Picks for the Divisional Round of the playoffs....
Seattle 24 Washington 12
Can't see Gibbs' crew going cross country, and pulling this one off. Seahawks are rested, tough at home, and due to finally win a postseason game.
Actual result: Seattle 20 Washington 10
New England 23 Denver 20
Toss out the result from Week 6 (Broncos won 28-20, and it wasn't that close). Pats defense is clicking and is capable of slowing dwon Denver's ground game. Which means it's all in Jake Plummer's hands....
Actual result: Denver 27 New England 13
Indianapolis 27 Pittsburgh 15
Colts are simply better, and primed to move on. Steelers might hang around, but once they fall behind they'll be done.
Actual result: Pittsburgh 21 Indianaoplis 18
Carolina 13 Chicago 10
People, it's Rex Grossman, not Johnny Unitas. Is he better than Kyle Otron? Sure, but he's still Rex Grossman. Panthers travel well, are playoff tested, and I can see them pulling this one out via a big play from defense of special teams.
Actual result: Carolina 29 Chicago 21
Last week: 2-2
