Nah I think the Chiefs will beat the Steelers. They were picking up some steam again after the Titans loss, and I think they have the little bits of special game changers (Tyreek Hill) that will make the difference. Still a massive shame about Derek Carr breaking his leg; Oakland with him starting had the making of New England, I think.theadore wrote:Wildcard round went largely as expected I guess.... but some very tasty semi's in the making.
Patriots should be too much for the Texans, and Steelers looked very dangerous so would expect them to overwhelm the Chiefs. Falcons/Seahawks and Cowboys/Packers should be cracking games. I was expecting the Packers to finally come unstuck again, and expect them to again.... but they have a chance if they play against Dallas like they did second half against the Giants. Falcons are probably underdogs on paper, but Matt Ryan/Julio Jones can surely score against anyone at the moment.
Difficult to pick on the other side though; Cowboys have been playing well all year, but Green Bay destroyed a very strong New York Giants defence in that second half. Falcons/Seahawks will be interesting, Ryan's had an amazing season and it'll be interesting how the strong Seahawks secondary fare. I don't think they're as strong as a few years back. Having said that, Russel Wilson, Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin are all really hitting form at the right time too.
