If you haven’t seen it already, check out the new site that I am writing for The Football Standard. The NFL Draft Monsters team has combined with Draft Hub and many other talented people to form this new site and it’s going to have great content on there throughout this draft season. I’ll still post articles on here when I can, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to post everything on here that I write for the site. But I appreciate you guys reading and I’ll post things on here when I can.
Today I’m going to post some Wild Card picks, so we’ll see how I do!
I am picking Cincinnati here. Almost no one is picking Houston, but their defense has been a problem since November and the Bengals should be able to run on them thanks to their quality offensive line. I’m not a big Dalton fan, but Matt Schaub hasn’t been anything to write home about lately either and hasn’t seemed to be playing confident lately. Dalton has had an up and down year, but I think this game will come down to which QB can limit his mistakes (IE, interceptions) and which defense slows down the run game better. If I have to be on one of those I’ll take the Bengals.
This is an easy pick- Green Bay. Minnesota needed every bounce and break that they got last week and they beat the Packers by 3 points at home in a packed Metrodome (I would know, I was there). Now the Vikings must travel to Lambeau and play out in the cold which the Vikings historically struggle to do since they play in a Dome. If you are picking the Vikings in this game you are just asking to be wrong, because the Packers and their fans are not happy that they lost to one of their rivals and let them into the playoffs, and they are going to beat them by two touchdowns. Sorry Vikings fans, but the game against the Packers in week 17 was your Super Bowl. You won, but your season ends tonight.
I’ll post my predictions for the Sunday games either later tonight or tomorrow morning.
