    Wild-Card Predictem

    Saints (Saints at home in the dome tough to beat) Chiefs (Titans are so vanilla can't see them winning this) Rams (Should be the closest game) Jags (Jags defense should be the difference)

    Wild-Card Predictem

    Alright. Though if anything, I'm pretty much going to stick with the home team all throughout. Other than perhaps the Falcons pulling away with an upset, none of the home teams actually feel like dominant super teams in the Wild Card round that would very likely win on the road. But here's the rub: Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Of all the weekly picks I could make, this one appears to be the most clear to me. I honestly think that the Kansas City Chiefs are going to win this game. Yes, teams like the Tennessee Titans have won the Super Bowl before. Heck, they exceeded all expectations and managed to get there in the past. Looking at you, 2001 New England Patriots. The problem, however, comes from the coaching staff, and Mark Mularkey is so uninspiring and pedestrian that the only reason he still has a head coaching job and probably still have one after their season is over is because they did their job in the season finale and barely escaped the horrors of an NFL collapse. That, and he is by default a vast improvement over Ken Wisenhunt, whose claim to fame was riding the curtails of Kurt Warner on their way to an Arizona Cardinals Super Bowl berth. At least Murlarkey coached a pair of 9-win seasons for the Titans, just like Ben O'Brien before this year. Atlanta Falcons vs. LA Rams: This is probably the hardest game to pick this weekend since both teams are actually really, really good. And yes, the Falcons have had their struggles, but mostly against other playoff teams (Patriots, Bills, Vikings, and regular season splits against Saints and Panthers). The Rams are young and inexperienced in the postseason berth, in spite a likely League MVP year for Todd Gurley provided Tom Brady doesn't come adding a third trophy to his list (and presumably killing any hope of the Patriots winning the Super Bowl, but I digress--seriously media experts, if you don't want to see the Patriots complete their dynasty with a 6th Lombardi trophy, jinx the team with a League MVP for Brady). The Falcons, meanwhile, are the defending NFC Champions, and have a much clearer path to the postseason than the Rams do (all because the Saints and Panthers decided to both eat a bag of excrement last week, thus ensuring the 3-Seed that they wanted to avoid at all cost). The Falcons probably had one of the toughest schedules of any team in the NFL, as they had to duel it out against more playoff teams and contenders than any other team, and other than most of the teams that ultimately made it, had managed to defeat every single one of them. I think the tough call is based more on who I think is the stronger team, and ultimately, I think the Rams have the better overall team than the Falcons do. Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars: Congratulations, Buffalo Bills for ending your miserable 17-year postseason drought. Same to you, for ending your 10-year drought, Jacksonville Jaguars (who haven't even won the division crown in 17 years, either). Anyways, the only reason the Bills might end up pulling away with a major upset here is because Blake Bortles is still the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, and is by far the biggest detriment to his own team. Both teams have lethal defenses, with the Jaguars probably having the edge here in the pass rush. Even though the Bills' offense is built similarly to the Tennessee Titans, who surprisingly match up well against the Jaguars, the Bills have to make do without 30% of their starting offense. In other words, no Shady McCoy this week. Even if he does come in, he won't be 100% due to a sprained ankle last week. Honestly, I probably want the Bills to win it all this year simply because it would make for an incredible story. But I know for a fact that outside of the Titans, the Bills are the least impressive-looking playoff team by far. At least you had to gruel out your season until the bitter end where you needed a miracle in order to get in. Still, the safe pick would have to be Jacksonville over Buffalo, here. Then again, if the Jaguars and Chiefs both win their games, then perhaps there'd be a chance of New England getting eliminated right before the Super Bowl. Because even if the Bills win here, they would still get obliterated by the New England Patriots, just like what happened the last couple of times the two teams played. Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints: The Saints have swept the Panthers during the regular season. And while there has been a precedent in the past of road playoff teams that got swept by their division rivals getting back at 'em in the playoffs (looking at you, catalysts for 18-1), overall, the Panthers don't seem like the most reliable picks. The upside is that if the Panthers do get past the Saints, the road back to the Super Bowl suddenly becomes clear to them. The only teams they might need to worry about then are the Rams and Falcons. They can take on a Wentzless Eagles squad even in freezing cold Philadelphia, and they're one of the few teams not at all afraid of Minnesota's defense. However, the same can be said for the Saints, with the only difference being the concern of having to get past the Vikings. Overall, the safe pick would be the Saints here.

    I hate to say Chiefs but Arrowhead is a tough place to play. A tough place that also isn't experiencing the ultimate Jack Frost Arctic Attack that's happening on the East coast. Give me Chiefs, Rams, Panthers, and Jags.

    Guys, For many years you have asked to make a Knobbe.org/TecmoBowl.org shirt. Well, guess what?! It finally happened! This is a ringspun cotton shirt with a soft ink print. It is super comfy. 100% of all shirt proceeds go to T-Borg. This is important because there is a big site upgrade coming and with that comes added expenses. The goal of this is to offset its cost and to help paying for all server costs moving forward. We have big plans for the Borg coming up. Let's do this! You can scoop the shirt here: tecmobowl.co/TborgTee $22+shipping $24 for 2XL & 3XL.

    Baxter (TB) @ Raif (DEN). Raif wins toss and takes DEN. I go TB. Raif with the ball first faces a 4th and 4 from his 15. I stop the RB short. JJ td ensues. I'm up 7-0. Next Denver drive...fumble on his own 30. Bucs recover. Testeverde tosses a ball to the 2 yard line and then scampers in for the 14-0 lead. Next Denver drive...Hamilton (not Haddix)...gets the jj int. At that point, with 4:18 left in the 2nd quarter, I was declared the winner. So...moving on.

    RD4 (tecmopsycho) 20 (Ryan11p) 17 http://www.tecmoplayers.com/?page_id=72&game=71186 Great game by both players. No lost fumbles. Surprisingly many covered receivers by both Mayhew and Haddix with no picks to show for it. Rypien farts managed 7/12 while Vinny did more wheeling and went 1/6. Skins scored by mixing it up and hitting Sanders on a timed JJ at WR2. Key play for the Bucs was a 4th and 7 FG try late in first half which was blocked by Green, but scooped up by Christie (not on the X and goes phantom) for a score making it 7-7. Skins cored a second TD with a Byner run and notched a short FG along the way. Bucs made a FG which was a near sack by a diving Darrell Green and scored late tieing the game at 17. Redskins get a descent drive and try 3 straight pass attempts, but missed the best opportunity on an overpress. Lohmiller lined up nicely for the game winner with 18 ticks left. I know some people think Ryan and others are playing "above" their ability. They are wrong. I would take Ryan on my squad any day of the week Keep it up man. GG Neither one of us caught the breaks in this game. I'd rather that be the case than Tecmo getting involved.
