Predicting NFL playoff games can be tricky business. You have to look at teams coming off of a bye week, injuries from the Wild Card games and how the teams fared when they met earlier in the year.

The divisional round of the playoffs is one of the favorite times of the year for NFL football fans, when they get to see two divisional playoff games on Saturday and two more divisional playoff games on Sunday.

The winners of these four games will then meet next weekend for the AFC and NFC Championship games with the right to represent their conferences in Super Bowl XLVII.

NFL fans should be treated to some strong offensive performances this weekend. Of the eight remaining teams in the postseason, they all are ranked in the top 11 teams in scoring average. The New England Patriots finished No. 1, averaging 34.8 points per game, while San Francisco finished at No. 11 with an average of 24.8 points per game.

We will take a detailed look at each of the four divisional games and predict the winner as well as a final score.
