Divisional Round Playoff predictions
With Wild Card weekend already in the books, it’s on to the Divisional Round of the Playoffs. This round sees the winners of the Wild Card games travel to the number 1 and number 2 seeds from each Conference.
In the AFC, the number 1 seed New England Patriots will be hosting Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. These teams have already come up against each other in week 15 of the Regular season with the Patriots winning 41-23.
The number 2 seed Baltimore Ravens will play host to the Houston Texans in the other game in the AFC. Houston will be hoping that rookie Quarterback T.J. Yates can step up against the dominating Ravens Defense.
The winners of these games will meet in the AFC Championship Game on January 22nd.
In the NFC, the number 1 seed Green Bay Packers will be hosting the in-form New York Giants. The Giants are coming off an impressive 24-2 victory over the Atlanta Falcons and will be full of confidence heading into Lambeau Field.
The number 2 seed San Francisco 49ers will play host to the New Orleans Saints in the other game in the NFC. This game should be a thriller with the highly rated 49ers Defense going up against Drew Brees and the Saints high-scoring Offense.
The winners of these games will meet in the NFC Championship Game on January 22nd.
Can Tim Tebow lead the Broncos to another Playoff victory? Can the New York Giants pull off an upset against the number 1 seed Green Bay Packers? Let’s get to the predictions.
