My playoff record is an abysmal 3-5. This week is my last chance to turn it around.
Niners @ Falcons Niners will win. I despise the Niners and I really want them to lose this game. They are very dynamic and I don’t think the Falcons can keep up with the Niners offense. Atlanta has a great offense but the Niners have a great defense and they will slow down Atlanta’s offense just enough to outscore them.
Ravens @ Patriots I like the Patriots here. The Ravens defense is very strong right now and I have no doubts that they will rip some heads off today. I’m concerned about the Ravens strength. They haven’t had a week off in eleven weeks and they played a double-overtime game on five days’ rest last week. The Patriots have the best offense in the league, they are playing at home, they are playoff veterans, and they had an extra week of rest during the Wildcard games. I expect the Patriots to run away with the game starting just after the middle of the third quarter.
