I am going to keep this short, sweet and to the point.

The AFC-

Wild card games-

If things play out the way they are now, I see the Indianapolis Colts taking out the New York Jets, at home in Indianapolis.

They are a very tough home team and the Jets have been far from dominant as of late.

The Baltimore Ravens face a tough opponent in Kansas City against the Matt Cassel-led Chiefs, but will pull out the win.

Divisional games-

The Colts head to Pittsburgh where, unfortunately for them, they will face a well rested Steelers squad. Pittsburgh's defense comes out on top of the always tough Peyton-led offense.

The Ravens go to New England where they surprise a very stunned and devastatingly shocked Patriot following, in the Patriots first game, bringing back very bad memories from just one season ago.

Championship game-

Baltimore moves on to face the Steelers in Pittsburgh, in an all AFC North Championship game.

The Steelers will win a very hard fought game behind their strong defense, and the arm and legs of Ben Roethlisberger... the quarterback Baltimore has not beaten since the 2006 season, despite playing in the same division.

The NFC-

Wild card games-

The Green Bay Packers head to Philadelphia where they will take out the all too often inconsistent Eagles, despite the legs of Michael Vick. While the New Orleans Saints go into Seattle and dispatch the not so mighty Seahawks, who got in with a 7-9 losing record.

Divisional games-

The Packers continue their unexpected run and take out yet another very shocked top seed, in the first round in Atlanta against the Falcons. I guess its just not a very good year to be the No.1 seeded team in either conference.

The Saints head to Chicago where they will take out the Bears in a very tight game that comes down to a field goal.

Championship game-

New Orleans will be the site of this game, however, the Green Bay Packers continue their unexpected run to the super bowl as the No. 6 seeded team, led by the arm of Aaron Rodgers.


Three of the four division champions in the wild card games are going to be upset, with the exception of Indianapolis. And both No.1 seeds will lose in their very first game in the divisional rounds.

Those are real predictions, no cookie cutter NE/ Atlanta super bowl here.

Now on to the super bowl...


With the help of the very best defense in the league, the Pittsburgh Steelers' Roethlisberger takes out Green Bay's Rodgers in a spectacular game that will go down in history as one of the best.

This game will come down to a final second, sideline tip-toe catch made by Mike Wallace, who just so happened to replace the last super bowl MVP to do the very same thing for us, Santonio Holmes... putting an end to any and all doubts about that decision.

The Pittsburgh Steelers win No.7.
