In Rematch Week, Will We See Repeats? [NFL Divisional Round Playoff Predictions]
Saturday, January 9
New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals
4:30 pm EST, NBC
FanIQ Consensus: Bengals 23, Jets 21
My pick: Bengals 23, Jets 13
-The Jets beat them last week, but let's be serious... that was a meaningless game. This time, with the Bengals throwing everything they've got at Mark Sanchez, look for the interceptions to mount, and the Bengals to prevail.
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys
8:00 pm EST, NBC
FanIQ Consensus: Cowboys 25, Eagles 22
My pick: Eagles 27, Cowboys 20
-The Cowboys have looked great lately, but there's still some huge question marks about Tony Romo in the postseason. If they win this game, I'm pretty confident that they could beat the Vikings. It might not be their time for a playoff win yet, though.
Sunday January 10
Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots
1:00 pm EST, CBS
FanIQ Consensus: Patriots 24, Ravens 21
My pick: Patriots 20, Ravens 13
-The Patriots are a great home team. They were undefeated at Gillette Stadium this year. However, the playoffs are a completely different animal. The Ravens are built for the playoffs, and Ray Rice is the perfect player to beat the Patriots. They struggle aagainst great running backs, and Rice is versatile, and one of the best in the business. I think Bill Belichick will find a way to neutralize him, and the Patriots should be able to win. Joe Flacco is no threat to them.
Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals
4:30 pm EST, FOX
FanIQ Consensus: Packers 26, Cardinals 23
My pick: Cardinals 30, Packers 28
-I like the Packers, and I like Aaron Rodgers. But this Cardinals team has some solid playoff experience, and Larry Fitzgerald is the guy I'd want on my team first, in a big situation. I have a feeling they'll pull this one off at home.
