Houston wins, finally. Bengals have great defense but not enough firepower to prevail.

Minnesota cannot win in Lambeau Field.

Indy will beat the aging Ravens to setup a match with Manning and the Broncos. Its been ordained. Nice to see Manning crush the team that dumped him.

Seattle, if RG3 is still hampered by his leg, will crush Washington. Cannot see the Skins stand up to that ferocious defense and the offense, led by Russell Wilson 'aint too bad either.

I’m all confused.

I’ve always hated the Redskins as I hate HATE HATE Joe Gibbs. But I like Mike Shanahan and I think RG3 is an awesome quarterback and very dynamic and explosive and I want to see those two to succeed in this post season. But the fact the utterly vile human being (if you want to call him that) they call Joe Gibbs is associated with that team turns my stomach. I never did care much for the Seahawks, but Russell Wilson has proven himself and I love that Pete Carroll basically took Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson and put them in competition with each other and actually had the balls to choose the unproven rookie over the guy that backed up Rodgers for a few seasons. Plus, ever since the fake punt against my loser Billies, I’ve had a new found respect for the Seahawks. I love trick plays, I love what some people call ‘running up the score’, I love leaving starters in, I love going for the throat and not just winning, but beating, destroying and massacring the competition. 150 points in three games, the Seahawks rock!

I really don’t care about Minnesota/Green Bay game, but I will always associate the Packers with that idiot Favre, who I wish the worst upon, even though the old hasbeen hasn’t been on the team for three or four years, after he wanted to retire three of four dozen times. No ill will toward Aaron Rodgers or McCarthy, just the thought that old man Favre may get some enjoyment out of watching the Packers win makes me want to root against them.

As a hater of the Idiotapolis Ponies since Manning attempted his first pass, I want Luck to rip it up and show that town the old giraffe isn’t really that great. To quote a tshirt I saw ‘I’d Rather Have A Young Colt Then An Old Bronco’. Unfortunately I do think Baltimore will win, but their defense has been exposed and you can see what a huge difference the presence of Ray Lewis actually makes and it wouldn’t totally surprise me to see Indy win.

I don’t care about Houston or Cincinnati, but after having the bumbling idiot Wade Phillips here in Buffalo and witnessing his unsportsman like actions and crying after the Music City Miracle, I wish him many failures in the future. I hope he goes to his grave with no Championships or anything else to show for his life.

I don't see either of these teams crushing the other. As bad as Seattle's run defense is, Morris will probably gain a ton of yards against them. The Seahawks give up 4.5 yards per rush; only 5 teams in the league are worse than that. And the Redskins lead the league in yards-per-play on offense.

Wilson turns the ball over a lot more than Griffin and the Rams sacked him 6 times yesterday.

The Seahawks split their season series with the 49'ers, the Rams, and (gulp) Arizona.

The Seahawks are awesome at home but 3-5 on the road and this game is in Washington.

I see a 1 or 2 point game, going down to the wire.

Admittedly I used too much hyperbole to describe the game. But I didn't mean "crush", points wise, but physically.

Seattle has improved throughout the Season. Admittedly, they had a bad last game against the Rams but their (Rams) Coach is one of the best defensive coaches in the League. They still found a win to win, however, which is more than I can say about the 49ers against the Rams. Seattle have overwhelmed their previous 3 opponents by 150 points or more, and that includes the mighty 49ers, whom they destroyed.

Their run defense? They shut down Frank Gore of the 49ers couple of weeks ago.

Washington has only beat 2 or 3 teams with a winning record (I forget which), whilst Seattle has played and defeated SF, NE, Bears, GB (disputed but still a win), all elite teams probably the best in the league (exception of Bears but still a 10-6 record).

Russell Wilson is not the glamor QB like RGIII, but that's because he plays in Seattle.

Washington's hope lies in Alfred Morris and not RGIII (who is gimpy), at least on Sunday he was. It was Morris responsible for the win against Dallas. But Seattle counters with Marshawn Lynch, who is no slouch.

