For this weekends Divisional round of the NFL playoffs

I have

Denver over Baltimore
Green Bay over San Francisco
New England over Houston
Atlanta over Seattle

But I would like to see these teams win

Baltimore-- Live in Bmore so kinda easy to root for them alittle when my Eagles are done
Green Bay-- Rodgers is going to embarrass the Kapernick led 49ers IMO
Houston-- I just tired of seeing the Patiriots, plus what that writer said about the Pats having another bye week with Houston coming there
Seattle-- I only want to see them win to set up a re-match of the ragular season game that happened with the inaccurate reception by Golden Tate. Green Bay was robbed. I think Green Bay should be able to get alittle payback for that call to end the game that eventually helped the Seahawks get into the playoffs.

If the correct call was made the Seahawks would have been 9-7 and that would have allowed the Chicago Bears that were also 10-6 make the post-season and Lovie smith would still have his job. That call has really screwed up the entire NFC playoff picture and cost a coach his job that should have been in the playoffs and in the playoffs IMO.

Sorry for the Rant.

How do you guys feel about the upcoming weekend games? Who you pulling for??

The Seahawks were 11-5. So that lose would have brought them to 10-6. They did beat both the Vikings and Bears as well, so I think things would have stayed the team (as far as the teams that made the playoffs).

NE over Houston
ATL over Seattle
Denver over Baltimore
GB over SF

I'd even venture to say that it'll be another boring weekend, San Fran-Green Bay will be the only entertaining, close game.

I'm going to take all the home teams. It never seems to work out that way, though. The toughest to pick for me is SF/GB, I could definitely see it going either way.

Having a tough time with the Seattle/Atlanta game. Still not impressed with Atlanta, and Seattle two weeks in a row on the east coast concerns me. F it, I'm going with Seattle. I like the 3 home teams in the other games, especially in the AFC. Not leaning heavily towards San Fran, but am leaning slightly that way.

Who I hope wins.

New England and Denver would be a great AFC matchup.

Seattle, and I don't have a strong preference in the GB/SF game. Leaning a little more towards hoping GB wins.

This is my favorite football weekend of the season.

I don't know how you can be a neutral and not want to see Brady and Manning go at it again in the championship game. I only want to see awesome quarterbacking go forward in the playoffs.

I can only speak for me, but JJ Watt is a former Badger as is Owen Daniels and garrett graham which is why I'll be rooting for Houston

Broncos over Ravens - End of the road for Ray Ray.
Packers over 49ers - Packers should've been in the SB last year at 15-1. Wont choke again this year,
Patriots over Texans - Texans still do not have that feel of a team ready for a SB run.
Seahawks over Falcons - Another choke in playoffs for Atl, who have been cocky and felt overlooked all year though I want Seattle eliminated so Eagles can hire Bradley!

I actually think Baltimore is alot healthier then when they played 4 weeks ago or whatever it was. Im seeing a Denver win still IMO, but I think Ray Lewis will make this game close and entertaining until the last few miinutes IMO

Ray Lewis will make the game close? I highly doubt it. As much sentiment as Ray has been receiving lately, he really isn't a great linebacker right now, he's a decent one, good at times. He doesn't have nearly enough "impact" plays in him to influence the outcome of a game.

your from the inside of that sititution though. Brady plays for your Pats. If you didnt cheer for the Pats you might also be fed up with the Brady and Manning love fest. I agree that would probally be the best AFC Championship game, but I also love the side story of a Raven/Patriots AFC championship game. Will the Ravens get revenge of the dissappointing loss in last years afccg in NE and send Ray Lewis to the SB in his last season, or will Tom Brady end Ray Lewis's career at Gillette stadium on Jan 20, 2013??

Man, if Matt Ryan is one and done again this season.... he will fall to 0-4 in the playoffs. He is always compared to Joe Flacco of the Ravens cause they both are 1st rounders in the 2008 draft. Joe Flacco has 6 playoff wins under his belt right now with 4 of them coming on the road. They are very close in the w/t department also for the regular season, but Ryan has put up better regular season stats. Gotta take in effect that Ryan has 2 of the best WRs in football and oh, forgot to mention a HOFer playing TE at a high level still. Baltimore has the better run game over Atlant by far, but the Ravens arent even in the dicussion when it comes to talent level of the WR/TE comparisaions.
