2012 NFL Playoff Expert Picks: Divisional Round

Much has been made of New England's poor defense and whether or not Tom Brady can carry the team. We'll soon find out. (http://www.thefamishedpatriot.com)

It almost time for the Divisional round of the playoffs to begin, and there are some pretty interesting story lines going. Can Houston beat Baltimore for the first time ever? Can New England still win in the postseason? And can Green Bay’s run be stopped?

Here at SoB (in red) and SoNY (in green), we’ve brought you our choices for how those games will turn out. It’ll be worth two points for anyone who guesses the winner of any game, one point if they can guess combined touchdown totals of the two teams to within one (or two points if they guess the total exactly right) and one point if they can guess the total passing yardage of each game’s top passer to within 50 (or two points if they get within 10).

As for the questions to be answered, everyone thinks New England will finally get on the winning track. The Saints and Ravens aren’t too far behind, each getting all but one vote. The Packers/Giants are by far the closet game, with the visiting Giants getting a majority of picks over the one-loss Packers.

So it should definitely be an exciting round. Be sure to check below for the full picks, and check back Sunday evening for the results.
