecking crew on the ground for the Steelers right now. Ben Roethlisberger has to play better this week and I think he will. The difference in the game will be Tom Brady lighting it up on his home turf like he usually does.
