First Round of 2019 Playoffs….Who you got?

Playoffs…Playoffs?

Even with the Saints having a first round bye, there is plenty to pay attention to with this weeks wild card round. Let’s take a look at the upcoming playoff games starting with the AFC games and finishing with the games in the NFC that will decide who comes to New Orleans in the Divisional Round.

AFC

Colts vs Texans

While most of the games should be competitive, this will be the third time these two teams have played this season. Along with both teams have won one game on the road, the way Luck is playing makes it hard to go against the Colts. The Texans have a great defense and one of the better young QB’s in the game in Watson, but again both games these teams played were won on road. That said I have to go with the home team in a squeaker….27-26.

Chargers vs Ravens

Since the Ravens went into Los Angeles and beat the Chargers at home a couple of weeks ago, most people are picking the Ravens to win again at home. However the Chargers are getting some of there injured players like Melvin Gordon back and they do have Rivers. With that said, the Ravens are playing great defense and unless Jackson starts playing like a rookie QB, the Ravens should prevail….I’m going with the Ravens 21-17.

NFC

Seahawks vs Cowboys

For me the winner of this game is likely who the Saints will face in the divisional round. Unless the Eagles can go into Chicago and somehow win against the Bears defense, the Saints will get the winner of this game. The Seahawks won an early season meeting between the two teams in Seattle 24-13, Dallas has come a long way since then but it’s hard to go against Wilson. I’m going with Seattle upsetting the “Boys” in Dallas 31-21

Eagles vs Bears

I mentioned earlier that it will be tough for the Eagles to go into Chicago and beat the Bears. The monsters of the midway are back, but the Eagles have Foles, who has turned into a playoff monster. I can’t believe the Eagles haven’t come up with a suitable nickname for him. I’m going with the Bears 17-14, but if the Eagles win, I won’t be surprised….By the way if the Eagles do win, they will be the Saints opponent in the Divisional round.

While all this is going on the Saints are hopefully watching and getting healthy………

Happy New Year!!!

  1. I actually went to the Steelers @ Saints game in New Orleans, I had a really good seat along with a real good time. I am hoping that we get to play the Cowboys (Revenge) game. I hope the Eagles beat the Bears which I doubt will happen. But the Eagles would be an easier opponent for us.
