It is week three of the NFL playoffs. Week Two is done and we correctly picked 3 of 4*. Looking to ride that streak to the Super Bowl.

NFC Match-up #1
San Francisco at Seattle
Analysis: Congrats to SF for winning 2 tough road games. I think 3 is as difficult as it gets and throw in the crowd of Seattle and it will be tough. I’ve been impressed with Seattle’s D and Russell Wilson’s ability to step it up when the game is on the line.

AFC Match-up #2
New England at Denver
Analysis: This is where New England’s lack of receiver depth gets them. I think the combination of Denver’s passing game and their tough D come together and bring Peyton back to the Super Bowl.

 

Pick-em Note: I am a firm believer that the NFL somehow ends up with story-lines (not that it is rigged). I am banking on the Mountain West Super Bowl (Seattle/Denver). If for some reason it is note Denver/Seattle, I firmly believe that it will be an East/West Super Bowl of New England vs San Francisco. Those are your two potential match-ups. No matter what it will be the Old Guard vs the New Kids in the QB show.

*Last week we incorrectly picked Carolina to win.
