Wild Card Weekend Predictions

115 posts in this topic

I agree that defense will be a big determining factor.  We know KC has a good one but it comes down to whether Indy rises up and gets better on defense in the playoffs and whether Luck can pull more comebacks out of his butt. 

 

KC HAD a good D for the first half of the season.  They are giving up 28 pts a game for the second half of the season.

Crazy stat of the day that I heard.....KC had the worst defense in the entire league (yards allowed) in the 2nd half of the season.

 

Almost the same with scoring....giving up 28 pts a game during that span.

 

They started out hot against poo teams.  They are NOT a great team.

KC HAD a good D for the first half of the season.  They are giving up 28 pts a game for the second half of the season.

 

Don't forget they lost two of their best defenders halfway through the season.  They are getting healthy.

 

 

 

I'm taking:

 

 

KC over Indy:  KC getting healthy. vet QB and Coach vs. Young QB and Coach.  No Wayne = Colts O struggles.

 

SD over Cincy:  Rivers vs. Dalton, Chargers on a hot streak (beat both KC and Den at home when playoff seeding was on the line).  

 

SF over GB:  Better overall team talent.  Weather favors running and D, SF great at both.

 

Philly over NO:  No dome, slower field, Eagles have faster players and a better road D.  However vet QB and Coach for NO make this one a tough call for me.

Exactly.  So the question is whether the defense can step up like winning playoff teams do or whether they will continue to struggle.

-Saints are a better team than Philly and I can't get over how easily Dallas moved the ball on them, Brees will outscore Philly, 31-27. 

-9ers may be going to a completely different climate, but they love to run the rock and the Packers havn't been able to stop anyone this year. 28-17

-Colts are hot, Chiefs are not. I feel like Luck will make a couple of plays that win this game for Indy, especially at home. 24-21

-As much as I like the Chargers, Bengals are a much different team at home, they win this one because of their D. 27-21
