1st Round of play-offs

Posted on: November 11, 2008 4:45 pm
 

okay so this is the play-offs i see happening

AFC

1) Titans 14-2
2) Steelers 11-5
3) Buffalo 10-6
4) Denver 9-7
5) Miami 10-6
6) Baltimore 10-6

NFC

1) Giants 13-3
2) Carolina 11-5
3) Minnesota 10-6
4) Arizona 10-6
5) Washington 11-5
6) Atlanta 10-6

Okay first round AFC

3) Buffalo vs 6) Baltimore - I will have to go Buffalo here.  Both teams are mostly even, i giving the edge to Buffalo via Speical teams play.  QB i would say slight edge to buffalo since Flacco is a rookie, and its a long season who knows how long he holds up.  Both defense are lights out, and both running games are soild with slight edge to baltimore.  I am going to say Buffalo 20 Baltimore 17

4) Denver vs 5) Miami - Going "upset" here and saying Miami.  Miami's running attack of Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown has been to much this year.  Plus, they are going against denver whos defense is not good to say it nice.  The wild-cat formation they run from time to time throws off defense and makes people respect the run and the ability the running backs have to throw the ball.  The only shot denver has is if it is a shot out, which i do not think it will be.  Miami 28 Denver 14

First round NFC

3) Minnesota vs 6) Atlanta - Going to go with Atlanta in this one.  Minnesota has been shaky a lot this year.  Some games they look amazing, and sometimes the look terible.  And overall Atlanta has looked good.  QB going to go with Ryan over Gus and its not really close.  Running back going minnesota but it is close, seeing as turner is having a really good year.  Defense and ST is about even i would say.  And when everything is usually even it comes down to QB, so Atlanta. Atlanta 21 Minnesota 20

4) Arizona vs 5) Washington - This one depends on which Arizona shows up, the one that played vs Dallas or the one that played the Jets.  Washington is hot and cold also.  Looked good all year after the terrible start vs giants, then against pittsburgh they looked bad.  Arizona's offense is just so much better then washingtons.  The run game def is better then arizona, but the passing game is just so overpowering.  Arizona 35 Washington 21

So the playoffs now look like this

AFC

TItans vs Miami and Pittsburgh vs Buffalo

and NFC

Giants vs Atlanta and Carolina vs Arizona

Will post this round later.

1st Round of play-offs

Well after last night I think the Bills are out also. That was a bad beat on home field and they now are 5-5. Looks like the Pats and Jets will make it from that division,one as division winner and the other a wild card spot. GO STEELERS!!

1st Round of play-offs

Yea, looks like my mid-year play-offs are not turning out so good.  Guess this could still happen, but most likely will not.  As long as Steelers get in i dont care :) 

Will do 2nd most likely today.

Thanks for comments all

1st Round of play-offs

I agree with most of your AFC picks but I think you are overlooking Indy. I believe whwn this plays out they will get one of the wild card spots and Balt will be out.Im not sold on Miami even though they are vastly improved.The Pats or Jets I think will get in before they will.

1st Round of play-offs

I agree that denver CAN be good, but till they start stopping people on defense I can not make them go past the first round.  Should have lost more then they have already this year.  O well, and good call on Arizona, will be another ten years when they get in again ha ha.
