The weekend is nearing which means it’s time for James & the Swamette to let you know what’s going to happen in the NFL Divisional Playoffs! They went 3 for 4 last weekend and are looking to build on that. Without further ado…here are the picks!
Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos
After getting a chance to rest last round, the big boys are back in action! The first to take the field will be Peyton Manning and the Broncos. The Swamette has consistently picked the ponies whenever she’s had the chance this season and she’s really sure that she doesn’t want to change that now. Broncos 27-20
Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Swamette has been a staunch believer in the Packers all year, due to her love of Uncle Jeff and Grandpa Ed. Even though they are going up against Uncle Brad and Aunt Wendy’s 49ers, the Swamette is sticking by her reliable picks in this round and she’s a believer that the 9ers won’t be able to eliminate the Packers two years in a row. Packers 27-24
Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons
If there is one thing that has been reliable all season long, it has been James’ consistent picking of the Falcons, and that worked to the tune of a 13 win season. He’s heard all of the talk about the Falcons’ inability to win playoff games in recent years, but his faith in the birds to Rise Up is strong and he’s holding to his principles. To his father’s delight… Falcons 21-20
Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots
This game is the one that makes James the most nervous. Everything in him says that it’s the Patriots that will win, but the fodder that was given the Texans along with Arian Foster’s quiet but clear response has a feel like something unexpected could happen. James really came close to taking the Texans, but in the end it’s just too hard to be confident when Brady and Belichek have 2 weeks to get ready for a game. Patriots 31-27
And there you have it! Enjoy the games and the kids will be back next week to wow you even more!
