This are my predictions of the divisional playoffs week 

Baltimore  vs. Indianapolis 

First of all Indianapolis is on a losing streak, some players are mad at the coaching staff for letting go the perfect season and the most important part is that they are playing against the BALTIMORE RAVENS one of the best pass defenses in the league. Second of all the Colts rush defense is one of the worst  in the league and we just saw Ray Rice Destroying the Pats so either Colts defense and Peyton Manning step up or they are gonna be  destroyed.

My Pick: Baltimore

Arizona vs New Orleans

Now this one was a hard one because they are both great teams but the keys of the game are:

1.- The Arizona just showed us that if you can give Kurt Warner some time he is going to crush you, so the Saints D-line has to step up and not give Kurt any time.

2.- The Saints come from a three game losing streak and a bye week I mean there isn't a way to get that team pumped up.

So why am I saying that the Saints are gonna win? Because they have a better team and I know that that isn't everything but there such a big difference I mean the Cardinals could barely beat the Packers last Sunday and they are not as good as the Saints.

My Pick: Saints

New York vs. San Diego

I like the Chargers, because they are the hottest team right now, I mean Phillip Rivers is on a roll and the Chargers D' knows that the Jets are going to run the ball most of the time so if they control the Jets rushing game I believe the Bolts' can win the game. But watch out for Mark Sanchez, because if he has a good game the Jets might be able to win it.

My Pick:Chargers

Dallas vs Minnesota

I believe that in this game the keys are going to be....

1.-The D' of both teams is going to be the most important thing on this game because they both have an explosive offenses so its going to breakdown weather which D' can stop the which offense.

2.-The second thing is that if Bret Favre and Tony Romo can play good because we've seen Tony destroy the Cowboys playoffs hope but we've also seen him have a great game against the Eagles last Saturday and we've also seen Bret Favre win a super bowl but we have also seen him lose playoffs games.

Its all gonna come down to which defense plays better and which quarterback plays better I think that this is going to be a good one.

My Pick:Dallas
