Cincinnati Bengals – Houston Texans

This will probably be the best game of the weekend. The Bengals have been pretty surprising this year. They get rid of Chad Ochocinco, T. O. and Carson Palmer and somehow make the playoffs. The Texans seemed snake bitten with injuries and won the AFC South for the first time in franchise history. We have two great stories colliding in this game and I’m pumped.

Bengals are solid on both sides of the ball and I think that is going to make the difference. Both teams are starting rookie QB’s and either one has the potential to implode at any time. The Texans have a great offense but are still a bit suspect on defense.

That’s why I’m picking the Bengals to move on to the second round of the playoffs.

 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers – Denver Broncos

I’m sure everyone will be talking about Tim Tebow in this game. And even though I wrote that Tebow was touched by God, I think this is where the magic stops. Sure, the Steelers are banged up on offense but the defense is still strong and I think they will wreak havoc on Tebow.

The Broncos have lost their last three games and it looks like Tebow’s confidence may be shaken a bit. This probably will be a low scoring game and barring some divine intervention, the Steelers will walk away with the victory.
