NFL Thoughts Wild Card Weekend Edition

Just wanted to take a quick look at the teams and matchups heading into Wild Card Weekend.


New Orleans:  Pretty sure they aren’t thrilled about having to travel to Seattle, but you’ve got to start your title defense somewhere.

Green Bay: They head into Philly playing some pretty good football.  Teams may wish the Bears had knocked them out when they had the chance.

Philadelphia: Eagles didn’t look great in their last meaningful game against Minnesonta, they need to come out ready to play or else the Pack will make them pay.

Atlanta: Home field throughout will make them extremely tough to handle in the NFC.

Chicago: They just kept winning and winning.  It will be interesting to see how Cutler handles his first playoff appearance.

Seattle: No comment!


Kansas City: They are much improved, but will they just be happy to be there?

New York: Rex Ryan will always talk the talk.  He says this game against Peyton is “personal”.  Will he finally be able to knock him off?

Baltimore: Been through all the wars over the years, they should beat Kansas City on experience alone.

Indianapolis: If Manning and this group make a serious run, it would be shocking.  For once, Rex Ryan might be speechless.

Pittsburgh: Sitting in a good spot with the #2 seed.  Would they fare any better in a rematch against New England in Foxborough?

New England: As always, peaking at the right time.  They’ve had their way with all the serious contenders and appear nearly impossible to stop.

Agree, disagree, agree to disagree.  It doesn’t matter.  Feel free to scroll down and leave a comment.
