NFL Playoff Predictions: Previewing the Second Round Games This Weekend

Well, with my 2-2 record on Wild Card Weekend, I will look to improve this week, as things really heat up.

Of course, nobody could predict that the Seahawks would take that game, I did mention that it would be closer than people thought. The Seahawks put together some methodical drives in route to that victory. They have one of the best home field advantages in all of professional sports in my opinion. Tough to win in Seattle, even when you are the defending champs.

As for the Colts game, I almost hit that one on the head. I predicted that the Jets would be trailing and would need a field goal to win the game, but that Sanchez would end up throwing an interception. Instead, he hit Braylon Edwards on a big play near the sideline to set up the game-winning 32-yard field goal for Nick Folk. The game was really exciting all the way through, which is something you can really say for all of the games this past weekend, with the exception of the fourth quarter of the Ravens/Chiefs game.

The Ravens handled their business just like I predicted, because they are probably the best road team in all of football when it comes to the playoffs. Flacco still hasn't won a home playoff game, but that's because they have won all of their games on the road, which is actually even more impressive. The Packers/Eagles game was really a classic. Of course the most accurate kicker in the regular season would miss two huge field goals in that game. Granted, the weather conditions were tough, but clutch players make clutch plays, and he choked, twice. The game was very good, and it was really a coin flip. I wanted to see Vick go into Atlanta for the NFC Championship game, but it just wasn't meant to be this year.

As for this week's games, there are some great match ups. We will kick things off in Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon, and finish up on Sunday evening in New England.
