    Default NFL Playoff Thread

    It's playoff time! Who are you tipping/rooting for?

    AFC
    First round bye: Patriots, Chiefs
    Wild card playoffs: Raiders @ Texans, Dolphins @ Steelers

    NFC
    First round bye: Cowboys, Falcons
    Wild card playoffs: Giants @ Packers, Lions @ Seahawks

    I'm hoping the Giants can make it past the Packers, but it will be tough, Green Bay are on a roll at the moment. I think the Steelers may surprise a few in the playoffs.
    If we do end up with a Patriots v Cowboys Super Bowl I may have to boycott the whole thing.

    Wild card weekend predictions: Texans, Steelers, Giants (we can do it!), Seahawks

    My poor Raiders. What a horrible end to a hopeful season. I guess they are still in, and could technically beat Houston, but man they sure looked ugly yesterday without Carr.

    McGloin vs. Savage. A matchup for the ages. I am willing to pay $75 million for the opportunity to watch this matchup.

    Meanwhile, the world is waiting in anticipation of another Tom Brady Super Bowl loss to the one, and the only Eli "3LI" Manning, Eli "The GOAT" Manning, Eli "Tom Brady" Manning, Eli "Elisha" Manning.

    Because only Vegas would set the odds for the Giants at 18-1.

    The Giants will have to win in Green Bay and most likely Dallas to just reach the NFC Championship game. Even allowing for the Giants already beating Dallas twice this season (and the fact they have done this on the road playoff run before), you can see why the bookies aren't favouring them. The thought of the Giants beating the Patriots yet again is a nice one though.

    Got both games correct last night - but both games were pretty terrible! Hoping for a bit more excitement tonight.

    EDIT: OK, three bad games now...

    Hopefully the Packers will crush Dallas next weekend.

    As a Bears fan my season is predictably over, but my colleague is a huge Seahawks fan so I hope they go as far as possible. Good start by battering the Lions.

    Falcons looked pretty good yesterday, and the Patriots unsurprisingly won. Rooting for the Packers today, I think they and the Steelers will win.

    Urgh, the Packers. I really would have liked them and the Pats both to lose, but as expected, they both made it.

    7/8 from my playoff predictions so far, not bad (damn Giants).

    Bwahahahahahaha bye bye Dallas. Two playoff wins in twenty years.

    These playoffs haven't been great for competitive games. Hoping Falcons can win the Super Bowl, but obviously the Patriots will win, because as we know only the
    Giants and Eli Manning can beat Brady and co in the big game!

    Yeah, I watched both games last night because I don't value my sleep any more. The Falcons destroyed the Green Bay Mermen. They'll be tough to beat but if anyone can step up in the World Series it'll be Jim Brody! The guy is a legend

    Bring on Feb 12th!
