Playoff Picture Looks Exciting

With 4 teams vying for first place in the AFC North in Week 13, things are heating up to meltdown conditions even in the icy north…

The Bengals, who tied a game, are 7-3-1 while the Ravens, Steelers and Browns all have a 7-4-0 record with 2 division wins. These 4 teams will duke it out in their respective divisional games for supremacy over the AFC North.

Meanwhile, the New England Patriots (9-2-0) are running away with the AFC East (and the number 1 seed) unless someone can stop them.

A similar situation is developing in the NFC with the Arizona Cardinals (9-2-0) running away with the NFC West and the number 1 seed.

The NFC South is trying really hard to see how low a team’s record can be and still make the playoffs. The Atlanta Falcons (4-7-0) are leading the division with a 4-0 division record, having beaten each of its division rivals at least once (and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers twice).

 vs.

The Philadelphia Eagles (8-3-0) and the Dallas Cowboys (8-3-0) are vying for first place in the NFC East. One of these teams will win the division and the other will likely make the playoffs as a wild card. This week’s Thanksgiving game between the Cowboys and Eagles will decide who takes the division.

vs.

Another game with playoff implications this Thanksgiving Day is the Seattle Seahawks (7-4-0) trip to San Francisco to take on the 49ers (7-4-0) for sole possession of 2nd place in the NFC West, behind the Cardinals. The winner will be hoping that the Detroit Lions (7-4-0) lose to the Chicago Bears (5-6-0), also on Thanksgiving Day!

vs.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (8-3-0) are looking like the likely winners of the NFC North unless Detroit has something to say about it. But the New England Patriots (9-2-0) will be coming to town this weekend to see if they can knock them down a peg.

NFC Championship Matchups

This weekend, the Seattle Seahawks will face the San Francisco 49ers for the third time in the same season and the second time in Seattle. The Seahawks feel they have the edge with their 12th man on the sidelines (well, the stadium which is on both sides of the sidelines). They also have one of the most dominant secondaries in the NFL and the most dominant defense in the league.

Richard Sherman is excited to take on his division rivals again and he is also not worried about having to cover just Anquan Boldin this time around – http://mmqb.si.com/2014/01/16/richard-sherman-byron-maxwell-seattle-seahawks-nfc-championship/

The majority of TV analysts that I have been watching have chosen the 49ers to win this rematch – citing the offensive capabilities of the 49ers with Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis being favored to make big plays down the field while the Seahawks have failed to score a lot of points in the last few games – especially when facing strong opposing defenses like the Saints and 49ers. Of course, anything can happen on any given Sunday, and with the 12th man raising havoc with the 49ers offense and hyping up the Seahawks’ defense – it would not surprise me to see a game where Seattle’s defense scores more points than their offense. It will mean that the 49ers running attack must be stifled early in the game and kept stifled into the 4th quarter. In either case, the game will be massively exciting: Seahawks, 49ers collide with intent – ESPN

Who must the 49ers concentrate on when the Seahawks offense is on the field? Marshawn Lynch is the toughest weapon on the Seattle team – and the 49ers will have to stop Lynch from getting more than 50 yards in this game. Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman are betting that they can stop the beast from getting any more Skittles this Sunday!
