Here we are folks…the NFL’s version of the final 4 and we have some damn good match ups. So far this playoffs I am 6-2 on my picks so lets see how this week turns out.
First game of the day we have the Green Bay Packers and their insane run since starting 4-6 going against Matt Ryan and the Falcons. Green Bays WR’s are banged up to say the least and likely will be without Jordy Nelson once again…even if he does play what kind of Jordy are we getting? not the Pro bowl version that for sure. Julio Jones and Matt Ryan against the terrible GB CB’s? Dak and Dez lit them up last week so expect more of the same this week with Julio getting 125 yards and 2 TDs
Green Bay 17 Atlanta 28
Pittsburgh traveling to New England for a chance at the Superbowl? this game has everything lined up to be an instant classic, I do think the 0 TD’s not scored last week against KC was a fluke and that will not happen again. the Steelers’ Defense needs to harass Tom Brady early and often to have a chance. Malcolm Butler vs Antonio Brown is the match up to watch, Butler is one of the best CBs in the game and is looking for a huge payday…he can go a long way to guaranteeing that today. Let me remind you though this Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the playoffs at home so it is very…VERY hard to pick against them. Pittsburgh will be valiant in their effort but will fall just short.
Pittsburgh 21 New England 27
Atlanta Vs New England
