Divisional Round Schedule and Personal Picks

leave a comment »

Eight teams remain after round one of the playoffs, as four teams were eliminated this week, the winning four will now move on to play against the teams who earned a first round bye in the Divisional Round.

AFC:
The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Boston to play against the second seeded New England Patriots, after beating the Kansas City Chiefs 45-44, on Saturday January 11th 8:15. My picks for this game will have to be the Colts. Throughout the playoffs the Colts have been and will be the underdog. Yes they make mistakes, but they also have to ability to correct them. It will be close, it might look impossible, but I am sticking with the Colts to win.

After beating the Cinncinnati Bengals 27-10, the San Diego Chargers will travel back to Denver to play against the number one seed Broncos, Sunday January 12th at 4:30. My pick for this game would have to be the Broncos due to the fact that they’re coming off a bye week, plus are getting Wes Welker back as well. And they have Peyton Manning, that also helps.

NFC:

After winning their first ever on the road playoff game against the Philidelphia Eagles 26-24, the New Orleans Saints will go to play against the number one seeded Seattle Seahawks Saturday January 11th at 4:35. My pick, Seahawks. The Seahawks are at home, with the loudest crowd in the NFL, (formerly held by Saints fans) and despite the fact that the Saints won a playoff road game once, I’m not holding my breath for two in a row.

And lastly the 49ers will advance after beating the Green Bay Packers for the third time in a row, 23-20. They will travel to play a rematch game against the second seeded Carolina Panthers, Sunday January 12th at 1.00. Pick, 49ers. Carolina is good, but at the moment they are not as good as the 49ers. When they beat the 49ers earlier this season, they were beating a team not at their best. The 49ers are at their best.

Results from Colts vs. Chargers Game 11, Week 12

with one comment

The Game: For those of you that missed the game on Sunday night, the Indianapolis, Colts played against the San Diego Chargers at Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis, for the sixth time against each other.

The Result: Chargers take the win 36-14 making it the fifth time (out of six) that the Chargers have beaten the Colts.

Important Stats: Everyone has said that Philip Rivers (#17) has a very bright future and a great career in front of him, this I agree with, Rivers so far rivers has thrown 3,362 yards this season almost tying for a record set by (add name). But has been sacked 25 times (tied with two others) for 5th worst in the NFL.

Peyton Manning (#18) on the other hand as been MVP of the year four times, thrown 3,344 yards this season and has been sacked 13 times 2nd best in the NFL. But unfortunately has thrown eleven interceptions which have lead to two losses in a row.

Highlights: In the first quarter, Colts lead by four, sacking Rivers twice and forcing the Chargers to punt, while making their first touchdown. Second quarter saw another Colts touchdown and Manning throwing an interception which lead to another field goal for San Diego. Halftime, Colts are winning 14-13.

Third quarter, Manning under pressure, tried to throw the ball away, but it was still caught by Stephen Cooper and run back for a touchdown. Then again, Manning threw the ball intended for Pierre Garçon, which was picked off, and lead to another Charger touchdown. Forth quarter ends in two more interception from Manning and a win for the Chargers 36-14.

Next Games: Next week (week 13), the Colts play at home against the Dallas Cowboys, and the Chargers play in Oakland against the Oakland Raiders.

Other Games: As for the other game results in week 12;

  • Houston Texans beat the Tennessee Titans 20-0
  • New York Giants defeated Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20
  • Miami Dolphins beat Oakland Raiders 33-17
  • Kansas City Chiefs beat Seattle Seahawks 42-24
