Wild Card Round

Three out of the four games are division games!

#5 Houston over #4 Tennessee
The surprise Titans season comes to an end with a home loss against the Texans 23-20 OT

#6 Atlanta over #3 Tampa Bay
It's tough to beat a team three times in one season. The Bucs sweep regular season, lose 27-17

Beast Mode too much for the G-men. Seattle wins 24-16

Divisional Round

On a last play Hail Mary....kidding, last-minute Lacy fumble costs the Packers. 27-23

#5 Seattle over #1 San Francisco
Defense all over the place in this one. Seattle wins 16-12

Super Bowl XVLIII - New England over Seattle

I love the Patriots this year. The Aaron Hernandez situation is in the past. They have two young WRs Kembrell Thompkins, and Aaron Dobson who will pick up the slack there. Danny Amendola, if he stays healthy, is a better version of Wes Welker, and the Patriots defense has been beefing up for the past 2-3 seasons and will finally be the reason why they get back to the big dance and win it all.

Patriots 26, Seahawks 16

Super Bowl XVLIII MVP: Tom Brady
