2009-2010 NFL Playoff Picks: Divisional Round

We're all excited to see what will happen in the Divisional Round (John Madden).

The Wildcard Round was filled with plenty of surprises, leading to what should be a fun divisional round. The Colts can’t seem to get it together in the divisional round after resting players; will a new coach and an opponent who isn’t the Chargers make a difference? The Bengals are one thing, but how will Mark Sanchez fare against the red-hot Chargers (who have won 11 straight games)? In what promises to be another shootout, will the Saints and Cardinals play at the Superdome or the O.K. Corral? And will Brad Childress and Brett Favre put aside their talk show squabbles long enough to beat the suddenly lethal (How ’bout them) Cowboys?

Of note is Mike P getting all four teams in the wildcard round correct, and despite being the only one to do so, ending up one point out of the lead. Others are staying in the game by being good picking up points on touchdowns and passing yards. Additionally, honorary SoB expert and resident WWE Superstar John Cena has cast his votes for winners in the Divisional Round. Out of the 16 possible combinations of teams, Cena disagrees with all of our experts. Be sure to check out his picks.

As with last round, the nine remaining SoB experts picked game winners, total combined touchdowns, and the top passer’s yardage.

  • Correctly picking the winner of a game is worth two points.
  • Picking the number of combined touchdowns to within one is worth one point, or two points if guessed exactly right.
  • Picking the top passer’s passing yard total to within 50 is worth one point, or two points if guessed to within 10.
  • Any incorrect pick is worth zero points.

  1. KC might be a genius picking the Jets.
