Playoff Seeding - RFlagg - 12-30-2012 08:54 PM
We now know all except 1 seed for the playoffs this season.
Looking at the matchups in the wild card round, not a bad lineup for the first round.
Colts at Ravens
Bengals at Texans
Seahawks at Redskins/Cowboys
Vikings at Packers
Over in the AFC, I think both the Colts and the Bengals are fully capable of upsetting the higher seeds. the Colts have been playing really well as of late and the Bengals are one of those teams that just seems to somehow wins games.
In the NFC, I think the Packers are going to be ticked about losing today, and I think that'll be all the motivation they need to beat the Vikings (we better hope they do, I could see Peterson putting 250-300 up on our D). As for the Seahawks, if they play Dallas, I think they win, but I think it's more likely they'll play the Redskins, and I think the Redskins might be able to squeak out a victory.

I will preface this by saying that I have full confidence in the Falcons winning against any team, but I rather play AP and the Vikings than Rodgers and the Packers.
I think that we can easily handle Ponder. He has a little mobility but not enough to concern me. AP is certainly a beast, but he is truly the only threat on that team as opposed to Rodgers, Jennings, James Jones, Nelson and a 3-4 defense with a sack specialist.
Looking at the whole team, I rather play the Vikings defense as well. That D-line is pretty stout though, but I think the screen game will kill them. The Packers were killing them with the same exact screen play over and over and over

Also the Bengals and texans game is a rematch of last year if I'm not mistaken.

I dont know. We have been playing really good defense against top QB's. Ponder's lolwut it was completed might be too tricky for our D to handle

Hahaha that's true but then again. We put that amoeba defense on Ponder and he may say lolwut.

Well the good thing for you is that we will not have to play the packers until the NFC championship if they can make it through 49ers

The Texans have to be concerned about getting this matchup. The Bengals are bad matchup for the Texans.
The Bengals have a pretty stout and athletic D-line, which makes the the running game that the Texans deploy difficult to succeed.
The Bengals have a strong deep passing attack which is very difficult for the Texans to cover, mainly because they mostly play man to man defense.

I fill bad for the teams that stand in the way of a Peyton/Brady match up in the AFC Championship game. The Union Goons wearing stripes will be hell bent on making that happen.

Yea I think they will beat the 49ers. It's a toss up as far as who I would rather play out of those two teams.
I rather play 49ers defense, but I also rather play Kaepernick. I think he is very suspect and can be easily handled.
But the 49ers also have a stout run game that would be difficult to maintain, especially given the way they run it and the Packers run game isn't anything to write home about.
