    NFL Playoffs

    The Bengals probably need their own thread, but NO provided a nice image to kickoff a more all-purpose one.

    The Lions/Saints game will be fun to watch. I think Detroit will put a lotta points on the board, but there's no stopping Brees & co in that dome. I think it'll be a 45-38 game or something close to it.

    Denver's D is probably good enough to make their game ugly, which will keep them in it, but I don't think Tebow can move the ball against Pittsburgh. If it's close and Tebow gets a chance late in the 4th quarter anything can happen though.

    Giants and Falcons will probably be close, but NYG seems to be getting it going just in time for a playoff run. Although I'm guessing the bye seeds in the NFC would like to see the Giants get knocked out on wildcard weekend.

    Bengals and Texans...I'm a homer, who dey! Bengals 24 Texans 14

    I give Denver a decent chance if Roethlisberger really did have a setback with that ankle, because he looked just awful in that SF game right after he first hurt it. Of course, Tebow looks awful most of the time, but they're used to dealing with that.

    Denver beating the loathsome Stealers would be the second-best thing to a Bengals win this weekend. It would immediately stamp 2012 as a great year only eight days in!

    The most competitive game will be the Bengals Texans.
    The least competitive game will be the Steelers Broncos.
    The game with the most interest will be the Saints and Lions.
    The game with the most media generated interest will be the Giants Falcons.

    I'm not so sure about that. With Mendenhall out, Roethlisburger hobbled and the altitide, Denver's very good defense may be able to wreak some havoc.

    And I think the Saints absolutely steamroll the Lions. (Which means, of course, an OT nailbiter.)

    I agree on both points. Saints have an amazing O line.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    My picks for this weekend:
    Texans
    Saints
    Falcons
    Steelers

    I could see the two early games going either way, and with all of the hype the Saints seems to be getting I can envision a scenario where the Lions win if they can keep it close. I don't see how the Broncos beat the Steelers unfortunately, even with Mendenhall and Clark out and Ben hobbled. The Steelers should win that game with 10 points scored.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    I think the Broncos pull the upset. Call me crazy but this is the kind of game a team like the Steelers can overlook. I seem to remember a Seahawks team that got into the playoffs last year with a losing record that was hosting the defending Super Bowl champion Saints last season and everybody predicted a Saints blowout.

    Of course, I guess it depends on which Tim Tebow shows up.

    I think the Falcons/Giants game is over by halftime.

    Tebow is having the best game of his life at the best time possible.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'm sure you spent a lot of time watching him in his last three games.
