I will make the weeks predicition, then the rest of the post season. I'll rewrite predicitions (tweaking if necessary) next week when we have the real winners of the post season.I will make the weeks predicition, then the rest of the post season.

#5 St Louis at #4 Seattle: St Louis has played some fantastic games against the Seahawks, including a 4th quarter comeback. They have swept the Seahawks during the regular season. Lets face it, though. Winning three times against one team is extremely difficult. Playing against a divisional foe, though, and anything can happen. It'll be a close one, but I'll give it to the Rams for their postseason experience. Rams by 2
#5 New York (J) at #4 San Diego: Here's the Bolts real first test. They play a running attacking with a superior defense. Fortunately, the Bolts have the #2 run defense in the league. The Bolts running attack is just as good, but they also have a potent passing attack. Close game determined on special teams and/or turnovers. Chargers by 6
#6 Denver at #3 Indianapolis: Denver sure did show the Indy backups who is boss. Now the game is on the carpet and the starters are in. Denver should produce the same point total as this past sunday. Indy, however, will probably score 5X (or more) than past sunday. Colts by 10
#6 Minnesota at #3 Green Bay: Minnesota is playing like they don't care. That's not gonna fly in Lambeau field. That place IS the playoffs. Pack by 6
#5 St Louis at #1 Philedelphia: The Rams have to go to Lincoln Fianacial Field and play the Unanimous #1 of the NFC. I'm going to stick to my guns, though, and say that not playing your starters at least once and not winning a game in the past month will be extremely detrimental to the Eagles. I'll call the upset right here. Rams by 1
#4 San Diego at #1 Pittsburgh: This is the game that me, as a Steeler fan, truely fears. Both teams have a good running attack. Both have good passing. Both have a dominating defense and both have good special teams. This game will be extremely close, but if the Steelers injuried are healed, and having that bye week helps, and, lets not forget how home field helps games, I'm giving it to my team. Steelers by 5
#3 Indianapolis at #2 New England: Want to see the Indy offense fall flat? Take them to icy Foxboro in the middle of January. Edgerinn James will help the offense with some good ground numbers, but they'll be no match for the NE D. Patriots by 3
#3 Green Bay at #2 Atlanta: If this was in Lambeau, I'd give it to the Pack. I think these teams match together perfectly. Atlanta hasn't completely unleashed Vick. Perhaps they are waiting for the post season? Regardless, the Atlanta defense is what makes the team good. Falcons by 3
#2 New England at #1 Pittsburgh: Teh rematch that will be a closer and better game than the Superbowl. The Steelers D will be at its best, and the NE D will bring all its got. Will be a slugfest to the end, but I'll giving it to the better rushing attack, which is Pittsburgh (given that NE won't be completely healed, I don't think its a bad pick). Steelers by 1
#5 St Louis at #2 Atlanta: Carpet team vs Carpet team. Only difference is that one team is a (mostly) high powered offense, and one is a shutdown defense. Can't win championships without defense (just ask Indy). Atlanta by 4
#1(AFC) Pittsburgh vs #2(NFC) Atlanta: Two defensive giants play. However, the 'NFC' defensive giant is really no match for the 'AFC' defensive giant. The atlanta front four is good, but Pittsburgh is a team that was stuffing run stopping elite teams (like NE and Baltimore) and kicking them in the teeth. This will be a slow running/defensive game. Just the way the Steelers like to play. Pittsburgh by 10
That's the picks. Yeah, I know the iggle fans will come out of the hills to bitch at me. Just the same when I predicted the Steelers would beat them. So, lets see how things unfold, shall we??
