I fear this matchup, but I feel it is inevitable. Steelers-Patriots, a rematch of the 2004 AFC Championship if I am not mistaken. The Steelers were 15-1 in the regular season and were expected to win, but the Patriots won the game despite the predictions.
But, much like these games I predicted, that's why you play the games. If the teams that were expected to win always won, then the Chargers would be around and the Saints would not have lost to the Seahawks.
Well, for the NFC, I am picking the Packers and the Bears.
The Seahawks play VERY well at home and they won that last game mostly because the Saints were not prepared, and Marshawn Lynch went into beast mode.
I did pick the Seahawks to win purely based on their sheer will to win and how they play at home. And of course that no one would expect them to put up a fight, so the Saints would be caught off guard.
The Packers will win because the Falcons are the most overrated team in the league, and undeserving of being thought so highly of. When they can't run, Ryan has a hard time. Matty Ice is not what people make him out to be, and while he is good in the clutch, he is nothing but a game manager at the moment.
It also doesn't hurt that he has a top-four receiver in the NFL on his team, who has single-handedly saved at least two games, especially the 49ers game.
