NFL Wild Card Preview

With the first round of the playoffs set to start this weekend here is a preview of what to expect. (Including expert predictions)

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans Why the Texans will win: Deshaun Watson and Deandre Hopkins have connected 115 times this season. J.J. Watt and the defense could force just enough pressure to force Andrew Luck into a critical mistake. Also, they are at home. Why the Colts will win: They are the hottest team in the NFL right now going 9-1 in their last 10 games. Darius Leonard has transformed the defense. Andrew Luck is the comeback player of the year. Coworker’s prediction: Texans My prediction: Colts

Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys Why the Cowboys will win: The defense can and will make enough plays to bail out a mostly listless offense. Amari Cooper will catch enough deep bombs to give Dallas the edge. Why the Seahawks will win: Dak Prescott doesn’t scare anybody with his arm and Seattle can stop his legs. Russell Wilson will carry the team on his back for the victory. Coworker’s prediction: Cowboys My prediction: Seahawks

LA Chargers at Baltimore Ravens Why the Ravens will win: Lamar Jackson. The Chargers have to fly across the country for a game that starts at 10:05 their time. The Ravens won in LA a couple of weeks ago. Why the Chargers will win: They are good. They have Melvin Gordon and Joey Bosa. Keenan Allen is the best route-runner. Coworker’s prediction: Ravens My prediction: Ravens

Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears Why the Bears will win: Khalil Mack and their defense. Why the Eagles will win: Nick Foles magic. Coworker’s prediction: Bears My prediction: Bears
