2014 NFL Divisional Round Picks

San Diego @ Denver

The magical run for San Diego continues this week in Denver against a Bronco team that the Chargers have beaten in Denver this year which should give them plenty of confidence this week. Still, they are going up against one of the greatest offenses in the history of the game lead by the all but certain MVP Peyton Manning who is putting together one if not his best season to date. The fact than San Diego did go into Denver and beat the Broncos will keep Denver focused on the final prize and not look over the Chargers. Denver won’t have a repeat of last year against the Ravens and get past San Diego with relative ease. Denver 37 San Diego 20

Indianapolis @ New England

Well we’ve seen this matchup before in the playoffs, but this one will have a very different feel to it. Not Brady vs Manning, but now Brady vs Luck. After their improbable comeback win against Kansas City last week, the Colts head outside to play the 2 seed New England Patriots why now know no lead is safe when facing the Colts. The Colts have not had the best luck (no pun intended) when playing in New England and I expect this weekend to be no different. Brady and the Pats do what the Chiefs couldn’t do and put the Colts away for good. New England 28 Indianapolis 19

New Orleans @ Seattle

How many times have you seen the Lynch run this week? I think my count is up to at least 15. We can only hope for a moment as memorable as that one this week when the Saints play the Seahawks. The last meeting between these two teams was less than a spectacular contest so lets hope we get a better game than a 34-7 blowout by the Seahawks. While I do believe the game will be closer than the previous meeting, I think the result will be the same with the Seahawks defeating the Saints. Seattle 26 New Orleans 17

San Francisco @ Carolina

San Francisco is riding high after their last second win last week in Green Bay and look to go 2 for 2 on the road this postseason when they play Carolina whose leader and heisman winner Cam Newton is making his first playoff appearance after winning the NFC South. San Francisco is biting at the bit to return to the Super Bowl and winning their last six games makes them one of the hottest teams in the NFL, facing Carolina who are winners of 11 out of their last 12 including a tight 10-9 victory over the Niners in week 10. I think the experience of the 49ers will prove to be the difference maker this week and they will meet Seattle next week with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. San Francisco 31 Carolina 26
