Wild Card Weekend

Posted: January 5, 2012 by djplaymaker in NFL

It’s here ladies & gentleman. 17 weeks passed & 32 teams competed to make the 12 team play-offs to call themselves champion when the smoke clears. Last week, we saw Tebow & the Broncos win the AFC West by losing the Orton bowl & the Raiders couldn’t capitalize on their mistakes, the Giants winning the NFC East & the Bengals clinching the final wild card spot. Now we have wild card weekend & Saturday’s games are rematches of regular season matches & Sunday’ s games are very interesting. Let’s break them down shall we

Saturday

Cincinnati vs Houston- This is a rematch of a week 14 game that was in Cincy. In this game, T.J. Yates led the Texans down the field for a game winning td w/ 6 secs left. This match-up is now in Houston & it’s the Texans 1st ever play-off game & the Bengals 1st play-off appearance in 4 yrs. Expect a lot of jitters from both teams. The Texans are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: I like the Bengals to steal this game since Marvin Lewis has coaching experience in the postseason over Kubiak. Cover the spread

Detroit vs New Orleans- Again, another rematch from a regular season contest. That game, the Lions kept in close til Brees & the Saints pulled away. However, something will be different this time. Suh didn’t play this 1st game, now he’s in this game. Expect a lot of offensive explosion. The Saints are 11 pts home fave.

Playmaker: I like the Saints, but take the under in this one

Sunday

Atlanta vs NY Giants- The Falcons get to travel to the Meadowlands to face Eli & the Giants. The Giants got here by clinching the NFC East, however the Falcons have the better record than them. But, since the Giants won their division, they get to host the game. This game may come down to which team has the better running game. Atlanta can come at you either way running or passing while the Giants rely on Eli & his passing when the running game is suspect. The Giants are a fg home fave.

Playmaker: I like the Falcons to win this match-up & take the over

Randy:

Pittsburgh vs Denver- The Tebow train makes it play-off debut & it gets a tough one off the bat. The Steelers are coming in banged up w/ Mendehall tearing his ACL, Ryan Clark & sickle cell denying him to play in this game. Don’t forget about Big Ben’s ankle. For the Broncos, Elway already gave some advice to Tebow by saying “let it fly”. C’mon son, I’ve seen high school quarterbacks have better passing acurancy than Tebow. This will be a defensive battle & if it’s close in the 4th & 5 mins left, watch out for Tebow time. The Steelers are 8 pt road faves.

Playmaker: If you think Tebow’s gonna win his 1st play-off game, keep dreaming. Take the Steelers & the under

Last week, rookie Randy won week 17 w/ a 12-4 record, Noez had 11-5 & yours truly had a dismal 9-7 record. Let’s see how we do in the postseason. Happy b-day shoutouts to my cousin Nikki Reynolds, Jessica Lara, Michael Varciag, David Enzo, Angie Martinez, Mary J.Blige, Aaron Ramos & a posthomus 33 b-day to my lil bro Terrance Brewster aka T-Bagz!! We got you. RIP. Til then, catch ya next week. Peace
