After only going 2-2 in the first round of the playoffs, how will I do in week 2?
We are entering what some people consider the best weekend in the NFL season. Fans should be treated to some great games this weekend with two games on both Saturday and Sunday.
New Orleans 27 San Francisco 17
The 49ers were a great story this season and not many saw them winning the #2 seed in the NFC. Unfortunately I don't see the niners playoff success to mirror the success they had in the regular season. I really like their defense and Frank Gore is a nice running back.
I don't see the 49ers scoring enough points on offense and although their defense has played great I can't see them completely stopping Brees and the Saints. I like the Saints by 10 points in what should be a good game.
New England 31 Denver 13
What a great game last week for the Broncos. Tim Tebow was able to make some plays with his arm and their defense played well.
Tom Brady is as good as they get in the postseason. I don't see Denver lasting in this game for long, but stranger things have happened.
I like the Patriots big in this one.
Baltimore 24 Houston 10
Houston was a great story this season and will be a playoff team for the next several seasons. I like Baltimore winning this game which will set up an entertaining AFC Championship Game Next week.
NY Giants 28 Green Bay 24
No this isn't a typo. I know the Packers were 15-1 this season, but they are by no means perfect. They have some holes on the offensive line that I think the excellent Giants pass rush will expose. I like the combination of Bradshaw and Jacobs against an average Packers run defense.
If the Giants can pressure Aaron Rodgers, and aren't stupid on offense I think they can shock the world. I say they can which is why I think the Giants will beat the Packers in a very close game.
