AFC CHAMPIONSHIP: 

This will be an exciting matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets.  So far this week there has been little trash talking from the Jets side.  They know that the Steelers will be ready for a fist fight and are looking to avenge an early season loss.  The Steelers defense led by James Harrison and Troy Polamalu will be ready for the Jets running game and will confuse Mark Sanchez all game.  If they can bring pressure from their front four the Jets will be in some trouble.  The Steelers offensive line may be the key to this game as they are pretty banged up.  If the Jets can confuse the Steelers o-line they have a chance.  If Ben Roethlisberger has time to set up in the pocket and Rashard Mendenhall can establish himself as a dominant runner the Jets will be in for a long day.  My prediction the Steelers move on 28-14.  Final score was 24-19 Steelers over Jets so I was pretty close.  Steelers move on to take on the......


NFC CHAMPIONSHIP:

This is the third time the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers will meet this year with both teams winning one game.  The Bears had a chance in the last regular season game to knock the Packers out of the playoffs but could only muster 3 points.  They failed then and will fail again.  The Packers have found a running game to compliment Aaron Rodgers and the passing game.  The Packers proved they can move the ball against the Bears in their last meeting.  The Packers defense will cause Jay Cutler fits and Clay Mathews will bring pressure, while Charles Woodson and the other defensive backs blanket cover the Bears receivers.  If the Packers offensive line can handle Julius Peppers this game could get out of hand for the cheeseheads.  My prediction, the Packers move on to the Super Bowl 35-7.  Final score 21-14 Packers.  I was a bit off but picked the right team.  Woohoo two for two.  The Super Bowl is set Pittsburgh Steelers versus the Green Bay Packers.

We will see if these predictions hoild true.  This time I went with my heart not my head.
