They have been here before? How about 0 away playoff wins in their entire franchise history.

Sent from the Carolina Huddle App

Before this season we had never beaten Miami or Matt Ryan in the dome. Do we really want to talk about what teams have "never" done. They still have one of the best qbs in the game and one of the best play callers. I don't like them either but I respect them as a football team and I'm not ignorant to their abilities.

If the football Gods hadn't sent that rain in we'd probably be on our way to Philly right now.

8PM Saturday in Philly is supposed to be 30 degrees, dropping thru the game. Taints like to play inside. I like Philly. 

 

The question I have with the Pack is their crappy offensive line.  SF's defense will be pressuring Rogers all day long, but I think his return sparks his team to a win. GB

 

Bengals at home will beat the Chargers. 

 

Colts at home will beat the Chiefs.

I believe his point was that the Saints have playoff experience in key areas, which the Eagles lack. Brees vs. Foley, and most importantly Payton vs. Kelly. Saints have good experience, but I expect the Eagles to win not because the offense for the Saints will be stopped, but rather Rob Ryan's defense can't stop Philly.

A blind hog will find an acorn sometimes.  I still agree with you on Philly over Saints.

Saints on the road are almost as bad as Clemson in Chapel Hill. I say almost because they haven't racked up the number of losses and yet their win total remains the same.

Trends don't lie but were made to be broken. The Saints are really gonna give Philly everything they have.

The real question is which Philly team shows up? The stomp a mud hole in your ass Eagles or the get blown out by 35+ Eagles?

San Fran is on a mission and I can't see the Packs defense getting off the field on 3rd downs. Frank Gore can shoulder the load here and get the Niners into the next round.

The Chiefs are on the decline and Indy already routed these guys in Arrowhead. Colts win by 8+.

The Bengals because Chargers.

I agree with Zod, and I hope it plays out that way since SF is the only team that I think has a chance to beat Seattle at home and force the NFCC game to come to Charlotte.

27-19 Chargers over Bengals -- Chargers are seeking revenge and it's their second look at this Bengal team.  Woodhead and Allen go nuts.  Bengals lay an egg.  

 

30-20 Colts over Chiefs -- Chiefs still look good despite their late season slide, but I don't see them pulling it out.  

 

24-20 Eagles over Saints -- I like the Eagles.  Seems like a lot are going with the Saints but I see Foles matching Brees' production and them coming out on top.  

 

31-17 49ers over Packers -- San Fran runs over the Packers defense.  Rodgers still does something but it's not enough.  

 

Home teams 2-2

I agree with all the pics in the OP except Bengals over Chargers... I think the Charges will win in a close game.
