Aldon Smith has been held sackless since Justin Smith went out. One of those games was against the Arizona Cardinals, who play with 0 offensive lineman.
Alf is not going to run over the SEA D that will be getting Browner back like he did against Dallas. Biggest key is RGIII's knee. SEA is traveling on the road, but I still like them in this game over Wash.
SEA against ATL. On a neutral field, i like SEA. At SEA, I like SEA. At Atlanta, I have to go with ATL. SEA will have traveled to Washington, back to SEA, then all the way to ATL. A lot of traveling in a short time period.
SF against GB. Pass rush isn't the same without Justin Smith. If he can't go in this game, I really like the Packers. I really thought SF was a physical and intimidating defense. Strong in all areas. After what SEA did to them, I think that intimdation factor is no longer there.
ATL against GB. Two teams that can't run the ball, but can throw it all well as anybody. Rodgers is money in domes, remember his last playoff game in the Georgia Dome? That being said, not having a bye could end up hurting the Pack. They've done it before, but that not mean they'll do it again. My head tells me that the Pack have every advantage in this game. But something tells me, if Atlanta can get that 1st playoff win, they'll make the Super Bowl. Purely just a gut pick, nothing else.
ATL vs DEN/NE in the Super Bowl
Brady is 3-0 in his last 3 against the Bronco's. The Manning bro's are 3-0 in their last 3 playoff games against the Pats. I think Den/NE will be a coin flip.
