Well, let’s see if I can’t predict the playoffs any better than the regular season. The wildcard games are just about to get underway!
(11-5-0) Chiefs First up is the KC Chiefs against the Texans. One of my biggest concerns about KC is that they haven’t played a quality team for some time now, so they may not be prepared for the step up in competition. That said, the Chiefs are a complete team. They don’t really have any great aspects to their team, they’re just solidly good all around. The Texans ….. not so much. I think the Chiefs will handle this one pretty well, assuming the coach doesn’t get stupid.
(10-6-0) Steelers This is a tough call. But, I’m picking the Steelers. Here’s why ……. the Bengals are 4-4 over their last 8 games. The Steelers are 6-2 over the same period of time, including a win at Cincy. Dalton is out for the Bengals. His sub, McCarron has been out passed by the likes of Gabbert and Mallett during his starts. Pitt wins this one.
(10-6-0) Seahawks Okay, this one is real iffy. It’s going to be stupid cold up in Minnesota. That said, I think the Hawk defense will shut down AP. I don’t think Bridgewater is a quality QB. He can certainly show me wrong this Sunday, but, I don’t think his game is near what Wilson’s is, right now.
(10-6-0) Packers Well, I’m just not ready to see a contending Redskins team. And, I don’t think they’re quite ready to contend.
Well, those are my picks. What do you think?
