Best Sports Picks Today’s NFL Divisional Playoff rankings, write up’s, and predictions for each conference! The last round was not the Greatest ever but 2-2 not bad. All 4 road teams won which was amazing! That won't happen this time around but I can expect at least one to do it! One road dog has won this round every year for the past 10 years!

NFC

6. Seattle Seahawks at 1. Carolina Panthers

The Seahawks received a gift Saturday afternoon from the Vikings in Minnesota. A trip to the Divisional Championship round! The Vikings did deserve that loss and it didn't have much to do with a field goal. Peterson lost it! Enough of that! The Seahawks will test their luck again in Carolina. This is a very winnable game. I say it depends on the Lynch factor. The Panthers on the other hand are the Best I seen this year. They always seem to find a way to win! Oh and one more thing, the Newton factor. I believe this game will be close but how can you go against Cam at home in a close one!

Picks: Panthers -145

 

5. Green Bay Packers at 2. Arizona Cardinals

The Packers very impressive and some say they are back! Rodgers was flawless in the 2nd half against a 28th ranked defense! Don't get me wrong he is good, but now going against the 5th ranked offense might change things up a bit! What can I say, the Cardinals look very impressive also and with this #1 Ranked Offense Palmer has this team right where he wants them. I cannot see them losing this game but stranger things have happened, especially when Green Bay is involved. The Cardinals win by at least 8 or more!

Pick: Cardinals -7

 

 

AFC

6. Pittsburgh Steelers at 1. Denver Broncos

In the worst game I seen all season the Steelers took the thug bowl over the Bengals! If Big Ben and Brown both play they will have a chance to upset. The match up between Pittsburgh's 3rd ranked offense and Denver's #1 ranked defense should be a thrill! Pittsburgh's defense came alive and they need them here. Could Manning's woes continue? He is banking on that defense to take him to the promise land. This should be a back and forth game. Has the makings for an upset but like I said Big Ben and Brown need to play here! If Williams plays its a shoe in! The Broncos will be kicking themselves for not starting Brock!

Pick: Steelers +235

 

5. Kansas City Chiefs at 2. New England Patriots  

The Chiefs the most impressive playoff team by far! With a 11 game winning streak and people saying they didn't play anyone yet, including me! I think they are the most well balanced team and have a chance as long as Alex Smith keeps his mistakes down to a minimum! Maclin could be a huge loss but I still like their upset chances. The well rested Tom Brady and company will be ready for this game. Slumping into the playoffs is something Belichick didn't want to see! I have to say they will be ready though. I think its another close one and the 5 plays the 6 seed in a wild playoff weekend NOBODY Predicted!!!!

Picks: Chiefs +6

That's the way I see it after the Divisional Round! Good Luck and see you in the Championship Round!
