Saturday Night Chiefs @ Texans 21:35 Steelers @ Bengals 01:15
Sunday Night Seahawks @ Vikings 18:05 Packers @ Redskins 21:40
Steelers @ Bengals is the pick of those matchups for me, divisional games in the playoffs are always compelling viewing and this is the best shot Cincy is gonna have at getting that elusive playoff win. Initially I was gonna say all 4 road teams win, but that cant happen, home field is too big of an advantage in the playoffs, so Im gonna go with Chiefs, Bengals, Vikings and Packers to get the wins.
I think I'd jizz all over the place if Vikings managed to get that play-off win. The second they come up against Carolina they'll get an ass whipping, but I'm so happy that they've managed to take the division and make it to the play-offs.
Yeah its quite annoying that even though Vikings have the higher seed, Packers have the easier matchup against the Redskins. Vikings have the Seahawks at the worst possible time, Wilson is in incredible form.

I think theres a lot to be said for having been there and done it before, Rodgers and the Packers as a whole are a playoff hardened team, theyre not playing like it right now but theyve been there and done it before, the Redskins have not so even with home advantage I think the Packers will pull out a win.
Oh I think most people will agree that all the away teams are most likely to progress, I just think the Packers are the most likely to slip. The way the Redskins have been playing, look at how they torched the Cowboys in the 1st Quarter, I really think they have a great shot, especially with the awful form the Packers are showing.
The Texans probably have a decent chance, with how well they and especially Watt have been playing of late. Really could not believe the luck of the Patriots that Watt breaks his hand just before he play them. He completely wrecked the Jets when he played them the week before. Speaking of luck, just look at the Chiefs schedule, not a lot of good teams in the past few weeks. When I saw them in London the Lions rolled over for them, sure they beat an injury hit Steelers and Broncos team, but I just do not see Alex Smith having a great time against the Texans defence, which means it will be close, so the Texans could sneak it.
There is no way I can see the Seahawks losing, it is a shame as I like Mike Zimmer due to his appearances on Hard Knocks with the Bengals, it just seems that the Seahawks are just hitting their stride, and will be in strong to making it 3 Superbowls in a row.
As for the Bengals, well.... I mean they have a chance against the Steelers, who looked shaky against the Browns... I just cannot see them ever winning a playoff game. Even if they had Dalton, maybe especially if they had Dalton