The only caveat I see against a Seattle victory is that the game is in Washington (they are lucky to play in the 2012 sad sack NFC East) where Seattle could founder.

Indy at Baltimore, I don't have a clue. Weird having Pagano coming back to face the Ravens in a playoff game 1 year removed from that AFC Championship debacle. And of course he brings along possibly the next great QB of a generation . But being a homer I'll pick the Ravens to survive this first playoff game, but most likely not the next one.

RG3 & Morris compliment each other well ... and dispite RG3 being gimpy he rushed for 63 yards on 6 carries( long of 17 so it asn't all on 1 carry) ..

It should be a close game as Seatltle scores a lot of points off of turnovers where the Redskins has the fewest amount of turnovers in the NFL (14, and 4 came in the 2nd half of the 1st Giants game which they lost by 4)

about the "sad sack" division ...2 years ago the NFC west didn't have a team with a winning record and last year only had 1 winning record, so things change fast.

Both the Seahawks & Redskins have been on a tear lately, so I see a close game myself.

going 5-1 in the division and winning the last 7 in a row (including 5 in the division), I think the Redskins wanted it ..

I've been a Bengals season ticket holder since the mid 80s, but think they will keep intact their losing streak in the playoffs. Their last win was against the Houston Oilers in 1991. Can they beat the Texans? With their defense, they absolutely can. I'm just not sure if their offense will be able to put up enough points.

How crazy would it be to see Washington vs Baltimore in the Super Bowl? Two teams just 45 min away from each other. We all know thats likely not going to happen, though..

Ill take Texans over Bengals, Packers over Vikings, Ravens over Colts, and as far as the Skins-Hawks game, man that might be the best one to watch this weekend. I really dont know who to pick in this match.. Im leaning towards Seattle, but not very confident with that pick.

The Seahawks feed off that home crowd, they are a much less dynamic team on the road. I fully expect them to lose in DC.

I read a surprising stat last night on Grantland. Cincinnati has the #1 pass defense in the NFL over the last eight weeks of the season and Houston's pass offense has steadily declined in the last half of the season. Could be a tough day for Houston tomorrow.

Minnesota doesn't beat Green Bay this week. How many times do we see two teams play in consecutive weeks and have the same team win both games? That never happens. Plus, the Vikings need two hundred yards from Peterson just to stay in the game. If he only rushes for 150, they're doomed.

Baltimore just screams out 'overrated'. They're a better team than the Colts but for some reason I'm expecting the Colts to find a way to win this one. If gambling wasn't illegal, this would be the game I'd avoid betting on.

Baltimore is hardly overrated. Every talking head out there abuses Flacco and talks about the $hitty defense and how they lost 4 of their last 5. And they would be right. I think Baltimore wins vs Indy, but is simply outclassed in round 2, probably vs Manning.

Admittedly Seattle is in tough with Washington, but I think their defense can come through. Its a game pitting two great RBs and two highly mobile QBs. There I think its a draw. It will come down to defense and special teams where Seattle has the edge.

If the weather is bad at Lambeau that will give the Vikings an edge. But Ponder has to come through for them to win. However, I really can't see them match Rodgers Touchdown for touchdown.

Houston has to run the ball well to have the play action work. It really doesn't matter if they win because either team will be fodder for NE or Denver.

The NFC is the more exciting, play off division, cause any team can win.

If the replacement refs hadn't botched the call at the end of the Green Bay-Seattle game, Seattle would be at home now and Chicago would be in the playoffs.

Seattle will do better in the playoffs than the Bears would, though. Those 3 straight huge victories by Seattle were followed by barely winning a home game at the last minute against the Rams, to salvage a split of the season series with the Ram. The also split their season series against the Cardinals.

More importantly, Seattle gives up 4.5 yards per rush. Only 5 teams in the league give up more. Alfred Morris may have a good game against them since the Redskins are the leading rushing team in the league.

Should be a close game.

The only problem with the Seahawks They only won 2 games that had more wins then loses away from home. They do not have the 12 man at away stadiums. I took Wash in the poll because of that,.
