NFL Playoff Previews and Predictions: Championship Round

Overall: 6-2

Against the Spread: 5-3

Green Bay Packers +7.5 vs. Seattle Seahawks:

The Packers would not have been able to escape past the Cowboys last week without the great play in the second half by Aaron Rodgers. During the second half, Rodgers showed his ability to move around inside the pocket and nearly played a perfect second help. Needless to say, he will need to replicate this performance this week against the best defense. The Seahawks have been terrifying the last few weeks because their defense has been aggressive and the secondary is worthy of the name Legion of Boom. While the defense has been incredible, the offense has taken steps forward due to Russell Wilson’s progress.

Seahawks win 27-17

Indianapolis Colts +7 vs New England Patriots:

Last week, the Colts played their most complete game of the season as they were able to defeat the Broncos on the road. However, the Colts need to replicate their performance this week because they have not been able to defeat Brady and the Pats under Andrew Luck. The Patriots were able to survive a great test last week against the Ravens. The Patriots have been able to stop Luck in the past because their secondary is incredible and they have been able to dominate the time of possession battle.

Patriots win 31-27
