NFL Playoff Predictions

Bengals vs. Texans

This game will not be very close because the Texans have been struggling of late and have gone 1-3 down the stretch, while the Bengals have all the momentum, after winning seven out of their last eight games.  If the Bengals are able to control J.J. Watt, Andy Dalton and A.J. Green will be unstoppable, and they will have one of the best passing they have ever had.  The Bengals will win in a landslide because Matt Schaub will continue to struggle, while the Bengals' offense will role all over the Texans' defense.

Vikings vs. Packers

The Packers are playing the Vikings for the second straight week, but this time the game is at Lambeau Field, where the Packers are always tough to beat.  If the Packers want to win, their offense has to continue to play well, and their defense has to force the Vikings to throw the ball.  The Vikings, who barely beat the Packers at home last week, will struggle in the cold weather, and the lack of experience in the playoffs will hurt them.  The Packers will win this game because they have home field advantage, playoff experience, and they are overall the better team, with the best quarterback in the NFL.
