NFL Postseason Week #3 is here. I went 3-1 last week ….. thanks you damn Broncos chokers…. 7-1 in postseason picks now.
This weekend looks like 1 borderline blowout and 1 potentially close game… lets hope for 2 well played, officiated and close games with plenty of drama for all the right reasons (no PI, Catch/NoCatch, or other bull bleep endings)!
Sunday Football (JAN 18) EASTERN TIME Broadcast
Green Bay at Seattle 3:05 PM FOX
Point Spread : -7.5 Seahawks
The major story is QB Aaron Rodgers leg injury. Is he 50%, 75% 90%.. no one really knows. A late injury has cropped up on the injury report, with RB Eddie Lacy having a knee issue. Both are expected to play, but how effective will they be in the game is the paramont question…
The Seahawks have a few injury of interest, RT Britt being one of the major ones. He has a minor knee injury, but I suspect he will be ready for Sunday. Losing WR Paul Richardson to a ACL injury was big, but WR Norwood will have to step up for the Seattle offense.
The team that can establish the tempo and control the line of finish, will win the game. A top offense vs a top defense should be outstanding, but the #9 “sea” offense vs a middle of the “pack” defense should also be outstanding to watch…. a chess match will unfold before your eyes.
Plenty of ALL-PRO and Probowlers all over the field, on both sides of the ball. Sit back and R-E-L-A-X… go ahead and enjoy the ride. This should be a game for the ages.
There will be NO FAILMARY this time. Late TD makes the score look closer than the game plays out…
Prediction: 27 – 21 Seahawks
Indianapolis at New England 6:40 PM CBS
Point Spread : -6.5 Patriots
I have not watched that many Patriots games, but they have been a more complete team since week #6. Both QBs are lights out with talent. The defenses are the true difference between the teams.
The Patriots splurged and brought in CB Browner and CB Revis to up their secondary game. The team defense is pretty good, but can they stop Colts WR TY Hilton…. an emerging superstar.
Ironically, the team that can rush the ball effectively, will win the game. Will that be the Colts RB “Boom” Herron or the Patriot RB by committee? Will we see any more “trick” plays by the Patriots?
Prediction: 33-28 Patriots
I predicted a SEATTLE vs NEW ENGLAND SB before the season even started, no reason to doubt that now. Next stop SB 49!!!!
Peace out SKAsians.
