So the Jets season is officially over and now I have to just sit back and enjoy some football without any bias. I think I can appreciate that I can just watch a game and not know it’s my team doing well or not. This article is my playoff preview that I will do before every round of the tournament. This weekend is the 4 games of the wildcard round.
4:30 Bengals at Texans in a rematch of the regular season match up. The Texans won that game on a last second TD from the Texans in Cincinnati. I don’t see this being the same thing as the first meeting. I think the Texans have too many injuries and only got into the playoffs because the division was so weak. Texans aren’t the same team they were since Matt Schaub got hurt. I am taking the Bengals in this one but I can’t say it’s an upset.
8 has Lions at Saints in yet another rematch. Unlike the other games this weekend I see this one being high scoring and a lot of offense. Saints have the better offense I think due to how deep they are in the receivers they have for Drew Brees. They also have the edge in that they are playing in the SuperDome which is known for the noise levels they create. Let’s not forget he holds the record for most yards passing in one season. I think the Lions are too young and just shoot themselves every week due to stupid penalties. I think the Saints will win. It won’t be by a lot but it will be a win and high scoring. WHO DAT
1 has Falcons at Giants from MetLife stadium. Falcons have the wildcard this year and won’t have the comforts of playing in the Georgia Dome. The Falcons are interesting in that no one really talks about them so they don’t have a lot of hype surrounding them. Julio Jones is a huge play maker for them with his ability to break free. The Giants I think have the better offense and defense. We know about the pass rush which does hide the terrible secondary they have. The offense is prolific in how easily they can score. Giants in a close one I think.
4:30 has Steelers at Broncos and this is an interesting one. I am so sick and tired of the hype of Tebow. I am a Florida State guy and never liked Tebow since his college days. I will never ever root for him. His offense can’t score on command like other teams. They are low scoring and have a decent defense. On the other side we know all about the smash mouth Steeler defense. They form tackle and bring HEAVY blitz packages. The Steeler offense is also big play worthy and has a more balanced offense. I think the Tebow story ends Sunday in Denver. Not high scoring but he will be held in check. I am stalking the Steelers in this one.
