There’s still one very critical week left in the NFL regular season.
Even so, let’s go ahead and predict what’s going to happen in the postseason. We’re predicting every game, from Wild Card Weekend to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
Obviously, in order to do that, the outcomes of some massive Week 17 games that will determine playoff spots and seeding still have to be predicted. Here’s how those matchups will play out.
Bears over Lions: Calvin Johnson will eclipse 2,000 receiving yards, but the Bears will prevail.
Packers over Vikings: With a bye week on the line, the Packers will overwhelm Adrian Peterson and Minnesota.
Cowboys over Redskins: Tony Romo—yes, Tony Romo—is the NFL’s hottest quarterback, while his counterpart Robert Griffin III isn’t fully healthy.
Colts over Texans: The Colts will play hard for the returning Chuck Pagano. Meanwhile, the Texans still won’t have ever beaten the Colts in Indianapolis.
Patriots over Dolphins: Knowing the Colts have beaten the Texans, the Patriots will go hard after the AFC’s second seed.
Now, with those logistics out of the way, it’s time to see how the 2013 NFL postseason will pan out, game by game.
